“The principle of similars” is the root of homeopathic medicine

Homeopathy was founded in 1796 by German physician Samuel Hahnemann. Homeopathy’s basic premise, “the principle of similars,” maintains that a substance known to cause the symptoms of disease will induce a cure of those symptoms if administered in a small amount.

Rather than masking or suppressing symptoms, homeopathy addresses an overall syndrome of body and mind, strengthening the body’s own defense system so that it can heal itself. Before advising a remedy, homeopaths consider not only the patient’s symptoms but their personal traits, physical states, psychological condition and history as well.

Made from plants, minerals, and other natural substances, homeopathic medicines are created by adding infinitesimal amounts of a specific substance to distilled water and then shaking it, a process known as “succussion.” Homeopaths believe that these repeated shakings and dilutions cause a shadow or imprint on the water known as a fractal – from which arises the medicines’ power.  In fact, the more times a medicine is diluted, the more powerful it’s considered to be. Due to the extreme dilution of the original substance, however, homeopathic remedies can be taken safely – and with no negative side effects.

Homeopathic medicine is more widely practiced and accepted in Europe than in the United States. Half of all Dutch doctors consider homeopathic medicines to be effective, while approximately 30 percent of French doctors and 20 percent of German doctors use homeopathic medicines regularly. And, the British Royal Family has used and supported homeopathy for a very long time.

Join us for a program that reveals the truth about the benefits of homeopathy – while helping you unleash this powerful healing practice in your own life.

Homeopathy has long been considered a threat to conventional medicine

Homeopathy was very popular among prominent and well-educated members of society in urban areas in the nineteenth century. Writers and poets such as Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Louisa May Alcott, Daniel Webster, and Henry James were devotees, and the New York Medical College for Women was originally founded as a homeopathic school.

But the opposition of conventional medicine to homeopathy was significant. Not only were homeopaths speaking out against the accepted pharmaceutical drugs of the day, they were competing with conventional physicians.

Today, mainstream medicine continues to downplay and negate the success of homeopathic medicine – even in the face of compelling evidence. On the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, you’ll hear about the (real) science behind homeopathy, how to best use a homeopathic medicine kit plus much more!

    I have used homeopathic doctors and found the homeopathic medicine very powerful. I had the Epstein Barr virus and it was eliminated with this approach.

  • Peter W

    Why this type of medicine isn’t acknowledged by the medical profession is criminal. It has a long history and a good track record. They even refuse to recognize it as a legitimate healing tool, which can be used along side of conventional treatments.

  • Tammy Appel

    For some people it is hard to understand how so little of a substance can do so much. I recently saw my doctor and mentioned that I have used homeopathic remedies to help with a minor health problem. Her response was it can’t do anything it has too little of anything in it.

    • White Elk Clearwater

      Ask her if she knows the size of the Coxsackievirus? It’s only 0.027 micrometer, yet can cause illness in humans. How about a tiny bit of polonium dust, it can kill a person, etc etc.

  • John Donahue

    The medical doctors have a lot of nerve telling someone that something can’t work even when everything they tried didn’t work. This type of thinking makes no sense. This is the medical system that the public is listing to.

  • Alysea Schmitt

    What I hear and read is there is no scientific data backing up these claims. Yes, and we have the truthful scientific studies conducted on pharmaceuticals. The playing field is not level or we would be using homeopathic medicine.

  • Fredie Clark

    With all the possibilities for healing including cannabis, foods and homeopathic medicine you would thing it would be capturing the attention of the medical profession. Wait that would mean creating a new business model. Preserving the profit flow is the path to healing for them.

  • Ada Matthews

    I can’t wait to listen to this show. I have been told by my doctor that I will not be able to improve my asthmatic condition without steroids, plus a few other prescriptions.

  • Gail Begley

    Homeopathic medicine gives the patient power to heal naturally. It is a approach that takes time, but it is well worth it. I like that it doesn’t cover up symptoms it heals so you do not have to depend on being medicated forever.

  • Laura

    Our medical system is so backward, it is the system with a disease mentality. They call having every test under the sun prevention. They find things that they never addressed on how to prevent. So how can you rely on them to fix anything.

  • Christina Welch

    Augmenting healing with safer methods is against the medical code of profitability. Enhancing health is not the medicals professions job. This alone highlights that American doctors subscribe to do nothing, but watch out for a dreaded disease and then head to their office.

  • Dana Blake

    Conventional medicine can repair and restore due to surgery. However, they can’t do it from the inside out. Homeopathic medicine can and does it for many conditions.

  • Carlyn Finch

    I have used homeopathic remedies for stress and stress related conditions. It works and has done wonders for me. It is something I turn to when i need to balance my system so it can work in harmony.

  • Trudy

    The wonderful thing about homeopathic formulas is they aren’t out of the reach of most people. They aren’t as expensive as drugs and at the same time much safer. A good homeopathic doctor can individualize treatment.

  • Howard Leroy

    I have used homeopathic treatment for an abscess and for the shingles virus with good results. It does what the doctors can’t do. That may be why the medical profession is out to discredit this way of healing.
