The word “homeopathy” comes from the Greek words homeo = similar and pathos = suffering. It means: “similar suffering”. Homeopathy has been around for more than 200 years, and was discovered by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician. It is a system of medicine which treats disease by the use of natural substances that are administered in a powerfully diluted form that work brilliantly and without harm.
Homeopathy first developed popularity in Europe and the United States because of its astounding success in treating people suffering from various infectious epidemics in the 19th century such as cholera, typhoid, influenza, and scarlet fever. In North America, homeopathy continued to be widely practiced during the 19th century, as many doctors practiced homeopathy as well as conventional medicine. At the turn of the century, there were 22 homeopathic medical colleges and more than 100 homeopathic hospitals in the United States. They were the leading health treatment. Many of America’s cultural elite were homeopathy’s strongest advocates. However, when the cartel consisting of Rockefeller, Morgan, and Carnegie supported drugs and funded their own kind of medical schools, they basically got the homeopathic schools shut down. Sadly, this has led to the present trend of things in the health care system and food industry where health is deteriorating.
Why Homeopathy Works
Concept of Vital Force and disease
We all have that spirit force in us that keeps us alive or dead. The energetic force inherent in our body is called the vital force. It is an energy field that integrates the mental, emotional and physical planes. If one plane is stimulated, it can affect the other two planes. Hahnemann believed that it is precisely this energy/vital force, which keeps each individual in line. When ones vital force gets sick, it manifests in the individual. Addressing the totality of symptoms of a patient can cure the sick vital force and in the process curing the sick person. The diseased vital force and the symptoms of the disease are the same. Since diseases are spirit-like, one will need spirit-like medicine to be healed. The goal of homeopathic treatment is to support the Vital Force to throw off the dis-ease.
The use of small doses in homeopathic medicine is akin to the field of Nanopharmacology (Nano derives from Latin which means dwarf; Nanotechnology or nanosciences which explore the use of extremely small technologies or processes, at least one - billionth of a unit suggesting very small and very powerful). More than 200 years of experience have shown that the more a substance undergoes dilution with vigorous shaking, the more powerful the medicine becomes, the longer it acts, and fewer doses are generally needed. Homeopathic solutions, especially in more highly diluted remedies, have very little of the original active agent in the remedies, yet achieve incredibly powerful results.
Homeopathic medicines that do not match the patient’s symptoms will generate no effect. However, when there is a match, the patient experiences significant improvement in overall health.
