What is the Difference Between Homeopathy and Allopathy?

What is the Difference Between Homeopathy and Allopathy? | homeopath | Scoop.it
Homeopathy is a two hundred and twenty year old system of medicine.  A German doctor Samuel Hahnemann discovered its principles in 1796, although it is based on observations going back to Hippocrates. Our page Homeopathy Explained has a full description of the history and philosophy. It is now one of the most widespread and recognised … Continue reading "What is the Difference Between Homeopathy and Allopathy? (Modern Medicine)"

Sensation, Source, and Susceptibility: Homeopathy & Chronic Disease

Sensation, Source, and Susceptibility: Homeopathy & Chronic Disease | homeopath | Scoop.it

One of classical homeopathy’s main tenets is that susceptibility MUST be addressed in order for chronic disease and its acute flare-ups to be definitely addressed. Susceptibility is highly individualized, different in every case, and involves internal and external factors, as well as material and nonmaterial dimensions.

Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

Chronic disease is largely an enigma for orthodox medicine, which has focused on material, chemical solutions that can only ever treat symptoms. Dietary and lifestyle factors may trigger inflammation, and environmental toxicities may play a part - but it is estimated that 95% of chronic disease is stress related: therefore emotional and spiritual or non-material. The cause is not the stressors per se but the individual's susceptibility to those stressors. It is the perceived stress that is the issue, closely tied in with the patient's sense of self and identity and responses hard-wired by past trauma. Here homeopathy can help, as this article explains... #chronicdisease #homeopathy #stress #susceptibility #self

Background Perimenopausal period refers to the interval when women's menstrual cycles become irregular and is characterized by an increased risk of depression. Use of homeopathy to treat depression is widespread but there is a lack of clinical trials about its efficacy in depression in peri- and postmenopausal women. The aim of this study was to assess efficacy and safety of individualized homeopathic treatment versus placebo and fluoxetine versus placebo in peri- and postmenopausal wom
Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:

A new study on the homeopathic treatment of depression and hot flushes in menopausal women was just published in one of the most respected medical journals in the world. This study was randomized, double-dummy, double-blind and placebo controlled. It showed that homeopathy was significantly more effective than both placebo AND fluoxetine. And yet it would have been rejected as worthless by the recent Australian NHMRC investigation into homeopathy, because it had only 133 participants, not 150! It shows you how carefully they stacked the deck against homeopathy #homeopathy #menopause #depression #hotflushes

Can You Be Allergic to a Homeopathic Remedy?

Can You Be Allergic to a Homeopathic Remedy? | homeopath | Scoop.it

 "When you use a homeopathic remedy, whether it is in liquid, granule or powder form. The actual remedy is in an energetic form. It is not in a physical form at all.  Like everything in the world, every plant, mineral, organ and so on, has their own specific energetic frequency. Just like a cat’s purr has a specific frequency, that is actually at an energetic level that can calm inflammation. Just as Rose essential oil has a frequency  of 528 hz, that can override any imbalanced frequency and help restore it to it’s natural level.  All homeopathic and tonic remedies are created in a way to remove them completely from their physical earthly form, and release and open them to be only their cosmic, energetic form. Each homeopathic and tonic remedy carries their own frequency and vibrational rate designed by the universe. Each remedy has been “proven” (another blog topic), and well documented on their use for healing specific symptoms in the human body."

Cottesloe Naturopathic Clinic's insight:
 
When patients come to see us for their various problems and we give them a homeopathic remedy, unless they are familiar with the concepts of homeopathy, we often face questions that are difficult to answer succinctly. What is this and what are the ingredients and what does it do? Homeopathy is not physical medicine - it is energetic - and there is no physical substance left. All homeopathic remedies work in the same way, on the homeopathic principle. Therefore in a true sense it matters little what the remedy is, at least as far as that would matter if it was a drug or a herb, because there is no physical substance remaining. It has no properties of itself unless it is prescribed on the homeopathic principle - "like cures like". This is one of the best patient-friendly explanations I have seen...

PHA hits out at health council over homeopathy report

Private Healthcare Australia (PHA) has dismissed a government report that suggests homeopathy is a waste of time and health insurers should not pay for the alternative treatment.The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) says there is “no good-quality evidence to support the claim homeopathy is effective in treating health conditions” But the health insurance industry’s peak body says the research council should instead focus on doctors’ compliance with clinical guidelines

Pulsatilla: weepy and affectionate | Honatur

Pulsatilla: weepy and affectionate | Honatur | homeopath | Scoop.it

Pulsatilla is also known as the windflower. They are usually blonde girls with blue eyes and pale, translucent skin through which you can see their veins.

It can also affect boys and men who have a gentle, emotional character. They are the weepy, affectionate characters of homeopathy.  The boys are calm, sweet, shy and naturally easily scared. Pulsatilla individuals do not like being alone, they are afraid of the dark and always need someone beside them to cuddle and comfort them."

This is an excellent portrait of the homeopathic remedy Pulsatilla, when prescribed as a "constitutional" remedy. That is a remedy that suits all aspects of the person - to boost overall health, physically, mentally and emotionally.

Reflections on Teaching about Alternative Health | Beth Landau-Halpern Homeopath | homeopath | Scoop.it

Oliver Sacks has said, “Diseases cannot be reduced to pathological facts, they constitute other worlds”.

 

"My blog-silence these past few months was due to my having had a fabulous, and rather time-consuming, opportunity to teach a course to 4th year Health Studies students on Alternative Health. Being given the chance to open young minds and eyes to a perspective on health and disease that stands in contrast to the conventional biomedical model that predominates in the west, was both humbling and thrilling. I am sure that I learned as much from my students as they learned from me."

When valves inside the veins are weak or absent, or return of blood from congested areas is inefficient, veins can become enlarged and swollen aching. Varicose veins are most often seen in the legs, although they also occur in other areas.
