Homeopathy, a remarkably powerful tool for healing, can be used successfully in the hands of both the homeopath and the interested person. This system of healing uses small doses of natural substances to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself. In homeopathic prescribing, a single substance is found which matches the symptom pattern of the sick person. Since homeopathy treats the whole person, physical, mental, and emotional symptoms are all taken into account when finding the right homeopathic remedy.

Homeopathic prescribing is based on the individual’s symptom pattern, not just on his or her medical diagnosis. Ten people with the same illness might need ten different homeopathic remedies, based on each one’s particular response to being ill. It is necessary to find the correct remedy which a person needs at a given time. People may need one homeopathic remedy for their long-term symptoms and a different one when they have a minor illness which has a different set of symptoms.

Homeopathic remedies are useful in supporting the body’s natural response for all kinds of illnesses, from acute to chronic illnesses. You can learn to assist your body through homeopathy for many types of acute illness and first-aid situations if you have good observational skills, the right homeopathic training, and books for reference. Chronic illnesses, however, must be referred to as a well-trained, qualified, and experienced homeopath in order to avoid potential problems and to get the best results.

Not only will a qualified homeopath better understand the underlying condition, presenting symptomatology and matching remedy picture, but will also know when a referral is required to ensure the client’s health and safety are upheld.

Acute emotional states like anger, sadness, and grief will also respond to homeopathic treatment, but long-standing mental and emotional illness should only be treated by competent professionals. Learning to address acute problems at home through homeopathy can be a very rewarding experience and you will feel great satisfaction at being able to support suffering and assist in bringing healing to those who need it.

Chronic illnesses like heart disease, migraines, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, asthma, multiple sclerosis, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and mental illnesses like major depression, anxiety and schizophrenia are all able to be supported by homeopathy but should be directed to a professional fully trained homeopath with considerable experience in chronic case management. These complex, long-standing conditions that take a great deal of knowledge to understand and address successfully with homeopathy. Such cases also require a deep knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, and physical and laboratory diagnosis just to begin to understand what is happening in these chronic cases. To find the right remedy involves extensive training in case analysis and knowledge of nearly two thousand homeopathic remedies, which can take years of study. Direct chronic cases to the professionals and rather try homeopathy at home on acute (short term) conditions with friends and family members.
