An article called “Presenting 50 Facts About Homeopathy” was written and published in attempt to dispel the attacks and myths perpetuated by the mainstream media. Unfortunately, the good intentions of this piece were self-sabotaged by being riddled with all the usual myths and misconceptions built in to conventional Homeopathy. I’ve decided to not let the valuable nuggets of truth of this article go to waste, which I’ve re-written here. [note: I have omitted many of the purely historical or statistical facts in the latter part of this compilation. Please review the original list to get a flavour of all of those points]:
How Homeopathy Heilkunst Works
*Fact 1 – Hippocrates ‘The Father of Medicine’ of Ancient Greece said there were two Laws of Healing natural therapeutics: The Law of Opposites for correcting an imbalance, and the Law of Similars for curing a disease. Homeopathy Heilkunst treats the diseases of the patient with medicines using the Law of Similars, and corrects their imbalances with the Law of Opposites. Orthodox medicine appears to use the Law of Opposites, e.g. antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, anticonvulsants, antihypertensives, anti-depressants, anti-psychotics, however most of their therapeutics are based neither on the Law of Similars or the Law of Opposites, but on no known natural law whatsoever – in other words, the practice of conventional medicine is ignorance personified.
*Fact 2 – Homeopathic theories are Medical Heilkunst is based on fixed principles of the Laws of Nature which do not change — unlike medical theories which are constantly changing!
*Fact 3 – Homeopathy is All forms of Allopathy (including Classical Homeopathy) are an evidence-based, empirical medicine, while Heilkunst is the only rational, and truly scientific approach built on Man’s capacity for reason and participation of the Phenonmena of nature.
*Fact 4 – Homeopathy Heilkunst is both an art and a science, as rooted in the German term ‘Kunst’. The ‘healing’ of the Law of Opposites and the ‘curing’ of the Law of Similars are rooted in the first part of the word ‘Heil’.
*Fact 5 – The Homeopathic provings of medicines are a more scientific method of testing than the orthodox model. Dr. Hahnemann was one of the few to find his way out of the apparent dead-end of the Kantian philosophy of science, which dictated that it was impossible to speak objectively about anything other than the outer appearances of nature. The work of Goethe and Rudolf Steiner are also fascinating accounts of how to get beyond Kant’s false limitations.
*Fact 6 – Homeopathic medicine awakens and stimulates the body’s own curative powers. The potentized remedy acts as a catalyst to set healing into motion. A curative remedy applied on the basis of the Law of Similars, in its initial activity, destroys the disease entity within the patient. Once the curative action of the remedy is complete, then the healing power of the body is able to complete its job of clean-up and restoration. In other words, the first action belongs to the remedy, and the counter-action belongs to the innate healing power of the body.
*Fact 7 – Homeopathic medicines work by communicating a current/pattern/frequency of energy via the whole human body Medicines, or ‘artificial diseases’, work to jump start the body’s own inherent healing mechanisms annihilate the diseases of the patient on the basis of Similar Resonance. There have been many speculative attempts to explain the ‘mechanism’ of how remedies work, but this is made difficult by the fact that the dominant scientific language of our culture is based on a belief that the world is a giant machine made up of many moving ‘parts’. “The Wholeness of Nature” by Henri Bortoft is a book which explains the scientific world view according to Goethe (and by extension, Dr. Hahnemann’s), and may be a good place for those who wish to explore this issue more deeply.
*Fact 8 – Homeopathy assists the body to heal itself, to overcome an illness Medical Heilkunst uses curative medicine consistent with the laws of nature which brings the patient to a higher level of health. Orthodox medicine suppresses the illness, bringing the patient to a lower level of health.
*Fact 9 – The homeopathic practitioner The Medical Heilkunstler endeavours to search for and treat the cause of the disease in order to heal the effect cure it.
*Fact 10 – Outcomes of homeopathic Heilkunst treatment are measured by the long term curative effects of prescribing and complete eradication of all the disease states, correction of all the imbalances, and ultimately, the progressive replacement of ignorance with truth. One of the most important metrics of health we observe through Heilkunst treatment, is the patient’s ever increasing capacity to resonate with themselves, and their world.
*Fact 11 – The homeopathic practitioner treats the whole person, believing all symptoms are interrelated and seeks to select a medicine which most closely covers them all. The Medical Heilkunstler strives to never apply any therapeutics on the basis of belief, but only by the application of rational principles, and true diagnosis into what is happening behind the veil of the outer appearances of the patient (such as symptoms). The Heilkunstler deeply respects, and participates the patient as an individual human being; however, the diseases of the patient are hated, and an all-out war is waged against them within the confines of the practitioner’s office.
*Fact 12 – Homeopathic remedies are cheap priceless.
*Fact 13 – Pharmaceutical medicines are expensive; however the monetary expense of pharmaceuticals is nothing compared to the cost of fatalities and iatrogenic diseases suffered by their recipients. Pharmaceutical drugs have now become the #1 cause of death. Allopathic medicine, I suppose, needs to be best at something.
*Fact 14 – There are more than 4,000 homeopathic medicines. In fact, any substance (mineral, plant, animal) could be applied on the basis of the Law of Similars. The question in any case of disease is which medicine has a similar nature as it?
*Fact 15 – Homeopathic medicines have no toxic side-effects.
*Fact 16 – Homeopathic medicines are non-addictive.
*Fact 17 – Every true homeopathic medicine is made using one substance — whether plant, mineral, metal, etc. The exact substance is known, unlike most modern drugs where we are rarely informed of the ingredients.
*Fact 18 – Any remedy up to a 12c or a 24x potency still contains some of the original molecules of the substance and this is known as Avogadro’s number.
*Fact 19 – Every Patient is Unique. so homeopathic medicines are individualized. Disease, however, is a dime-a-dozen, and can be categorized and accurately identified by various typologies and jurisdictions, making correct diagnosis a fairly dependable operation. It’s a good thing, because it would be otherwise impossible to have any true system of medicine.
*Fact 20 – Homeopaths Heilkunstlers treat genetic illness, called miasms, tracing its origins to 6 8 main genetic causes: Tuberculosis, Syphilis, Gonorrhoea, Psora (scabies), Cancer, Leprosy, Malaria, Ringworm and Lyme Disease. Each miasm relates to a particular season of the year, and their sequence must be followed to completely eradicate them at the deeper causal level.
Orthodox Medicine Opposing Homeopathy
*Fact 31 – Big Pharma does not want the Public to find out how well homeopathy works! They most especially don’t want the public to know about the depths of Heilkunst’s successes, which go far beyond the scope of homeopathy.
Homeopathic Practitioners and Doctors of Medical Heilkunst
*Fact 40 – Homeopathic Practitioners train for 4 years in Anatomy and Physiology, as well as Pathology and Disease, Materia Medica, Homeopathic Philosophy and study of the Homeopathic Repertory. Medical Heilkunstlers undergo an even more rigorous training program, as well as agree to on ongoing pursuit of continuing education, as outlined by the C/IHA code of ethics.
*Fact 41 – Most homeopaths and medical Heilkunstlers treat patients who have been referred to them by word of mouth. Most patients seek out homeopathy and medical Heilkunst because conventional treatment has not benefited them or because it poses too great a risk of side-effects.
Popularity of Homeopathy
*Fact 50 – The media as a whole has been unwilling to air a defence of the efficacy of homeopathy and the validity of this 250 year old profession.
