Homeopathy is a holistic alternative health practice; founded over 200 years ago by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician. Based on three prime principles, Homeopathy was sought by Hahnemann as an alternative to modern medicine at that time. He was dissatisfied with the current methods of practice (which included bloodletting), and often thought those practices did more harm than good. As for today, individuals are treated for their various symptoms, separated, requiring at times multiple doctors and/or medications.
Homeopathy continues to work to bridge this split, by focusing on the individual as a whole, holistic. Homeopathy looks at individuals on all levels: physical, mental and emotional.
This deeper method of care aims at improving an individual's quality of life because it focuses on one's constitutional condition or persistent chronic health problems and recurring ailments or symptoms that don't fully heal overtime. It focuses to restore one's health in a permanent way by promoting the body's natural ability to heal itself. Holistically, it aims to further one's quality of life and social well-being by bringing the whole body into balance, not by the mere absence of symptoms, disease or diagnosis.
There are various ways of practicing homeopathy from Acute conditions (injuries, colds), to Therapeutic care (organ support, palliation), to this deeper method of care.
Principles of Homeopathy
Using natural substances (plants, minerals, animal milks, and so on) which have been highly diluted to minimize toxicity, then succussed (vigorously shaken - energized) homeopathic remedies are made. The remedy is then applied to small sugar pilules as a simple way for us to receive the remedy - and it's delicious!
There are various methods of taking homeopathic remedies, the above (pilules) is the most common.
As this is an energetic form of medicine, anyone can take homeopathic remedies including pregnant women, babies, the elderly, even pets; and there are no side effects from homeopathic remedies.
In fact, Homeopathy was founded because of Hahnemann's skepticism in his own profession as a physician - and so chose to explore alternative methods. Since that time, over 200 years ago, Homeopathy remains an easy target for scrutiny - as present day scientific approaches remain unable to define it - in their terms.
What can be said, is that for over 200 years Homeopathy remains.
People around the world, in various countries, continue to use Homeopathy. As it is no stranger to scrutiny, it is also no stranger to praise.
Any homeopath will have their story in which they were introduced to homeopathy, and how it has affected them so much, that they have chosen to continue to carry Homeopathy into the future as their life's work.
