Homeopathy

Homeopathy
By Walter Last Homeopathy is a system of medicine based on the principle that 'like cures like'. A substance that produces disease-like symptoms in healthy people will in properly diluted form cure a sick person with similar symptoms. For example, onion juice will cause watering, irritated eyes and sneezing; but in a very diluted form (Allium cepa) it is useful in relieving symptoms of eye and nose irritation, as in hayfever. To distinguish it from homeopathy, conventional medicine, in which symptoms are treated with large doses of opposing agents, is known as allopathy. However, homeopathy cannot be understood as a substance based method, such as drug medicine or herbalism where any healing effect is due to chemical reactions. A simple calculation shows that in the higher potencies not a single molecule of the original substance will be present. But these high potencies are often more effective than low potencies. Therefore, homeopathy can only be understood as working with energy remedies. The explanation is that every natural substance has an etheric field around its molecular structure. The special shaking action or potentizing used in homeopathy separates the etheric fields from their material substance. The latter is then discarded and the former concentrated. These concentrated etheric fields are much more potent in this way than when they were combined with matter. Similar etheric concentrates can be produced with radionics instruments. The healing effect of such concentrates depends on their vibrational frequency. Because of this the name vibrational medicine has been coined for these methods. Homeopathic medicines, properly diluted or 'potentized', may be used as prophylactics; they will also combat allergy reactions. A homeopathic medicine's sphere of curative action is found by administering it in high doses to human volunteers of both sexes and recording the emotional, pathological and physiological reactions to the medicine. This test is called a proving, and hundreds of substances have been proved in this way. Consequently, homeopathic remedies are effective over the whole range of mental and physical disorders. The medicines are made from plants, minerals, animals and chemicals. Remedies from diseased animal products are called nosodes. Sometimes a product of a disease is used in potentized form for treating the same disease; this is called isopathy. Homeopaths may either use the classical approach or practice clinical homeopathy. The classical approach is to use only one dose of one remedy at a time and another dose or remedy only if any effect of the previous remedy has worn off. More commonly clinical homeopathy is used where several remedies are combined and taken several times daily. Use Your Own Body Fluids While for general treatment of common symptoms it is more convenient to use established homeopathic remedies, to overcome obstinate individual problems it is frequently more effective to prepare remedies from your own body fluids; this a form of isopathy known as autotherapy. Urine, for example, contains traces of almost all body chemicals: the normal ones such as enzymes and hormones, as well as foreign and toxic substances, viruses, and so on. A properly diluted
