Born in 1810 and still going strong, based on the observations of Dr Samuel Hahnemann, its founder, who worked with the principle that if a dose of a substance is administered artificially to a client, the effect of which sufficiently closely simulates the illness from which the client is known to be suffering, the original illness disappears. During Dr Hahnemann’s own lifetime, homoeopathy became universally popular, clients and other homoeopaths came from all over the world to Germany then later France to see this eminent man.
The most remarkable fact about homoeopathy is that it has been constantly used all over the world for over 200 years and remains as valuable a method of treatment as ever. Homoeopathy is a therapeutic system which assists the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Homoeopaths see illness as recognition of disharmony within the body and recognise that it is the whole person that needs treating rather than the illness. Homoeopathy is a form of holistic medicine used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat common, acute and chronic conditions.
One of the advantages of homoeopathy is that it can be used alongside other medical procedures which a Doctor may be giving, thus holistically helping to shorten the extent of the illness and convalescence. I have been using homoeopathic tablets, pillules and tinctures within the family to treat common ailments and conditions for over 30 years; it is safe, non-toxic and non-addictive. I dowse the DNA sample and run my finger down my remedy list until I get a yes reading, I may get more than one so I will re dowse then prioritise the right remedy and usage.
Then I dowse to see whether the remedy is to be taken in tablet, pillules or tincture form, selecting potency is the next stage and I mainly use 6c and 30c. Personally I find 6c is most commonly used for long standing physical ailments and 30c I find most beneficial for emotional conditions.
Homoeopathy is not restricted to humans. Family pets and large animals are also susceptible to illness and equally amenable to treatment with homoeopathic remedies by following the same principles whether they are tablet or tincture in form. I often dowse flower petals and plant leaves in the home and garden to see if they need a quick “pick-me-up”. Homoeopathy is a truly wonderful therapy; it is a safe and effective medicine for all.
Homoeopathic remedies are obtained from all natural sources of the plant and animal kingdom and from minerals. For example ‘apis’ from ‘apis mellifica’, the honey bee, the remedy is prepared from whole bees dissolved in alcohol. Bee stings, as many know to their cost, cause rapid watery swellings which smart and burn. The source of the remedy ‘calcarea’ is calcium carbonate derived from oyster shells. Calcium is essential for healthy bones and teeth and for the proper functioning of nerves and muscles.
