Inspire Your Body to Heal with its Own Innate WISDOM
We hear so much about alternative medicine today, in the news, through friends, and in health magazines like this. But as a Classical Homeopath, I find there are many misconceptions about Homeopathy. The most common being that Homeopathy is an herb or something like a vaccination.
Homeopathic medicines are derived from the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms. Just about anything that can change the state of something living can also be used to help an organism heal. Sounds like a great contradiction but it is through the nature of these substances and the nature of dis-ease that the Homeopathic principle can be applied and used effectively to stimulate the body into a healing response. "Homeo" means "similar" and "pathy" means "suffering". It is the innate wisdom of the body's "vital force" to heal itself. Another way to understand this response is by imagining two tuning forks of the same key. If one is struck the other will soon begin to vibrate and hum without direct contact. They are in resonance. Just like the body's dis-ease energy and the energy of the homeopathic remedy, the remedy energy will inspire the healing response because of resonance.
So what makes a trip to the Classical Homeopath different from the Allopathic Doctor? The Homeopath listens. I want to know as much as I can about the person to be able to see the life story, recurring patterns and blocks in the persons life, as well as what the aches and pains feel like. There is no separation between the physical body, mind, emotions, and spirit. So to treat most effectively with homeopathy we need to treat at the highest level possible. We are spiritual beings with a body. Not a body that gets a spirit. So to treat the "vital force", the spiritual energy that animates the body, is the highest form of healing. After all it is responsible for the expression of all life, health, dis-ease and healing. It is all a result of our "vital-force". Without this "vital-force" we are dead; there is no life. Thus, homeopathy doesn't just inspire healing a dis-ease, it inspires healing a life.
Homeopathy gets confused as a New Age medicine when it actually has 240 years of effective use and proven results. It is completely safe, there are no drug interactions and it is very affordable. Most common homeopathic medicines are under $10 and last for months of use. Healing is a process and not an event. It is best to establish a relationship with a classical Homeopath for continued treatment. To get the very most homeopathy has to offer, it becomes a commitment to one's own healing process, where the patient is taking increasingly more responsibility for his or her own health care. Education is equally as important as the actual homeopathic remedy prescriptions in my practice, and communication is absolutely essential.
