I Love Homeopathy
I didn’t know a thing about homeopathy until I moved to Maine in 2004.
I am a convert. For sure.
It’s my first line of defense for body issues.
And as time has gone by, I am more and more wedded to this form of healing–having tried it for 13 years now.
What I like is that homeopathy works WITH the body, not against (cut, poison, burn) its healing modalities.
I can tell you that I used to get EXTREME reactions to poison ivy–such that it would run all over my body in huge, weeping sores that would take weeks and weeks to heal. I no longer have poison ivy–yet am exposed to it all the time via the woods and an active rat terrier who runs through it on a regular basis.
I could go on.
At the end of May, I came down with shingles. (Oh dear god!) A week later my blisters were dry and healing. I then had nerve and muscle pain and ITCHING, but my case has been nothing like what I have witnessed other people having. My homeopath got me right on to one of the major shingles remedies, and that made all the difference. Next, she moved to a number of other remedies. And my energy person suggested vitamin E for the itching. I found a very clean product on Joseph Mercola’s web site, and the itching is almost gone now. (Most commercial vitamin E is made from soy, has a lot of ingredients I could not tolerate with my histamine intolerance issues, AND according to Mercola these products do not have balanced forms of vitamin E so can inhibit absorption of other nutrients.
Homeopathy is also well respected in much of Europe, as near as I can tell. And is covered under many health care plans, as near as I can tell. Coverage is probably is site specific though. I don’t really know.
Anyway, here’s a good article if you are curious:
Homeopathy is here to stay. Despite relentless criticism from skeptics and fundamentalists, homeopathy has withstood the test of time.
