Re: “Using More Than One Remedy In A Case”
Another great article from Elaine! I love the way Elaine writes. Clear, to the point and always in a way I can understand. I wish there were more articles such as this in the E-zine and less “technical” ones. These are what the majority of us read and learn from. Way to go Elaine and keep it up!
I love your articles in the Hpathy ezine and would like to read more of them. Several of these articles say just what my
clients need to hear as they are well written and very
entertaining at the same time. I am a recent graduate of Caduceus School of Homeopathy.
So, here is the thing — Arnica completely took care of two things — Spitting and the red spots. Oh, yes! Sore throat gone too. So, I guess this could be your next quiz? I’ll curiously follow it to see how many people come up with Arnica. Once again, that was a brilliant diagnosis by you. You are the best!
You are simply a brilliant teacher, excellence by par. God bless you with long life.
Just checking in on Hpathy and LOVED the interview you did with Alan Schmukler. I thought your Sulphur poem was most excellent! Wonderful! So funny as well as accurate. You have a gift for writing which I really enjoy. You reach the reader with insights and humor as well as knowledge and share that with them. Kudos to you!
I’m so happy you selected my chit chat for the Quiz ..and yes more happy for the Gold Star! I never really had an idea that learning Homoeopathy could be so fun, musical and healthy!!
A great article – lucid and detailed. Very practicable. Will guide beginners/ dabblers in the right direction. Will reassure many.
Re: “A Flurry of Questions”
Wow Elaine – even as a student, I know the brilliance of this article! Perhaps because I am already an herbalist and energy worker and have similar issues. I will say that homeopathy may kick up the bar a notch though! 😉 Thanks for a dose of awesomeness!

Thanks Elaine, I enjoy your work. You make everything so clear.
I’ll have to check out your web-site.

Everything is from Master’s pen- based on knowledge and experience. It’s like a torch light making things clear and understandable. Thanks Elaine, continue the good work.
Re: “Why Do We Have to Talk About Diet–Again?”
Elaine, I just read your column on food and it is hilarious! You really get the reader’s attention and tell them just what they are doing wrong and how to change. They can’t miss your vivid visual examples to get your point!
Re: Elaine’s Tidbits by Elaine Lewis :
Packed full of knowledge and wisdom. Please continue the tidbits every month if possible. They will be helpful and benefit many. Thanks Elaine!
Thanx again Elaine! Learning a lot from you. I wish other homoeopaths would have the same urge to share knowledge … It’s my firm belief, “The more you give the more you get”. Wishing you more and more.
I’m a skeptic trying to keep an open mind when it comes to homeopathy; I’ve no experience with the practice but the concept fascinates me. I’ve read a few of your articles today and I just wanted to let you know that for the first time its actually starting to make sense. Thank you for taking the time to write!
The segment, “Why Do We Have to Talk about Diet – Again”, by Elaine Lewis was superb! Straight talk that needed to be said.

