After graduating as a physician, he quickly became disillusioned by the constraints as well as the harm, medication was doing to people. (It's doubtful that he would have different views in the'advanced' medical practices.) He found he couldn't continue to deal with people, while harming them, so he gave up practicing as a doctor.
To keep his family, he started translating medical texts into German. Plus it had been in an English text he came across an early mention (around 2,000 years old) to the concept that'like cures like'. This interested him, so he further investigated it, experimenting on himself.
In essence, this is the principle behind homeopathy. It means that what symptoms arise, as a result of taking the medicine, in a healthy individual, will cure within an unhealthy person with the same symptoms. 'Like cures like'.
He devoted the rest of his life to treating individuals with this brand new system of medicine, to teaching different doctors about it and also to refining its own practices and principles.
That is unprecedented in different fields of medicine, most of which have no base. Although new medicines are continuously being added into our materia medica, and adjustments are being made as our comprehension gets better, the basis of homeopathy can never alter. You can't alter natural laws.
Homeopathic treatment treats you as a whole individual. It is less interested in your personal problem as if you as a whole individual and what was happening in your life once the issue started. To put it differently, the treatment appears for the initial cause. This will be psychological in many cases. For example, a shocking encounter can lead to chronic high blood pressure. Deep grief may result in depression. Physical injury may result in panic attacks.
The method by which in which the treatment works is by stimulating your immune system. The unresolved emotional problem has created a blockage whereby you can no longer cure yourself, a natural capability with a healthy immunity. When the blockage has been removed, you're now able to cure you.
Homeopathic treatment is virtually always oral - you take it in your mouth. It is usually in the form of pillules (little pills) or liquid. It makes no difference what form it's in. Just one dose, or several doses, might be required, depending on you, the problem, the treatment thus far, the time you have had the problem, and several other factors.
Once the last hurt has been resolved, the treatment can be stopped and the problem won't recur. This means that good homeopathic treatment is permanent.
The reason isn't always possible to discover, particularly if it happened in the dim and distant past. In such instances, your personal symptoms can be used, which are often subtle.
As an example, almost everybody who suffers with arthritis will have a stiffness in their joints in some time. However, some people have the stiffness on first movement, some in the end of the day. Some texture improvement with chilly, some with heat. There are lots of subtle variations to each condition.
Since the treatment is about you and undoing past profound harms, as well as your very personal and unique symptoms, the remedy is also very personal. This is how treatment should be. One size does not fit all.
Homeopathic therapy is natural, secure, free of side effects, strong, yet mild. Deep pathology, which goes back generations, may be finally laid to rest. There is no condition that homeopathy can't help with. Animals could be treated with equal success. Even plants benefit from the appropriate homeopathic therapy.
Homeopathy is very 'green'. There are no animal experiments. There are no environmentally polluting procedures.
Although most of what has been discussed previously, would require a trained homeopath to treat successfully, there's another side to homeopathy. Many of the common remedies don't require much knowledge to utilize them efficiently. For example, almost everyone understands the ability of Arnica to treat the consequences of injury and trauma. However, few know the breadth and depth of its capability.
There are approximately 40 common remedies that you could learn to use at home successfully, without spending a lot of instruction. They can treat conditions such as pain, cramps, colic, shock, trauma, bites, burns, strains, sprains, hangovers, food poisoning, headaches, menstrual problems and many more. But, it is highly recommended to find some kind of training, as the principles and theories of homeopathy differs from almost every other sort of healing.
And it is often the prompt treatment of an ailment, that can only occur within minutes of the issue happening, that may make the difference into a complete recovery or just a partial one, if a person at all.
