Homeopathic remedies work based on the use of minute doses of natural substances to repel
imbalances out of the body and stimulate the body's own immune system thus enabling the
body to heal. Homeopathy offers unique differences from allopathic medicine and
alternative health therapies. These differences are based on Homeopathic principles.
Law of Similars - Provings Law
of the Minimum Dose & Potentization Law of Individualization
- Holistic Healing In 1790, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, took
several doses of Cinchona, which was used to treat Malaria.
Symptoms of trembling and cold limbs, heart palpitations,
etc. were noted. The symptoms returned with each subsequent
dose. Hahnemann recorded that Cinchona Bark was effective
against Malaria, because it can produce similar symptoms
in healthy people. This led to testing additional drugs,
not previously known to be effective, to find their
potential use as remedies. Between 1811 and 1821, Hahnmann
carried out provings of many Homeopathic medicines and
published the results. Today new substances go through
this process of Proving and added to Homeopathic remedies
available. Hippocrates wrote, "By similar things a disease
is produced and through the application of the like
it is cured". People are most often familiar with medicines
that suppress symptoms; that actually harm cells in
the body; and have other definite negative chemical
or physical reaction on the body.
Homeopathic remedies seeks to repel the imbalance from the body and allow the body to heal and
rebalance. Homeopathic remedies stimulates the body's natural curative powers.
>The vast majority of remedies come from usually plants with other remedies from minerals.
Homeopathic remedies that use organs, glands, or tissue are called Sarcodes
(organtherapy). Homeopathic remedies for allergies can be from almost any allergenic
substance and are called Allergens. Homeopathic remedies from inorganic minerals found
inside the cells of our bodies are called Cell Salts. Homeopathic remedies from rock and
minerals form a branch of homeopathy called Lithotherapy. Nosodes are from disease
substances that are rendered safe from homeopathic preparation of dilution. Remedies can
be from poisons such as arsenic. Homeopathic remedies no longer contain whole molecules of
the substances and are therefore non-poisonous. The healing properties come from
succussion and potenization.
Homeopathic remedies have OTC status, that
is over-the-counter status. They are recognized as medicines
that can be safely sold off the counter in stores (and
internet stores like ours!) Most remedies are available
without a prescription. Bottles have labels listing
basic indications.Homeopathic remedies can be purchased
as liquids or dissolved in water. Most homeopathic remeides
are in small tablets that dissolve in your mouth. Through
the saliva, they instantly enter your system, bypassing
the need for further digestion. Great for those with
sensitive digestive systems. Children also love homeopathic
remedies, with no large capsules to swallow or bad tasting
liquids. Homeopathic remedies
ususally have no taste, or if there is a taste, it is
mild and sweet.