Thanks a lot for this. Your articles on case management, potency and repetition have helped me a lot in my cases.
From Roberto Camacho on “Revisiting: Constant Spitting With Sore Throat”–
Excellent as always. Very, very good teacher (of course, with the aid of Shana).
Thanks Elaine, you are a good teacher, indeed !!
Like always, you are the best teacher and true ‘Homeopathic Philosopher’, reminding again and again, the doctrine of ” what causes can cure “, thanks once again. I really miss your comments every now and again…
God bless you.
Physician par excellence!!!
Re: “Tidbits part-4 (It’s All About Cancer This Time)”
Elaine, what a great article! Cancer treatment is so difficult. You’ve done great research and I have learned about a few things that are available that I didn’t know about. We need all the tools we can find that help us, individually, or as homeopaths. Thank you for sharing.
Re: “Tidbits, part-5”
Extremely useful tidbits . these all are very useful. I always like ur tidbits & wait for the next one. Please continue with the same. Thanks!
Elaine I always admire your great work. I read all your articles. Bravo and thank you.
The neck injury cartoon is hilarious. ha ha. This is always the first article I read… If at all you remember, I am a fan of yours and requested you many times to please compile all your articles into a book. Otherwise I will have to work hard and get a printout of all your articles…….
Re: “How To Make Your Own Remedy”:
I really like the way you explain so clearly compared to others who try, it seems, to go out of their way to make it difficult for the beginner, which I find doesn’t help the Homeopathic doctrine to grow.
I see you have another fan who is requesting you to make a BOOK (hello?!) from your articles or in general.
Sentiments echoed glad to see.
So when is it forthcoming? Take care,
What a great and clear exposition of basic questions that every homeopath faces every day.
Elaine: learn with fun….this is what you aim for in your teaching techniques.
Your versatile knowledge is a sure lighthouse in an ocean of homeopathy. I really await for your quizzes and your articles are a forever treasure. The cartoons are good Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge.
– Vamsi Sudha
Elaine, one reason I love the Hpathy ezine is because it has you in it!
May God give you a very, very long life so that you can continue to guide and provide information on homeopathic treatments to ignorants like us. Your style is fabulous and inimitable, so simple yet so effective. This was a wonderful article on acute prescribing and the 4 guiding principles were so nicely explained. Your “Quizzes” are another source of learning and I simply love them.
Please keep it up.
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. May you live a very long life,
in order to bless the ignorant and untrained, who need to know how to think, so that
every one attains the level of standard in homeopathy worth achieving.
HOW MANY times your Quizzes have solved the acute problems only people like me
have to thank you for a wonderful teaching not available in any books.
Once again may the all mighty God bless you for a healthy and long life.
Yours Sincerely, I mean it, Ravi
The article is super good. Elaine, besides having an excellent knowledge of homeopathy, has a way of explaining it in her writings that make it so easy to understand. She provides many examples which help to clarify all the fine points she makes. I just don’t have the words to express just how much I enjoy Elaine’s articles. I will try to remember all that she says so I can apply it. I don’t feel comfortable to try her quizzes yet but I’ve got the urge to soon try. Please pass this on to her and I appreciate her so much. Thank You Elaine and the Hpathy Ezine.
Elaine is a great writer! I am a new patient of hers and her writing is superb! Even patients can learn something, and that means she is a great writer! Keep up the good work!
Elaine I Love You. I find your articles so amazing and informative that I have to take notes…you do have a way with words…I am not a doctor, and I’ve never been to one, thanks to homeopathy and you and lots of other people like you. I treat my husband, my little girl and my family and me. Looking forward for more such articles from you. Thank you so much.
We thank u so much for the knowlegde we gain every month through the hpathy Quiz. It’s an advanced school for all new homeopaths. We encourage you to go on.

Re: “The Homeopathic Interview”
Funny and packed with knowledge! thanks for writing this Elaine.
Dear Elaine Lewis,
Your explanation of homeopathy and examples of remedies are so educational, and should help all understand.
wouldn’t it be a good idea to collate all your work in one place?
and call it ‘ eBook ‘s? Would like to offer towards its cost, as a permanent record,
after all there is only one Elaine Lewis who is capable to subscribe for the benefits of
Homeopathy. Please do consider. thanks Ravi
Re: Elaine’s interview with Robin Murphy, ND
I think this interview-article that Elaine conducted with Robin Murphy is one of the best I have ever read, extremely rich in its content. Dr Robin Murphy is a real present day homeopath free from all shackles, dogmas conventions and traditions. He is very much in tune with the times and understands today’s requirements. He offers himself as an example of ‘practicing what he preaches’. Elaine Lewis has pertinently revealed that he is 60 years old, a vegetarian, still having natural black hair and taking no drugs. All credit goes to Elaine for eliciting the maximum out of Dr. Murphy for the benefit of her readers. She richly deserves all gratitude and abundant appreciation for this marvelous interview.
🙂 You are so exceptionally good! I am going to irritate you every month now with my participation and intelligent sounding questions (pun intended).
Thank you, Elaine, for being so generous with your homeopathic knowledge; that is a distinction of genuine Homeopaths.
Re: “Today’s The Day! (Elaine Turns 100)”
Congratulations to you (and Rhus Tox of course!). Reading your articles and the quiz, in your inimitable style, month after month, has been such a learning experience for me. So a very big thank you for all the effort you put in to make homeopathy so exciting.
Great effort, great articles that remove a lot of confusion.
I keep waiting for something new from you…thank you

I am a great fan of yours. I enjouy all your write-ups in HPathy.com and have read all your articles which either you have written alone or with Mati Fuller or else.
I am a non-homeopath (not had any formal Homeopath education, am a Homeo hobyist for almost 40 years.
I have served in Indian Air force as a Tecnical person and was a specialist in Electronics and Telecommuncation and was capable of repaiingr/maintaining any electronic equipment (house-hold items or /defence/military equipment).
Along side I developed hobby in Homeopathy in my early days in service and was always helping my family / my neighbours / friendns and their families / and my Air Force unit personnel and their families through homeopathy while I was serving. Now I am an Ex-service man (Retired).
If…. I had an upportunity to study Homeopathy in college, certainely I would have appreciated a teacher/Guru like you.
I read all your Homeo-Quizzes very interestingly and admire your discussions/guide-lines/ through participants. Always, it seems to me that I am sitting in your class and attending your lectures, and you are always available to give your suggestions/support…
Love to Shana and great respect to you.]

