What do they all have in common?
Answer: The belief that the body has a natural ability to heal itself and based on that belief all of them have used Homeopathy.
In the late 1700’s a German MD- Dr. Samuel Hahnemann developed a method of healing called Homeopathy. It works by utilizing tiny diluted doses of all natural substances designed to trigger your body’s innate ability to heal itself.
In Oriental Medicine life energy is called Chi. Indian Philosophy calls it Prana. Homeopaths or people who practice Homeopathy call the spark of life that animates us-the Vital Force. The medicines or remedies used in Homeopathy signal our Vital Force to begin healing and rebalancing itself.
“Like cures like”
A main principle of homeopathy is that“Like cures Like”. Homeopathy matches the symptoms of the person with the symptom picture of the remedy. An example of this is insomnia-perhaps a person has drunk too many stimulating beverages…by bedtime they feel anxious and jacked up. It is impossible for their mind to stop thinking.
The Homeopathic remedy Coffea is made from coffee beans. Like all the remedies the material dose of coffee beans has been diluted so many times that there is nothing left but the energetic blue print of coffee in the remedy Coffea. If you need help sleeping because your mind is too active the homeopathic remedy Coffea actually helps you calm down and have a good sleep.
Imagine the experience of getting stung by a bee. Ouch! It’s painful. The place where you got stung is hot, red, swollen and itches. Apis Mellifica the remedy made from honey bees relieves conditions that have these same symptoms.

At home it’s used primarily for acute care. The most common acute conditions that homeopathy works well for are: allergies, ear infections, colds, coughs, flu, stress, strains and sprains, teething, muscle and arthritic aches and pains.
Professionally trained homeopaths also practice “Constitutional Homeopathy” to determine which remedy will be of the most benefit. Constitutional Homeopathy is used for moodswing, anxiety, sense of loneliness or not feeling like you belong, irritability, anger and tantrums in children.
