Today, we use those remedies plus thousands more. When a Homeopath sees the same symptoms as that of an overdose of a proved or tested remedy, such as Belladonna the symptoms of which are dry as a bone, hot as a cock, and mad as a hatter, then we give that remedy in an energy dose.
Dr Eos used Belladonna for an elderly visitor to a high plains American Indian reservation who had extreme advanced heat exhaustion and after being reversed with Belladonna 200C was able to survive without kidney damage. Similia Similibus Curentur is the Law of Similars meaning ‘Let likes by likes be cured’ and today's homeopathy is its therapeutic application.
The National Center for Homeopathy www.nationalcenterforhomeopathy.org states:
The word “homeopathic” is derived from the Greek words homeos meaning “similar” and pathos meaning “disease” or “suffering.” Thus, homeopathy means “to treat with a remedy that produces an effect similar to the disease or suffering.” Homeopaths do not treat diseases. We treat the person or animal that is displaying symptoms of sickness. The goal of the homeopath is to recognize through the unique expression of symptoms of a patient the pattern of disturbed energy and identify among the great number of remedies available the one most homeopathic, or most similar to, the patient’s disease. Since homeopathic remedies are devoid of all chemical toxicity, homeopathy is the ideal system of medicine for people of all ages, even the most sensitive like an expectant mother or a newborn baby. Difficulties during pregnancy and the delivery or its aftermath as well as all the problems experienced by the newborn can be dealt with very efficiently and without side effects with homeopathy. Patients who are already under psychotherapy find out as a rule that they recover far more rapidly after they begin homeopathic treatment.
All homeopathic remedies have one thing in common:
(1) there is nothing of a milligram amount present in the medicine, there is only the energy of the original substance, AND (2) the preparation of the remedy employs succussion. Succussion is the act of specific staccato shaking of a liquid to increase the energetic levels to, for instance, 6C, 10M or 1LM. A Belladonna 6C dosage is the supernatant liquid from a Belladonna plant-soak that is diluted 1 to 100, then succussed 100 times, and then repeated for a total of six dilutions and succussions AND THEN one drop of that preparation is placed over a large number of milk-lactose pellets. A Homeopathic Pharmacy is FDA regulated and performs the Remedy preparation.
Thus, after preparing the dilutions, there is nothing in a remedy to interact with conventional medications. There is nothing for the body to react to chemically in an immunological or autoimmune manner; only a quantum of energy has been given. With herbal preparations there are milligram amounts of the original substance. With flower essences there is not the succussions in transferring the energy to higher and higher levels of energetic frequencies.
Homeopathy is a safe, effective way to nudge the energy of a person or animal toward a health-full balance. Once the person is in balance they throw off any dis-ease they may have, no matter how advanced or deeply rooted the physical and emotional pathology may have become.
Remedy prescriptions may be (1) deduced through taking a lengthy case study of pertinent symptoms reduced to rubrics then adding the years of experience of the homeopath, (2) good guessing which is great to use in emergency situations when you have only a few remedies from which to choose, or by (3) using any form of kinesiology. The remedy prescription may come in the form of (A) little milk-lactose pellets which is the usual form, (B) a liquid formulation, (C) topicals, or (D) injectables. Oftentimes I have a person just hold the remedy or keep it in their energy field, like in a pocket on their person. As long as the remedy is in the energy field, it will be recognized and continue working.
Since it is energy medicine, each application is one dose regardless of the quantity; therefore if a child takes a whole bottle of Belladonna pellets, it is one dose. And because there is no milligram amount of Belladonna in the bottle, it is only the energy of the Belladonna plant that is consumed besides the milk-lactose candy. And because the receiver of the homeopathic energy medicine needs to be susceptible to that energy for it to work, the child may have no reaction to the whole bottle of Belladonna pellets taken. If the child is susceptible to the Belladonna energy, then the child will come into even better balance than they were before the remedy! Homeopathy is safe.
At www.NationalCenterForHomeopathy.org it says:
With the appropriate homeopathic treatment, people recover from infectious diseases, even the most serious ones, gently and rapidly. During past great epidemics such as diphtheria, scarlet fever, typhoid, cholera, yellow fever, malaria, etc., homeopathy decreased mortality by 10 to 30 times versus conventional medicine. During the infamous Spanish flu epidemic of 1918-19, it has been estimated that 25 to 50 million people died worldwide. In the United States alone, 550,000 died, approximately 10% of the people afflicted with the flu. Homeopathic physicians documented then more than 62,000 patients treated with homeopathy resulting in a mortality of 0.7%. For people who were sick enough to be hospitalized, conventional medicine had a mortality of 30% while with 27,000 documented hospitalized cases, homeopathy was reporting a mortality of 1.05% (Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy 1921; 13:1028-43).
