What is Homeopathy?

image of medicineHomeopathy is a natural medicine for treating and/or curing disease based on the administration of small doses of substances called remedies that in large amounts produce symptoms in healthy individuals similar to those of the disease itself. Homeopathy originated in Germany in the first half of the nineteenth century with the work of Samuel Hahnemann (1791-1843), but its roots go back to the father of medicine, Hippocrates (c. 460-c. 370 B.C.), who wrote down many treatments similar to those promoted by homeopathy. In a word, these pioneers of medicine taught us to "treat like with like, fight poison with poison."

It is not really about fighting a disease. It is about informing and directing our own immune system (which already knows how to heal our body) to activate healing response. It is still a mystery to medical science how somewhere along the way our body stops repairing itself. Most chronic diseases are result of our immune system not doing its job. It is believed and proved that homeopathic remedies can reactivate this healing response.

Bruce Lipton, the author of "Biology of Belief", discovered that our biology or health is hugely affected by our beliefs and perceptions not by our genetic composition. It is no longer accepted that we are victims of our inherited genes. Bad genes are responsible for only 2-5% of total diseases. By saying that we are getting our power back, we are 100% responsible for our well-being and we can change our health today. Our command center is no longer believed to be the nucleus but it's actually the membrane of the cell including thousands of receptors that receive various signals from the outside environment. The perception of these signals is what controls our behaviour including our healing. Signals can be anything from molecules (prescription drugs, hormones, vitamins, poison, food), energy (homeopathic remedies) to thoughts (our own attitude). Bruce stated that 1/3 of all healing that is recorded by conventional medicine is by placebo effect. Your own disbelief also plays a very important part in healing. It can overwrite taking strong medications like morphine which is proved scientifically to have a response in our body and have absolutely no effect.

Your own beliefs are very crucial. When people have doubts and don't take it seriously it simply won't work. It's probably wiser that one tries something that they believe will.

What is Homeopathic treatment?

Homeopathic treatment is based on helping clients achieve health and well being. It provides a consultation, physical assessment, medical advice on nutrition and physical exercise and homeopathic medicine or remedies. The goal is to find the cause of the disease, symptom or ailment, which could be emotional, environmental, viral, diet related, etc. Once the cause is identified Homeopaths try to make our clients aware of it and encourage them to eliminate it. Once this is done, the body restores to a homeostatic state and becomes healthy again. However, the cause could be very intertwined between many different planes and it may be harder to identify. In this kind of scenario, Homeopaths pay attention to symptoms that manifested on a client.

Symptoms in Homeopathy are seen as the organism's only way of expressing the underlying disease. Each symptom is an intelligent expression of a complex living system out of balance. Once all the symptoms and modalities are taken into consideration, Homeopaths find the most suited remedy (homeopathic medicine) for that person. The homeopathic physician, views a person as a physical, emotional, and mental unity, so that all symptoms are considered to be part of one disease process. Thus, Homeopaths would treat a patient with many complaints using only one medicine at a time.

How is Homeopathy different from modern medicine?

image of the differenceThe conventional doctor views disease as being localized in organs or tissues. Thus arthritis is understood as a joint disease, neuritis is a nerve disease, angina as a heart disease. The treatment involves one or more drugs for each different problem, resulting in multiple drug therapy for patients with more than one complaint. The Homeopathic physician, on the other hand, views a person as a physical, emotional, and mental unity, so that all symptoms are considered to be part of one disease process. Thus, the Homeopath would treat a patient with many complaints with only one medicine at a time.

Modern medicine tends to view symptoms as something bothersome to be gotten rid of or as a problem to be controlled. In contrast, the Homeopathic doctor has great interest in patient's symptoms because he realizes that they are the organism's only way of expressing the underlying disease. Each symptom is an intelligent expression of a complex living system out of balance. Thus, the Homeopath listens carefully to everything the patient says. The patient is encouraged to speak freely about any problem, complaint or symptom no matter how small or peculiar. Nothing is unimportant. It is by paying attention to the totality of symptoms, physical, emotional and mental, that the Homeopath can discover the best medicine for the patient.

Another important difference between Homeopathy and modern medicine has to do with the way medicines act. Modern drugs are said to have "therapeutic effects" and "side effects". The "therapeutic effects" are desirable and result from and act on one or more organs to control, modify or suppress symptoms. The "side effects" of drugs result from their undesirable actions on body tissues. These unwanted effects are just as much a part of a drug's action as the "therapeutic effect". Homeopathic medicines differ in that they do not act on particular organs or tissues. Homeopathic medicines act on the entire organism to stimulate healing. There are no "side effects" with Homeopathic medicine.

What are Homeopathic remedies ?

