Healing with Homeopathy

by Luc Chaltin, N.D., D.I. Hom.

Homeopathy is a complete system of healing discovered more than 200 years ago by a German physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. This method, soon accepted by many doctors, quickly developed into the healing method of choice in many parts of the world. Practitioners introduced the method in the US around 1835 and homeopathy became the most widely accepted form of medicine during the entire 19th century. The discovery of the so-called "wonder drugs" (prescription pharmaceuticals) greatly decreased the use of homeopathy in the US, however, not in other parts of the world.

For example, approximately thirty percent of all European patients consult homeopathic physicians. Concurrently, there are more than 300,000 homeopathic doctors practicing in India. According to the World Health Organization, homeopathy is the second most commonly used medicine in the world; the first being the use of herbs.

Homeostatic Mechanism

Homeopathic medicines stimulate the body's homeostatic mechanism, thus allowing the healing process to begin at the source of symptoms. Homeopathy is effective in the treatment of both acute and chronic diseases. It has great advantages over conventional medical treatments because it is not toxic in its approach. Doctors and patients who have discovered this advantage have turned to homeopathy in increasing numbers in recent decades.

Single Remedy

Classical homeopathy uses the single remedy approach. It is extremely effective against acute problems such as fever. However, the method lacks effectiveness against the chronic metabolic diseases we encounter today. Hahnemann, in his time, had already experienced treatment problems with these types of chronic diseases. He authored a book explaining that chronic diseases were incurable because of "miasms," a concept used to clarify the effects of chronic metabolic diseases on the body prior to the discovery of bacteria.

A French homeopath, Dr. Leon Vannier, wrote a book about his approach to the cure of chronic diseases in the 1950s, yet, most homeopaths paid little or no attention to his work. I discovered Dr.Vannier's book in 1965 and it allowed me to cure myself from tuberculosis in less than six months, saving my life. Today, we are able to address the metabolic problems associated with chronic diseases utilizing homeopathic remedies.

I call this "Clinical Homeopathy." Clinical Homeopathy addresses the symptoms in their totality. This approach utilizes a combination of different formulas to create a "complex" remedy. Standard complexes are designed to remove toxins, to stimulate certain organs, or to address specific chronic situations or diseases in the body. Healthy organs, such as the liver and the pancreas, are imperative for a healthy body.

Free radicals in the bloodstream cause diseases such as rheumatism and arthritis. Newton Laboratories offers a series of complexes for different organs and diseases. The Jump-Start Your Health Tri-Homeopathic System contains three basic formulas: the #1 Detoxifier for the liver, the #29 Bowel Discomfort for the pancreas and intestines, and the #9 Rheumatic Pain for the uric acid and other free radicals in the bloodstream.

There are a total of 66 complex remedies available from Newton Laboratories to address chronic diseases. All of these homeopathic remedies are available in either liquid or pellet form. Some contain herbals as the primary healing ingredient. In addition, there are formulas delivered by pump sprays for external application and ointments for topical application. Newton has also pioneered homeopathic remedies marketed specifically for children and for pets. Explore the world of Homeopathy today!
