Homeopathy is a system of energetic medicine that involves treating the individual with highly diluted and specially prepared substances or “remedies” which enhance and catalyze the body’s natural ability to heal.
Certain roots of homeopathic principles can be noted in the classical teachings of Hippocrates and later in the work of Paracelsus. Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician of the late 18th century, founded the formal system of practice used today. Homeopathy spread quickly in the 19th century but was largely eclipsed in the 20th, especially in the US, by the dominance of a technological and mechanistic approach to illness, establishing the standard medical system we have today.
Homeopathy is based on the principle that you can treat like with like: a substance that causes symptoms when taken in larger doses can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms. For example, drinking too much coffee can cause insomnia and make one feel physically and mentally restless. However, when prepared as a homeopathic medicine, it can help people with insomnia.
The homeopathic approach takes into account all of a person’s symptoms and views them as part of a whole. We do not look at only isolated symptoms or administer one-size-fits-all medications. Homeopaths do not diagnose or treat disease per se. Homeopathic ‘remedies’ are chosen that best correspond to the person’s unique set of symptoms from a holistic perspective. Homeopathic practitioners are skilled in case-taking and in their knowledge of the remedies.
Homeopathic medicines, called ‘remedies,’ are prepared by specialty pharmacies utilizing a highly refined process of dilution and succussion (a specific form of vigorous shaking). These micro-dilutions make the original substance highly efficacious and non-toxic. The practice of homeopathy is based on over two hundred years of established clinical experience, now being substantiated by a growing body of scientific evidence.
Homeopathy can address a very wide range of both acute and chronic health concerns. It is also a powerful tool for healing deep emotional traumas and genetic predispositions, allowing for transformation and self-realization.
Your constitution is something you were born with. However, as you live life, there are often layers of trauma, illness, or psychological habits that are on top of your constitution.
We store these energetic patterns in our bodies. Homeopathy is a powerful tool to dissolve these patterns. A constitutional Homeopathic remedy takes into consideration all of this with its detailed and thorough questioning during our visit.
Physically I look at aspects like your body build and hair color, your weak organs that tend to have imbalances, and your family history. With the 3-hour interview, I hear your life story and see your personality, your fears, aspirations challenges, and joys. So in other words I take into consideration the whole of you and get to know you as a fellow human being. I put this all together and match it with a Homeopathic remedy that acts as a catalyst for healing on all levels of being.
This is where an experienced Homeopath can work with you to unwind those layers, getting to the uninhibited, healthy, best version of yourself. I especially love working with people who have worked on their personal growth but feel stuck, like they know the issues but their behavior and feelings aren't congruent with that knowledge.
A well-prescribed remedy or series of remedies helps you to be free from these old inhibiting ways of being, feeling, and operating. Adding coaching enhances Homeopathy and is a powerful way to gain insight, tools, and distinctions around all aspects of your life and health.
