Interestingly enough, homeopathy has appealed to intelligent and well-educated individuals for decades. As we learn in Intro to Homeopathy, homeopathy isn’t simply a medicine, it is a discipline and a way of thinking about health that far surpasses the limited viewpoints of conventional medical thought. Let’s start by highlighting some of the viewpoints this class presents:
Health and Adaptability:
Ever hear a mom brag that her child is “never sick?” Western society is guilty of exalting this idea that constant equals health. In Intro to Homeopathy, Cilla dives into the topic of wellness and how health is all about adaptability. Health is demonstrated by an immune system that is capable of rebounding after an illness. Regulation of the immune system is essential to health and only taught through a process of moving through the stages of an illness back to health. A homeopath looks for symptoms that point to a lag in physical, emotional or mental adaptability and assigns a remedy that addresses those areas.
Herring’s Law of Cure:
Unlike conventional medicine that seeks to suppress symptoms, homeopathy is all about listening to what our symptoms are saying! Through the course of homeopathic treatment, a homeopath tunes in to the symptoms presenting in order to determine a remedy and track progress towards health. In Intro to Homeopathy, Cilla describes Herring’s Law of Cure, and how this law helps us to determine one’s state of health as well as the healing process.
Three Principles of Homeopathy:
In order to define what homeopathy is, one must first understand the three distinguishing principles of homeopathy: The Law of Similars, which describes how like cures like; The Law of Totality, which says that a remedy is prescribed based on its expression through the entire organism; and finally, The Law of Minimal Dose, which says that only the smallest amount of medicine that initiates a healing should be given.
