Homeopathy: Introduction

Tuesday, August 24, 2010
More and more people, from all walks of life, are turning to homeopathy to treat big and small problems. However, there are still some confusion relating to homeopathy and how it works. One way to dissipate this confusion is to inform yourself. One means of information is to take a course, and the College offers everything from the complete homeopathy program to the individual course. Go check it out. Confusion dissipated guaranteed! 

Being very adaptable, homeopathy is used by all sorts of people: everyone from mom to physician. Minor problems are easily resolved at  home. It is however necessary to consult when problems persist or worsen. It is wise to ask for tests that will reveal the cause of the disease in these circumstances. Using good judgement is always appropriate, even for those wishing to use homeopathy as treatment modality.

Homeopathy is a form of global medicine. To treat a disease, it takes into account the  specific psychological and physical aspects of the individual. An example: in classical medicine,  a group of people having the flu will be given the same treatment, regarless of the individual's symptoms, and/or how the person reacts to the treatment. With homeopathy, however, each person in the same group of flu-ridden people would receive a different treatment, one adapted to the symptoms of the individual.

Homeopathic remedies help the person's immune system to react.  Obviously, anything impeding the body (lack of exercise, negative emotions, stress, poor eating habits) will  hinder the homeopathic remedies' action and must be rectified.

Homeopathy, when competently applied, can act very rapidly. It is not adapted to the partisans of instant remedies, though. It is best suited to the person that can attentively auto-observe and that has the will to follow through with a treatment plan. The results will be an increased feeling of well-being, energy and better resistance to illness.

The increasing popularity of homeopathy is partially due to reactivism to classical medicine. Most will agree that allopathic medicine has in the past improved health of the population, and that it still has its place in the present. But, more and more realize that traditional medicine cannot heal all and that some of the treatments it proposes come with non-negligeable side effects. The ever-rising cost of this highly industrialized and commercial medicine makes it less accessible to everyone. Modalities such as homeopathy come fill in the gap between what is accessible and what is healthy. Global medical systems, like homeopathy, don't limit  themselves to symptomology of the illness; they focus on prevention and on taking responsibility for our own state of  health and treatment. 

"In each patient there resides a physician. And the best we can do as practitioners, is to connect the individual with the physician within." - A. Schweitzer
