Classical Homœopathy

What is Homœopathy ‎(5 Mins)‎

What is Homœopathy?

Homœopathy is finding a substance that would cause a bunch of symptoms in a healthy person and giving a small dose of that to a person that is sick that way to make them begin healing. It works like a little alcohol for a hangover, but in every kind of pathology, not just hangovers.

It is different from Allopathic medicine that overrides the natural healing mechanisms by removing the symptom (like anti-inflammatories will take away the inflammation and therefore the pain for a while, but it will come back since you are not healing the reason that the inflammation developed in the first place).

So why the tiny doses?

If you are giving a substance that can cause illness in a healthy person, you want to give the smallest effective dose. So when Dr. Samuel Hahnemann was testing for the smallest effective dose he discovered an odd phenomenon: if you dilute and then shake or hit the diluted substance many times it makes it more healing instead of less powerful. We are just now beginning to understand why that is so because we now have some technology to measure that. (see research on nanoparticles in the listings below)


Is is scientific?

Yes. When Dr. Samuel Hahnemann observed that the cure killed the patient faster than the disease in his time, he began to research how people get sick and how they cure. From then on he did the first double blind tests that have been recorded to my knowledge.

Drug tests (known as "provings" in homeopathy) and Clinical tests have continued to go on over the last 220 years and the books that record these findings (the Repertories and the Materia Medicas) have continued to evolve over the centuries to reflect the new findings.(see below for links to thousands of research papers).


Is Homeopathy safe?

Since most Homeopaths use very diluted substances, there are no undesirable or side effects of the medicines and no toxicity, so yes they are very safe.

These diluted substances are sometimes accused of being placebos because they are prepared in very high dilutions, but since they work on all living organisms including infants, plants, animals this argument doesn't hold. It is also important to note that the sun and music are elements that have a therapeutic impact on us and important to realize that all active agents are not purely chemical.

Readers interested in the clinical evidence can access the CORE-HOM database of clinical research in homeopathy free of charge (www.carstens-stiftung.de/core-hom). It includes 1117 clinical trials of homeopathy, of which about 300 are randomized controlled trials.
