What Is Homeopathy?

Homeopathic remedies are made from minute extractions of materials that exist in the natural world. The medicine is administered on small pills once the qualities of these substances have been matched to the symptoms evident in the patient. The process of making the medicating potency takes place in a homeopathic pharmacy, although it is possible to make home remedies to a low potency using the same principle of dilution.

Why use homeopathy?

The particles used to transmit the healing power of the medicine are so tiny that they can’t even be found under a powerful microscope. Therefore the remedies are totally safe, non-toxic, non-addictive and once healing is set in motion then they can be discontinued. The worst any remedy can do is nothing. And this usually means that the remedy chosen wasn’t a close enough match and the body didn’t recognise it. A well-chosen remedy is extremely potent in its action.

When do you use it?

The notion of homeopathy has been with us for well over 200 years. It has often been used as a first resort in response to patient’s symptoms, even when the doctor is on the way. It is so safe that it can be used for babies, small children and the elderly. Homeopathic remedies can be used in first aid situations, for acute sudden illnesses and for more chronic long lasting states of poor health.

How does homeopathy work?

One explanation is that the bundle of particles that at a quantum level becomes a plant or a tree, a flower or a mineral has a resonance at a cellular level with a particular state of dis-ease in a human being. When the minutest particle from that natural source is captured as an imprint on a water molecule, then the healing ability of that energetic imprint can transmit the curative message to the human cell.

Symptoms of ill health are paid attention to instead of being suppressed and the return to health begins. Another way of looking at it is that the vibration of that unique plant or mineral acts as a tonic to stimulate the innate healing ability of the human organism. Our bodies are self-cleansing, self-organising and self-healing mechanisms. Sometimes we malfunction and a homeopathic prescription can kick start that mechanism. After all you wouldn’t cut the wire to the dash board of a car if the red light kept coming on each time you started it would you?

Who can use homeopathy?

It is so safe that it can be used at home by anyone. It is so safe that it can be used for babies, small children and the elderly. It is controversial for a homeopath to say that they can treat a specific condition.

However the truth of the matter is that a homeopath works with the person to establish what needs to happen to effect a cure, prescribes the remedy then gets out of the way while the patient does the healing. A qualified practising homeopath is therefore working with many types of illness as these are seen as flags for what is at the root of the problem.
