Homeopathy? Homeopathy is a natural medicine first conceived more than two centuries ago in Germany by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. It is a healing philosophy which views the person as a connected being, mentally, emotionally,physically, and spiritually not as a diagnosis or collection of symptoms. Each patient is unique and manifests illness in a unique way. If 5 people would be visiting their primary health care physician for a flu, they would all receive the same medicine. However, if 5 people would be visiting their homeopath they all would receive a homeopathic remedy based on their individual needs. One person might be very restless and thirsty in their illness, while another person might want to be left alone and be thirstless.   Remedies Homeopathic remedies are made from anything we find in nature- plants, animals, minerals, (animal) milks and many other substances. Hahnemann found out that substances in large amounts caused symptoms in a healthy person, but very small or minute doses of a substance actually healed a sick person. The usual example given is the remedy Allium Cepa, made from the red onion, which treats hay fever with runny nose, itchy, and watery eyes. These are the very symptoms it would cause when cutting an onion in the kitchen. Remedies act as a catalyst by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanism. There are thousands of provings (testing of the substances) of the medicines on healthy humans to gain  understanding about what symptoms it could heal in the sick. There are many clinical studies showing it works.   Prescribing  The focus of the homeopath is to use the most rapid, gentle and permanent method, meaning the least suffering for the patient. Healing occurs differently in every person and many factors have to be taking into consideration. However in acute situations healing can occur in moments but in chronic diseases it will take some time to get back to health.
