Diet and Exercise

Uncategorized

It is not often I recommend more than a single homeopathic remedy to a client. Those clients who are in relatively good health sometimes ask what more they can do to take care of themselves. Vitamins and supplements can be helpful but require a certain expertise in using them correctly. I find that the need for vitamins diminishes when good diet  and exercise are adopted. Of all of the recommendations though, these two are the most difficult for people to follow because it involves a lifestyle change, not just the taking of another pill.

Hahnemann recognized that our lifestyle is integral to our general health. He also recommended that we remove all foods that could have a medicinal effect. He referred to this in Aphorism 260. In Aphorism 261 he addressed the issue directly, "The most appropriate regimen during the employment of medicine in chronic diseases consists in the removal of such obstacles to recovery, and in supplying where necessary the reverse: innocent moral and...

Susceptibility

Uncategorized

Susceptibility is the whole reason why homeopathy works. With out susceptibility there would be no ability of the vital force to recognize the homeopathic remedy energy. Let's explore the roots of susceptibility.

When studying the subject of our existence there comes a time when the real question boils down to why. Why are we here? Why do we have this life to live? Why do our lives turn out the way they are? Why do we suffer? The answer to these questions will lead us back to susceptibility and the spiritual nature of our being.

I have contemplated these questions much in my life and have formulated an opinion. I will share this opinion with you, but by no means is my opinion the definitive word on these subjects. If this essay inspires you to your own investigation, great. If it resonates with you, great. If you disagree, great. I have no agenda here other than to answer the question about susceptibility in the only way I know how. It all links back to spirituality.

Motion Sickness

Uncategorized

Motion sickness, which includes airsickness, carsickness, and seasickness, is an acute condition that causes a feeling of nausea and malaise. It is usually accompanied by vomiting, headache and vertigo. There are drugs to help prevent this condition but homeopathy offers one of the best solutions for prophylaxis as well as treatment.

     Motion sickness is cause by an over stimulation of the vestibular nerve in the inner ear which controls balance. The condition is usually brought about by motion that is accompanied by acceleration and deceleration. The body has a hard time keeping up with the continual changes brought on by the constant motion and movement.

      Motion sickness is common in children who are susceptible to the motions of riding in cars and boats. Once motion sickness sets in the first symptom is usually nausea. This can be accompanied by sweats or chills, dizziness, hyperventilation, headache, anxiety, inability to...

The Importance of Good Materia Medica

Uncategorized

The Materia Medica is any information compiled about a Substance that will lead to a better understanding of the properties of the Substance.  Materia Medica are the materials of our medicine. In Homeopathy it is usually a compilation of symptoms collected from provings or common knowledge about the Substance. Good Materia Medica can really open up understanding about the remedies we are using. It helps complete the picture of the remedy that will be most useful to help inspire a person to heal.

Sometimes information about a Substance comes from the most unlikely sources outside of Homeopathy. I have a very basic book about the elements written by a very passionate Professor who explains the most unlikely information about each element. His descriptions are brief and concise but carry a lot of information about the elements. This is Materia Medica. The same can come from the plant or animal kingdom. The energy of the Substance is released through the potentization process and...

Quick Accurate Prescribing

Uncategorized

There is no substitute for thoroughness in homeopathy. But it does not need to take days to prescribe the correct remedy. In fact,  I have found that the longer one mulls over the possibilities of understanding the case and remedies, the farther they get from the real energy of the case. When the case is understood well it forms the foundation for everything that follows. This is a process that does not need to take a long time.

The first step in quick prescribing is to get out of ones own way. Let go and allow. Ask for help from higher powers and be ready to see everything. When opening up this awareness and aligning oneself with a focused intent, many things will happen and be seen that otherwise would be unnoticed. Doing this simple exercise will do more to become the prejudiced observer that is necessary to "see the case".

The next step is to align our head with our heart. This allows us to balance what we think with what we feel. It is not enough to form ideas about a case...

Concerns About the Future of Homeopathy

Uncategorized

I just returned from the Joint American Homeopathic Conference in Atlanta. This is an annual conference presented by the National Center for Homeopathy. It was my first conference in a while and I was really surprised by what I experienced.

When I was studying homeopathy in the 1990's there were many conferences and speakers that exposed much new information about homeopathy. In some ways I look back on these times as the heyday of the current homeopathic renaissance. The speakers were dynamic and enthused. There was never a conference I attended that did not inspire me and left me feeling excited to be learning so much and a part of such a great movement.

I did not get to see all of the speakers at the conference but those I did attend were less than dynamic. Most were MD's and ND's. Some of the content presented was not purely homeopathic. A homeopathic remedy may have been mentioned but the focus of the cases or presentation was from a naturopathic or medical perspective. There...

Radiation

Uncategorized

It is with great sorrow and concern that I write this today. I am sure it is not new news about the disasters that have fallen upon Japan. Three monumental disasters have happened all at once. The forth largest earthquake ever recorded is bad enough. But the 10 meter high tidal wave was equally devastating. Then to have severe damage to 6 nuclear reactors as a result puts the devasation over the top. As I write this the situation around the nuclear power plants is still out of contol. All  disaster response actions are without precedence to prevent a meltdown. There is no play book for the situation at hand. All emergency plans have been scrapped and now there are about 100 people doing the best they can in a very dangerous situation with very high levels of radiation. The situation is not stable by any means.

Radiation is one of man's great nemisis. You can not see it, hear it, feel it, smell it or taste it. It is silent. But it is deadly in any great quantity or...

The Dangers of the Allopathic Approach

Uncategorized

Iatrogenic (by medical intervention) causation is one of the leading contributors of illness and the maintainance of disease in the world today. Between vaccination, antibiotics, drugs and surgical intervention more people are being made ill than from any other cause. I recently came across an article "Death by Medicine" by a group of doctors (Gary Null PhD, Carolyn Dean MD, Martin Felman MD, Debora Rasio MD, and Dorothy Smith PhD) that explained quite well the effects of medicine on the individual. Unfortunately the findings are from between 2000 and 2003 and are not current being nearly a decade old now. But they are very telling of how dangerous the allopathic approach is. Here are a few of the findings.

  • Most medical errors are not reported. All of the studies done are still skewed by the fact that most medical errors are not reported. Therefore, even with an astounding amount of data available, the numbers would be much higher...

The Most Common Mistakes Homeopaths Make

Uncategorized

When I am teaching Students, I emphasize demonstrating effective strategies for case taking.  Learning how to do Homeopathy correctly and avoiding common mistakes, will lead to your great success.  Here are a few common mistakes some Homeopaths make:

  • Forgetting to set your intention before beginning a case - This happens before the case even begins and in my opinion is one of the most detrimental mistakes there is. Everything that happens during the case must be witnessed and understood without prejudice. If your intention is not set to be a clear, unprejudiced observer, out of your own way and open to be an empathetic listener, you will likely be unsuccessful in hearing what is asking to be healed. Instead, you may be involved in your own story in your mind and miss vital details. The first thing to do as a Homeopath is setting your intention. Be clear and ready for the case to unfold before you.
  • Being inaccurate with rubric selections - The repertory is a very exact...
