Homeopathy at Harmony Health Massage & Wellness Spa
In this blog I would like to explain the concepts of health and healing with this complementary health system. I say it is complementary for a specific reason; homeopathy can never be alternative as these remedies can never surgically repair a broken bone. Homeopathy does cover a very wide scope of practice for both acute and chronic disease.
What is an acute? That is a self-limiting disease that is unlikely to kill you, such as a cough, cold, minor burn etc.
What is a chronic? This is a deeper disease state, such as arthritis, asthma, eczema, which are diseases of the vital body organs or the structure itself.
Both acute and chronic disease can be treated with homeopathic medicine. It has a very wide range of benefits, as all trained homeopaths do treat the whole person, not the disease. This is a very important statement within the healing system of homeopathy.
So, what is the difference between herbal medicine and homeopathy? This seems to be an area of confusion, and one I would love to clarify for my readers. Both herbalists and homeopaths use many of the same tinctures but their preparation is what differentiates the two practices. In homeopathy, we use tinctures in very high dilutions, so there is only the energy (vibration) of the original substance; this renders the remedy very potent, as it works in a different way in the body than an herbal tincture. Homeopathic preparation gives us the opportunity to shift emotional states, such as depression, anxiety, grief and so on, in a simple and sustainable way. For example, Chinese medicine works with the body’s life force called Chi, in homeopathy, we call it the body’s vital force. This is what motivates us throughout life, and keeps us in a harmonious state. In life, events happen which take us out of our natural equilibrium and homeopathy is there to bring us back to balance simply and naturally.
Since the remedies are an energetic preparation, they are extremely safe. There is no danger or toxicity, overdose and remedies can be taken alongside regular medication with no contra-indications whatsoever. Newborns, pregnant moms-to-be, and the elderly can all take homeopathy safely to balance the physical or emotional symptoms that come up.
