Homeopathy is a 200 year-old holistic system of healing with a remarkable safety record and a reputation for yielding excellent results. It employs small doses of naturally occurring substances, which are prescribed in accordance with the law of similars: a treatment is chosen on the basis of a homeopathic medicine’s ability to closely mimic the symptom pattern of the sick individual.
Scientifically Homeopathy it is also known as Phase Cancelling. Phase cancellation occurs when two signals of the same frequency are out of phase with each other resulting in a net reduction in the overall level of the combined signal. If two identical signals are 100% or 180 degrees out of phase they will completely cancel one another if combined.
Doctor Edward Bach, a renowned 19th century homeopath, discovered the Flower Remedies, for which he is best known.
His desire was to put medicine back into the hands of the lay person. He believed that the only way the suffering of the masses could be alleviated was to empower them to heal themselves. Dr. Bach discovered 38 different types of Bach flowers. Each Bach flower works on a specific emotion.
These emotions are divided into 7 groups: fear, uncertainty/insecurity, insufficient interest in present circumstances, loneliness, over-sensitivity to influences and ideas, despondency or despair, over-care for welfare of others.
The Bach flower remedies are very gentle and are perfectly suited to the very purpose for which they were originally designed; self prescribing. One of the most important qualities of the flower remedies is that they engage the patient in their own healing, giving insight into the process.
