What Is Homeopathy?
It is the most truly ‘holistic’ therapy in natural medicine.
YES, BRITAIN’s ROYAL FAMILY are avid generational ambassadors and have been using homeopathy for YEARS.
Homeopathy is a unique system of medicine that has been in popular use in the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States of America, and many other countries for over 200 years. While some of the principles of homeopathy were in use by the ancient Greeks and Egyptians, it is the German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann who is credited with the discovery and development of homeopathy into a system of medicine.
Homeopathic remedies are unique in their actions, seeking to help stimulate the body’s own defense systems to enable a completely natural cure.
Homeopathic medicines are manufactured using a method that dilutes the original substance to a point where there are no molecules of the original substance left. Remedies this dilute contain no drugs and create no side effects. Each of the remedies is selected to match a series of symptoms that have been recorded in over 200 years of use.
Complex or compound homeopathy differs from classical homeopathy, in so far, that the latter will only prescribe one single remedy for one complaint. Complex homeopathy is based on several, concurring dysfunctions and consequently, its prescriptions include several homeopathic remedies, phytotherapy remedies, etc. in any one tablet or dilution. Reportedly 80% of all homeopathic prescribing in Germany at this moment concerns complex (compound) homeopathy. The Heel® remedies I use are manufactured in Germany and are fully licensed in Germany, Belgium, Spain, and the USA. Heel preparations are distributed to physicians and pharmacists in over 55 countries.
Complex homeopathy can be used successfully for every age group and for many clinical conditions. Clinical trials on the most commonly used Heel remedies have been published in Biomedical Therapy, International Journal of Integrated Medicine; randomised trials on Traumeel® for instance have been published in The Lancet and other peer-reviewed medical journals.
In chronic degenerative conditions, patients are advised to have a Biological Terrain Screening (VEGA) first as this provides a solid platform for the use of antihomotoxic treatment. Because an often overlooked point is that Prof.Dr. Reckeweg MD stated that homeopathic remedies, either single or complex, are most effective when applied to well-nourished patients. A patient with a Pantothenic Acid, Pyridoxine, Magnesium, and Zinc deficiency is unlikely to respond as well as a patient with a full deck of nutrients. For simple clinical cases, a detailed interview & clinical examination usually provides sufficient information to prescribe along with the principles of Prof.Dr. Reckeweg’s Homeotoxicology.
One advantage of prescribing complex homeopathy is that patients remain relatively independent; there is no necessity for repeated clinic visits. It allows patients to give themselves treatment both at home and at work. Another advantage is that complex homeopathic treatment can be augmented so well with for instance acupuncture, spinal manipulation, lymph drainage, connective tissue massage, or physiotherapy. Thirdly and most importantly there is the enormous advantage over allopathic medication that it causes no iatrogenic damage.
To facilitate the use of his homotoxicological system, Prof.Dr. Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg MD used familiar medical nomenclature to describe diseases which was a departure from classical homeopathy. This is why it is much easier to use for clinicians not trained as classical homeopaths. A central pillar of his formulas are the potency chords (standard = 12x, 30x, 200x) due to which the incidence of healing crises is greatly reduced; also the body makes use of the best-suited potency within the chord. Special types of homeopathic medications are nosodes, suis-organ preparations, catalysts, and homeopathically adjusted allopathic medications.
Complex homeopathic medications frequently contain active constituents in addition to the classical homeopathic remedies -ie besides the traditional homeopathic preparations from the plant, animal and mineral kingdoms. These additional agents serve the purpose of achieving more intensive therapeutic action.
Injeel® has a potency chord (12x, 30x, 200x) of a single remedy and offers a healing stimulus for a wide range of disorders. Injeel forte® is also a single remedy in multiple attenuations but has the lower potency 4x added to a normal Injeel which makes it better suited for acute conditions.
Nosode Preparations are homeopathic attenuations of pathogenic materials from humans or animals including tissues, serums, metabolic products, or secretions, plus viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Nosodes are sterilised to ensure safety from infection and are often used where a previous illness is suspected of being the cause of a current illness which the patient’s defenses will be able to overcome. Nosodes are particularly appropriate for application during the cellular phases.
Suis-Organ Preparations are homeopathic attenuations of healthy animal organs. Dr. Reckeweg preferred the use of suis-organs, derived from pigs, because of the biological similarity to human tissue. Homeopathic suis-organs improve the functioning of the corresponding human organ.
Complex homeopathy offers a safe and effective individualised treatment.
Homeopathic remedies are so gentle that they can be safely used during pregnancy and by those already taking orthodox medication or suffering from conditions that restrict the use of some medications.
Homeopathic remedies are used in both hospitals and medical practices, by doctors and lay practitioners alike. In Britain, the Royal Family has been confirmed homeopathic users for over 100 years.
Homeopathy has also been found to be helpful in animal health care and many pet owners, farmers, and veterinarians are using homeopathic remedies to treat a variety of animal conditions.
Commonly Asked Questions
Do homeopathic remedies have side effects?
There are no recorded cases of side effects occurring when homeopathic remedies have been used in accordance with their directions for use.
Is it safe to take homeopathic remedies containing Arnica during pregnancy?
Homeopathic remedies are prepared by subjecting the base substance to a special process called ‘potentisation’, which highly dilutes the base substance and enhances the remedy’s curative properties. There have not been any recorded cases of harm coming to a mother or child during pregnancy as a result of using homeopathic remedies appropriately. So, yes, remedies containing Arnica may be taken during pregnancy, however, a health care professional should be consulted before using any medication in the first three months of pregnancy.
