Read about Classical Homeopathy

Classical homeopathic medicine is used in its highest form is the most powerful and comprehensive system of medicine known today. It can treat a wide variety of ailments and disease at their root or origin in the body. Homepathy effects immune functions as well as the physical, mental, and emotional realms of the person. When applied correctly, it can lead to cures and remission of diseases known to have no modern cure.

Homepathy is a two-hundred year old system of medicine which began in Germany, discovered by Samuel Hahnemann, M.D. It spread throughout Europe and later, in the early 1800's to the United States. The successful treatment of epidemics such as cholera and yellow fever brought the popularity of homeopathic medicine to the United States. One quarter of all physicians were practicing homepaths. There were 110 homeopathic hospitals and 22 homeopathic medical schools. Homeopathy fell in decline because of the Flexnor Report of 1918, combined with the advent of pharmaceuticals.

The basic principles of classical homeopathy have remained unchanged through two-hundred years of scientific research and clinical observation. Laws of healing and disease are utilized in clinical practice with each patient. With correct prescribing, susceptibility to disease can be eradicated. In addition, with successful treatment, one can obtain a higher state of consciousness, emotional well-being, and physical vitality. These changes are often rapid, gentle and permanent.

Classical homeopathy is a deep and challenging system of therapeutics that depends on fully understanding multifaceted, multi-layered, and magnificently complex human beings. Homepathy is more than the sophisticated analysis of an infinite array of clinical signs and symptoms. The mortal beings who sit before us are not simply the sum total of their symptoms. There is something more - a core, or soul, that energizes the body and manifests the adaptive symptoms with intelligence and purpose.

If we are to learn more about the possibilities of homeopathy, we must open our hearts and minds and allow the spirit of inner healing to grow within ourselves.
