How Can Homeopathy Keep Your Family Healthy?

Homeopathy is a mystery to many, but growing in popularity in the US and many other places. It is a science of healing based on the principle that “like cures like.” Suppose a person has a cold with watery eyes and a burning nasal discharge. These manifesting symptoms represent the body’s attempt to restore itself to health. The homeopathic remedy Allium Cepa (Latin for onion) might be given because onion causes watery eyes and a burning nasal discharge. 

Starting with newborns and progressing through the teen years, parents can use homeopathy to treat a wide range of acute conditions that arise in the family. From colic and teething, to earaches and sore throats, to diarrhea and vomiting, to first aid and minor injuries; and, perhaps, moodiness in teenagers, parents can utilize the effective and safe action of homeopathic remedies.

To learn how homeopathy can benefit you and your family, you are invited to two presentations by Homeopath and author Shelley Keneipp, MH, author of The Practical Guide to Homeopathy for Children: Keeping Your Family Healthy Naturally and Safely: “Homeopathy for Newborns to Teens.” The events are:

Less is More

In the case of homeopathy, “less is better and more powerful.” Remedies stimulate and strengthen the body’s vital force and help the body restore its balance through the use of a minute dose of a substance.

Homeopathy treats the whole person ─ physically, emotionally and mentally, and sees each person as an individual. Each of us suffers from health conditions in our own unique way. Homeopathy looks at a person’s unique symptoms: Chilly or hot? Nose running or stuffed up and what color is the discharge? Did the cold follow stress, anger, or loss of sleep? Homeopathic remedies are chosen based on the best match to the person’s unique set of symptoms and causation factors.  

Most homeopathic remedies are taken from plants, minerals and animals. Remedies are free of any toxic side-effects and safe and gentle enough for infants and children. No remedies have ever had to be taken off the market because of damaging side-effects. They are not addictive and never tested on animals.

Dates Back Over 200 Years

Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician considered the father of Medicine, stated: “there are two ways of treating ill health: the Law of Opposites and the Law of Similars.” In 1796, a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann based his approach to healing on the principles of the Law of Similars set forth by Hippocrates, and homeopathy was born. The word “homeopathy” comes from the Greek words homoios and patheia which translates into “similar suffering.”
 
200 years of clinical experience along with modern research published in The Lancet (10/86), Pediatrics (5/94), British Medical Journal (2/9/91) and British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology (3/89 & 9/80) have confirmed homeopathy’s effectiveness, including double-blind clinical trials.  Homeopathy is advocated by the World Health Organization and its use is commonplace in countries around the world. Its use is growing rapidly in the U.S. American consumers of homeopathy date back to families journeying to the West in wagon trains, Mark Twain and John D. Rockefeller, Sr.

I've used homeopathy for many years for chronic conditions, acute illnesses and injuries with such success, satisfaction and safety that it's now my primary form of medicine. When I was struggling with debilitating and frustrating chronic insomnia con med could only offer addictive pills. My homeopath was able to gently, safely and permanently solve my problem. Today I sleep well and wake up refreshed and ready for the day to come. Homeopathy is famous for its cures of chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, diseases considered incurable in conventional medicine. To see hundreds of cured case records of conditions from cancer to coma to gangrene to addiction to Rx drugs google "homeopathy cured cases". See also: www.pbhrfindia.org - click on "Case Studies" for cures of various cancers Homeopathy has been proven in large studies and in 250 years of clinical use to be safe for infants, children, nursing mothers and pregnant women. http://homeopathyresource.wordpress.com/2009/01/05/extensive-study-concludes-homeopathic-remedies-are-safe/ With a little study the lay person can treat themselves and their families at home quickly, effectively and inexpensively for self-limiting conditions like colds and sore throats. Anyone who finds homeopathy has a friend for life!

Wishing you all the best for this program. Many parents desire to learn how to care for the family in the most gentle, safe and effective means without resorting to drugs and side effects. In addition, homeopathy can cut illness short and even strengthen the immune system based upon individualized medicine for each child. Some possible observations into caring for child and infant were written by Dr Saraswat http://homeopathyworldcommunity.com/forum/topics/case-taking-of-infants Blessings, Debby

My family and I have been benefiting from homeopathy for the past 44 years.

My family has used homeopathy for both acute and chronic problems with the aid of a homeopath for the past 25 years. Homeopathic medicine has never disappointed me. I always share positive stories of homeopathic successess, including this true case history: Congestive Cardiac Failure with Pre-renal Acute Renal Failure “CNS – Unconscious, not responding to commands, movement of LL to pain stimuli; Planters – NAD.” “Homeopathic intervention here allowed her to stabilize in the vital organs to the point where she even regained consciousness though without intact higher function and could not communicate in conversation. Her son was able to take her home with a mounting hospital bill that reduced within 10 days of homeopathic medication being started. Due to her symptomatic improvement, the allopathic drugs were also drastically reduced and she went home on a very small prescription as maintenance dose.” http://hpathy.com/clinical-cases/congestive-cardiac-failure-with-pre-renal-acute-renal-failure/

Thank you so much for sharing your personal positive experiences with Homeopathy and providing additional resources on this vital healing science.

Good information, thank you, Patti. My son made it through childhood into adulthood with homeopathy! His first homeopathic remedy was teething tablets, and after that, he had his own homeopath that kept him healthy and hearty! He very rarely gets sick, and if he does, it's quickly fixed with a remedy. I wish all children had that option!

Glad to hear that homeopathy has been so helpful. I am sure Shelley Keneipp can confirm the many benefits for people of all ages!
