Homeopathy is a medical system based on the basic beliefs that the body can cure itself and that “like cures like.” Homeopathy was developed in the late 1700s in Germany by Samuel Hahnemann, MD, the only person in history to have created a complete medical system in the course of his one lifetime.
The power of Homeopathy is displayed superlatively in the Spanish Flu of 1918, which decimated 20,000 people worldwide. Of those people who were treated conventionally thirty percent died. One percent of those treated homeopathically died. Conventional treatment for the flu then was not much different than treatment for the flu today.
When practiced properly, adhering to the principles of Classical Homeopathy as laid out by Hahnemann, it is safe and effective to treat infants, elderly, pregnant people and even animals. Homoeopathic remedies can be used for the self-treatment of every day simple ailments such as bumps and bruises, bites and stings, colds, coughs, tummy upsets, and many more. It can be helpful to have remedies on hand to use in first-aid situations, here are a few examples.
Aconite: Good for shock or sudden conditions like sore throat or headache.
Arnica: Classic remedy for trauma, injury and bruising.
Belladonna: For red, hot and swollen conditions such as fever, sunstroke, and skin conditions such as boils.
Nux Vomica: Works well for stomach upsets and headaches that are a result of overindulgence in food or alcohol.
Rhus Tox: Can be used for bruised and sore muscles and joints and sometimes arthritis.On April 4-5, Danny Quaranto, MD, DOM, will teach a 15-hour course entitled “Homeopathy for the Go-To Person.” This course provides a working knowledge of approximately 50 different classical homeopathic remedies.
