A Discussion on Homeopathy
How does it work?

Homeopathy works by giving to the sick a remedy that produced a similar set of symptoms in the healthy. It stimulates the bodies own defenses and immune system to get rid of disease symptoms. It has been proved effective against acute, chronic and epidemic diseases.

Throughout the ages the non-homeopaths who investigated Homeopathy became Homeopaths themselves. One prime case is Dr J. T. Kent who had failed to cure his wife's sickness and none of his colleagues were of use either until she saw a Homeopath who cured her in a very short time. He then studied Homeopathy and became one of its masters.

I myself was converted when I saw BBC2's program QED (Quat Erat Demonstrandum = That which needed to be proved is demonstrated).

 During the program discussions, non-homoeopath doctors claimed that as there was no chemical basis to Homeopathy, it was all a matter of the placebo effect. That is to say the patients were led to believe they were getting better and so they did. (Question is - how is it that a patient having being 'treated by an army of doctors all to no avail, then comes to see a Homeopath and is cured and it is all down to placebo effect - so how come the doctor's placebo effect didn't work but the homeopath's did??)

To counter, Homeopaths said that there are those for who we can prescribe Homeopathic remedies who will not be influenced by the placebo effect - These being babies and animals.

An experiment was set up where a dairy herd was divided in to two halves - each having its own field and trough. Dairy herds are very prone to mastitis (Inflammation of the udders). Normally antibiotics are given and the milk needs to be thrown away for a few weeks.

Into each trough (which continuously filled as the cows drank from it) about 10ml of a solution was added - One being just distilled water and the other a homeopathic remedy which works well against mastitis. The bottles had been marked A & B respectively. Two sealed envelopes were handed to the producer also marked A & B.

After a few weeks the farm was visited and the farmer was questioned about the sickness level of his cows.

He said that one lot he had about 20 cases of mastitis and in the other there had only been the one case. When the envelopes were opened, it was found that the lot with only one case of mastitis had had the Homeopathic treatment. QED!!!

What potencies are used to treat or to cause immunization? It depends if you are using it to prevent or treat.

To prevent, a 30C is used.

To treat, again a 30C dropped into a 250 ml bottle of water can be used quite frequently as and when needed.

Higher potencies are not to be used unless your Homeopath feels the Rubrics are right for them.. They are never to be used by a novice.

But if you are using the Similimum (and you won't know until you have tried) then any potency will give you a good result - how long it will hold may vary.

Boenninghausen and Boger et al. who pioneered the use of nosodes for treating epidemic outbreaks generally used 200c of either the nosode or the epidemic simillimum on a regular schedule as long as the person was in actual danger -- every week, every two weeks, not less often than every three weeks. If there was any question about the strength of the individual's vital force, they then used 30c. Generally both homeopathic theory and experimental data strongly support prophylactic treatment of people probably exposed to an epidemic but not yet showing gross symptoms.
