Description: Homeopathy is a dynamic system of healthcare that takes many years of study for a practitioner to become a proficient listener and observer. One must become effective enough to determine from thousands of remedies, the right remedy for the symptoms being presented in their client… and any symptom changes that happen along the way toward balance. Along the lines of flower remedies, homeopathic remedies have had the physical chemistry of the substance diluted out. Since there is no physical chemistry in these remedies from the plant, mineral, or animal kingdom, there is no chance for side effects and no chance for suppression of the symptom’s expression by paralysis. Homeopathic remedies are much more specific in their symptom profile than flower remedies. There can be one hundred people who are presenting the same pathological ailment, but the experience of it will not be the same for all of them. Some of the affected may feel better with warmth while others feel better with cold. Some of the people may have increased thirst while others don’t. Symptoms may be alleviated by being in fresh air for some while others prefer to be indoors. All of these differences in people’s experience of the same ailment would require a different remedy to help bring someone toward health and wellness. A skilled homeopathic practitioner, during the interview, will be listening to words that are used to describe what the client’s experience of the ailment is. They will also be watching hand gestures and body postures to help them narrow down and pinpoint the right remedy.
At The New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics, homeopathic theory is introduced which includes the history of homepathic medicine, and indications for around 32 different remedies. Because homeopathic constitutional case taking requires so much practice to become proficient, our emphasis is on first aid and acute applications. Things like muscle soreness, sprains, strains, bruising, broken bones, skin rashes, tendonitis, common cold, seasonal allergies, food allergies can be successfully treated using these gentle and potent Healer remedies. The success of treatment using Homeopathic remedies during acute episodes often times gives students the juice they need to pursue instruction that goes deeper into mental and emotional constitutional applications.
