Homeopathy is a Holistic Form of Medicine

I was asked recently what is the difference between holistic medicine and homeopathy.  I can’t say what exactly holistic medicine is, since that is not what I am trained and educated in. I would presume it is looking a the whole person. A doctor who is practicing holistic medicine may not be practicing homeopathy. Being a homeopathic practitioner or homeopath I can say what homeopathy is.

Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine. Homeopathy is a system of medicine developed by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann in the late 1700’s.  It has its own set of principles. The main principle is the Law of Similars or LIKE CURES LIKE.  In fact, the word homeopathy means “similar suffering”. Through the observation and understanding of the totality of what the person is experiencing (it is more than just symptoms), the homeopath selects the homeopathic medicine that is most similar to what the person is experiencing. It is like matching the ill state of the person with a homeopathic medicine that is similar to that state. This homeopathic medicine stimulates the person’s own healing process. This is LIKE CURE LIKE.  Western medicine operates from the Law of Opposites. Both the Law of Similar and the Law of Opposites have been around since the time of the Greeks.

Not only is homeopathy holistic, but it is also addresses the individual. Each of us experience what bothers us uniquely to ourselves.  The fact that homeopathy really looks at the individual person is both wonderful and challenging to me. Wonderful, because the homeopath really takes the time to observe and to understand what bothers the person; and challenging, because sometimes it does take time to understand what the “suffering” is like for this individual person.

And by taking the time to see the person in their totality and in their individuation, a deep healing can take place.

Benefits of Homeopathic Treatment – Healthy Mother and Baby

I received an email from Narayana Publishers a few days ago, announcing the edition of their newest issue of SPECTRUM OF HOMEOPATHY, a homeopathic publication. The title of this new issue is NEW LIFE-PERINATAL HOMEOPATHY. This particular issue writes up cases of babies and young children who were experiencing different physical and emotional symptoms, such as colic, restlessness at night, difficulty breastfeeding, ear problems, not sleeping well, failure to thrive, eczema and more. Part of the case taking or case uncovering process of these babies and children was to hear about how the mother was before and during her pregnancy. This helped the homeopaths to come to the homeopathic medicine that was most similar to what the baby or child were experiencing.

Since I had mentioned how the state of the mother can affect the baby in two of my posts, I wanted to give you the link to this publication. My two posts are: “Homeopathy: Supporting A Woman Through a Caesarian Birth and Recovery” and “Colic – Homeopathy Can Ease the Discomfort”.  Very often, the mother and the baby may be experiencing the same state during the pregnancy. Homeopathy can be so helpful for both the mother and the baby. And even more helpful, is the mother deciding to have homeopathic treatment before she gets pregnant. Possibly the father as well.

Here is the link. Once on the site, click on NEW LIFE-PERINATAL HOMEOPATHY, and then scroll down to “interactive reading excerpt”, and you can read some of this issue online.
