What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is the brainchild of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German who lived over 200 years ago. He discovered that anything a substance can cause in the way of symptoms, that same substance in a small dose can take those symptoms away. The only thing we have today outside of homeopathic treatments which is similar to that is allergy treatments where people will get injections of the allergen they’re allergic to, to try to desensitize them. That’s quite a crude form of what homeopathy does.

How to Find a Homeopathic Doctor

Homeopathy in the hands of a skillful practitioner can make a huge difference in some very difficult diseases. Many chronic diseases, including autoimmune diseases, and many difficult issues which are not classified by conventional medicine can be helped and sometimes cured completely by homeopathy. To do this, you need somebody who really knows what they’re doing.

How Homeopathic Treatments Work

Let me give you some examples. Is the person hot or cold, meaning do they tolerate heat or cold or not? Are they thirsty or thirstless? If they’re thirsty, do they want cold, room temperature or hot drinks? Are they affected by weather? Are there any foods that affect them that they love, that they dislike or that make them ill? We want to know about how people perspire and if there’s anything unusual about it. We want to know about foods they might like. We go on in great detail.
Then we get into the emotional side because very often, people fall ill after one single great stress or a series of great stresses. Some people develop migraines. If you ask them when they began, they’ll say, “It began six, seven or eight years ago.” You ask, “What happened?” The person says, “My son was killed in Iraq. He was a soldier,” and they begin to cry.
