Homeopathy and the FDA

Uncategorized

It is happening again that the FDA is wanting to change regulations and make it more difficult to get homeopathic remedies all in the name of protecting you. The current debate is an extension of the public hearings from 2015. This had to do with the safety and efficacy of homeopathic remedies. I am sure all of you loyal readers contacted the FDA and responded with astounding support of its safety and usefulness.

Since December of 2017 the FDA is now proposing a different wording of their guidance that puts the burden of proof of a remedies safety and efficacy on the manufacturer. Essentially this makes homeopathic remedies in the same class as allopathic drugs.

Their new proposed guidance is less clear than the existing regulatory framework, Compliance Policy 400.400 (adopted in 1988). Therefore this has led to a lot of confusion as to what extent the FDA wants to control homeopathy. Because of this it looks as though if the FDA wanted to include any homeopathic remedy, they could....

Diabetes

Uncategorized

Diabetes is an increasingly more frequent disease as a result of our modern diet and hereditary influences. It is one of the most insidious diseases affecting man. It can be a quiet killer if not properely diagnosed and treated. Allopathic treatment is fairly easy and with the help of dietary changes can help modify the disease. But to remove the disease and it's symptoms good homeopathy must be applied to help inspire deeper healing along with lifestyle changes, including diet.

      There are two main types of diabetes; diabetes insipidus, which is characterised by polyuria (increased secretion of urine without containing any sugar or glucose) and diabetes mellitus, which is characterised by polyuria with an increase in sugar in the urine, abnormal thirst, and an increased or depressed appetite with progressive debility.  If left untreated diabetes effects all metabolic functions and creates a horrible picture of disease.

The Evolution of the Student Practitioner Part 1

Uncategorized

Students of homeopathy go through many stages of their learning. Each school being different there is a different challenge at each stage. At Resonance School of Homeopathy (RSH) we are using live cases in a teaching/clinical setting to provide the opportunity to learn to be a homeopath. Our school is different,  so these observations may not apply to all students of homeopathy. The challenges are obviously different for each student of each school. That is following the same nature of homeopathy, every case and every homeopath is different also. For students of Resonance School of Homeopathy though there are definite stages to their learning and challenges. Here I will share the first of the three stages to their evolution. In the next two newsletters I will share the remaining stages of the RSH student/practitioner of homeopathy.

Unless a student coming to RSH has been to another school of homeopathy prior to  attending the live clinical teaching seminars, the first...

The Evolution of the Student Practitioner Part 3

Uncategorized

In the last two newsletters we discussed the first two phases of the evolution of the student/practitioner. In this last part we will explain the third and final phase of this journey to becoming a homeopath. Once that decision has been made to embrace the journey and commit to becoming a homeopath the student/practitioner begins the evolution to practitioner. As a student/practitioner the challenges are great and the biggest challenge is yourself.

The journey to being a homeopath is fraught with highs and low, successes and failures. Because this journey is not a straight line it is easy to get bogged down in self reproach and defeat. I see this end in much frustration for students. The desire to know it all right now is great. This can lead to many disappointments. I encourage my students to be loving, kind and forgiving to themselves. Never will everything there is to know be learned. It is an ongoing process. So this third phase somewhat lasts forever. It is good to get...

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....

Duality

Uncategorized

Duality is a concept that is inherent in our universe. Dualism (from the Latin word duo meaning "two") denotes the state of two parts. The term dualism was originally coined to denote co-eternal binary opposition, a meaning that is preserved in metaphysical and philosophical duality discourse but has been more generalized in other usages to indicate a system which contains two essential parts.

We see this throughout our world; good/bad, light/dark, boy/girl, happy/sad, ying/yang, etc. The list is nearly endless. So how does this apply to Homeopathy and receiving a case? It is a concept that we inherently use in all of our daily lives but rarely do we see it for what it simply is.

When we receive a case we naturally interpret what we hear through our own filters. This is our human nature. Even the concept of duality is so ingrained in our consciousness that we often take it for granted that the polar opposites of what we are considering exist. This is where if we consider what a...

Giving Multiple Remedies

Uncategorized

The goal of every classical or Hahnemannian homeopath is to give the simillimum remedy. This is the most perfect single remedy that covers the case and will inspire the healing response. In a perfect world this would always be the case and a single remedy would always work. In Hahnemann's time there was a much more simple expression of dis-ease. Now we have so many influences and suppression's that disease in our modern world is far more complex.

My experience is that about half of all cases do very well with a single remedy. Others that have many drug influences and years of suppression often need another remedy to help the healing process.Finding the simillimum can be difficult in these cases because a single remedy just does not cover the entire energy of the case. Many times a simillimum is given and the person does moderately well but there are some symptoms that are just not yielding. It is a fine line to determine if the vital force has not responded yet or another remedy is...

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...
