My commitment to helping people has led me to the study of this alternative therapy, which naturally and without side effects, serves to heal body, mind and spirit.

What is homeopathy?

The concept of homeopathy was developed by Samuel Christian Hahnemann in 1808, a German physician, chemist and toxicologist. The term homeopathy comes from the Greek hómeos (similar) and páthos (disease).

Homeopathy is a substance that is capable of producing a certain group of effects or symptoms in a healthy person; when properly prepared by homeopathic means, it has the property of curing the same group of symptoms in a sick patient. (Hahnemann).

Hahnemann carried out experiments on himself with various substances (following a rigorous and scientific method as he was a doctor). He called them provings or proofs. Other medical colleagues of the time helped him and participated in the trials and verification of his hypothesis. “The same, cure the same.”

Hahnemann worked as a translator for years while searching for a healing method that did not produce side effects, since the medical methods of the time did not satisfy him. The first experiment  which he carried on, consisted of ingesting bark from the cinchona tree (Cinchona officinalis). While translating a “Treatise of Materia Medica” by Dr. Cullen, he drew his attention to the treatment with quinine that the author proposed to cure malaria and which was attributed to the bitter effect on the stomach.

Hahnemann decided to test the effect himself. The German doctor suffered the same symptoms of the disease for which it was usually prescribed: intermittent fevers. The explanation for this phenomenon, according to him, was that the similarity of the symptoms caused by the medication and those of the disease “competed” in the generation of the symptoms until the cure arrived. Hahnemann generalized this finding to other medicinal substances.

“similia similibus curantur”/ “Like, cure like.”

His hypothesis stated that any substance that caused a specific symptomatic condition in a healthy subject, could make similar symptoms disappear in a sick subject, as long as it was used in small doses. Paying attention to the nature of these symptoms mentally-emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Therefore Hahnemann proposed a holistic healing system, which differentiated it from the traditional medicine of the time, whose philosophy understood diseases as entities susceptible to diagnosis and standardized therapy. Hahnemann, on the other hand, considered human persons as indivisible entities who reacted through the total of signs and symptoms; The disease being considered as this particular set of symptoms (taking into account the Mental-emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of the symptomatological picture). Thus he formulated a new way of seeing diseases, not as rigid labels with general symptoms; but rather as particular, individual, peculiar and curious to each individual.

For homeopathic treatment, we take into account the holistic aspects of the person, the symptomatic mental-emotional, physical and spiritual character. Based on the specific qualities that the person presents, a homeopathic remedy is sought, which produces in the healthy person the same or more similar characteristics on the mental-emotional, physical and spiritual levels; generating levels of healing with the appropriate time and dose of the remedy.
