Using homeopathy at home – brilliantly

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

homeopathic-medicine-for-boy(NaturalHealth365) So far in this series, we’ve looked at what homeopathy is, why it is contentious and how to tell if your homeopathic treatment, or any treatment you’ve chosen, is making you better or sicker.Next we are going to look at how you, your family and friends can save a small fortune in prescription charges and co-pays and avoid unpleasant side effects.

As you know homeopathic remedies are prepared so that the original substance is highly diluted, but the main thing that qualifies a remedy as being homeopathic is that you chose the correct one!

Always follow the Law of Similars in homeopathy

“Homeo” means “similar” and “pathy” means “suffering.” The whole idea of similar suffering is absolutely central to homeopathy. This means that a remedy will only work well if you took your time and selected the one that matches the kind of suffering you, or the person you are trying to help is experiencing.

Always follow the Law of the Minimum Dose

When you have found the correct match, only give one dose (one tablet or pillule or a few granules) then wait. If it helps, only repeat if the benefit wears off and the same symptoms return. If the symptoms change you may need to change the remedy.

Stay in your comfort and competence zone

Begin by treating simple first aid situations like bruises, cuts, grazes, sprains, strains, burns and non-poisonous insect bites. These are super-easy to treat and will help you gain confidence in both Homeopathy and your own ability to choose correctly. Download my free e-book (see below) to learn more about how to get started.

Next you can move on to dealing with minor illnesses. Here you will need to pay more attention to getting the right match.

Everyone’s bruises and cuts are similar, but our colds and ’flus can be very different from one another.

Get a homeopathy kit

Get a homeopathy kit and keep it with you at all times. A good kit will cover things like: Bruises, Cuts, Burns, Bites, Stings, Sprains, Strains, Coughs, Croup, Sore throats, Headaches, Earaches, Measles, Mumps, Chicken pox, Whooping cough, Colic, Cramps, Cystitis, Stomach upsets, Food poisoning, Pain and discomfort after dental work, Teething, Test, Examination or Performance anxiety, Flu, Gastric flu, Fevers and Colds.

Get your nose into a book

As you get more into using Homeopathy you’ll need a really in depth reference book. There are many good ones. I like Miranda Castro’s “The Complete Homeopathy Handbook.”

Take advantage of free online software

Another useful, free way to check that your remedy is a good match is to use the Remedy Finder at I would still recommend you stick only to first aid and minor illnesses, even though the Remedy Finder is more extensive than that.

Get professional help if you need it

Last, but not least, if your remedy choices are not working or they do work for a while, but the same symptoms keep coming back then consider opting for in depth homeopathic treatment with a homeopath to really get to the root of things.

    Hi, I have a tumor on my left breast in the upper quadrant towards the heart that has not changed much in the last year. It doesn’t hurt and I can move it. It is a tumor, because I had an ultrasound. I’m 57 years old. I do not want to have a conventional medical treatment, and would like to be able to dissolve this tumor without removing it naturally.

    Hi Mary,

    I have a son (17 years old), who has anxiety when dealing with new/different situations (i.e. going to a new restaurant causes tightness in the chest and he can’t think straight). He has recently had a couple of panic attacks when driving. For the most part, he says he is always dealing with a low level anxiety, which can escalate quickly. He said he worries all the time about making something of his life and he’s concerned about dying. Such big worries for such a young man! It breaks my heart. Any homeopathic remedies you would recommend trying?

    I have had excellent results using homeopathy to cure a cough that lingered after I had recovered from pneumonia. I religiously use a homeopathic remedy anytime I get a cold. I had a very bad wound, that was not responding well to conventional treatment, for which I took a homeopathic remedy along with Manuka honey dressings. The wound healed so quickly I, and my doctor, couldn’t believe it. But, the best was when I used homeopathy to help heal a fractured wrist that was healing slowly, according to my doctor, and then healed like crazy after the homeopathic remedy. It is the best thing, and I always look to homeopathy for minor things, first aid and such.

    Hi Sandra- I wasso sorry to hear about your illness. I can recommend a great sself health book by Dtr. Paul Clayton ‘Health Defence’ – an in depth book on how to deal with tumours on three different levels. Also if you visit Creedence this is a health info website run by Philip Day, a big voice on getting rid of cancer by natural means. Best wishes.Anita

    Above is a link to a book available on written by Dr. David Derry, M.D. entitled Breast Cancer & Iodine: How to prevent and Survive Breast Cancer (without chemo, radiation, or surgery). There is a also a site called “”, a completely Holistic site for curing breast cancer.
    Once you read through the information you will come to understand that any breast abnormality, including your tumor, is caused by Iodine deficiency.

    And this site below which explains that Iodine deficiency is a promoter of cancer for all of the Endocrine Glands.

