Introduction to Homeopathic Remedies
Homeopathic treatment is given through small tasteless sugar pellets. These pellets are soaked the specially prepared essence plants, minerals and animal products. They are called remedies. They are specially treated in a pharmacy so that they are much more subtle in their effect than the traditional medicines that they replace. Because of the way they are prepared, they cause no side effects or addictions.
Because the remedies that we use for treatment natural and subtle, you react to remedies in a natural way. You are not forced to heal or and your body chemistry is not tricked. Healing follows natural laws. I understand your progress by observing the unfolding of a totally natural process.
Practical Questions Concerning Remedies and Medications
Are homeopathic remedies safe?
Homeopathic remedies are a unique, potentized energy medicine, drawn from the plant, mineral and animal worlds. They work by gently boosting the natural energy of the body, and are very safe, even for the elderly, pregnant and sensitive patients. There is no danger of addiction or toxicity.
Can I continue my medications when I start homeopathic treatment?
Homeopathic remedies do not interfere with other medications. However, after the well-chosen remedy begins working, most people find that they can decrease their medications and in many cases eliminate them. For medicines which are necessary for your health, this should be done with your doctor’s cooperation.
What will interfere with homeopathic treatment?
Drugs that strongly suppress the natural functions of the body will interfere with remedies that are meant to restore those functions. Thus steroids and other immunosuppressants will interfere.
Camphor, some dental treatments, coffee (both decaf and regular coffee if you are not used to them) may interfere because of their strong odor. Strong shocks, either emotional or physical can stop a remedy from working. So, surgeries, car accidents and death of a loved one can be important factors in stopping the effect of treatment.
Will I need to change my diet?
Only if you normally eat a substance that is toxic or irritating to your system would you need to change your diet.
Can diabetics use homeopathic sugar pills?
Yes. The amount of sugar used in homeopathy is insignificant. One tiny pill is about the size of three grains of sugar. It is placed in a half bottle of water and only a drop at a time of that is taken. So, the amount of sugar used is insignificant.
Are homeopaths always against vaccination?
This is a controversial subject among homeopaths. I believe that if there is no evidence of immune system damage, vaccinations may not cause obvious harm, but to avoid possible damage to the immune system, vaccinations should be kept to a minimum. Why and how to avoid vaccination damage is an important issue for everyone. For example, the hypersensitivity of allergies suggests immune system damage. Because vaccinations cause an artificial increase of antibodies, persons who are already hypersensitive are also vulnerable to further damage.
