What Is The Actual Definition Of Homeopathy

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Homeopathy is a system of medical therapy that uses very small doses of medicines, or remedies. These remedies are prepared from substances found in nature. Nevertheless, homeopathy should not be confused with herbal medicine. These two systems of medicine are very different. Herbal medicine uses tinctures of botanical substances, whereas homeopaths use ultradilute “micro”doses made from not only plants, but minerals or any other substance found in nature.

The worldwide influenza epidemic of 1918 killed 22 million people worldwide and 500,000 in the U.S. The death rate was 30% or higher for those treated conventionally, while homeopaths cured an amazing 98% of their cases!

Remedies used by homeopathic physicians come from natural sources and are prepared in such a way that they are devoid of all chemical toxicity. In conventional medicine, drugs are generally given for their effects on the organism, while in homeopathy, the unique remedy is given to provoke a healing reaction of the organism. Since only the living organism can heal itself, the homeopathic remedy is merely an influence used to provoke a reaction to bring about recovery. The greater the degree of similarity between the symptoms that are provoked by the remedy on a healthy person and the symptoms displayed by the person who is sick, the greater will be the recovery reaction.

Any plant, mineral or animal substance can be used as a remedy. The original substance is diluted in liquid repeatedly, and vigorously shaken with each dilution. Unusual as it sounds, these very small amounts of remedies can act very strongly when used properly. Also, because the remedies are very diluted, they are extremely safe. The clinical experience of homeopathy shows that the micro-dose is effective: It works upon comatose people, infants and animals.

Best Homeopathic Treatment of Diabetes

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

Success in the homeopathic treatment of any disease depends on following the principles laid down in the philosophy of Hahnemann and expounded by the wisest of his followers as they interpreted these principles in terms which present day prescribers can understand.

These principles are clear, practicable and satisfying. Man is a triune being, spiritual, mental, physical. All diseases, or disorders, partake of these three realms. Therefore, we treat the man, not his organs by themselves. We strive to learn the patient’s reactions to the disorder present, reactions in the spiritual, mental and physical spheres. We become acquainted with him and try to separate the abnormal or morbid in his case from that which is normal.

This means the gathering of symptoms, the arrangement of them for study into the three classes mentioned, making the spiritual the most important, the mental next and the physical last, also making the symptoms predicated of the patient as a whole far more important than those predicated of one part or only a few parts.

It means suiting a remedy to the patient, not to one of his parts, whether this remedy is well known for the disease in question or not. It means preparing the remedy to act on the plane of this particular patient’s disorder. It means watching the results of a prescription and judging therefrom whether or not a curative process is developing. It means choosing a better remedy or following along with the one first chosen and its complementary remedies.

 

In diabetics we are dealing with borderland cases, with what is called an ultimate in organic disorder. Homeopathy, used for chronic ills from early life, very rarely develops an ultimate. Its power in prevention is marvelous. But, mind you, I am talking about principles and their practice, not about the weaknesses of human nature and human endeavor in physicians as well as in patients.

You will want to know whether the strictly homeopathic physician uses insulin. I cannot answer for all of them. I know that some will not allow it, will take it away at the beginning of homeopathic treatment, regarding it as an element of interference. Since insulin is not really a drug, I think some permit its use. Of one thing I am sure. A patient accustomed to insulin in large doses over a long period is enabled to reduce that dosage soon after beginning treatment and may cut it down one-half or three-quarters or cut it out altogether. The pancreas, if not too far gone, comes back wonderfully toward normal functioning.

Homeopathic Remedies For Sore Throat

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

Sore throats can be annoying, but they are a common occurrence during cold and flu season. They may be caused by either bacterial or viral infections, or simply overuse.

Some over-the-counter medications help ease discomfort, but do not actually treat the root of the problem – the infection. In addition, many of these medicines have adverse effects.

Strep throat is the most common bacterial cause of sore throat. Strep throat can occasionally lead to rheumatic fever. Strep throat often includes a fever (greater than 101°F), white draining patches on the throat, and swollen or tender lymph glands in the neck. Children may have a headache and stomach pain.

Homeopathic medicines are often effective in treating the acute symptoms of a sore throat, though professional constitutional care is usually necessary to cure chronically recurring sore throats. Children with much pain from a sore throat or those who have difficulty opening their mouth or swallowing should receive a culture to determine if they have strep.

How Can you Prepare Homeopathic Medicines

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

The methods of preparation we employ at Hahnemann Laboratories are rooted in the traditional methods used by homeopaths. Homeopathy follows a special system of preparing the medicines and raising their potency. The basic or the starting potency in homeopathy is called “Mother Tincture” if it is in liquid form, and “Mother Triturate” if it is in powder/solid form. The properties of starting potency are very close to the original drug and is not a potency in the true sense. Next potency is then prepared from this basic potency by reducing the concentration of basic drug substance through a special method. Subsequent potencies are prepared step by step from the previous potency not the first potency like fourth potency would be prepared from the third potency, not the first potency and 200th potency would be prepared from 199th potency and so on.

Over-the-counter homeopathic medicines that you can buy in high street shops tend to be in either the 6c or 30c potency. 6c means that the substance has undergone 6 steps in a series of dilutions, where each step involves diluting 1 part medicine to 99 parts alcohol/water.

One part of this tincture is then mixed with ninety-nine parts of distilled water and then shaken vigorously (this shaking is known as ‘succussion’). This is now called the 1c dilution. It is a 1/1,000 dilution, which is never used as a medicine, because it is considered too weak.

The more stages of dilution and succussion the preparation has gone through, the more potent the medicine is – so a 30c medicine is more potent than a 6c medicine.

Homeopathic Remedies For Thyroid

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

Homeopathic remedies have been used successfully by many homeopaths and natural health practitioners to helpful patients manage both hypothyroid and hyperthyroid disease. Homeopathy has been used for hundreds of years and seeks to stimulate an individual’s innate immune response to an external stimulus, allowing the body to heal itself. Spongia Tosta Q two times each day, If Spongia Tosta Q is not available then try any lowest available potency.

In most cases where the thyroid is dysfunctional, symptoms arise relating to the imbalance of the thyroid hormones. Conventional medicine generally treats people with Synthroid, or its generic equivalent, which is a preparation of T4, one of the two primary thyroid hormones. Some people do not respond well to Synthroid and need additional supplementation with T3, the cellular active thyroid hormone. In spite of adjustments made by doctors to some patient’s hormone supplementation, unwanted symptoms may still be present affecting the patient’s lifestyle and overall health.

DIAGNOSIS of hypothyroidism is usually straightforward, once it is suspected. Patients with hypothyroidism due to Hashimoto’s thyroiditis have an elevated level of serum TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone).
