What is homeopathy?

There is much uncertainty about the mechanisms of material law applied to the living world. It can be said that with every new explanation we come to even more questions.


Even Aristotle said that there are two ways you can treat:

Similina similinum (so similar) to the homeopathic method

Contra contrarum (contrary to the contrary) to the allopathic way

The other way we have currently available and widely accepted, and the cure:

antibiotics

antihistamines

antiacid

antipyretics

antidepressants .....

All one will notice, "anti".

Such treatment is expensive, often invasive, and sometimes even harmful, technologically very demanding and can not answer many questions such as: Why do some people do certain bacteria disease, and not others, why some diseases are inherited through generations and without the possibility of genetic proof thereof, that certain mental illnesses associated with the syndrome frekfentnim other diseases within the same person ....??

There are too many of these issues.

Homeopathic approach to living organism presupposes the existence of life force, which has its own patterns of behavior, in order to maintain the functions of animal life in terms of homeostasis, or balance.This force is the intangible nature of a material nature has certain relations. Any violation of the legality of the material balance in a living being, a reaction of the life force, which tries to establish the disturbed balance, a trace of activity is visible and is called a symptom.

The effect of physician-homeopath consists in the fact that on the basis of such evidence, ie. symptoms, decides what is harmful to the energy seemed to find similinum (similarity) for such energy, that the present similinum life force, a life force will then respond to the needs and how to balance. So, how can we become ill, so we can be cured!

The beauty of this method is that a man treat himself with the help of their life (vital) force, for which it serves, that the non-invasive methods, and to influence the healing life force is noticeable only in cured patients, but also for his work and the environment. Healing of a man, for some millimicrons is treated and humanity.

This method fits quite nicely into modern medicine treatment methods.

It sounds very simple, but it is not ....



What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is an effective, scientific system of healing. The word homeopathy comes from the Greek words "homeo", ie. similar and "pathos" - suffering which would mean a similar disease or suffering.Homeopathy is based on the law of similarity, which reads "Similia similibus Curentur" or "like cures like it."


History
The concept of 'like cures like it "is known since the time of Hippocrates, who claimed that the disease can be treated in two ways: opposite or similar means in relation to the disease. Treatment is similar substance is mentioned also in Veda Vyas.

On the principle of opposites, evolved galenic pharmacology and traditional medicine.

The principle of similarity is preserved in folk medicine for centuries, and by Paracelsus in the 16thcentury tried to put into practice, but little success.

Late 18th century German scientist, physician and chemist Samuel Hahnemann polyglot (1755-1843), founded on the law of similarity comprehensive philosophy and principles of treatment, and called to homeopathy. Such, Hahnemannovu homeopathy practiced today by hundreds of thousands of therapists around the world under the name of classical homeopathy



As Hahnemann came to the brilliant discoveries in the course of his life and shaped the life of an entire science?

Working as a doctor was not satisfied with the results of the medicine of his time, and because he failed his daughter cured of diphtheria, disappointed he withdrew from practice and dealt with, among other things, translating medical literature. Translating pharmacological famous work, kulenova Matter Medika, considered stupid explanation that healing comes from the bitter quinine taste the medicine. We do not know why, but decided to try the effect of quinine on himself even though he was completely healthy. I took him several days in high doses, and developed symptoms very similar to malaria. Video is in effect the law of similars. He concluded that quinine is effective in treating malaria because it can cause similar symptoms in healthy people and the law of similars to treat the same symptoms in sick people.

He continued to experiment and 1810. gone public with his most important work "Organon medical skills," which was soon translated into all major European languages, has undergone six editions, and it is set forth in detail the philosophy, laws and principles of homeopathy. Although the first edition has been almost 200 years, Organon, and today is the cornerstone of homeopathic education.

That same year Hahnemann emphasized healing the sick with typhus after the Napoleonic conquest and became a lecturer at the Leipzig University, where he vigorously denounced the then drastic methods of treatment and continued to publish his most important works.

In the thirties of the 19th century Europe is sweeping the severe cholera epidemic. The mortality rate was over 55%. Hahenmann advised the use of homeopathic medicines as well as disinfection and destruction of contaminated material long before the work of Pasteur and Koch. Homeopathic treatment the mortality was reduced to 2.4 to 21.1%. Homeopathy is the time gained ardent supporters among the people, the aristocracy and a smaller part of the medical profession.

Began to open up the homeopathic hospitals in the English Parliament decided that homeopathy becomes parallel medical system that remains in effect today and the English royal family from then until now has homeopath in the medical team.

For thirty years the followers of Hahnemann homeopathy expanded throughout Western Europe and America by opening hospitals and colleges.

There is no doubt that Hahnemann was a great scientist. He introduced into medicine
- Experiment
- Prescribe the exact manner of research,
- The first in the history of medicine formulated laws and principles of treatment,
- Said many discoveries in medicine, for example. genetic factors of Mendel,
- His methods proved successful in practice,

Yet because of conflicts with his colleagues, doctors and pharmacists, had to leave the native Germany 1835th and moved with his family in Paris.

Hahnemann was his whole life to the foundation of this science. From his time until now nothing has changed in the principles and philosophy of homeopathy. Only the constantly expanding list of proven homeopathic remedies and practices are increasingly using current knowledge of the psychological aspects of personality.

His ideas have exceeded the tolerance or favorable social climate of 18th century occurred under the influence of the movement "Enlightenment which spawned numerous scientific discoveries and artistic achievements.

He had many loyal followers and a lot of angry opponents. Hahnemann ideas have been advanced for several centuries. We believe that the final scientific verification of homeopathy to achieve the early 21stcentury thanks to the progress of quantum physics.

The development of medicine took place in accordance with the applicable Newtonian mechanistic and materialistic concept of the knowledge of the world so that Pasteur's research on the nature of the microbes was acceptable Hahnemanovog energy concept.

In the early 20th century homeopathy has experienced its first rise, then its popularity is slowly losing the race with the rapid technological progress that has been caught and medicine. The relationship between medicine and homeopathy were included and of course the inevitable game of financial and other interests that went to the detriment of homeopathy as it was not interesting from the standpoint of profit.

At the beginning of the century Rockefeller were treated homeopathic and wanted to invest money in the development of homeopathy, but their financial advisor has recommended investment in the pharmaceutical industry and thus likely involved in determining historical trends.

Homeopathic hospitals and schools remained more frequently without financial resources and were forced to work to reduce or even close.

Homeopathy is a major challenge for science and philosophy, but premature. Doctors who have had anything to do with homeopathy were expelled from professional associations, banned their work, and the medical schools did not dare mention the word.

Homeopathy has survived the hard times due to the large number of homeopaths who were independent at school and practice, ie. were doctors of modern medicine. His survival owes homeopathy also protect you from its inception was in aristocratic circles, especially in the British royal family as well as intellectual and artistic elite of Europe in the 19th century. For example. Van Gogh's famous canvas, sold for 82.5 million dollars, is his friend and homeopath Dr. Gachet.

In the early 70s of the 20th century homeopathy is experiencing a renaissance, across the planet, except perhaps in China for thousands of years where there is continuity in the implementation of holistic therapy.

It is interesting to mention that a Greek, who is a civil engineer, George Vithoulkas, was the one who initiated the renaissance homepatije. He is certainly the most homeopaths 20th century, educated homeopathy is all important in the world today, and for his work received the alternative Nobel Prize.
