Homeopathy – Low Dosage Medicine by Dr. Tsan
Homeopathy is an effective natural method of treatment. As a herbalist, my colleague and Yelena Galante saw dozens, if not hundreds, of clients who came to her asking for advice about homeopathic medicine. They are usually shocked when she tells them that she is not a homeopath and that she has limited knowledge in this subject. She always recommends that the patients see me for a qualified answer.
The difference between herbal remedies and homeopathy is that herbal medicine only uses plants whereas homeopathy uses plants and animals, such as the cuttlefish, Viper, or honey bee, and minerals such as calcium carbonate, charcoal, or graphite. In herbal medicine, tinctures are made by infusing herbs either fresh or dried, in water. This process also called dilution helps to extract the ingredients’ beneficial properties so they remain in the crystal structure of water. Depending on the degree of dilution this process takes from several weeks to several months.
Low dosage principle in homeopathy
To understand what kind of low dosage homeopathy uses to think about the following calculation:
Dilution 4x is the same as one part of an ingredient in ten thousand parts of water. Dilution 6x is equivalent the one portion of medicine dissolved in a million measures of water, and dilution 12x is equivalent to one share per trillion shares.

History of Homeopathy
Founded in the early 19th century by German physician and chemist Samuel Hahnemann, homeopathy is based on the cardinal principle that similars cure similars (often stated as “like cures like”). Hahnemann found that giving a homeopathic remedy to a healthy patient caused specific symptoms; he called this “proving” the remedy. He then found that giving a small dose of the remedy to a patient exhibiting those same symptoms would prod the body into self-healing action, but a dose that was too large would cause an aggravation of the symptoms. Choosing the appropriate homeopathic remedy relies heavily on the symptoms of every patient individually. For example, two patients may have the same type of cough, but one will be worse at night and the other will be worse in the morning, thus they may each be given a different remedy.
Stephen Cummings, M.D. and Dana Ullman, M.P.H., authors of Everybody’s Guide to Homeopathic Medicines, 1991 state, “Homeopathy is a 200-year-old medical system you can use at home to help treat family members with a wide spectrum of acute health problems. It offers a way to gently stimulate your inner healing resources through recognizing and reinforcing the adaptively react reaction she body’s natural defenses. By choosing the correct, individually suited homeopathic medicine from the plant, mineral, animal, or chemical kingdom, you can successfully stimulate the body’s own defenses… You can complement your family’s efforts toward good health with these safe, natural medicines that provide an effective, inexpensive alternative to conventional medicine”
Principles of classic homeopathy
According to Hahnemann and other classical homeopaths, the most applicable medicine should be administered in a single dose and the changes in the symptoms of the patients should be observed over a period of several days. If the medicine and potency are correct then, at first, the mental and general symptoms will be cured and only then symptoms particular to the disease will be cured. This ensures a cure of the highest order. Classical homeopaths believe that administering medicines based on symptoms particular to the disease by disregarding mental and general symptoms will either lead to total failure or at the most a temporary remission of the disease symptoms especially in the case of chronic disease. Some modern homeopaths have also considered more esoteric substances, known as “imponderables” because they do not originate from the material but from electromagnetic energy presumed to have been “captured” by alcohol or lactose. Examples include X-rays, sunlight, and electricity. Recent ventures by homeopaths into even more esoteric substances include thunderstorms (prepared from collected rainwater). Today there are about 3,000 different remedies commonly used in homeopathy.
How Homeopathy Works
Homeopathic treatment is not really understood by most individuals. Subsequently, the explanation intended to make you understand exactly what Homeopathic is and how it works will be discussed.
Presently, there are two major types of physics of which humans know about, even though they may not be really understood. The first is Newtonian physics built on Newton’s Law. This emphasizes the matter entirely, which are physical entities or materials.
Homeopathic medicine is related to this concept. For instance, your body can be seen as an automobile. If your vehicle stops moving, usually, a certain part can be replaced with another working part that fixes the issue. This is where the concept of getting rid of somebody’s parts and replacing these parts with another part comes from. But this concept only relates to the effect, do not ignore the importance of the effect, which is the cause. This is the reason why several conditions return.
On the other hand, Quantum physics is relatively new and not really understood by many people except by some physics geniuses. To make it really simple to understand, quantum physics deals with the unseen, the non-material areas of the universe. This idea can be a thought-provoking because modern human is not familiar with things outside the material aspects of the universe.
Nevertheless, it can be described easily by a straightforward physics experiment most students practiced at school. When some iron filings are added to the surface of a paper, the iron filings will move from place to place depending on the way you move the paper, in accordance with the Law of Gravity. If you place a magnet below the sheet of paper, the iron filings will be drawn to the magnetic field and form order. Hence, this magnetic field is powerful than the force of gravity and they won’t be tilted off the paper easily. This magnetic field cannot be seen. It is these invisible forces or energies that generate matter.
Now, consider other forms of forces you can’t see, but you understand them. For example, we can feel and understand love, pain, and anger. Since we can feel the impact of these energetic forces, we know that they exist. Homeopathic medicines get the energy for treating diseases from the source material. This will eventually trigger a curative response that cannot be seen but the effects are noticeable. Homeopathic healing works and it deals directly with the source of the problem, not the effect.
Finally, Homeopathic medicines usually include materials from animals, plants, minerals, and some synthetic sources. Many homeopathic treatment practices utilize the ingredients in their medicines recognized as imponderables, electromagnetic energies are generated from these sources and they are captured with either lactose or alcohol. All of these constituents are later mixed to yield diluted solutions, which are used to attract the balance of the energetic force within the body in a certain direction. This energetic force then impacts all the things in the body from the body’s mental state to the immune system and can be useful for treating diseases, physical injury, pain, depression, and anxiety.