As always, I LOVE what you have written! This time you’ve written about finding the remedy in a difficult case. Every time I visit your site or read your fun and fabulous articles in Hpathy ezine, I always learn something new.
Keep up the good work! I love homeopathy and wish I weren’t so bloomin’ old so I could become a pro but I’ll have to settle for just doing what I can. I’m working to get my children and granddaughter interested in homeopathy.
Re: Tidbits part 4–It’s About Cancer This Time
Thank you for sharing great information Elaine! This is another great article to your credit!
Re: Homeopathy: Frequently Asked Questions
Elaine, I read your FAQ article and it was exactly what I had been looking for – I just couldn’t find those specific Q & A’s in other blogs or books; the info out there is so general. I feel like I should forward your article to my old (fired) homeopath! Thank you greatly for sharing your knowledge.
Re: Tidbits 11, Everything You’re Doing Is Wrong!
Elaine, this is an awesome article. It’s everything you need to know all in one place. I’m keeping it for posterity and to give to all my moms. Thanks for the great work!
Re: Tidbits part 11: Everything You’re Doing Is Wrong!
Elaine, this is one fantastic article. Just posted the link on my fb page. You lay out clearly that when it comes to raising kids and and living our lives, we should use common sense and make smart choices that would promote a lifestyle closer to nature.
How are you? You may not remember me but we’ve had a few conversations in the past, long ago.
I just finished reading your article “Tidbits part 11”. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. I always enjoy your writing but this one was particularly good.
I offer lectures to students and adults in my community on Health, Nutrition and Homeopathy and many of the subjects you include in your article I also discuss. And since your article is so in-depth, I will be using some of the stats and points that I did not already have. Thank you for helping me inform my attendees.
I’ve also shared your article on Facebook.
Thank you again for all the great work that you have done and continue to do in the community.

Dear Elaine – I would like to celebrate along with you for 10 years of doing this marvelous Quiz. I’m sure thousands of people have learned from the twosome: Shana and Elaine. CONGRATULATIONS!
Re: Questions Patients Ask-4
Brilliant – can we have more of these please. Give Elaine my thumbs up – excellent and also written in a way a lay-man can understand.
Re: Questions Patients Ask-6
I can’t thank you enough for your articles. I’ve studied homeopathy for a number of years, but never fail to learn (and unlearn my bad habits) from your writings. I’m especially grateful for you comments about the importance of acute prescribing. Relieving people of their pain quickly and gently is the best introduction to homeopathy – often the only one. Many thanks from an ardent fan.
Re: Tidbits part 12: More Stuff You’re Doing Wrong…
Uno mas de los preciosos y muy orientadores articulos de la Dra. Elaine, Se le percibe bien informada y con una gran capacidad de trasmitir los conocimientos. Siempre al ver la revista, busco sus artículos primeramente. Felicitaciones.
Re: Tidbits part 12: More Stuff You’re Doing Wrong…
Thank you Elaine, for your wonderful passion for human beings’ health and well-being. I appreciate the way you write about the ever expanding control the pharmaceutical companies are having on doctors and their patients globally. People are being indoctrinated with the so-called ‘science’ of vaccination, and medical drugs being the ‘only’ way to health.
Thank you for flying the flag of truth and educating people about more healthy choices!

