The concept that the body has an innate ability to heal itself is one which has been ignored to a large extent by mainstream medicine. In a world where a drug is offered to alleviate symptoms while the cause is often an after thought, we are all guilty of ignoring what our body is trying to tell us. The ideas of Homeopathy and Homotoxicology are a call to the body to do what comes naturally. A helping hand towards full health and one which gives no harm in return for benefit.
Homeopathy – It is the wisdom of the body that heals
For centuries the philosophy behind Homeopathy has been practised by many cultures. It was recognised by the Chinese as Qi and by Indians as Prana – a life force or energy with the ability to find balance and to heal an imbalanced or weakened body. In these cultures the body was encouraged to do what it does best – healing from within.
This approach was also favoured by the Ancient Greeks. After all it was Hippocrates (the father of medicine) who coined the phrase “like cures like” and Aristotle who carried on these teachings.
This principle was discussed by William Cutler in 1789 with regard to the treatment of malaria. It was acknowledged that the treatment for malaria at the time – Cinchona – would produce symptoms of the disease in healthy subjects. Tested by Hahnemann, it was discovered that “Like” most certainly does cure “Like”.
It is the joining of these two basic principles (the body healing itself and the concept of taking in small amounts of a toxin to encourage healing) which led to homeopathy finally being recognised officially by Dr Samuel Hahnemann in 1796 and the medicinal practice of homeopathy was born.
In modern times Homeopathy has come to mean the ingestion of small heavily diluted amounts of a remedy or toxin to treat a variety of conditions. These remedies are developed using a process of high dilution and succussion – a type of vigorous shaking. The toxicity of the ingredients is rendered harmless, while the healing properties are maintained.
Homotoxicology – detoxification to heal
Closely aligned to Homeopathy, Homotoxicology is an approach which brings together the teachings of homeopathy with the mainstream medicinal approach to healthcare. While it may seem counter-intuitive to use these two systems side by side, it is in fact, powerful and extremely useful for dealing with more complex and difficult conditions.
Taking the diagnostic approach favoured by mainstream healthcare and bringing in the principles of homeopathy, the treatment type of homotoxicology was developed in Germany 50 years ago. It maintains that the body must be rid of toxins to truly heal. This detoxification takes place using combinations of homeopathic remedies designed to facilitate the process. The concept of the body's innate ability to self heal is the cornerstone of this approach.