Homeopathy is very useful in eradicating chronic and relapsing conditions.
Homeopathy doesn’t treat the ‘disease in man’ but it treats the ‘man in disease’. Homeopathy treats the cause of the disease so that the illness will disappear.
The principle of homeopathy is that appropriate amounts of safe, non-toxic, natural substances that are derived from the mineral, plant, and animal kingdoms can be used to activate the law of similars. This basic law of homeopathy is “similia similibus current” or ‘let likes be cured with like’. The first homeopathic principle states that any substance that can make you ill can also cure you – anything that is capable of producing symptoms of disease in a healthy person can cure those symptoms in sick people.
Example of the use of homeopathic remedies.
For example, A person who chops an onion can develop watery eyes, a runny nose, sneezing, coughing, and throat irritation from exposure to the onion’s active substances.
The homeopathic remedy, Allium cepa, made of red onion, can help the body overcome a cold or allergy attack in which the person has similar symptoms (watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, or throat irritation.)
The most common remedy that has historically addressed poisoning, even low levels poisoning is Natrum muriaticum 6x, (Nat Mur). The area that Nat Mur 6x covers is one of extreme sensitivity. For someone who suffers from being around perfumes, cigarette smoke, and chemicals, particularly if mercury is associated with their illness, Nat Mur should be strongly considered. It may take time and patience, but Nat Mur 6x can address the associated issues. This is one of the few remedies that could be recommended for most people who have been exposed to mercury with reasonable accuracy. It could be taken daily for weeks.
One of the other popular homeopathic medicines includes the use of sulfur to remove moles. The doctor often looks for symptoms like burning all through the body or itching which is often aggravated when it is continuously scratched.
Carbo Vegatabilis this medicine is normally given to people who the doctor finds to be lazy, thereby resulting in moles that are rose-colored in nature.
Lachesis Mutus: This is a good remedy for women who wake up from hot flashes. She feels hot all the time. This remedy bests suits women who are talkative, jealous, and suspicious. Because of this, she prefers to be alone and may be especially depressed in the morning. Symptoms are better in the open air and after emotional outbursts, but worse during and after sleep, in warmth, and in the sunlight. The Homeopathic protocol for each patient is based on several factors: a person’s physical symptoms, personality traits, spiritual and mental state. Emotions like grief, sadness, anger, resentment, fear, panic all have a negative influence on how the body functions which leads to imbalances and then to disease. Personality traits that hold in emotions and anger have more health problems than people who can better express their feelings. Alternative medicine treats the whole body not just symptoms to achieve healing that comes from cell level. All of this is considered in homeopathic medicine.
Preparation of homeopathic remedies.
Once the most suitable medicine has been selected it is either taken as drops or as sugar globules soaked in the medicine. With society’s standards, notably North America’s medical school of thought, the public has been trained to view their health in a restrictive manner. Patients have become accustomed to going to the doctor for a quick visit to fix a particular symptom. This leads to an expectation of immediate results through the suppression of their symptoms. Allopathic medicine may still be dominant in some countries but as more people realize the scars it leaves, alternative medicine begins to pave the way. As more and more people experience this inner transformation, health will no longer be taken for granted, instead, it will become a way of life for many.
Despite a history of over suppression and a continued struggle to design scientific trials that can accurately evaluate the efficiency of homeopathic medicine, homeopathy is gaining popularity in the United States. Interestingly enough, the increase in the popularity of homeopathy may be largely attributed to the widening availability of over-the-counter combination homeopathic medicines that provide patients with the opportunity to treat themselves. The primary goals at my homeopathic clinic are to identify and treat the underlying root cause of your problems. If you are experienced in using homeopathic remedies and especially if you already work with a qualified homeopathic doctor for other health issues or to stay healthy, then approaching a homeopath about your other medical syndromes may improve your condition. The benefits of homeopathy are far-reaching. Simply put, it is safe, natural, and effective. Homeopathy also stimulates the immune system, helps prevent illness, and supports the person as a whole rather than suppressing symptoms.
Guideline for Homeopathic Medicine
Homeopathic remedies are controlled as medications under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA). Nevertheless, under the existing Agency policy, FDA does not assess homeopathic medicines for side effects or efficiency. FDA administration guidelines for homeopathic remedies are defined in “FDA’s Obedience Policy Guide authorized State of affairs” under which Homeopathic Medications Maybe Promoted (CPG 7132.15).
FDA requirements for homeopathic remedies.
FDA permits homeopathic medicines that run into confident conditions to be advertised without bureau permission. For instance, homeopathic medicines must consist of active components that are recorded in the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States (HPUS). The HPUS records active elements that may be officially contained within homeopathic remedies and criteria for power, superiority, and cleanliness of that element. Also, the FDA necessitates that the sticker on the item for consumption, exterior ampule, or supplementary brochure contain at least one key indicator, a list of components, the number of times the major element(s) was watered down, and instructions for consumption. If a homeopathic medicine claims to heal a severe illness such as sarcoma, or cardiac arrest, or asthma, it required being retained by prescription. However, medicines for insignificant medical disorders, like sneezing, sore throat, or back pain that most of the time considered self-healed, require no prescription and usually sold at health food stores.
Homeopathy also does not have side effects, so it is safe for infants, children, adults, and seniors.
Homeopathy also can be used safely in conjunction with conventional medication. Homeopathy medicine is absolutely safe and has been used successfully in not only treating children and infants but also pregnant women as well. In fact, it can even be used on our beloved pets.
Homeopathy is an alternative mode of medical art and almost all medical conditions can be effectively treated by this system.
