Allopathy vs Homeopathy 101
In my dedicated 40 years of service i have many tools in my tool box! I dwell deeply into the Ancients Ways our Ancestors cared for their families, globally. For as a Herbalist, I have studied, worked with and taught: Chakra Systems, TCM Traditional Chinese Medicine, Aromatherapy, FLOWER ESSENCE aka FES, Gems and Stone signature, Herbology, Homeopathy, Reflexology, Nutrients as found in Vitamins and Minerals, Nutrition as in Food as Medicine. I have studied and practiced many disciplines such as Hatha, Iyengar, Kundalini + Prana Yoga, T’ai Chi and Chi Gong! Along with Reiki and Totem, I have stayed in awe and in wonderment and very curious to the beautiful diversity of the Nature of Nature which we are Naturally part of ;)
In order to understand homeopathy, you must realize the difference from conventional medicine, known as Allopathy. A Homeopathic‘s view of the Allopathic approach means ‘different from the suffering.’ Allopathic’s treatment with drugs are mostly, given to work against a disease and its symptoms ie ‘anti.’ Think anti-pain, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, anti-depressants, antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-gas etc. It’s all sow often against or anti-our holy whole Body:(
Consider my number one nutrient to teach folks about since my work began. I’ve been known to say “if you learn nothing else from me please learn to tend to your biome. To tend to your friendly flora, as if it’s a
‘Garden-of-Eaten’ ~ daily!”
Probiotic literally means
Pro = For + Biotic = Life
anti = against + biotic = life!
Things that make you go hmmm…

On the other hand, homeopathy means to treat ‘similar to suffering.’ It is well known and established that homeopathic remedies are highly diluted in their preparation with successions. It could be said that homeopathic remedies work at the level of energy, NOT OF MATER! Working with body’s wisdom and innate resonance!
Homeopathy is quite the opposite of the allopathic approach, in that we try to understand what the symptom is telling us. At the same time addressing the person as a whole, helps to uncover the root cause. A key to this approach is that no two people suffer from the same dis-ease in the same way. We each have our own individual ways of reacting to the stresses of life, or exposures; that upset our ability to maintain our inner balance or harmony and therefore our Homeostasis!
Homeopathy matches a person according to the LAW of SIMILARS!
aka ‘Like cures like!’ In 1790 German
Dr. Samuel Hahnemann founded homeopathy on this principle. That the symptoms and signs of the illness are in fact attempts in part of the organism to heal itself. (ie. think fevers working to rid the body of a pathogen, or headache’s warning the body of an imbalance.)
Dr. Hahnemann’s beliefs and ideas are that a remedy should be used to stimulate the restorative forces of nature. Nature which we are part of! Remedies should and can be given without provoking harmful side effects.
He derived the word homeopathy from the Greek word, meaning
Dr. Hahnemann very much believed in what is known as the body’s
Like most cultures through out humanities history, the notion that there is some sort of innate vital principle, which stimulates and regulates the human body systems.
Hippocrates wrote; “Through the like, disease is produced, and through the application of the like it is cured.” He also said, “Our natures are the physicians of our diseases.” That is why homeopathy takes in consideration the person as a whole body, mind and spirit.
Hippocrates “First Do No Harm” really should be a part of the
Hippocratic Oath. What say ye?
Unlike allopathic remedies, Homeopathy is about WHY a remedy is given, not WHAT is given.
Hahnemanns’ conclusion is the foundation of Homeopathy, that when a substance capable of producing a similar symptom or signature to that of the disease, is used to encourage powerful strengthening of the God-given innate defense mechanism built into the human systems. With the correct remedy, the WHYs are answered by studying totality of the experience of each event of each person bodily expressions of imbalance as well mindset and emotions! looking at the full picture of dis-ease!
There are thousands of substances used to create homeopathic remedies, such as plants, minerals and venoms etc., all have an important place in the ‘Materia Medica!’
In this process, the selected substance is repeatedly diluted until the final product is chemically indistinguishable from the diluent. Not a single molecule of original substance can be expected to remain in the product. In my four decades of study and use; I fondly teach that only the innate energy signature is left!
Homeopathy uses the energy of a substances, rather than the chemical properties as allopathic ways do. A system had to be discovered that would release this vital energy and make it available for simulation into the body. This Homeopathic system is called potentiation!
If this sounds ‘all to far fetched, far out, voodoo-ish, witchy, poppycock,
snake oil, new age flower child,
hippy girl-ish’ … well you get my drift. Let me stir the inner observant Einstein in you with his conclusion. Einstein said, “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It could be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.“
This system of Potentiation is the result of Repeated dilution and vibration, also known as succession of the Mother tincture, until the material Content of the original remedy disappears and only the energy pattern remains. This is true of EVERY homeopathic preparation!
