History and Development of Homeopathy

HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT OF HOMEOPATHY


Homeopathy is a science based on the law of similarities, or “like cures like.” This law states that a remedy can cure a disease if it produces in a healthy person symptoms similar to those of the disease.

Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine which gives relief from suffering to millions of people in nearly every country in the world. It is the therapy of treating like with like. The word homeopathy is derived from the Greek word homoios, meaning like or similar. Homeopathy is concerned with the treatment of the whole person, as an individual, rather than treatment of the disease alone. For this reason, people with the same symptoms are often treated with different medicines.

Homeopathy has a significant place within both curative and preventive medicine. It is also used effectively in dental treatment and the treatment of animals. It is commonly used in conjunction with other therapies such as acupuncture and chiropractic.

 

NOT A NEW FORM OF THERAPY


Homeopathy has been practiced for many centuries, long before the birth of Christ. However, as a science, it was developed in the nineteenth century by Samuel Hahnemann as "the alternative medicine", a reaction against the harmful medical practices of the time and as a replacement of allopathic medicine.

In his experiments, Hahnemann took massive doses of Cinchona (Quinine), a drug used in the treatment of malaria. To his surprise, he found that he developed symptoms similar to malaria. From this observation he developed the basic principle or first law of Homeopathy (the law of similarities). 

Following the work of Hahnemann, Meisser worked with toxic plants such as Belladonna and Arsenic. By diluting them he observed that in small quantities those toxic plants cured the illness. The second law of homeopathy was formed (the law of infinitesimal doses or potencies).

The third law of homeopathy states that the individual must be treated as a whole (Gestalt) since the body is composed of inseparable parts. These parts are mind, body, soul, vital energy and the direct relationship with nature.

Included within homeopathy are the subfields of gemmotherapy, lithotherapy, nosodes, and sarcodes - also referred to as organotherapy.

 

HOW HOMEOPATHY WORKS


Homeopathy is a healing process in which the medicines stimulate and encourage the body's natural healing forces of recovery.

The homeopathic principle of treating like with like is based on treating an illness with a substance that produces, in a healthy individual, similar symptoms to those experienced by the sick person. Conventional medicine believes that symptoms are caused by the illness and seeks to suppress them. Homeopathy sees the symptoms as the body's natural reaction in fighting the illness and seeks to stimulate them rather than suppress them. For example, as described above, if a healthy person takes Cinchona he will develop fever, weakness, and yellowing of the skin every three to four days. When a person displaying these symptoms takes the same medicine the symptoms will disappear. In fact Dr. Hahnemann prescribed homeopathic remedies during the plague in Europe to one hundred and eighty patients and only two died, a difference of over fifty percent in the rate of mortality compared with allopathic medicines.

Homeopathic medicines contain a very small quantity of the active substance. This quantity is called POTENCY and is prepared in a special way. These high dilutions not only enhance the body's curative capacity, but also help to avoid undesirable side effects

Homeopathic medicines are non-addictive. They are completely safe for babies, children and the elderly and produce no adverse side effects

 

WHAT THE MEDICINES ARE LIKE


There are more than 2,000 homeopathic medicines. They are similar in appearance to other medicines, but are completely different in their preparation and action.

They are usually presented in the form of granules, tablets or liquids and are prepared in modern laboratories under scientific conditions to the highest standards of quality. They contain pure animal, vegetable or mineral substances that are listed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States. Granules and tablets are sweet tasting and dissolve easily.

 

HOW THE MEDICINES ARE TAKEN


The granules should be allowed to dissolve in the mouth or under the tongue, preferably free from tobacco or flavored substances. Medicines are best taken a substantial time prior to food or drink.

The frequency and potency of dosage may vary according to the type of condition, and should be recommended by your health care practitioner. The potency of homeopathic medicine is denoted by a number after the name, usually described as:

Designation Scale Method of Attenuation
X or D Decimal (1/10) Hanemannian
CH or C Centesimal (1/100)  Hanemannian
CK or K Centesimal (1/100) Korsakovian
LM Fifty Millesimal (1/50,000)  Hanemannian

For example: Uva Ursi 6X, Kidney 7CH, Rose Hips 4X, Erythraea 4X. 

For homeopathic remedies to be the most effective, proper diet, regular exercise, adequate sleep and relaxation should be included. Avoid handling the granules to avoid contamination. Tip them into the cap of the container or use a clean spoon. Keep the medicines in a cool, dark place and away from strong odors. After the condition is cleared, the dosing should be stopped They will remain effective for several years.

 

ORGANOTHERAPY


Organotherapy is also known as SARCODES, or MODERN HOMEOPATHY. It is sometimes referred to as CELLULAR HOMEOPATHY. It consists of homeopathic preparations of wholesome organs, tissues or metabolic factors obtained from healthy specimens, usually sheep and calves. 

