Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
There's water everywhere, and anti-homeopathy jokes aplenty. Don't get me wrong, I like a sense of humour in a person and can laugh at myself, and often may happily wonder about how this wonderful medicine can work.
The thing is what I really don't like is dishonesty, denial of openness to investigate truth and ignorance (in a rude way not in a not knowing way). So the 'oh there's homeopathy flooding everywhere', 'turn on your tap and get your remedy' type comments, well frankly they're pretty pointless.
Because? They're so way off the mark of accuracy it's just about laughable. Yes homeopathy is diluted, yes frequently water is used as a carrier. Is that all it is? Well no. Substances are selected on a basis of similarity 'like cures like', which is a law that has more than stood the test of time. Conventional medicine even uses homeopathic (homeo=like, pathos=suffering) approaches, and appears to be doing so with increasing frequency. Ritalin use, some chemotherapeutic agents and peanut allergy treatment are both examples of the philosophy behind homeopathy in practice.
Without this homeopathy, well isn't homeopathy. We may have catching up to do on the finer mechanism and describing that to the public. I'm happy to sit back and leave that to the research scientists who are doing just that. Have a look at www.hri-research.org. What I can do, and love doing, is seeing the beauty of what those simple rules translate to.
Less is indeed more. I've seen one client who is saving the NHS around £1000 a year with not needing medication she'd been prescribed due to using homeopathy (as always the drugs reduced unders doctors guidance now she's able to do so).
Like really does appear to resonate with like. And, how funny, for over 2000 years this has been thought to be so. Now what's the new medicine?! I think the homeopathic philosophies have, and indeed, are standing the test of time.
I'm a Homeopath working in the Skipton (North Yorkshire) area. I am also able to offer food intolerance testing using Kinesiology and advice around diet and lifestyle.
