Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine created in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, (above) based on his doctrine of like cures like (similia similibus curentur), a claim that a substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people would cure similar symptoms in sick people.
So if a particular ingredient causes a series of symptoms in a healthy individual, then a dilution of the SAME ingredient can treat a sick person with the SAME symptoms. Below are some illustrations of how the dilutions are reached:
These mixtures can be so dilute that there is not a molecule left of the original substance, only the ENERGY!
The marvelous thing about the dilutions – the more dilutes the mixture is, the more powerful the effect! Also, our bodies use ONLY what is needed, and disregards the rest!
Homeopathic remedies have come a long way since Hahnemann developed the concept back in the day. The big advancements have been the combining of different remedies in a combination of dilutions (strengths) which makes the remedy more effective and applicable to more situation.
Mixtures of the SAME remedy at DIFFERENT dilutions are called CHORDS; DIFFERENT remedies at the SAME dilution are called BURGI groups. This offers a wide range of possibilities for finding an exacting a remedy for a particular set of symptoms!
Although we (A View To Your Health) have been aware and knowledgeable of homeopathics for many years, it has only been recently that we have started using them again in our practice. The main reason for this is their effectiveness AND lower costs. This offers another option set for treatments that help our clients with financial concerns!
The current homeopathic remedies that we offer are by Seroyal, a Canadian-based company that offers a unique blend of homeopathics with their UNDA numbered compounds. Really good stuff! Their brands are Genestra Brands, Pharmax, Wobenzyme, and UNDA.
