Homeopathy – Some Personal Experiences

Posted by Alternative Medicine on March 25, 2011 in Homeopathy with No Comments

There is a lot of controversy about homeopathic remedies. One thing I know for sure. If it works, use it. I have been going to a homeopathic doctor for twenty years. Both of my children who are now eighteen and twenty years old, have been treated throughout their entire lives, by a homeopathic doctor. Their health from a young age, in comparison with some of the other kids at school. My children got the usual ‘flu’ that would turn to a bad chest cough. My doctor would treat them with his homeopathic ‘flu’ remedy and within three days it would clear up.In comparison to some of the children whose ‘flu’, coughs and colds would drag on for weeks. Why would anyone question the efficacy of this medicine?

Many of my customers also went to the same Homeopath and I have decided that I would like to share some of those stories. While these situations certainly could not be applied to everyone, I feel that Homeopathy deserves a chance since there appears to be too much evidence in favour of these so-called placebos. These are the sorts of comments being made about Homeopathy. The British Medical Association vehemently objects to national funding for homeopathy treatment, considering any effect to be placebos. Homeopathy is one of the most polarizing forms of complementary and alternative medicine in part because it’s based on principles that defy the laws of chemistry and physics. Well that may all have some controversial weight, but to be honest… if it works for you… why not use it.

I’ve always been pretty healthy except for a regular recurring nausea for no apparent reason. When I became pregnant with my first child I became impossibly ill. And this was my first recommended visit to my Homeopath. He conducted his diagnosis with a Vega machine and concluded that because I had suffered with hepatitis when I was six years old, the liver needed to be treated. He put me on a diet of fruit and vegetables for five weeks. No fat, protein, sugar or white flour whatsoever. I was so ill that I welcomed the diet. He gave me two bottles of medicine. Both in a liquid form that tasted like water with a mild after taste of alcohol. He explained that the diet was important because the liver had to be still in order for the medicine to work. He also described how liver cells have a certain shape, and due to certain circumstances such as Hepatitis, the shape of the liver cell changes. This affects the way the liver aids the digestion and elimination of proteins from the body. When the liver renews its cells, it simply duplicates the same ‘damaged’ liver cells and continues to work under duress. This was why I was experiencing this continual nausea.Within three days all of the symptoms cleared up. It was remarkable!

I completed the diet and the remedy. I am a changed person. I had acne… it cleared up. My complexion took on a new elasticity. The acne scarring which was mild, disappeared as the skin just plumped out. My breath was fresh. My food tasted completely different, and for the first time since I was a child, I could eat a fried egg. Whew! Phenomenal. I have been in tip-top health since that time. I sleep well..I have boundless energy, no hormone problems… at fifty.

One of my clients who was diagnosed with a terminal illness and is the person who recommended my Homeopath to me. On the day she gave me his phone number, she told me that eleven years previously she was told to see this Homeopathic doctor as a last resort. He husband carried her to the doctors rooms as she could not walk due to the illness. The doctor treated her. After two weeks she woke up, got out of bed and went straight to the kitchen and began to prepare breakfast. She was telling me her story eleven years later.

A short time later, another client told me about her son at seven years old, was suffering with recurring kidney infections. She had been very upset when she was told that one kidney had to be removed. She was told to see the same Homeopath. She was telling me the story while her son was getting his cut with me. He was now fourteen years old and was seven when he was diagnosed. He smiled at me and said “I’m fine now. I haven’t had any more problems since I was seven”.

My mother developed painful arthritis about four years before I started going to my doctor. After he treated me, my mother went to see him. Can you guess? No more problems. There were many incidences over the past twenty years similar to the ones I have described, since we were all from the same area and went to the same Homeopath. There were to many successful results for the medicine to simply be called a placebo. Now I cannot make any medical claims. I can only write about the success stories over the years, and believe me, there were many. I can only defend homeopathy due to the results that I have personally experienced and the success stories that I have been exposed to. I wish you health. At least explore a homeopathic route if nothing else is working.
