I Love Homeopathy! (It’s Only Natural!)
Welcome to my website!
There is a treasure chest full of information in the links above. There are cases with before-and-after pictures, information about nutritional healing, about how to use your homeopathy emergency kit, and so much more; please have a look!
So, first we should know how to pronounce it:
It’s a Greek word that simply means “Like cures like”. Literally, “homeo” means “same”, “pathy” means “disease”; so, “same disease”. The medicine is the same as the disease–or very similar to it; “like cures like”. It may not make any sense to you right now, but give me a chance.
A Hair Of The Dog That Bit You
Everyone’s heard that phrase. “How about a hair of the dog that bit you?” It’s what you say to someone who’s had too much to “drink” and now he’s got a headache–what we call a “hang-over”. It means, “Here, take a small sip of the liquor you drank and your headache will go away.”
Here’s another one: “What that person needs a taste of his own medicine!” Or, here’s another one, “We have to fight fire with fire!”
These are all examples of “like cures like”, but it took Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1810, to put this folklore concept into an actual science with medicines that we refer to as homeopathic remedies; or just simply, “remedies”.
Why should we embrace a 200 year old obscure healing art that most people have never heard of, when we can avail ourselves of “Modern Medicine”? Wouldn’t that be better? Well first of all, homeopathy wasn’t always obscure; and secondly, to the extent that it is, we can thank Big Pharma’s single-minded obsession of silencing all treatments that it doesn’t personally own! You know, even Dr. Benjamin Rush, George Washington’s doctor and signer of the Declaration of Independence, warned that if medical freedom wasn’t written into the Constitution… well, here it is:
“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come
when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict
the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to
And, well, here we are! Too bad no one listened. Anyway, the fact is, homeopathic remedies work–miraculously–and without the harmful side effects of drugs! In fact, I refer to them as the “real medicine” because they do what drugs claim to do but very often don’t!
People usually find out about homeopathy quite by accident.
Maybe it’s a very distressing cough, and nothing in the drugstore is working, so now the patient is in the health food store. There sits a homeopathic dropper bottle in the vitamin aisle labeled simply:
Hoping against hope, “Cough” is purchased, and then comes the shocking result!
“Why doesn’t my doctor know about this?”
This actually happened to me! My daughter, Shana, had a horrendous cough that she picked up at a “water park” when she was 8 years old. In desperation, I took her to a homeopath after this had gone on too long–over a month! The next day, incredibly, to my amazement, the cough was noticeably better; but I have to confess: I had so little faith in homeopathy that after I gave the first dose, I threw the bottle away! I know it sounds crazy, but I guess I had gotten so used to things failing; but, at some point on day-2, it started to dawn on me that she was coughing much less! Oh my gosh! A frantic search ensued for the remedy! I was desperately rummaging through the trash and incredibly, I found it in the waste paper basket in the bathroom; I breathed a huge sigh of relief! Yes, Shana recovered completely!
The Law Of Similars
Apparently “likes” really are cured by “likes”! Why don’t “opposites” cure? That’s what your doctor believes. It seems so logical, but once I explain it to you, you will say, “Oh, of course!” And here is the explanation: We are not inanimate objects!
Yes, that’s it.
Why is that such a revelation? Because all your Pharma drugs are predicated on the assumption that we ARE– that humans will accept a drug passively and allow it to work. I’m sure that’s what you think too. But that is not what happens! Your body is actually alive, a living system that adjusts and readjusts to all in-coming impressions! If you take an antacid, like Tums, for acid indigestion, your body doesn’t say, “Oh boy, Tums to the rescue!” No, it says, “What has wiped out all of my precious stomach acid?! Now I have to put it all back!”
So, as soon as the drug wears off, you’re right back where you started from, and the Tums have to be repeated!
The drug is perceived as some alien force that does not belong in the body! This is why drugs need constant repetition, because the body perceives them as a threat and fights them off!
We call this phenomenon “rebound”, it’s what happens when the illness returns, or “rebounds”, after the body has mounted a defense against the drug!
Whatever you do to the body, it attempts to do the opposite in an attempt to restore “balance”. Your body is always working to establish balance! “Homeostasis”, as it’s called. If you send a drug in to treat stomach acid, your body is just going to respond by making more acid! Clearly, the drug is prolonging this case! “Doctor, the pain is back!” No problem, says the doctor, just take your antacid more often! Well, the same scenario repeats itself and you can imagine that it’s not going to end well!
Have you ever eaten in a Chinese Restaurant? I love Chinese food, but, be on the look-out for the hot mustard, is all I gotta say! Have you ever unknowingly taken too big a bite out of the hot mustard? OMG! You grab the ice water! You feel relief for the moment–until you swallow it! Then your mouth starts burning again with a vengeance! Why is this happening? Why doesn’t the ice water give lasting relief? Because the impression of cold made your mouth heat up to restore balance! Are you getting it now?
I had my first lesson in this phenomenon called “rebound” when I was maybe 5 years old. I was at a back-yard cook-out. I saw a metal pan filled with hot dogs and for some reason I decided to pick the pan up. How was I to know that anything made of metal sitting on a grill was bound to be hot? I dropped it right away like a hot potato and ran into the house, into the bathroom, filled up the sink with cold water and plunged my hands into! Ahh…. blessed relief!!!!
