HOMEOPATHY:

What is homeopathy? Similia similibus curentur. Let like be treated by like.

The law of similars was a concept originally promulgated in the 4 th century B.C. by Hippocrates: “Through the like, disease is produced, and through the application of the like it is cured.

Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), however, is really considered the father of homeopathy. Using himself as a guinea pig, he commenced research on Quinine in the treatment of malaria (back then malaria was called “ague”).  Hahnemann recorded the effect the substance (Cinchona) had on himself.   Through this experiment, he learned that the medicine produced the same symptoms that it was used to treat.

He continued his experiments, which he called “provings”, using other substances, and in 1796, published his findings. To this day, experiments are still being conducted and the materia medica expanded.

Homeopathic substances are derived from the plant, animal and mineral kingdoms. The remedies are usually dispensed in various forms:

DEFINITIONS:
   

POWDERS:

 

 

Individually wrapped and taken dry under the tongue.

TABLETS:
  Supplied in plastic or glass containers and may be chewed or allowed to dissolve in the mouth.
LIQUIDS
  Supplied in dropper bottles and taken under the tongue.
PILLS
  Little round balls, which tend to dissolve quicker than tablets; may be chewed or allowed the dissolve in the mouth.
GRANULES
  Supplied in glass containers and usually administered by the capful.
OINTMENTS & GELS
  Applied topically
TINCTURES:
  Dilutions for topical use and contain soothing substances such as arnica, calendula, hypercal and urtica.

Homeopathic remedies may be purchased either individually or in combinations. Potencies can be confusing until you realize one basic rule: Less is more. This means that a 30X potency is more potent than a 10X potency. Here in the United States , you will usually see remedies in the X scale (decimal scale). On the X scale, this means that one drop of the mother tincture is diluted with nine drops of either alcohol or water; it is then succussed. The dilution process continues until the desired potency is achieved. Surprisingly, the succussion process is vital to the viability of the potency; remedies not succussed simply don’t work.

Homeopathic remedies are to be taken in a clean mouth. The product itself should not be touched or handled. With pellets or tablets, the remedy can be tapped into the container’s cap and then tossed directly into the mouth; with liquid remedies, simply drop directly into the mouth or dilute with high quality water in a clean glass. Mix with a plastic spoon. Toss out any remedy, which is accidentally dropped or otherwise contaminated.
