I never cease to be amazed by the scope of homeopathy. I have been in full time practice for 20 years and I’m still learning more, still understanding anew, still applying it in different ways.
Although homeopathy has been in its present form for 200 odd years, having been founded by a very insightful and able German physician, it is forever growing.
Homeopathic remedies can be made out of anything. The common ones are made from minerals, plants, mammalian milk and some insects. However, when you realise just how many plants there are in the world, it suddenly opens up a pandoras box. And then there are all the microbes, the bacteria, the virus’.
So our materia medica , currently at an expanding 5,000 odd, will come to include the 100,000s of plants. Plus all the microbes, of which we currently know so little. And we still haven’t made remedies from all the diversity of animals on our amazing planet.
Clearly, with so many remedies, there has to be a structure to be able to hone in to the right one for the troubled patient. Currently many different methods are being developed by contemporary homeopaths. I’m sure that some methods will drop by the way side in time as others become universally more accurate.
The diversity of homeopathy brings its healing powers to everyone. There are the limited, but oh-so-helpful common remedies used in home prescribing for every day conditions. There are those that can be used on plants to strengthen them against disease, to rid them of parasites. And then there are the chronic conditions that professional homeopaths help and support every day.
Chronic conditions that medicine has no answer for and can only manage.
Animals respond in just the same way to the same remedies that people do. It just takes a different understanding of how to read them. Just as it does to read a baby, a toddler or those who are non-verbal.
Homeopathy goes so much deeper than replacing medical or veterinary drugs. It works by supporting a damaged immune system. Damage that can occur from so many different sources, but which had a deep enough impact on us to derail our natural ability to heal.
So often, this can come from fear. For example, a sudden fright, such as experiencing, or even witnessing, a motor accident or a natural disaster that damaged the environment or you or yours.
Fear can also come from being persuaded against your better judgement. This often leads to a feeling of hopelessness or disempowerment. This is a common marketing tactic very skilfully used by mega corporations.
Unwittingly, parents can instil fear into their children, simply by sharing their own concerns and perceptions, who learned this from their parents. Perceptions are inherently limited. And these fall away, along with the health problem, under the right homeopathic treatment.
The scope of homeopathy is as wide and diverse as those needing its healing potential. Rare, chronic, common, painful, complicated issues can all be supported, healed and/or reversed by this amazing health care system.
It works by strengthening, by restoring the immune system back to its natural and innate ability to keep you healthy and free from health issues. It does this by removing the cause. This means the effect can be permanent.
People often resort to homeopathy as a ‘last resort’, which is a pity at it wastes valuable time, not to mention cash.
Life is meant to be enjoyed. Let those worries drop away along with your ailments. It’s freeing. It’s empowering. It’s a life line.
