What Is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a scientific system of health care that activates the body's powerful innate healing resources. A natural pharmaceutical science, homeopathy uses minute doses of pure extract from all realms of nature. Mixed in precise combinations, these ingredients become potent health formulas that help clear nerve interference and activate the body's restorative power.
Homeopathy recognizes that symptoms are not the disease but rather the result of the body's efforts to cope with an underlying problem. Symptoms are actually the body's way of restoring balance and wellness. Homeopathy targets underlying causes, not symptoms. This helps the body cure diseases naturally, gently, and promptly without the threat of side effects or negative drug interactions.
Suppressive vs. Expressive Treatment
When symptoms are suppressed by conventional drug therapy, a true cure becomes less likely. Certain strong drugs that overwhelm the body's inherent tendency to heal can seriously weaken the immune system and other defense processes. A weakened system is more susceptible to serious physical and mental illness. As symptoms are suppressed, they are driven deeper into the mental / emotional and physical levels. Because homeopathy is an expressive rather than a suppressive therapy, underlying causes are corrected and symptoms clear rather than being driven deeper into the body.
Homeopathy is designed to express health and life at its highest level.
The Law of Similars
The active principle of homeopathy is a verified law of pharmacology: The Law of Similars. This law states that a dilution of a certain substance can remove the symptoms which that substance, in larger amounts, is capable of evoking. For example, if one drinks too much coffee, the mind races and it is difficult to sleep; the nervous system is on edge; and trembling may occur. A homeopathy dose of coffee will gently and promptly reverse these symptoms. Because doses are so small and the preparations naturally pure, homeopathy has no side effects or known harmful reactions with other drugs. The fields of genetics, physics, chemistry, and immunology also incorporate the Law of Similars.
Classical vs. Contemporary Homeopathy
Modern practitioners of homeopathy generally fall into one of two schools: classical or contemporary.
Classical homeopathy is the original system founded 200 years ago and developed over the next 100 years. Procedures include compiling extensive detailed notes on each case, and then prescribing a single remedy. The contemporary approach includes a combination of remedies, applied kinesiology, and sublingual testing procedures.
In developing our revolutionary contemporary system, we have gleaned key aspects of the classical approach and combined them with modern techniques to achieve and effective, easy-to-use system. Classical principles are helpful, and sometimes essential, but the classical approach alone has its limitations. The primary problem is the time involved in compiling a detailed case history. It often takes well over an hour to acquire the necessary information to select the appropriate remedy. From that point, it could take three or four remedy tries—each lasting approximately one to two months—to find the correct remedy for just one aspect of a complex health profile!
The Modern Disease Picture
With the advent of the Industrial Revolution, environmental toxicities, vaccinations, and suppressive drug therapies. the basic evolution of disease processes became more complicated. The disease patterns of today are much more complex than they were 100-200 years ago when classical homeopathic principles were developed.
"...For the introduction of Homeopathy, which forced the old school doctor to stir around and learn something of a rational nature about his business, you may honestly feel grateful that homeopathy survived the attempts of the allopaths (orthodox physicians) to destroy it."
"Homeopathy cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment, and is beyond all doubt safer, more economical, and the most complete medical science."
