“Homeopathy cures a greater percentage of cases than any other method of treatment. Homeopathy is the latest and refined method of treating patients economically and non-violently.” - Mahatma Gandhi
Homeopathy is literally like taking music in a pill. It is profound energetic healing medicine - so advanced that we literally don't have the ability to measure it yet. But we do know it works. Allow me to explain...
(Above is one of Homeopathy's most famous remedies: Arnica, a flower. It is taken to relieve muscle pain. I have a friend who recently took Arnica after a biking accident and was surprised by how fast he healed. That's homeopathy for you!)
Recently I've been studying homeopathy. And it is blowing my mind. Turns out that many people around the world have been using homeopathy for years with great success. It it actually used by more people presently than Western medicine.
As a form of energetic healing, homeopathy is simple, inexpensive, and can create profound healing of many symptoms at once. And it has zero side effects. In parts of Europe, homeopathic remedies are given out by doctors. In India, homeopathy is also a part of the medical system.
Because of it's energetic nature, homeopathy reaches into every corner of your being, and even a single remedy taken once can create improvements in multiple symptoms: your depression, fatigue, and sugar cravings, can all be improved at once, for ex. Plus, with homeopathy, you may only need a remedy once. It's very different from Western medicine and has been used with great success all over the world to help stop disease epidemics.
And it is cheap to implement. Very cheap.
So why isn't homeopathy a part of Western medicine? Because of a simple, insidious obstacle: the doubting, concrete mind. Aka 'chronic skepticism'.
“I can't manage without homeopathy. In fact, I never go anywhere without homeopathic remedies. I often make use of them.” - Paul McCartney
So How Does Homeopathy Work?
Homeopathic remedies are made from things found in nature, and work through a principle called the law of similars, which applies to all energetic medicine. In homeopathy, success depends on taking a 'similar' to your problem or symptoms.
With homeopathy you literally take the energetic essence of the substance that would give a healthy person the same symptoms that you are seeking relief from. You're taking the energetic signature of the substance left in the water. So homeopathy is energy medicine, not chemical medicine.
Anyone familiar with the work of Masuru Emoto, "Messages from Water", will already appreciate waters ability to crystallize differently according to what it's exposed to.
Or, the other view about how homeopathy works is: through nano-particles. Just like with light, there is a particle view and a wave view of homeopathy.
The particle view is that homeopathy works through 'nano-doses', aka nano-pharmacology, which means it's so dilute that our present technology can't measure the presence of the substance in the remedy. But we do know it's there, because we *can* measure it in the form of radio-waves (radiation), which is the wave view of how homeopathy works: homeopathy works through the crystalline ability of water to take on the energy of a substance. So homeopathic remedies are a lot like taking music in a pill - music has no physical reality - it's just waves in the air, but we know it can move us to tears, motivate us to exercise or to fight, and evoke spiritual feelings of love and bliss. All this from music, which is basically nothing. Just a pattern of waves.
It's worth mentioning that the way homeopathy works makes no sense from the point of view of western allopathic medicine, which has yet to acknowledge the energetic reality of things. Western medicine looks at things as physical or chemical interactions only.
But we really can't compare western allopathic medicine to energetic medicine (of which homeopathy is one form), because they work on totally different levels. It's like comparing newtonian physics to quantum physics. Newtonian physics is the science of the really big, while quantum physics is the science of the really small. They have totally different rules.
So with homeopathy, you're literally taking very specific frequencies that resonate with whatever you have going on, infused into a lactose pellet. And this reaches into every corner of your being, even affecting the mental and emotional bodies, where illness or imbalance begins.
So it seems real clear to me that if you're not using homeopathy, you're missing out. Homeopathy works at the level of cause, has no side effects, and can even shift many symptoms at once, bringing about a return to a whole state of health and vitality...and all that for $8 and taking some lactose tablets! No wonder Gandhi spoke so highly of it.
Homeopathy reminds me very much of the elegance that nature uses in doing things.
But to be fair, to get the full effectiveness of homeopathy, you need to either learn which remedy to take yourself, or you will want to see a good constitutional homeopath. But once you know what remedy you need, the remedy itself is very cheap. About $8 for a small vial of lactose tablets. And you'll only need a few of them, so you'll have lots left for if you need them again, or to share with your friends. Every time you buy a remedy, you're building your own medicine cabinet.
But perhaps the greatest effect of homeopathy is that it will extend your life, because it boots your vitality. If you use it.
I often tell people we want to be use both 1) physical medicine, and 2) energetic medicine, since as human beings we exist on both physical and energetic levels. We are more than just a physical body. We also have an emotional body and a mental body - this makes up what has been called our 'energy anatomy'. It is very real.
And this is also why we often don't get a full healing response (a profound improvement of ALL our symptoms) with just chemical medicine alone (like nutrition or drugs). Because there are levels of our being that chemical or physical medicine doesn't touch. This is also why people who use homeopathy swear by it - they have seen, over and over again, how homeopathy works thoroughly and profoundly, to shift symptoms that often weren't responding to conventional medicine at all.
