Homeopathy has been around since the 1700's.

There were two schools that developed then, one was Homeopathy, and the other Allopathy (modern Physicians {MD's} are Allopaths). The big money was with the Allopaths

Medical schools, associations, and all the specialties, pharmacies,etc., derived from the Allopathic thought. Homeopathy and Homeopathic medicines or remedies, as they are called, are used today in Allopathic applications, for example, the Homeopathic preparation Colchicine, which is Saffron, causes, when eaten in quantity, Gout, as one of its symptoms of poisoning.  Allopaths use Colchicine today, as a treatment for Gout, and most of them don't even realize that they are using a Homeopathic remedy that has been around since the 1700's!

The Mayo Clinic just published a paper saying that "in their opinion, Homeopathic treatment works." "Like cures Like".

Homeopathy is a 200 year old, well-established practice based on principles attuned to an individual's body. Their basic principle is that "like cures like'' or the Law of Similars. A substance that would cause specific symptoms when taken in its raw form, will alleviate those symptoms, but THE SYMPTOMS MUST MATCH! Rather than focusing on disease organisms, and how to kill them, as in the case with synthetic medicines, Homeopathy works to eliminate the imbalance that allowed those certain disease organisms, worms, conditions, etc., to proliferate.

In Homeopathy, we look for SYMPTOMS, which lead to finding the imbalance. Germs, bacteria, pathogens, worms and their eggs are present everywhere, all the time. The reason why some people become ill, or infested with worms, is because those pathogens find the conditions favorable to their growth.

You wouldn't blame a fly maggot for a piece of rotting meat would you? The maggot is an opportunist finding a place to live and grow where conditions are most favorable, living off of the detrious of the rotting carcass. So, is the germ, bacteria, condition, etc. If a person's body is in balance, (and the Natural state of the Human body is Health, in its most perfect form), then worm eggs, bacterium, etc., will not proliferate, and the body's own defenses will eliminate the egg, or envelop the bacterium, and the person will not even know that a battle has been fought and won inside his body.

Homeopathic remedies are made by sucussion..that is, for an example, the sucussion of an Herb into a homeopathic remedy is thus:

An Herb or substance is pulverized into a mass in a mortar. The mass, is then dissolved into alcohol (if that is the correct agent for the particular Herb or substance, water or other materials are used also). That is left for a proscribed amount of time, the parent or translucent liquid is drawn off into another clean vessel, and that is a Mother Tincture. One drop of the Mother tincture is put into a bottle of water or alcohol, and sucumd, or rapped against a hard surface, 100 times. Of that mixture, one drop is taken, the rest is put away, and the drop is put into a new, clean vessel of liquid, and sucussed again. To reach a IX potency, the remedy has to be sucussed many times. The smaller potencies, 3X, 6X, 3OX, are like shooting at the condition with a shotgun. Some particles will make a bullseye, but in case there are other attenuating circumstances, that may need treatment the broader spectrum of the low potencies will often be of more value. The lower potencies are Weaker in strength. The higher potencies; 1M, 10M, 50M, CM, and MM, are much more potent and are used like a high powered rifle. They do not bother themselves with other conditions but are very specific in their actions. If they miss, or it is the wrong remedy, they will prove, or they will do nothing at all. If it is the correct remedy, they will completely cure the condition permanently.

A Homeopathic remedy may do three things: It may cure. It may do nothing at all. Or it may "prove".

To "prove", means the remedy will temporarily cause the symptoms it is given to eliminate. An antidote is always recommended to have on hand, to eliminate this possibility.

The British Medical profession's revered publication: "The Lancet" acknowledges that the Homeopathic Doctrine is true.

For the practice of Homeopathy, we must know the symptoms which each remedy has produced, and we must have these so arranged, that they can be found instantly for any required region of the body. Samuel Hahneman the Father of Homeopathy as we know it, arranged them, for each of the remedies tested (proven), in a definite anatomical order, and this arrangement is the foundation of the order in which the symptoms are given in all works on the subject compiled since his day.

The Homeopathic Materia Medicas thus consist of schematic arrangements of the symptoms produced by each remedy, together with applications from the observed action of remedies in practice.

Just remember, the LOWER the potency, that is, the closest to the Mother tincture is,( 3X, 3OX), the WEAKER, but BROADER its action. A low potency has to be taken for a longer period of time in order to cure. The Higher potencies, (30C, 100C, 1M, CM, etc.), the less (almost on a molecular level) actual substance it contains, but is STRONGER, and more PRECISE in its action.

Usually one or two doses of a high potency will cure, if its application is correct. Normal doses are about one part per million, or even less, of inert ingredients, and although these seem rather small, they still contain highly refined properties which are very powerful in helping the body heal itself.

Personally, I liken a Homeopathic remedy to a Computer Chip., and the body, a Computer. If some processes are out of balance, or off.. the remedy, when taken. acts like a collective chip inserted into the computer, which click click clicks the out of balance conditions back to where they are supposed to be. Homeopathic remedies are widely available. They are sold now, at your regular pharmacies, off the shelf. No prescriptions are needed for most.

The remedies are very inexpensive, with One dose going for about $5. All Homeopathics are Safe and Effective, and have been used for Hundreds of Years. I have been a Homeopath for 30 years.

I do Research in Homeopathy for Physicians, Psychiatrists, and Veterinarians, as well as Individuals, Researching 167 different Materia Medicas from all over the world, each containing over 3,000 remedy descriptions to match each individual's unique symptomology.
