This week, Homeopathy Awareness Week, is a great time to learn or remember why homeopathy is such a beloved and appreciated system of medicine which is used all over the world. I made a short video about the three things you need to know about homeopathy, or see the list and some interesting links below:
Three things you need to know about homeopathy:
- Homeopathy is an energy medicine-- This is why it is free of side effects. Homeopathic remedies are derived from natural substances such as plants and minerals, but they don't contain any of the original substance. You can learn more about the basic principles of homeopathy here.
- Homeopathy is safe, gentle and effective -- The founder of homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann, insisted that all three of these traits are important. You can learn more about what Hahnemann had to say about healing in the book he wrote defining the basic principles of homeopathy, the Organon.
- Homeopathy has an amazing history - One hundred years ago, families kept the "book and the box" at home, which was a book describing the use of homeopathic remedies in the home, along with a box of the most commonly used remedies. We teach these remedies in our Basic Program. There were also homeopathic medical schools, doctors, and hospitals in those days. Here is information about homeopathy's remarkable history in epidemics.