Remedies are made from variety of diluted substances such as plants, minerals, animal products, insects, X-rays, colours, diseases, moon and sun light, vaccinations, and many more. Remedies are repeatedly diluted and succussed (vigorously shaken). The more diluted and succussed the more powerful they become (due to high frequency). This is opposite to allopathic drugs and is the hardest thing to comprehend by many people. Most of us believe that the stronger the medicine the more is in it. Think about the difference between Tylenol One and Three. With Homeopathy it is the other way around.

Homeopathic remedies come in many different potencies. The lower potencies contain the original substance while the higher potencies contain only energetic imprint of the substance. Although the substance is no longer there the blueprint of that substance remains. I think of this as a hologram. Take one piece of a holographic picture and start cutting it into smaller and smaller pieces. No matter how small the piece will be it still contains the entire picture of the original blueprint. Homeopathic remedies are just that, holographic minute pieces. Since some of our remedies are diluted far beyond Avogadro's number (6.23 x 10-23), and the substance is no longer detected, the original information still remains in the water.

It is fascinating to see today's science starting to support Homeopathy. In the book "Hidden Messages from Water" by Masaru Emoto one can read that water has the amazing ability to copy and memorize information. This phenomenon of memorizing information can be done by putting information into water, talking to water, keeping water on a piece of paper with a message on it, singing to water and even thinking about water. Masaru would take a sample of water from many different places, glaciers, lakes, springs and dirty rivers in big cities and take a picture of a frozen drop under a microscope. Water that was taken from clean environment would form a beautiful crystal. Water from dirty rivers and polluted lakes would form no crystal. Then he would take that dirty water and expose it to some positive energy, either classical music, Buddhist chants, loving affirmation on a piece of paper, etc and after some time he would take another photo of that same water. This time the water would create a beautiful crystal. It seems that our intentions and beliefs have a huge effect on water. Let us not forget here that not only are homeopathic remedies made out of water but we too are made out of 70% water. What we believe and think daily has a huge impact on our health.

How does Homeopathy work?

The concept of resonance helps us understand how homeopathy works. Resonance is the interaction between two objects vibrating at about the same speed. Disease conditions are characterized by their particular frequency. A homeopathic remedy for a given disease therefore has a similar frequency as the disease; it resonates with the disease and thus neutralizes it.

To help make this clearer, let's use an example. Take a red onion which genus and species name is Allium Cepa. What happens when you start chopping it? It usually makes your eyes sting and water and your nose run and burn. Now what happens when you get sick with a common cold? The symptoms are quite similar: runny nose, watery eyes and congestion. Through principles of resonance the disease condition of a cold if remedied with an onion at the appropriate concentrations will cancel each other out. Put another way, it's somewhat like a soprano hitting just the right note and shattering a crystal glass from across the room.

Biology of Belief

A groundbreaking work in the field of New Biology. Author Dr. Bruce Lipton is a former medical school professor (University of Wisconsin) and research scientist (Stanford University School of Medicine).

His experiments, examining in great detail the molecular mechanisms by which cells process information, have revealed that genes do not in fact control our behavior, instead, genes are turned on and off by influences outside the cell. These influences include our perceptions and beliefs. He shows that our beliefs, true or false, positive or negative, affect genetic activity and actually alter our genetic code. Dr. Lipton's profoundly hopeful work, being hailed as one of the major breakthroughs in the New Sciences, shows how we can retrain our consciousness to create healthy beliefs, and by doing so create a profoundly positive effect on our bodies and our lives.

Organon of Medicine

The sixth edition of the "Organon" as left by Hahnemann ready for publication, was found to be an interleaved copy of the fifth, the last German Edition, published in 1833. In his eighty-sixth year, while in active practice in Paris, he completed the thorough revision of it by carefully going over paragraph by paragraph, making changes, erasures, annotations and additions.

The book in this sixth edition is of the greatest interest and importance, completing as it does the marvelous array of Hahnemann's philosophic insight into the practice of medicine. Hahnemann's "Organon" is the high water mark of medical philosophy, the practical interpretation of which produces a veritable mountains of light and will guide the physician by means of the Law of Cure to a new world of therapeutics.

Power vs Force

This is the first book in Dr. David R. Hawkins' trilogy of consciousness. In Power vs Force, Dr. Hawkins describes how he used kinesiology (aka "muscle testing") to investigate consciousness. He determined that the human experience can be placed on a scale that he labeled from 1 to 1000. At the low end of the scale are Guilt (30), Fear (100) and Anger (150). Humans experiencing this level of consciousness feel victimized by the effect of the forces of the universe. Higher on the scale are Courage (200), Willingness (310), Reason (400) and Love (500). Humans experiencing life at this level feel that they are the source of their lives. At the highest end of the scale of human experience (600-1000) are the qualities that transcend duality. This book calibrates at a level of 850.