    If your illness is viral in origin I recommend either Olive Leaf Extract (a organic form may be found in the company, “Paridise Herbs” available on-line) or wild crafted Oregano oil: the brand “Oreganol”, or a pure form of organic Garlic, such as the one from “Bio-Pure”. The last 2 will work for a bacterial pathogen as well. Garlic will also work on certain strains of Candida Albicans.
    To clear up the excess mucus issues sooner stay off of ALL commercial dairy. Go to a site “” to learn more.

    Serratia marcescens is ubiquitous. It is commonly found in soil, water, plants and animals. It is widely present in non potable water in underdeveloped countries due to poor chlorination. This microorganism is a common agent responsible for contamination of Petri plates in laboratories, and is also found to grow on bread [22]. Although S. marcescens is a pathogenic microorganism, it is only so with immunocompromised individuals such as those found in hospitals where many of the documented infections take place. The mode of transmission of this microorganism is by either direct contact,or by catheters, droplets, saline irrigation solutions, and other solutions that are believed to be sterile [22].

    The point being it is not so much a threat to a “healthy” person as it is to an immune compromised individual. Try the common 3% Hydrogen Peroxide solution in a spray bottle without further dilution. This will not harm you to use quite liberally, and without a mask or gloves (our own bodies actually make this substance within). You can use diluted Clorox if the H.P. doesn’t do the trick, but you MUST be well protected, eyes in terms of splashing, nose and mouth in terms of vapor, which is bad for your Thyroid. Your clothes, obviously, as they will have tiny white spots all over them where the color is now missing.

    99% of all fractures of the elderly occur from primarily a major Vitamin D3 deficiency. Either ramp up the Vit D to around 6,000 I.U. in divided doses or have the proper blood test done, Hydroxy 25, to find out for yourself.
    The other instigator in all of this is waaaay too much Fluoride in whatever this person is drinking, eating, or brushing the teeth with: switch immediately to a NON-fluoride toothpaste.
    The next most significant thing to cause fractures is the Osteoporosis medications themselves. Please find some convincing information quoted from an alternative medical doctor, Dr. David Brownstein, who was my Mentor in the use of Iodine in my Wellness Practice. Please read this below:

    A new study in the Archives of Medicine (published online May 21, 2012) destroys the fictional theory of treating osteoporosis with bisphosphonate drugs. I have been writing and warning about the dangers of bisphosphonate drugs for years. In my book, Drugs that Don’t Work and Natural Therapies That Do, I predicted, “…the long-term use of these medications will… lead to the formation of poor quality bone.” Unfortunately, my prediction has come true.

    Bisphosphonate drugs (Fosamax, Boniva, Actonel, and Zometa) were found to significantly increase the risk of atypical bone fractures the longer the drugs were taken. Shockingly, not only was the risk tremendously increased, it was found to be increased in a linear fashion.

    In fact, the study found those taking bisphosphonate drugs less than two years were 35 times more likely to have an atypical bone fracture. For patients who took the medications for two to five years, there was a 47 fold increase in atypical fractures. Women who took the drugs for five to nine years had a 117 fold increase and those that took the prescriptions over nine years were 176 times more likely to suffer an atypical fracture.

    How could this occur? Aren’t these drugs supposed to make stronger bones? The answer to these questions becomes easy to answer after studying the mechanism of action of osteoporosis drugs. These drugs poison a crucial enzyme that is important to the bone remodeling cells–the osteoclasts. It can easily be predicted that the poisoning of the osteoclasts will disrupt normal bone function and lead to the formation of weak bone. I explain this in much more detail in my book.

    Folks, this article is a big deal. I will watch closely how Big Pharma responds to it. There is more information in this article that is damning to the bisphosphonate drugs. I will keep you updated in future posts.

    These drugs should be pulled from the market. Their use has never conclusively been shown to lower fracture risk. Remember, osteoporosis is not the result of a deficiency of bisphosphonate drugs. It results from a combination of factors including eating a poor diet as well as nutritional and hormonal imbalances. A better approach is to use a therapy that treats the underlying cause of osteoporosis. This includes eating a healthier diet, avoiding antacid medication and balancing the hormonal system with the use of bioidentical, natural hormones.

    Hi Sandra, Another super author I reccommend is Dr. Hulda Clarke her books A Cure for all Diseases and A Cure for all Cancers are essential reads. Also investing in a Zappertek to destroy internal parasites is essential for prevention as well as cure. best wishes take care Anita

    Oh my god… Did you know that homeopathy has been thoroughly discredited by the medical community many times over? Homeopathy does not cure illnesses. If your illness is severe enough to require treatment then you should get actual medical treatment from a doctor.
