There is a need for homeopathy. People need homeopathy. Every time someone calls me, for whatever health concern they have, I say to myself after talking with them, there really is a need for homeopathy.
There is a need because people are not feeling better. They may be on medications, which temporarily eases the symptoms, but they are not feeling better. There has been no healing. People are looking for other ways to help in their health care. Looking for a deeper healing, a gentler healing and no side effects. Homeopathy fits that description.
Need for homeopathy in acute conditions
A post on The National Center for Homeopathy’s (NCH) Facebook page writes about the need for homeopathy. Specifically, the topic is how strains of bacterial infections have become resistant to antibiotics due to their over use in medical care and in farm animals. The post continues to say how homeopathy is very effective in the treatment of bacterial and viral infections, in fact, homeopathy has been effective with these kinds of infections long before antibiotics were developed. Dr. Margaret Chan, the Director-General of the World Health Organization is quoted in the post. She says, ” Things as common as strep throat or a child’s scratched knee could once again kill…”

Since this post on the NCH Facebook page is on bacterial infections, I have included a wonderful video on how homeopathy helped a man who had developed a MRSA infection. The title of the video is “One Story of Homeopathy – healing a Super bug”. It was made by the New York City filmmaker Marc Wishengrad about his own treatment when he contracted the “Super Bug” or MRSA – Methicillin-resistant-Staphylococcus aureus.
Most of the time, the bacterial infection is not as severe as the one that Marc Wishengrad experienced. Homeopathy is very helpful when there are infections and high fevers. About two months ago, I received a phone call from the mother of a patient of mine. She was calling me to say that her 13 year old son was experiencing a very painful sore throat. It had come on very suddenly and he had a fever. She suspected it was strep, and was planning on taking him to the doctor, and perhaps have a throat culture taken. I suggested using the homeopathic remedy Belladonna.
The picture of Belladonna is a sore throat that comes on suddenly, violently and severely painful. There is a fever, a restlessness, and sometimes hallucinations are experienced. Although the person is burning hot, there is no thirst. There can be a sensitivity to light, and it is often has right sided symptoms. I told the mom to give him several doses of Belladonna, and to call me the next day. When I spoke to her the fever had broken and his throat was no longer as sore. Belladonna helped a lot. It is understanding what the suffering is of the person, and then selecting a homeopathic remedy similar to that suffering. This is Like cures Like or the Law of Similars.
The MRSA infection and the sore throat are both examples of acute conditions. Homeopathy is wonderful in the healing of acute conditions.
Need for homeopathy in chronic conditions
Most of the people who call me are calling about chronic conditions. These can range from skin eruptions, asthma, digestive issues, menstrual problems, urinary tract infections, chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, obstruction in the nose, constriction feeling in the throat, ongoing gum pain and more. Chronic conditions are ongoing. Sometimes they ease off and the person feels better, but then there is a flare up, again, which often happens when there is more stress in someone’s life. Medication may ease the symptoms, but there is never a healing. Homeopathy is extremely helpful in these kinds of chronic conditions.
So when you or a loved one have a need, whether an infection or an on going condition, it may be time to go to a homeopath for treatment.
