Dear prospective patient,
I feel that I have to be explicit in what a successful homeopathic treatment asks from you, as a patient. I also feel that you have to know ahead of time what to expect from Homeopathy, how remedies are made and how they act on the human body.
I am using the most advanced methods of Hahnemann, with doses in medicinal solution, that was found to be the most effective method, acting more gentle and curative on the organism.
In an overview of the process of treatment by Homeopathy, I can clearly see that, in every case, there is need for at least 3 main components, as coming from the patient:
– acceptance of the existence of energy beyond the material substance
– active involvement in the treatment
– trust in homeopath as to follow the indications
I will discuss each of them right here.
Homeopathy’s patients have to know and accept that Homeopathy is an Informational Medicine, working with energy and not with substance drugs. The homeopathic remedies come in different potencies (read more) and after 6C there is not a single molecule of the original substance in the remedy, but they act curatively even for a longer period of time and on a deeper level.
When talking about energy, the dosage of the homeopathic remedy and the way it is given, are not following the substance drug’s rules. ‘More’ is not ‘better’ and dilutions are not merely dilutions! Contrary of what we may expect, through potentization and dilution, the homeopathic remedy is even more powerful against disease.
As this component seems to have the biggest effect on the human mind, I would rather say that if someone can not pass this mind barrier is better not to look for help in Homeopathy. This is not because it will not be effective, as Homeopathy does not need to believe in it in order to act curatively, but rather let the time and skills of the homeopath to be used in those cases, where beside needing, there is also this acceptance. Homeopathy can act here freely and the cure may plenty develop without facing the ‘obstacle to cure’, that in many cases resides in this component.
There is also need for active personal involvement in the treatment, as the patient feedback is important in the case management. It helps the homeopath to decide about the timely fashion of repeating the dose, the adjustment of the dose to ensure a gently yet curative action, the progress of the case… as part of the homeopathic individualization process of curing.
And of course there is the trust component in the ‘patient- homeopath’ relationship. Trust is not something that you can get straight from the first meeting but rather be built in time as your case progresses.
The journey to health is not necessary easy with every person. Depending on situation, there may be a long time suppression and the organism may respond sometime with strong healing crisis, that in fact is very good, but can scatter the relationship. There can be, also, inevitable short time aggravations in the continue process of adjusting the dose to your body response. However, the intensity and duration of healing crisis and similar aggravation are more easily and more effectively controlled by homeopathic solution doses. Usually they will not last more than few days (usually hours), not overly strong and will be followed by great improvement. Similar aggravations are not something that we look for in the process of curing, but rather adjusting the dose to have only improvements. Yet sometimes they have to be considered as part of the healing process.
Yours in Health,
