Homeopathy with Edel
Green Medicine is part of the theme for World Homeopathy Week (4th until 10th April 2021). Advocates of Green Medicine such as the Telosis Institute USA, American M.D. Johnathan V. Wright, Hospitals for Health(H2E)USA want to develop coaches and practitioners who work with life stories in a way that promote deep lasting healing in the individual, the organisations and in the community.
Protecting our right to natural health care and deepening the field of integrative Health and Medicine is important in the philosopy of Green Medicine. Healing practices such as homeopathy, health coaching and flower essence therapy are amoung the many therapies that are sustainable into the future and while less well known offer a real health choice for people looking to enhance their health and stay well naturally.
When our bodies are not working properly then we should be looking for the substances and energy to bring ourselves back to balance. Dr. Samual Hahnemann talked in his book, the Organon of the Medical Art, about this energy as the ‘Vital Force’. In Aphorism 71 he talked about homeopathic medicines, ‘that engender symptoms most similar to the totality of disease are the only medicines that produce a cure of disease’. The Homeopath’s, at interview with the client, will tease out these symptoms and match them with a suitable similar remedy. The choosen remedy awakens the person’s own self healing abilities within their body.
Homeopathic medicines(remedies) are tested on healthy people. This is called a ‘proving’. The symptom’s experienced by the ‘provers’ are collated and the remedy is identified for general use. Examples of well known homeopathic medicines are Arnica, Calendula and the Bach Flower Remedies.
Naturally occuring substances become remedies through a very specific process called ‘potentization’ that involves sequential dilution and succussion(hard pounding and shaking). The fascinating and scientifically confusing thing about homeopathyic remedies is that the more diluted they are, the stronger they become. Homeopathy is considered a process that works through sub molecular interventions.(Quantum Physics)
Homeopathy is a holistic therapy. It gets to the root of illness by understanding the mind body relationship. The clients ‘story’ is important because the whole is more than the sum of the parts. Hahnemann wrote about the ‘spirit-life force’ or the ‘Vital Force’ enlivens the person and is dynamic. When this life force is mistuned then the person falls ill. Homeopathic medicines are capable of bringing healing because the medicine is similar to the person’s mistunement.(Aphorism 10/11)
Many Homeopaths are members of their own regulatory body thus assuring clients of their high standards of practice. In Ireland, the Irish Society of Homeopaths(ISH) provides such regulation and also ensures support for individual practitioners. The ISH is recognised by Health Insurance Companies who refer to them for their list of registered homeopaths.
The Irish Society of Homeopaths is a member of the European Central Council of Homeopaths (ECCH). The ECCH focuses it’s representational activities within the European Union representing Homeopaths politically in terms of recognition and public policy. The ISH also has connections internationally with countries such as USA, Canada, Australia, India and further afield.
How we treat ourselves in wellness and in illness matters. Studies in the USA show that between 2002 and 2007 there was a 14% increase in the uptake Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (Cam) therapies such as Homeopathy, flower essences and health coaching. This figure speaks for itself in a positive way. People are voting with their feet that these therapies can and do offer them the space to heal themselves, return to a balanced energy in a sustainable way using and using techniques from our ancesters that are safe and reliable. That makes Cam Therapies such as Homeopahthy a real health choice in a modern world.
