Homeopathy Meanings

Definition of homeopathy

According to homeopathy, water has a memory in which it holds the medicinal effects of the actual substance and it transmits those effects into the patient's body when consumed. This is the mechanism of homeopathy (info taken from Wikipedia). There are several homeopathy definitions are circulated on the internet, every definition has it is on the theory of how it works. You will explore the full meanings of homeopathy in this article by reading certain useful examples; besides this page, you can discover hundreds of real homeopathic case examples on our site.

What does homeopathic mean?

The homeopath's chief concern is the vital force. The meanings of homeopathy may give an idea of this vital force from the example of an egg. Inside the egg, there is a semi-fluid substance which too many serves no other purpose than food. But give that egg some time and a little warmth, and from that undifferentiated mass of substance comes out a bird with a full structural organization, the bones, the beak, the kidney, the liver, the veins and the arteries. Surely somewhere, your test-tube or any instrument cannot find out where lay embedded a vital principle which beat out that chaotic substance into a complete live animal, active and intelligent, with the power to transmit the urge of procreation.
The process of man's creation is not otherwise. A homeopath especially a beginner, should very often ponder over this fundamental aspect of human life including that of himself and of other men; and only through repeated meditations, he can be sure of his ground as a homeopath, and what more he can have a glimpse into the deeper aspects of the connecting link between the creation and the Creator.

There is a general perception that Homoeopathy is backdated system of medicine. This is very funny. We have to remember the actual fact is that, literally Homoeopathy is the latest invented system of Medicine. You also may say that this is the only form of contemporary or modern medicine, invented only 250 years back. And the most important thing is that the modern science is very much unable to explain that how Homoeopathic Medicine works on the human body. The paradox is so called modern science can't ignore its efficacy or relevancy but they are a total failure to give a proper and authentic evidence for the mechanism of action of Homoeopathic medicine upon the human body. Scientists only giving various hypotheses like Nanomedicine, energy medicine, the memory of water etc. but we medics strongly demands to the scientific fraternity to discover a definitive conclusion about the Mechanism of this latest form of medicine for the benefit of humanity.

Why does homoeopathy fail? 

From the time of origin of Homoeopathy by Dr. Hahnemann till today, it has survived the tests of time. In many countries, homoeopathy has been recognized as an authentic system of medicine. Today, more and more people are becoming aware of it and are experiencing its wonderful cures. Its phenomenal success has been witnessed and appreciated in all over the world. The WHO has recognized homoeopathy as an accepted system of medicine and as the second largest system of medicine in the world. However, homoeopathy has been a victim of a constant onslaught from various agencies all around the globe against time to time. The fact is that homoeopathy does not fail; it is a homoeopathic practitioner who fails. We must avoid the ignorance of Section 153 of the Organon which says that we have to prescribe on uncommon rare strange or peculiar symptoms. Failures are because many have taken homoeopathy as a backdoor entry into medical practice. Homoeopathy is not to do away with the knowledge of diagnosis and differential diagnosis. 

When a Physician is aware of common symptoms of disease then only he will be able to understand what are uncommon and work out the cases. Thus, here encyclopedia of common and uncommon symptoms affords excellent help.

The basic problem our Homoeopathic fraternity is we never want to realize that without unity and cooperation of each other we cannot survive and sustain, because Market economy is against Homoeopathy as they cannot do much unethical profit by selling Homoeopathy , Big Media houses also do not promote the success stories of our system of medicine, Government is also very indifferent to this system of medicine, which is working in grass root level very efficaciously without getting any recognition and real publicity. So in this context where we have less monetary support, less media support, if we do not throw our personal Ego, idiocy and contradiction of each other, then we cannot save our pathy as well as ourselves.

Is Yoga an alternative?

Yoga can be as it is popularly conceived of in the west, a system of exercises for mental and physical health including meditation and breathing. But there comes a point in yoga when your whole way of being becomes the yoga. You used to do yoga from 5-6 ever evening on your mat at home, or at the studio. Now you are participating in your yoga all the time, on your drive into work, while you wait in line at the checkout at the grocery store, or even typing up a Facebook post in your spare time. Then you have stopped doing yoga for you have become the yoga. You are yoga.

Homeopathy Examples!

