What is this LIKE CURES LIKE That I keep Writing About?

What is this Like Cures Like or Law of Similars, that I keep writing about? What is this giving the similar to what the patient is experiencing in the form of a homeopathic remedy?

Onion

Think how it feels when you are cutting, peeling, or slicing an onion. Your eyes start to tear, to burn and to sting. You wipe or rub your eyes, sometimes using a cloth, trying to get out whatever is in them, if there is anything. Your nose may also start to run or onion 2drip. Other people may say you are crying. You say you are crying. It doesn’t feel like it does when you are crying. Yes, there are tears, but this is not how you feel when you cry. Your eyes don’t usually sting or burn when you are crying.

If someone is experiencing these kinds of symptoms that I described above when they have a cold or an allergy, the homeopathic remedy Allium cepa may be helpful for them. Allium cepa is made from the red onion.

It doesn’t matter if it is a cold or an allergy. It is the symptoms of the burning, the stinging, the tearing, the runny eyes and nose that are guiding the homeopath to the homeopathic remedy. In this case, guiding them to Allium cepa. The name, whether it is a cold or allergy, doesn’t mean anything. It is the symptoms that are the guide.

The example of peeling an onion is used very often to explain Like Cures Like.

Symptoms

The symptoms are the pieces of the total picture of the person. Homeopaths use the symptoms as a guide to what homeopathic remedy is needed for the person; matching the homeopathic remedy to the symptoms that make up the totality of the person. This is Like Cures Like. You can see why the homeopath needs to know a lot about each person, so the similar, the similar homeopathic remedy, can be given.

The symptoms are the way the vital force, the immune system, the chi, of the person is trying to heal itself. Giving the similar in the form of the homeopathic remedy assists in the person’s healing process.

When I meet with a patient, I am finding out about them, about their symptoms. This can be for any health issue that a person comes to homeopathy for – such as menstrual difficulties, anxiety, depression, digestive issues, skin eruptions, fears, headaches, allergies, sore throats, ear infections, autoimmune issues, to list just a few. And then giving the similar in the form of the homeopathic remedy, Like Cures Like.

Coronavirus

Over a year ago, I wrote several blogs on how homeopathy can be helpful with the coronavirus. I want to mention this again. Homeopathy is helpful: 

  • if someone comes down with the coronavirus
  • is having “long haul”, lingering types of symptoms
  • has a “breakthrough” infections
  • has had a vaccine and is experiencing side effects from it, soon after or continuing over a period of time.

Homeopaths all over the world are helping people using homeopathic remedies that are similar to what the person is experiencing, in regards to the coronavirus. Again, this is Like Cures Like.

We don’t hear about how homeopathy is helpful in mainstream news. I want you to know that there are ways to help yourself and your family. And homeopathy can be used along with other healing modality treatments.

It Is Always A Good Time To Use Homeopathy

With the start of new school year, I wanted to repost this blog. Even though I am talking about children in this blog, homeopathy is wonderful for all ages.

*******

When I speak to a mom/dad/grandparent about their child, I almost always say this is a good time for your child to come in for homeopathic care. I say this whether the child is a baby (3 1/2 month old), young child, teenage child or 20 something child, or older. And I say this for whatever health concern the parents have called about.

Why Is It A Good Time?

a-smile-333604_960_720It is a good time because the child is so young. The health issue that the child is experiencing is not entrenched; they have not had it for a long period of time. Children have a very strong vital force/vitality and respond well to homeopathy.

It is a good time because the child may have just started using medications, or is not using them at all. These medications may help with the symptoms and ease the discomfort, the behavior, the breathing, the itching, but they are not really healing. (Some medications may be needed, and it is always important to monitor medications with one’s physician.)

It is a good time because the child is still growing and developing their bodies, their minds, and who they are as a person. As parents, we want the best for our children, in their health and in their life.

It is a good time because often when a child is doing better, it affects the whole family unit, healing the family.

It is a good time because – I have a soft spot for children. I guess this is my “because”.

What Do Parents Call About?

These are some of the health concerns parents have called me about:

  • ear aches and ear infections – the child may have been on several courses of antibiotic.
  • digestive issues, such as acid re flux, spitting up, stomachaches after eating, chronic diarrhea, difficulty eating certain foods, constant nausea
  • skin eruptions – eczema, warts, rashes
  • continually crying and seeming to be in pain or discomfort
  • breathing difficulties, such as asthma
  • difficultly focusing on school work
  • behavioral issues – angry outbursts, tantrums, pulling inside oneself by withdrawing
  • chronic coughs
  • menstrual issues – painful cramps, being very emotional and weepy
  • reactions to vaccinations
  • sleep issues – insomnia, nightmares
  • fears
  • just not feeling well

A SIMPLE EXAMPLE OF HOMEOPATHY – LIKE CURES LIKE

When someone has a cold or an allergy, their nose may be continually runny. Their eyes areĀ  tearing, burning, and stinging. They want to rub their eyes to ease the discomfort. The homeopathic remedy Allium cepa, made from the red onion, can be very helpful for someone who is experiencing these types of symptoms, whether it is a cold or allergies.

Allium cepa is helpful because it is similar to what the person is experiencing. (LIKE CURES LIKE) When you think about what happens when you cut an onion, your eyes tear, burn and sting. And your nose runs. The crying isn’t like when you are sad, which is just tearing, but here, you want to rub and wipe your eyes.

HOMEOPATHY

Homeopathy is not a one size fits all form of medicine. It is always finding out about the person, and giving the homeopathic remedy that fits this person. This applies to someone who is experiencing behavioral issues, ear infections, digestive issues, menstrual issues, allergies, headaches, anything that bothers them.

It is always good to check with your physician. Homeopathy can be used alongside western medicine.
