Wonderful Homeopathic Books Every Home Needs

Posted by

As some of you may know, I’ve studied and practiced homeopathic medicine for the past 25 years.


I treat my patients with homeopathy for a very simple reason. It’s the deepest healing modality available, it doesn’t just soothe or palliate symptoms, and it actually triggers the body to start to heal itself.

Much of the frustration with conventional medicine today (aside from the unwelcome and sometimes dangerous side effects) is that although the drugs can take away many of the effects of a disease (pain, inflammation, etc.), they don’t affect the disease process itself. Frankly, this can also be true in the ‘natural medicine’ world, where supplements and herbs can help the symptoms but never seem to address the chronic susceptibility to a problem.

As much as I enjoy working with patients, I believe consumers should be empowered to use homeopathy on themselves and with their families in cases of simple, non-life-threatening illness.

Can people with no medical training learn to use homeopathy? Absolutely! Here are some thoughts on how to go about it:

Always remember (particularly if you are new to homeopathy) - the key to choosing the correct/helpful remedy for your child is always the same. One must match the “characteristic symptoms” (i.e., unusual or peculiar) of the person you are caring for (not the common ones like a headache, sore throat, cough, fever, etc.) to a remedy capable of producing similar characteristic symptoms to have success. If you choose a remedy with characteristics most similar to the characteristic symptoms of your family member, you should have a happy outcome every time. If you don't - you or they will either feel no effect or one that is mildly positive at best, but there is never a bad effect from choosing the “incorrect” remedy.

As an aside, you will see that I have also listed a book on homeopathy for your pets. Homeopathy is vastly superior to ordinary medicine for them as well. Safe, gentle and effective.
