What is Homeopathy and How Does It Work?

I get asked all the time, "...how is it those little pills that you give, that taste sweet, can make a person feel so much better that quickly and take away so much pain?" Well, those little pills are homeopathic remedies!

They can unlock amazing results in the human body, restore balance to the human condition, and help your body heal gently, rapidly and permanently. Homeopathy was founded by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843).

He is called the Father of Experimental Pharmacology because he was the first physician to prepare medicines in a specific way; proving them on healthy human beings, to determine how the medicines acted to cure diseases. In a healthy person when a large dose of a substance is administered, whether it be chemical, plant, mineral, or animal, produces a set of symptoms you may then dilute the material down and treat those same symptoms in a sick person.

In the 1700's cinchona bark was used to treat malaria. Dr. Hahnemann was healthy at the time and decided to eat the cinchona bark to see the effects on a healthy person and developed all the symptoms of malaria. He returned to his normal, healthy state once he stopped eating the cinchona bark.

Being an out of the box thinker, this led him to believe that if the bark produced symptoms in a healthy person, a small dose might cure a sick person by waking up the bodies ability to fight off the illness. So, in a sense, the remedy has the same signature as the problems the patient is experiencing, and it wakes up or reminds, your body to fix those symptoms.

To give an example, last week my kids came down with a nasty respiratory infection. The poor little things were sick; Lilly would cough so hard she would vomit. She was lethargic and just not her usual, jubilant self. It would break my heart when she would go into a barking cough and start to cry because it hurt so bad.

So, after lecturing for 8 hours, I picked her up and took her to the office where I treated her and checked to see what homeopathic remedy would be best for her. What came up fit her symptoms perfectly!

We gave her the remedy, and she was back to herself, she still coughed, but she no longer screamed in pain and was completely back to normal within a couple of days. Another quick example, a few months back TJ took a tumble, as toddlers often do. Erin and I were standing in the kitchen and heard the fall. We stood there holding our combined breaths hoping it wasn’t that bad of a fall, then we heard it.

I ran around the corner and saw him on his hands and knees crying, luckily, he just busted open his lip on his two new teeth, but the blood was dripping from his mouth. I scooped him up and ran to the homeopathy kit I had at the house and gave him the remedy for running blood.

Immediately the tears and the blood stopped. No stitches, no painkillers, no swelling.

Homeopathy has completely changed the way I practice. I have seen it, both personally and professionally, fix so many different problems that I don’t think that I could practice or raise children without homeopathy.