A pregnant lady in a village went to town (where her sister lived) for delivery. The doctors in a nursing home after examining her declined to admit her because instead of descending, the uterus was in the upward position. She was then taken to the government hospital. Upon examining her, even they said that a major surgery had to be done and since the senior surgeon was not available they would not admit her. She came home weeping. It was solved by single remedy and a single dose within an hour normal and safe delivery result.
When I heard this I wanted to find out if homoeopathy could help her and so turned to Yingling emergency Accoucheur's. On page 229we find the following:
“Upward, uterus seems to go: Cimicifuga."
I gave her Cimicifuga (Actaea racemosa)-10M, one single dose. Within minutes she felt the uterus coming down to its normal position; and also developed labor pains: so, was rushed to the hospital. This time, upon examining her, the attending doctor said that everything was normal and so admitted her and it was a safe and normal delivery!
Case by Dr. Engr Suzain

I have seen many of the homeopathic doctors. They are good no doubt but they aren’t good at treating every disease. I have a disease that no one has been able to treat. I am treating the disease myself and it's working. What I think is each doctor should come to know about the diseases and its severity rather than just knowing how to treat the symptoms. The experienced doctors usually come across many diseases by as the untreated allopathic patients come to homeo doctors along with their termed disease. That’s the request to all the homeo doctors to have much knowledge about the allopathic diseases so that they could treat the patient well. Because homeo medicines are way more powerful than allopathic ones that are the only reason patients run behind it.

I believe homeopathy works in a different way. It depends on the symptoms of the patient and works only when the remedy suits the patient. A homeopathic remedy consists of a very small amount of active ingredient and no active ingredient diluted in water. But there's no scientific evidence of homeopathy. But a western medical system is science-based. Hence, western medicines are supposed to cure the diseases directly. So if you select allopathy, self-medication might be successful. But in homeopathy, self-medication is not possible, I believe, unless you are a homeopath yourself!! Homeopathy is impossible without a homeopath. Though the concept is based on "pseudo-science", homeopathy does work, no doubt. Millions of patients are getting benefitted by homeopathy.

Homeopathy works for me!

Patients often ask me that should they take ‪Homoeopathy and ‪Allopathy medicine simultaneously. The answer is yes. The patients who are taking allopathic medicines for depression or Diabetes are significantly responding to Homoeopathic medicines for critical illnesses though diabetes and hypertension can be well treated by homoeopathic medicines. However, we have to remember there is no fighting off an inimical relationship between Allopathy and Homoeopathy. The aim of both systems of medicine is same, serving the Humanity.

Basically, Homoeopathic medicine is nothing but an energy medicine. Te mechanism of action is always been explain by Physics, Whereas mechanism of action of Allopathic medicine is been explain by Chemistry. This is the basic different.

So far the actual mechanism of action for Homoeopathic medicine is not known to the world, as because the contemporary scientific understanding is unable to explain it. Though lots of hypotheses are there in support of its workability but we all have to remember in scientific research or understanding we cannot ignore systemic observation or applied aspect of it. Homoeopathy is an undiscovered science. The responsibilities have to take the scientist worldwide.

A Research Organization of Australia is saying Homoeopathy is Bogus:
My Question on it!

1. If contemporary science is unable to explain the mechanism of action of Homoeopathy then who will be responsible for that! There are many observations in the different field of Nature in which contemporary science is a total failure to provide an exact explanation or conclusion.  Should they all are considered to be wrong observations?

2. If Homoeopathic acts on the basis of Placebo effect then how it significantly works on children or animals?

3. If we cannot explain (within our own limitations) something should it be justified to deny the fact to hide our own failure or we have to rethink or think differently on this matter?

4. If Homoeopathy is nothing but a placebo then why WHO or Govt. is not banning this system of medicine?

5. There are many healing ways in the world. Then why only Homoeopathy is giving significant results. According to WHO Homoeopathy is 2nd most popular and used system of medicine worldwide on different critical illnesses. Why not other so-called "non-evidence based pathy" are not giving such good results? If the placebo effect is the backbone of Homoeopathy then all the other healing ways should give similar significant results.

Chemists and scientists are concerned with physical and chemical properties of the medicinal substances but they are unaware of the therapeutic properties which are never quantitative but always qualitative in nature. Hahnemann always criticized this tendency to look for the treatment on the basis of physical and chemical properties of substances. Therapeutic property matters here. The world has not changed much from those times.
We need your valuable opinion and suggestion on this issue, thanks.

Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Depression

Leave a Comment
Does anger, anxiety and depression are curable with homeopathic remedies? Yes off course homeopathy naturally treat the person having depression and anxiety problems according to his symptoms. Homeopathy treatment for depression is much better than any naturopathic or holistic treatment because it is more close to nature than any other treatment in the world. Depression is characterized by a lack in one area (caused by personal actions, or the actions of others, or even other events and circumstances beyond control) and an excess in another area or areas. If you're depressed and play video games all day, quitting video games isn't the answer - You will still be depressed, just with fewer things to do. One other note - Putting one's self-worth in anything but accepting yourself as you are is a bad idea - One can put their self-worth in a belief, a hobby, a relationship (or relationships), their career, or a hobby, but ultimately, all of those things can go wrong, so your self-worth is only strong until one of these things gets messed up, or goes against expectations.   One can even go so far as to say that many cases of depression are because people place their self-worth in something other than just liking themselves as they are, and when something derails their expectations (say a relationship goes sour, or you lose your job, or your hobby becomes monotonous) they become depressed because their relationship, job, or hobby isn't providing them with their self-worth anymore.

Depression is not caused and fueled by social networks, which just sound ridiculous. People may have family issues or some may not even have a family at all, no support system for them or their selves. How cheesy these sound its true but, as a teenager was needy. We want to feel loved and accepted but we may feel that it’s a long shot and impossible. And honestly, do you think they want to have social anxiety or depression? And getting yourself involved in activities and increasing social skills and relationships is not an easy or an expected thing for someone who faces saying social anxiety. On this page you will discover a unique list of best homeopathic remedies for depression, anger and anxiety in teenage girls and guys.
Homeopathic Remedies for Depression 
The true issue regarding self-pleasure and its ultimate effects is a person's unwillingness to listen to their own bodies. Our body has hormones that give us uncontrollable amounts of emotional discharge and over time, we learn to activate these hormones externally. Any anxiety that results from these stimuli can be directly linked to an individual's lack of regard for their mental health, whether it is good or bad. Almost like unlocking a chamber of bliss to be accessed at will. To the core, this is what causes disorders like Anorexia Nervosa: the inability to healthily manage your weight and diet. So in a way the anxiety and depression are dispensed directly from a disturbing confusion about who we really are to ourselves and to others. In order to make sense of it, we MUST listen to the signals, our bodies are sending us. These biological signals dictate who we truly are to the core.

Tips to reduce depression without drugs:

  1. Take deep breaths, try and find something to distract you from a book, a film or maybe go for a walk.
  2. Surrounding yourself with positive people and removing negative influences in your life is a good starting point.
  3. There are people in your life that's constantly bringing you down and spoiling your mood. You need to detect these individuals and remove yourself from them.
  4. Confidence comes from accomplishment. It doesn't have to be anything big. Sometimes, just getting through a day without tears or despair is a BIG accomplishment for someone with depression. Maybe keep a journal and write things down. Some days you might have one thing, some days you'll be able to see many things that can be viewed as accomplishments. Someday just remembering to breath is an accomplishment.
  5. Having a bubble bath spa day with essential oils and, doing things that you know you excel at, changing something small, like a hairstyle or a different shade of nail polish, painting a room a brighter color, gardening, eating bright fruits, doing something only a kid would do, that helps a bit, and you tend to smile and giggle a bit more.
  6. Write a journal each day and you should write down 5 things that you are grateful for each day. This allows you to focus on the positives rather than the negatives.
  7. You have made such good choices and progress so far, though; you had reached out for help, which many can't bring themselves to do. You can do this as well. Think of some encouraging words you can write down to take with you on your first day back.

Example Case Study 1:
Male 38 years old suffers from strong anxiety attacks that are accompanied by feeling of constriction in the chest. It started 2 years ago when his wife has changed her job and become to travel more and more connect with people. He began to be very jealous (3). At the same time his blood pressure went up and now it is about 160-180/100-105.

He is taking antidepressants due to jealousy which causes a decrease of jealousy about 50% but still is forced to control his wife.

The anxiety attacks are coming without provocation together with strong constriction around the chest and with sensation as if something (he describes it as some phantom or specter) pushes him down. He spontaneously says that last month’s cannot stand anything tight around his neck.
He began to react strongly to alcoholic drinks becoming very aggressive regarding his words (quarrelsome, sarcastic, etc.)

