The Three Major Ideas of Homeopathy

Vibration, resonance, and susceptibility are the three major ideas that explain homeopathy. Without a clear understanding of these principles and how they relate to each other, it is very difficult to ever explain homeopathy effectively. As Homeopaths, we are always explaining the concepts of homeopathy, but I find that it is one of the more difficult tasks of any student. Even practicing Homeopaths find homeopathy difficult to explain. Here are the key ideas to keep in mind.

Vibration is present in all forms. At the quantum physics level of understanding, it is all about vibration and the non-physical glue that holds matter together. This weak force is a force that keeps all atomic structures in perfect relation to all of the particles making up their existence. This is something akin to spiritual glue from a layman’s perspective. This spiritual glue has a vibrational quality when matter is formed. It is what holds the particles, atoms, molecules, and organisms together so...

How to Approach Your Homeopathic Education

I get many questions about the study of Homeopathy and what is the best approach. I think it could be an individual preference but after training homeopaths since 2001, I have found that there are a few things about homeopathic education that really work. I would like to share them with you.

I have found that if a person wants to be a professional homeopath, seeing clients on a daily basis, they must really love people and being around them. This may sound a bit absurd at first. After all, it isn't the job of the homeopath to be around people and help them. Yes, but you might be surprised at how many students I have talked with that have spent 3 years at some other homeopathic school and have never taken a case or spent time with clients. When they were finally introduced to a new client case they were surprised at their own reaction. I have heard everything from fear in front of the client because they did not have confidence in being a homeopath ( they have never done it before)...

Licensing and Certification in the USA

The most common question I receive is about getting certified in homeopathy and being able to practice legally. Certification and licensing are completely different in Homeopathy. Certification is to certify. It amounts to attesting to something. Certification can come from any school or certifying organization as to certifying the completion of a course or educational requirements.
 
Along with certification, there is usually a title or credential that the applicant will have earned. There are many titles in circulation today that schools and organizations have created to attest to their applicant's successful completion of the requirements. These certified credentials are not recognized by any State or Federal Regulating Body and only serve to bring legitimacy to the Homeopath.
 
The title most recognized in the world is RSHom. It comes from the Registered Society of Homeopaths in the UK. This title is the oldest and most respected title and is used by more Classical...

The Importance of a Mentor

Having a mentor is one of the best ways to accelerate your homeopathic learning. It is an integral part of our program at the Resonance School of Homeopathy. It is the best way to get the personal guidance necessary to avoid the bigger mistakes and errors made by the novice homeopath.
 
We all have to start somewhere. There has to be that first case we receive as a homeopath. Not having participated in this role before can be quite unnerving for the new homeopathic student or homeopath. If the program for learning has not included case receiving as a major part of the learning process, then the student will usually be lost in the process and this lack of confidence will be known by all.
 
Having confidence and knowing how to communicate with the client is key to a successful case. It is an art to be able to sit with someone and know how to get them to open up and reveal what is asking to be healed. Once this process is complete, then the task of case analysis and...

Dengue Fever

Uncategorized

For any of you who live in the tropics or have travelled there you may have encountered Dengue Fever. Also known as "Break-bone Fever", if you've had it you will probably always remember it. It is one of the more common tropical diseases and can be effectively treated with homeopathy. It can reach epidemic proportions and has a similar distribution as Malaria. It also is spread by infection from the bite of a mosquito.

     Dengue is a Spanish word meaning prudery. This name is applicable to this disease because of the fact that in Dengue Fever there is stiffness of the neck and shoulders, portraying the look of one with a reserved state and excess strictness of manners. The physical restriction of movement creates a posture that one could assume was of a prude.  It also produces high fever, severe pains in the bones and joints accompanied with swelling and in some cases hemorrhages with bleeding under the skin, from the gums, nosebleed or internal bleeding....

No Remedy? Now What?

Uncategorized

There are so many remedies in our Materia Medica it is really impossible to have every remedy you need, in the potency you need, available for instant administration?  What do you do when you know the remedy you want to give but don't have it?

         I have found that dealing with a reputable pharmacy that stocks many remedies in a variety of potencies is an absolute must being a professional homeopath. I use Hahnemann Labs for most purchases of remedies and can have them delivered in as little as 2 days by standard mail. But in any situation where I need the remedy in a shorter amount of time, I'm stuck.

         As you all well know, two days can be an eternity when it comes to changing health conditions. There are other ways to "make" the remedy that fall a little bit out of the norm for "standard remedy preparation". But if these methods work then the possibility for help are worth...

The Tong Ren Method

Inspirational Healing and the Tong Ren method.

By David Holt DO, HMD

In the Fall of 2009 I encountered a method of healing which appeared to be both peculiar and fascinating:  Tong Ren.  In the previous four years or so I had been emphasizing the practice of integrative medicine in the care of folks with a diagnosis of cancer.  This was a tremendous opportunity to explore the limitations of both orthodox and alternative healing methods and there were many cases where the best we could do was provide relief and comfort until their passing.

The Tong Ren method was devised by Tom Tam, an acupuncturist in Boston Massachusetts over a decade ago.  He is well known for getting very good results in a wide variety of challenging cases and a large portion of his clientele are diagnosed with cancer.

The technique is disarmingly simple and based on a system which sees that meridian and other blockages in particular patterns are responsible for a given illness.  Rather...

Radiation Update

Uncategorized

The disaster at Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan is old news now. After over two and a half years the situation is still about the same and growing more precarious everyday. All of the power generating nuclear reactors are damaged. There are reports that three of them are in uncontrolled meltdown. The location of the radioactive material may not be clearly known because the radiation levels are so extreme there is no way to get close enough to the melting blob. This material has most likely melted through the containment vessel made of very thick concrete.

This disaster is far worse than the Chernobyl nuclear power disaster. When the hydrogen explosion blew the top off of the reactors there was an incredible fireball sent high into the sky. With it was a release of highly radioactive particles that have drifted into our atmosphere. 8 days after the explosion the radioactive fallout made it to the North American continent where it has been distributed....

The Universe is Screaming at You

Uncategorized

Do you ever wonder why things work out the way they do? Why we suffer the myriad of ways in life aside from our health. Or why things seem to work out despite our fears? I know that the universe is not just a random chaotic accident. I do not believe in accidents. Everything has its purpose and the universe is always reflecting to us exactly what we need.

In homeopathy we focus mainly on health and the relationship to the body. But what if one considers the entire realm of a persons experience an extension of his/her body. Then things outside of our sphere and control seem to have a different effect.

It is never about the "outer world" of our life experience. Our outer world can not exist without our inner worlds interpretations. Often though we feel victimized by life circumstances and events seem out of our control. Often they are out of our control but they may also have significant meaning to us. If we look at a person's life story as an extension...

Acute Skin Remedies

Uncategorized

The skin being the largest and least vital organ of our bodies has probably the very most symptoms for people in general. There are hundreds of diagnosed skin conditions and you would have to be a dermatologist to even begin to recognise their differences. But the most common skin conditions are urticaria and eczema. These effect more people than any other conditions and are usually acute and self resolving.

Eczema is sometimes referred to as dermatitis. The word derives from Greek meaning to boil over and is quite descriptive of the condition. Principle symptoms are redness, swelling, sensations of heat and itching.  The causes of eczema may be internal, external or a combination of the both. As with urticaria the causes are usually an allergic response that the body is finding a way to resolve. Food allergies, detergents, plant or mineral contact can all play a part in the development of allergic responses. Most common are foods including milk products, eggs, nuts, wheat...
