INFO ABOUT HOMEOPATHY
Founded upon the principle “like cures like” by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the early 19th century, homeopathy works to promote optimal health for the entire Individual on all levels: physically, mentally and emotionally. Homeopathy is essentially an energy medicine. Based upon the premise that all disease is the result of some derangement or weakness of our vital force, which by its very existence is energy itself and not substance. Therefore, the only way to bring about a true and lasting cure for our maladies is to introduce a remedy into our organism, which exists on the identical plane and contains those same properties as that vital force which has become compromised.
Embracing those very same principles of nature and of natural healing found in other ancient therapeutics, homeopathy seeks to re-establish both balance and harmony to an individual’s health through the administration of specifically designed remedies. The source of these remedies are derived from all naturally occurring substances. Through scientifically formulated methods, the preparation of these remedies are designed to ensure that they will resonate and stimulate the core of the weakened life force thus enabling it to become strengthened once again and allow the healing process to occur organically from within.
Since the vital force “knows” the precise nature of its own weakness and the accompanying symptoms, which manifest and result from that derangement, once strengthened with homeopathic remedies only the vital force itself can initiate and bring about a speedy return to complete health on all levels.
For over two centuries homeopathic medical treatment has brought about cures for millions of people world wide in a rapid, gentle and permanent way. Until the 1920’s it accounted for approximately 25 percent of all medicine practiced in the United States. Its renowned use has been long acknowledged throughout the world as a major medical therapeutic. The Royal family uses homeopathic medicine for all their members as well as many nationally recognized celebrities.
Mahatma Gandhi stated that “…homeopathy cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment.” Additionally, Dr. Charles Frederick Menninger, founder of the Menninger Clinic, declared that, “homeopathy is wholly capable of satisfying the therapeutic demands of this age better than any other system or school of medicine.”
The resurgence of homeopathy in the last decade in the United States is a testimonial to both the historical efficacy of this renowned medical therapeutic as well as the desire of the American people to obtain the best available treatment for themselves as whole beings and on all levels.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT
Homeopathy is an individualized, precise science developed over two hundred years ago and has helped millions of people experience relief and cure of their maladies. Homeopathy works with the same universal principles of healing found in all other ancient therapeutic systems.
As part of your homeopathic treatment, your organism will need to purge itself of imbalances, toxins, and accumulated medical suppressions that it has been subjected to over the years. Your vital force or life force is the the energy which is stimulated by the homeopathic remedy. This healthier vital force in turn is the agent which “knows” what needs to be corrected in your organism and thus promotes the cure from within.
WHAT TO TELL a HOMEOPATH
The most important tool a homeopath has to work with is clear and objective observation. When you are calling for yourself or another adult or child, the quality of your impartial observations regarding the reporting of symptoms are crucial in allowing the practitioner to fully comprehend the exact nature of the problem.
Try not to exaggerate the symptoms. Don’t guess what the symptom is, e.g.; if there is temperature don’t say it feels like 104 degrees, use a thermometer. In all instances precision and accuracy will be helpful, where as drama, hysteria and self diagnoses will always serve as obstacles to treatment.
In cases of serious trauma, where there is loss of consciousness, hemorrhage, persistent pain, apparent fracture, respiratory or cardiovascular involvement, choking, or deep wounds, always and immediately seek conventional medical attention from your private care physician or hospital emergency room. If in doubt err on the side of caution and seek emergency medical treatment and at least get a medical diagnosis of the problem. In general, accurate medical diagnoses are helpful to the practitioner under all circumstances.
In situations where emergency care is clearly not required, call your practitioner and report the nature of the injury or symptom. Explain clearly and without a lot of editorial commentary, where it is located, how it occurred, the quality and severity of the patient’s pain or experience, any factors that might make the condition better or worse, and any other information pertinent to the event. Allow time for the practitioner to record, assess, and ask the necessary and relevant questions regarding the event.