He used to enjoy a company of people but now he is not able to feel joy anymore.
He suffers from right-sided migraines many years which come in frequency once a week.
He could not stand the warm weather in the past but last year’s he is able to be in warm more and more and likes it more and more.

Follow-up after 8 weeks:
3 days after the remedy (Amyl Nitrosum 200) he had a most terrible migraine in his life and since then he is free of migraines. One week after the remedy his anxieties got worse very strongly for one night but since then he is free of anxiety attack altogether. The blood pressure is 135-140/90-97. Jealousy is much better but still is a little bit there. He feels much better in every respect.

When I am studying small remedies, I always try to find out what polychrests are most similar. This information you can easily find in Materia Medica Viva from G. Vithoulkas. Now if you face the case when you see the traits of polychrest which is strongly there BUT there are contraindication (Amyl-nit can stay at sunlight in contrast to Lachesis) or there are no confirmatory symptoms of that polychrest OR the person took this polychrest without effect, then you have to think of small remedies which are most similar and try to confirm it.
Regards: Dr. Petr

Example Case Study 2:
I have a case that has stalled. It’s a 55yr old woman with depression. Trapped in a loveless marriage and can't leave because she is financially dependent on the man. She had a lot of fear of poverty. Childhood abuse by a mother (physical/emotional) and abandoned by the father. She also had a history of postpartum psychosis in which she had an impulse to sexually abuse baby and became suicidal due to horror with these thoughts. She has been weaning off anti-depressant since (12yrs). Peculiars in the case that have not budged! She had dreams of trying on shoes that are too small, or clothes that are too tight and she can't get them off and she was going from place to place searching for shoes that will fit. Convulsions with emotional release, she shakes wildly as the spasm passes through her. She feels better with the release. I also do Craniosacral on her and she has these shaking fits then too. She describes it as the energy vibrating through her. She is obsessed with meditation, chanting, and a guru that she idolizes. She has had Sepia (not good), Falco peregrinus (cleared a lot of stuff but stalled) Lac-H (lots of lac-h themes appeared with Falco peregrinus and those have resolved) the last remedy was Carcinosin.

Depending on the dose, many people would need to drink more water or eating carbohydrates. It can increase or decrease racing thoughts, depending also on the kind of antipsychotics, antidepressants, mood stabilizers and benzodiazepines you're taking, how often and which does and the behavior and personality of the user. It also depends on the thoughts that surround the moment (not solved paranoid thoughts, depressive thoughts, and stress management) and what you're using it for (relaxation, happiness, and well-being feeling). It's advisable if willing to try, start with the lower dose possible and feeling in a safe environment and situation. It cans difficult work and study performance if taking it regularly. In a case of excess of thoughts or stimulation due to usage, it's advisable to consume food rich in antioxidants. Vitamin C in oranges, strawberries, and lemon are advisable. If you are feeling unsafe, talk to an open-minded and calm friend or partner about it before doing it. Carrying your medication also helps to make you feel in control of your body.

Every material in the world is made up of elements, and when they're combined it makes a chemical. When they interact with organic compounds (things made up of carbon, which makes up a good part of all life forms), it is known as organic chemistry. The only difference between medicine and naturopathy is that medicines are recognized as safe and effective by the FDA or other local drug authority, while naturopathic drugs are not. Homeopathy is considered a completely different type of treatment because it isn't having any side effects at all. Modern drugs can give you side effects, a lot of them, they can make you anxious, paranoid, unsociable, scared of what might happen, there are alternatives that don't make you feel quite as bad as that. Psychiatric medicine only treats the symptoms but not the underlying reason why you're depressed in the first place and also they work against the natural body's processes.

I think you can see from the number of responses, there are multiple ways to cope with this problem. You have to find the one that works for you. If you want to be on meds, then look to the alternatives. A word of caution would be that when you're depressed you're not in a position to evaluate if something is working for you. You need outside counsel, a doctor, a therapist even a really smart compassionate friend can tell you if you seem OK. Many people report symptoms that cause them to feel just horrible. Please remember, millions of people around the world suffer from schizophrenia, anxiety and or depression and successfully getting cured by using natural homeopathic remedies without any side effects. You are never alone in this and we are all here to help one another.