I thought I’d be able to take my hands out and go back to the party, but no! Doing so made the burn come back even worse! Every time I tried lifting my hands out of the water, the burn would come back! I was literally tied to the bathroom sink! After a while my father got worried and came looking for me and found me with my hands plunged into cold water. This was my first experience with opposites not curing–in fact, making things worse!
Your body is ALWAYS striving for balance! Burn leads to cold water which leads to burn which leads to cold water–burn–cold water–burn–cold water…this is a never-ending cycle! How do you break out of it? You can’t!
This is the prototype for all of standard medicine!
The clueless doctor never gets the message! He keeps saying, “Let’s give the drug again!” What is he setting in motion here? Drug dependence!
Doctors, take note: The body self-adjusts to all impressions!
This is the conundrum of modern medicine–that you can’t give an “anti” drug without making the patient drug-dependent!
All drugs palliate in the beginning and aggravate in the end, leading to repeated doses and the beginning of addiction!
Indeed, you CAN’T stop the drug, because “rebound” becomes intolerable as it gets worse every time!
Eventually “tolerance” sets in, meaning that your body has so compensated for the drug, so risen to the occasion, so to speak, that it no longer experiences the drug effects at all; so, higher and higher potencies of the drug are needed to make your body feel it again; ultimately, you’re in the untenable position where the drug runs out of potencies! If a drug goes beyond a certain strength, it will kill you; so it has to stop somewhere. Then what?
There is no limit to the body’s capacity to “rebound”! Consequently, in the war between the drug’s symptom-suppressing capacity and the body’s “rebound” capacity, the drug always loses; and there you are, with nothing for your acid stomach or your burn or any other complaint, and to add insult to injury, the complaint is now worse than it was at the beginning!
Mistakes Were Made!
Modern Medicine’s “symptom-suppressing obsession”–people are OK with that, since they believe that symptoms are the heart of the problem and deserve to be suppressed, and I know it seems like that is the case; but actually, what we call “symptoms” is actually the way the body DEALS with a disease for your benefit! “Cause and effect”. Orthodox Medicine deals with effects (symptoms) and hasn’t much use for causes!
By aiming drugs at “effects”, Orthodox Medicine attempts to make the body do something that it would never do on its own; that’s because the doctor doesn’t see that the diarrhea, for example, is the “effect” of a pathogen being present in the intestine. The diarrhea, is a life-saving mechanism the body initiates to eliminate the pathogen. If the doctor introduces a drug to stop the diarrhea, this is going to make the immune system very angry! It knows what it’s supposed to do! It’s going to fight the drug every step of the way, because the drug is putting your life at risk by allowing the pathogen to stay there!
It’s like driving your car with the emergency brake on, or going 60 m.p.h. in 2nd gear–your car wasn’t built to do that, it’s unnatural, it would never do that on its own because it actually jeopardizes the life of your car, you would have to use force to make your car drive in that way! When your doctor uses “force” to stop diarrhea, he is going against your body’s natural tendencies and putting your life in jeopardy in the process!
Homeopaths understand that symptoms are uncomfortable and no one wants to have them; but, we also understand that symptoms are a response to an underlying CAUSE, and therefore, inevitable!
Only one entity can stop a symptom–and it’s not a doctor and it’s not a drug! It’s the immune system itself! The immune system is responsible for it, and it alone can make it stop!
So the question is, how do we get the immune system to VOLUNTARILY stop what it, itself, has started? We have to somehow make it believe that the cause is gone! If the cause is gone, there’s no longer any need for the symptom, right? How do we make the immune system believe that? That is the question!
Manipulate The Immune System! Create A False Flag!
That’s the answer! Let’s use sneezing for an example, since that’s what I’m doing right now! Now, we know that the immune system is choosing to have a sneezing fit all by itself, for whatever reason; and we have to make it believe that there is already too much sneezing, a sneezing “imbalance”, if you will, which it will have to correct because it’s always striving for balance!
Have you ever taken a substance that makes you sneeze? What about red pepper? Or black pepper? That’s the idea, and yes, we have remedies made out of pepper! Why does that work to stop sneezing? Because, knowing that the body always does the OPPOSITE…right? To restore balance? If you give a remedy that “sneezes”, your body will be forced to compensate, by doing the opposite, by stopping the sneezing! “Too much sneezing here, stop the sneezing, call it off!!!” Do you see what I mean? The body abhors an imbalance!
“Oh, I get it now!”
See? I knew you would! You can thank Samuel Hahnemann for that, in 1810; he thought of it!
What something can cause, it can cure in small doses!
Right? Isn’t that exactly what “A hair of the dog that bit you” is? A very small dose? Why just a hair? How many hairs on a dog’s body? Ten thousand? I don’t know, I’m just guessing. So, one drop of “dog hair” in 10,000 drops of water? They say our homeopathic doses are ridiculously small! But where did this folklore — a hair of the dog — come from? Why did someone say that? It means that way back in time, someone knew a little something about “nano” dosing! And this is a typical homeopathic dose, by the way—one in 10,000 (a potency we call 10M). This is a basic principle of healing that every ancient culture knew about!
