Each Person’s Healing Process Is Individual To Them

From the beginning of working with a person, I tell them that there most likely will be a series of homeopathic remedies needed, using one at a time. As we work together, I am learning more about them, witnessing, seeing, hearing them. We are doing this together. I always say, it is the person who is healing themselves.

It may be that they need just one or two doses of the first homeopathic remedy. Or they may need several doses of the remedy over a period of time. Or a higher potency or strength of the homeopathic remedy. Or that that the first homeopathic remedy helped, to a point, and brought up other symptoms and now another homeopathic remedy is needed. This may happen several times, the need for a different remedy.

The image of a ladder has been used by other homeopaths to illustrate a series of homeopathic remedies. One rung is one remedy, the next rung possibly another remedy. The next rung a stronger potency. Next rung, maybe time has passed and the person comes back. And so on. 

It is a process, and individual to the person.

The intention is always for a long lasting healing, not a band aid or quick fix that only lasts for a short time. Although sometimes we do need a quick fix for that moment, and then a homeopathic remedy promoting a long lasting healing afterwards.

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.
