Homeopathic Healing: The Mis-Education of Symptoms
What do symptoms have to do with healing? Arenʼt you busy enough that theyʼre just
simply in the way?
There are many businesses and industries that would have you believe this. They
make a lot of money from offering you drugs that suppress or mask your symptoms for
the sake of not inconveniencing your life. You can carry on and just take that pill, or
pills, and continue on...until you need another pill to deal with the side effects from those
pills. So long as the drugs and symptoms donʼt interfere with the convenience of your
life, it continues on and on, with more and more drugs being added.
Yet, your symptoms are your bodyʼs natural feedback loop that tell you
something is wrong in the body. The symptoms are not the problem. We need to
look deeper than that for true healing.
Your body has a natural healing ability.Take, for example, a cut on your finger.
Over time, it will heal itself. There is relatively little you need to do to help it. Such a
healing intelligence not only occurs on the physical level, but also on the mental and
emotional levels of who we are, as well. This natural tendency of the
body/mind/emotions to heal is referred to, in homeopathy, as the Vital Force.
The Vital Force is a non-physical, in-animate, healing intelligence. So far, modern
science has yet to measure where or how it works. Much of the scrutinyhomeopathy
receives resides in this feature. I donʼt get too hung up on that, though. Can scientific
instruments measure how much you love something or someone? Physical instruments
can measure what physical parts of the brain are involved when someone loves, but the
experience itself cannot be quantified or measured. Such mysteries open up our minds
and our hearts to the workings of the universe that cannot be explained, yet remain
completely relevant to our life.
Inhomeopathy, disease originates as a mis-tunement of the Vital Force. This is in
energetic terms, not in biochemical pathways or physiological processes. Such an
energetic disturbance manifests its effects as the physiological/biochemical symptoms
that we all experience. The symptoms can be mental or emotional or physical, or more
