What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a healing modality that uses infinitesimal doses of natural substances that are FDA approved, to stimulate a person's immune system and body's natural defenses. Homeopathic remedies are named for the plant ,minera lor animal ingredients they are made from and are organic. Homeopathy not only offers relief from temporary disorders but, can provide long term healing of a person due to its individual and holistic approach. This can often leads to a complete recovery, as well as, providing an improved understanding of the patients's situation. This type of healing makes it possible to avoid recurrence or relapes in the future because homeopathy stimulates the body's natural defense system by reestablishing normal immune system and cell functioning. Homeopathic remedies do not have side effects abnd are safe for adults, children, pregnant women, and the elderly. Homeopathic remedies can be used along with conventional medicines. The goal of homeopathy is to restore health so medicines are no longer needed Homeopathic or otherwise.
As of late the word Homeopathy has been used as a general term for a variety of different complimentary or natural therapies. Homeopathic remedies are derived from natural substances, but are not herbal, Chinese, or other types of natural medicines. It is its own, unique therapeutic system.
Approximately ten years ago I was suffering from seasonal hay fever. My doctor prescribed drugs to control my symptoms, but I was getting worse every year and experiencing side effects. The hay fever was wearing my body down and I was always fatiqued and susceptible to many repertory illnesses.
One day I decided to try something else. I went to the health food store and bought what I thought was a package of herbs indicated for hay fever. The package said Homeopathic remedy for seasonal allergies. When I opened the box I expected to see capsules filled with herbs but instead there were a number of little white pellets. The directions said to dissolve the pellet under my tongue, I thought this was strange, but I followed the directions. Nothing happened, and I thought "herbs don't work". I was expecting my symptoms to be suppressed as with conventional drugs. But I was desperate and continued to take the homeopathic remedy. It took two days, but I woke up one morning, started my day, and soon realized I have no more allergy symptoms. My hay fever was gone! I was amazed at the healing. My hay fever has not returned. The healing was swift, gentle, and permanent. Since then I have been humbled to treat friends, family, myself, and even my cat for both acute and chronic conditions with homeopathic remedies.
I have finished my training and am opening a Homeopathic practice. It has been my honor to assist my clients in their healing. My clients face their diseases with dignity and courage, and I am honored and humbled to be of service to them in their journey back to health and vitality. I will use the funding provided by purchasing software that assists with the selection of the homopathic remedy, and to have a professional website created.
I practice according to Dr. Samuel Hahnemann's Organon of Medicine, 6th edition. Dr Samuel Hahnemann founded Homeopathy in 1792 on the following principles;
1. Law of simulars.
2. The potenized dose.
3. The minimal dose.
4. One remedy at a time.
I am not a physician and do not diagnose or treat specific diseases. I work from a holistic prespective, in cooperation with each client's primary care practitioner to promote health and relieve discomfort of presenting symptoms.
I am not licensed or certified by the State of Michigan. Michigan does not license or certify Homeopathic Practitioners. Although I am not yet certified by the Council for Homeiopathic Certification, I do adhere to the professional ethics required by the Council for Homeopathic Certification.
Thank you, for your time. I wish you and your family health and vitality.
Hear is another definition of Homeopathy presented by the National Center of Homeopathy. Here is a link to their site. http://homeopathycenter.org.
"Homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health. It is extremely safe to use, even with very samll children and pets, has none of the side effects of many traditional medications, is very affordable, is made from natural substances, and is FDA regulated. It is used to treat acute illnesses, like colds, ear infections, migraines, and sore throats, as well as chronic conditions, like asthma, depression, autism, and arthritis.
Homeopathic medicines - known as "remedies" - are made from natural sources (e.g., plants, minerals), and are environmentally friendly and cruelty free. Homeopathic remedies when used as directed, are completely safe for everyone - including pregnant and nursing women, infants, children, and adults. They are given in such small doses that they don't cause side effects. Homeopathic remedies can be used along with conventiional drugs prescribed by your physician.
Homeopathy is not a general or "umbrella" term that describes a variety of different natural therapies. Although homeopathic remedies are derived from natural substances, homeopathy should not be confused with herbal medicine, Chinese medicine, or other types of natural medicines. It is its own, unique thrapeutic system.
Homeopathy differs from convential medicine.
Homeopathy is based on a rule of nature called the Law of Similars. This law states that "like cures like," or that a medicine can cure a sick person if it can cause a similar sickness in a healthy person. For instance, if you peel an onion, your eyes burn, itch and water. You might also have a runny nose and begin to sneeze. If you had similar symptoms during a cold or allergy attack, such as a runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing, a homeopathic micro-dose of the remedy Allium cepa (red onion) would help your body heal itself.
The homeopath regards symptoms as the body's attempt to restore itself to balance. That is why a homeopath will choose a remedy that supports the symptoms - rather than opposing them or suppressing them as in conventional medicine. In conventional medicine, a cold or hayfever sufferer is given an antihistamine to dry up the runny nose and watery eyes artificially. But this medication often comes with unpleasant side effects like sleepiness and constipation. With the correct homeopathic remedy, however, there are no side effects and a person is restored to health naturally.
Homeopathy also recognizes that each person exhibits his or her disease in a unique and slightly different way. That is why two people with the same disease will not necessarily receive the same homeopathic remedy. A cold sufferer with a stopped up nose and dry eyes would receive a different remedy than one with a runny nose and watering eyes. Unlike the "one size fits all" approach to prescribing often used in conventional medicine, a homeopath chooses a remedy that matches the unique symptom profile of the individual. Conventional medicine seeks to control illness through the regular use of medications; if the medicine is withdrawn, the person's symptoms return. For example, the daily use of drugs for asthma (or any chronic disease for that matter) alleviates the symptoms but does not cure the underlying problem. In Homeopathy the ideal is that a person needs just enough of the homeopathic remedy to stimulate their healing response. In other words, homeopathy seeks to heal a person so that they do not need any medications - homeopathic or otherwise." - National Center for Homeopathy