This type of homeopathy was introduced in the 1930s by the English Physician, Dr. Conan, for the treatment of acute or chronic diseases of the digestive system. It was later extended to other pathologies. Next, a French physician Dr. Nobel used secretions of insulin hormone produced by the pancreas for the treatment of diabetes. He later used other substances for the treatment of a variety of conditions with great success. Immediately after this introduction, Organ Homeopathy became widely used due to its simplistic approach and phenomenal results

There are two laws inherent to this form of homeopathy:

A cell of an organ will act only on that specific organ ,e.g.: Hyperthyroidism can be controlled with the complex Thyroid which produces the hormones T3 and T4 which act in both the growing process and energetic metabolism of the individual.
Organ homeopathy possess triphasic properties: Low potencies such as 4C, or 5C will stimulate the organ. A 7C potency will regulate the organ. High potencies such as 9C, 12C and 30C will inhibit the organ.

Unlike classical homeopathy, organotherapy does not have to be stopped once symptoms have disappeared. On the contrary, it should be taken for at least three months in order to produce desired results.

Organotherapy was introduced into the United States by the founder of Homeopathy & Herbal Laboratories, Inc./MyA International Laboratories, Inc. in 1994. As in France, decades earlier, it has been received with great success.

For more information refer to, among others, the work of Dr. Max Tetau, MD; Calud Berge, MD (Ret); and Lea de Matos, MD.

 

ORGAN IMMUNOLOGY


Dynamized organ therapy is a therapeutic method based on the Hippocratic tradition. Small doses of an animal organ are administered after being diluted and dynamized. This then acts on the corresponding human organ.

In the presence of any dysfunction of an organ, the corresponding healthy organ from an animal is recommended. The healthy organ, diluted and dynamized, acts on the perturbed human organ, assisting it in returning to its normal functioning. This technique could be considered analogous to the method of Hahnemann, although it is not the same Homeopathic doctrine.

The weak quantity, or dose, administered is justifiable because the dynamized and diluted organ will create an immunologic process, more precisely auto-immunology.

The diluted and dynamized organotherapy products of Homeopathy & Herbal Laboratories, Inc. /MyA International Laboratories, Inc. are conceived according to the general principles of immunology.

Based on the theory of the antibodies (immune pathology), when there is a specific need at the cellular and glandular level, the sick organ or gland remembers its healthful state. Therefore, when introduced to the diluted dose, made of a corresponding healthy organ or gland, its memory will be activated to correct for its immune pathology. The recuperation process begins.

Organ immunology is therapy that activates the glands and organs by using diluted and dynamized organsr to repair and regenerate their structure and function.

This treatment technique, due to its specificity, cannot cause a dangerous deterioration of health. If an error occurs in the dosage or remedy, it can be easily determined and quickly corrected. The physiological recuperation of the sick person is thus expedited once proper diagnosis and dosage is determined through simple analysis of system response.

 

SPECIFIC IMMUNOLOGY


The immune therapeutic complexes of Homeopathy & Herbal Laboratories, Inc. / MyA International Laboratories, Inc. have been prepared with the most advanced knowledge in the field of organ immunology. These complexes are completely safe and produce surprising results in normalizing the system.

Their use is simple. Considering only the principal symptoms, proper remedies can be easily determined. In most situations a combination of immune therapeutic complexes is recommended.

Example: A twelve year old male has a growing problem due to both an inadequacy at the glandular level and a respective response by the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems.

Recommendation:
  • Immune Therapy 76 - Complex Testicle / Thymus (stimulator of male growth)
  • Immune Therapy 68- Complex Testiculum (regulator of male hormones)
  • Immune Therapy 07- Complex Bone Whole (stimulator of skeletal system growth)
The results are exceptional. Through immunology therapy, the structure of the organs and ailing tissues recover significantly.

 

BASIC METHOD


In the immune therapy complexes there are specific products of universal usage. In this basic method, the formation of which is systematic, a specific immune therapy complex is taken in conjunction with other specific complexes. Such as the following:

IMMUNE THERAPY 04- COMPLEX LIVER / INTESTINE

Pathology Iatrogenic. Whenever it is necessary to make an in depth general cleaning.

IMMUNE THERAPY 41- COMPLEX CONJUNCTIVE FABRIC

Pathology Degenerative. Action general regenerator. Anti-aging.

IMMUNE THERAPY 78- COMPLEX S. R. E.

Pathology Infectious, Chronic and Inflammatory. Whenever infections or inflammations exist, there is a general weakness of the immune system.

IMMUNE THERAPY 17- COMPLEX DIENCEPHALON

Pathology Neuro-Vegetative. Whenever dystonia neuro-vegetative exists there will also be organic dysfunction of nerve origin.

Example: A bank teller, 35 years of age has a duodenal ulcer (peptic ulcer) of a psychosomatic origin. Any emotional change provokes gastric-duodenal symptoms.

Recommendation:

Immune Therapy 36- Stomach / Duodenum Complex 40 drops before bed-time.
Immune Therapy 17- Diencephalon Complex 40 Drops before breakfast.