I enjoyed it immensely along with your very good illustrations of cartoon characters! Have to look at the clips on them still. :)This is what you were working on!You also quoted some of my very faves – Catherine Coulter and Philip Bailey -love their stuff!You did a great job!Congrats!Lynda 🙂
I am a Traditional Naturopath trying to introduce Homeopathy into my Practice.
I have read many of your Articles at HPathy – and other Homeopathic sites / Forums
You have become familiar to me before we have become virtual friends.
Mutual friends say very nice things about you – like being humble – and talented as a Practitioner.
I thought you should know.
Re: “Myths About Modern Medicine”
Elaine, the “Myths About Modern Medicine” — oh my gosh. Hope agents don’t show up at your doorstep! lol That was like “60 Minutes” only way more interesting, and with “Simpsons” graphics! (Love the scientist guy–Prof. Frinck!)
Elaine, I have re-read your ‘FAQ’ article on your hpathy.com website and the article titled ‘Before Starting Homeopathy, Read This’ and I must let you know how very informative, helpful, engaging and humorous they are! It’s great education!
Subject: Re: Online consultation
Hi Elaine the good news is: increased 1 kg weight in the last 10 days and the hands look visibly pinker so Hb has increased. Previously they looked yellow. So I think we are on the right track. You nailed it.
Great!!! Thanks. You are brilliant.
you taught us a really interesting lesson in the October quiz and it certainly means a big encouragement for me. Last Friday I had an acute case exactly very similar to your quiz case except that the problem was in the respiratory system. And dosing of remedy was the same, too. At the beginning Ars. C30 4 x per hour by solution in water, after which the child vomited large amount of mucus. She started dancing with joy that she is o.k.
After a short time symptoms returned. So I had to recommend the same remedy in potency C200 and this really worked. Ironically, we know about this process, but I do not know why we rather frequently change remedies and therefore we risk that the case becomes unnecessarily entangled. I was reticent to administer Arsenicum because the little girl wanted ice and ice water, since I know that an Arsenicum case desires little sips of hot drinks. But now I hunted down in the Repertory and I learned that I have a big gap in my knowledges. Apparently I was confused with the fact that the warm ameliorates, which is not the same as the desire for ice water and ice, that in turn aggravates the case. My current case had exactly the same symptoms and if you didn’t disclose results of your quiz, I´d probably not have prescribed Arsenicum because of ice water , and if so, obviously, I would probably not have gone on to the higher potency either. I ´m writing mainly due to the fact that I am grateful for the opportunity to compete in solving your quizzes in order to broaden my homeopathic horizon. Thank you very much. Yours faithfully, Miroslav
Elaine, have you considered writing all these beautiful articles of yours into a book? You have a very unique communicability (I hope I am using the word correctly) and you make the reader understand in a minute what you are saying. This is charisma.
I have many books from big old guns of homeopathy and they write so boring and so difficult to understand that it is a miracle if I finish the book. I include Hahnemann among them. If it weren’t for you, I would never have understood major principles mentioned in the Organon.
Simplicity to the point is a gift. And most homeopathic writers lack this. I would definitely buy your book!
Re: “How To Make Your Own Remedy”
December 10, 2014
I couldn’t refrain from commenting. Exceptionally well written!
This is Monisha. I think of u everyday. So today when the scale showed 2.5 kg increase in weight I said I must thank u. I really feel better have not required another dose of Arsenicum again. My husband who was skeptical initially when I consulted u has conveyed his thanks. He said what a doctor to have cured u with poisons, first spider venom then snake venom and last arsenic. He does not understand homeopathy.
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
God bless wonderful souls like you.
Enjoying the articles as always, but always go for yours first. 🙂 Have a wonderful Christmas!
Thank you for your friendship and advice over the past year. I hope the coming festive season gives you and Shana great cheer.
You have helped me with my Homoeopathy; I am grateful for this.Regards, Wayne Butcher
Its seems like Nitric acid worked well. I had two doses of it. My toothache is almost disappeared today. I will wait if it returns back tomorrow. If so, I will repeat it again.
It was so painful, have much relief now. Thank you so much being my Homeopath. I am blessed!
Elaine, my dog’s energy is improving too. When she leaks, she also drinks more water. Today is her first day with no leaking since we started. She drinks normally and she is much happier. If she continues that way, I will start after a week to reduce the dosing from Sepia 6C 4 times a day to 3 times a day. The homeopathy is really working amazingly, but the problem is that you cannot find the homeopath that can give you the real instructions how to use it. That was my problem here and I believe this is the problem for many patients throughout the world. I was searching for more then a month until I found your site, and I consider myself the lucky one.

Re: Tidbits 27–Lies Your Doctor Tells
Elaine, I posted it on Twitter and Facebook and I will continue to share this article. It was stellar. Congratuations! You need to write for alternative publications and get paid for it. Why not freelance?
Elaine, your articles are never about your success stories or your greatness,rather they are a guide and a text book of homeopathy,which makes it easy for others to understand and find their problems in the articles written.Also,you are an excellent teacher and a lovely person.–Shandana
Your quizzes are so fun, Elaine. Keep up the good work.
Nobody helped me like you did. I will be grateful to you for rest of my life.
Elaine, The articles you and Mati Fuller wrote together were very interesting, well written and full of information. I have kind of gotten addicted reading your articles.–Shandana
I have been reading yours and Mati Fuller’s very interesting articles. They just make a person understand remedies in such an easy and hilarious way.
I came across you Elaine in the Homeopathy papers when I was researching Homeopathy, you explain everything so clearly (something I’ve rarely come across with Homeopathy – I’ve only ever experienced the ‘cloak and dagger’ attitude with homeopaths or information that just seems too complex to understand). You are a breath of fresh air and as I started reading more of what you have written, things I haven’t understood before, all seemed clear and plain to understand. I’ve never come across any homeopath like you before and I mean that in a positive way.

People who read your column Elaine are very lucky! They get straight forward, easy to understand answers to important questions. You’ve done it again here. These are questions that most people won’t find answered in any one book, except perhaps the Organon, which is not an easy read. Clarity, Clarity, Clarity and Succinctiness and Relevance. That’s your column!

I’m a big fan of your remedy descriptions and the way you use well known characters and situations to illustrate remedies..– Neil
