What is Homeopathy?

Safe and effective, homeopathy restores natural balance and aids healing

Dr. Joan Sloss Asks Dr. Bedinghaus about Cured Cases Using Homeopathy

Dr. Samuel Christian Frederic Hahnemann (1755-1843) is the founder of homeopathy. His book, Organon of the Medical Art, presents the foundational philosophy of homeopathy. In the book, he uses the term vital energy or vital principle as the defense mechanism that keeps the living organism in harmony. The vital energy exists in every cell of the body. It is the force that animates our physical, emotional, and mental being.

When the vital energy is touched by some dynamic energy – a harmful agent such as a poison, a physical traumatic event, or a mental or emotional belief pattern – it is untuned or jarred. The vital energy is moved out of balance and creates unpleasant sensations and the abnormal functions we call symptoms of disease.

In homeopathy, we don’t treat diseases or symptoms – we restore balance

Instead, we analyze all the symptoms a person is experiencing and expressing mentally, emotionally, and physically as the totality of symptoms. If we use the idea of dis-ease, there really is only one disease – the vital energy is out of balance.

Symptoms are a reflection of the problem: the vital energy’s attempt to heal, to restore harmony. In traditional medicine, the goal is to get rid of symptoms without focus on the balance of the whole person. Doctors use drugs to suppress, kill, or stamp out symptoms. However, this can interfere with the healing response the symptom is trying to express.

Traditional drugs can actually drive the distuned vital energy into expressing deeper pathology. In other words, symptoms can become worse. This is one of the reasons we have seen such a tremendous increase in chronic diseases in both children and adults.

In homeopathy, our goal is to help the vital energy and ultimately restore balance. We use specially prepared medicines or remedies to create the same symptom picture the person is expressing. This is referred to as “like cures like.” This is the law of nature.


Basic principles of healing in homeopathy

In classical homeopathy, we use 3 principles to heal:

  1. Totality of symptoms – Homeopathy is holistic, individualized medicine. We treat based on your unique emotional, mental, and physical symptoms.
  2. The single medicine – In classical homeopathy, we do not use combination remedies, but rather use the one single remedy that is right for that time in your life, whether for acute or chronic conditions. This remedy is most similar to the totality of symptoms you are expressing.
  3. The minimum dose – A person’s inherent healing powers are so strong that only a small stimulus is needed to begin the healing process. The second dose is given only when the first one has completed its action.

Not a quick fix, homeopathy is healing on a deep level and a path to wellness

Homeopathy can help you regain wellness and balance in your life. But it is not a quick fix, especially if you have a chronic illness that has taken years to develop.

When you apply homeopathic treatment, it may take time to recognize improvements in your health. On the other hand, you may feel better quickly. To realize the greatest benefits, you must make a commitment to continue with your homeopathic care, since it may take months or even years to completely restore you to wholeness.


How we prepare homeopathic remedies

Homeopathic remedies are described in the Materia Medica. The remedies are prepared so they are strengthened and made more potent by actually decreasing their material substance, thus making them safe from toxic side effects. This process is called succussion or potentization. The remedies are then diluted and shaken strongly. For every dilution and succussion, the remedy becomes more diluted, but at the same time much more potent. The remedies come from natural substances: plants, minerals, and animals.

How does this work? We believe a shadow molecule or an energetic memory of the original substance is released through the succussion. In fact, research suggests that water holds memory. This energetic memory can have an effect on the vital energy without causing a noxious side effect from too much material substance. Remember, the goal with homeopathic remedies is to stimulate the vital energy to return to balance, harmony, and wholeness.

The preparation of homeopathic remedies is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. Homeopathy is safe for pregnant women and even newborns. No matter your age, you can experience better general health through homeopathic medicine. And in many cases, specific problems can be completely healed.
