Dr. Julian Whitaker’s Health & Healing May 1995; Supplement Homeopathy—New Age, But Not New By Jan Heimlich, Associate Editor

“What is Homeopathy?”

“Homeopathy is a system of medicine that uses tiny doses of natural substances to stimulate the body’s own healing powers.  The term homeopathy comes from the Greek words Homoios (“similar”) and pathos (“suffering” or “sickness).

Homeopathic principles are older than Hippocrates himself, and have remained unchanged since they were formulated by German physician and pharmacologist Samuel Hahnemann in the early 1800’s.  Today, it’s practiced world-wide.  In France, one-third of family physicians prescribe homeopathic medicines; in Germany, 20%.  In great Britain, members of the Royal Family have been homeopathic patients since the time of Queen Victoria.  And in India, there are 120 homeopathic medical schools.

Homeopathy was enormously popular in America during the latter half of the 19th century.  At a time when allopathic or conventional doctors subjected their patients to bloodletting and leeches and dosed them with a mercury-laden purge, homeopathy was the choice of the elite.  (In the movie Little Women, Beth, when stricken with scarlet fever, is given Belladonna, a common homeopathic remedy.)

The advent of “scientific” medicine in the early 1900’s overshadowed homeopathy, but the recent resurgence of natural medicine has brought this age-old form of healing back to the fore.  In fact, according to the Chain Drug Review, “Homeopathic medicine is regarded as the single fastest-growing category in drug stores.”  Walgreen Company, Thrifty Payless, and Medicine-Shoppe International have introduced homeopathic remedies at some of their outlets, while Eckerd Corp. carries homeopathic remedies in all its 2,000 stores.

To benefit fully from homeopathy, whether you’re treating yourself or family members, you should first understand its principles and how they differ from conventional medicine or allopathy.”

Homeopathic Treatment for Chronic Disease: A 6-Year, University-Hospital Outpatient Observational Study

Conclusions: Homeopathic intervention offered positive health changes to a substantial proportion of a large cohort of patients with a wide range of chronic diseases. Additional observational research, including studies using different designs, is necessary for further research development in homeopathy.

NaturalNews Tuesday, October 05, 2010 by: Tony Isaacs Nobel Scientist Discovers Scientific Basis of Homeopathy

“At a time when the British Medical Association is calling for an end to national funding for homeopathy and detractors are describing it as “nonsense on stilts”, a Nobel prize-winning scientist has made a discovery that suggests that homeopathy does have a scientific basis after all. In July, Nobel Prize winning French virologist Professor Luc Montagnier shocked fellow Nobel prize-winners and the medical establishment by telling them that he had discovered that water has a memory that continues even after many dilutions.”

Lectures on Homoeopathic Philosophy, Sixth edition by Dr. James Tyler Kent, MD Emphasis by Karen M. Diefenbach

“Allopath’s are really taking the sequence for the consequence, thus leading to a false theory, the bacteria theory.  You may destroy the bacteria and yet not destroy the disease.  The susceptibility remains the same, and only those that are susceptible will take the disease.  Bacteria have a use, and there is nothing sent on earth to destroy man.  The bacteria theory would make it appear that the all-wise Creator (or Great Nature) has sent these micro-organisms here to make man sick.  We see from this paragraph that Hahnemann did not adopt any such theory as bacteriology.”

“We know that a dissecting wound is very serious if the body dissected is recently dead and this we would supposed to be due to some bacteria of wonderful power capable of establishing such a dreadful erysipelatous poisoning that would go into man’s blood and strike him down with a sort of septicemia.  In truth, soon after death, we have a ptomaine poison, the dead body poison, which is alkaloid in character, but we do not yet discover the presence of bacteria.  The poison is there, and if a man pricks himself while dissecting the body and does not take care of the wound he may have a serious illness and die.  But if after the cadaver has remained some time and become infected with bacteria, the dissector pricks himself and the wound is not dangerous.”
