Does regular homeopathy still work?
Because some people seem to claim it doesn’t.
Homeopathic detox protocols are all the rage.
Some of the more extreme regimens involve giving people dozens of remedies at once.
In high potencies. In ascending potencies.
With the ideas this will clear any drug or toxin they’ve encountered over the course of their lives.
Otherwise, we’re told, regular homeopathic remedies won’t work.
In reality, ANY well-selected remedy can help you.
This is as true today as it was 200 years ago.
People dealt with toxins back then too, when doctors routinely prescribed mercury for syphilis and other maladies.
Any homeopathic remedy that matches your current state can raise your vitality.
This will make you feel better, which is the reason we do homeopathy in the first place.
Homeopaths working outside a clinic setting also have no practical way to assess whether toxins leave the body, after someone takes a multi-remedy concoction.
Neither does anyone recommending single remedies.
All we can do is assess how a client feels afterward.
Are they eating better? Sleeping better? Getting more things done?
Has their mood shifted in a positive direction? Has their joint pain decreased?
Have their other symptoms resolved?
This is the only real way we can determine if our remedy suggestions work.
Homeopaths have long known we don’t necessarily have to give an exact substance in potency.
For instance, someone with aluminum overload may respond better to a remedy named Plumbum, rather than to Alumina, which is potentized aluminum.
Plumbum is made from lead.
In this case we aren’t giving the exact toxin in potency.
But Plumbum is only given if it fits someone’s state.
The idea we no longer have to match remedies to an individual is a totally novel theory.
It violates the core homeopathic principle of “like cures like.”
Giving 5 to 25 remedies at once turns the concept of taking one well-selected remedy on its head. (This is the whole idea behind homeopathy.)
So does recommending a remedy based upon our perception that someone took a drug 20 years ago. So it must be causing a problem now. Therefore, they need “detoxing” from that drug.
So that drug in potency is added to the already fat remedy packet.
Yet we have no homeopathic provings for these new multi-remedy mixes, like we do for single remedies.
Taken together it’s assumed the mixes work like one brand new remedy, with unknown action.
Regular Homeopathy Vs Detox Protocols
Many people have jumped upon the homeo detox train.
With the assumption that regular homeopathy no longer works.
Because it doesn’t employ a specific “detox” protocol.
But nothing could be further from the truth.
In my honest opinion, I think we need to defend homeopathy from this latest attack.
Yes, it’s an attack.
Because it’s based upon the lie that homeopathy no longer works. (Unless, certain “detox” protocols are done first.)
In reality, every well-trained homeopath knows when to use Tautopathic remedies, made from drugs and environmental toxins.
Typically they’re used if a case stalls.
Or, occasionally, a potentized drug is the first remedy you give. (With homeopathy everything is individualized.)
You know someone has never been well since taking a drug. Or being exposed to a poison.
More often, Tautopathic remedies are used as intercurrents.
That’s when it makes perfect sense to stop the regular remedy.
Do a few doses of a Tautopathic “detox” remedy.
Then return to the remedy that helped before.
Every well-trained homeopath knows how to do this.
So giving people special “detox” remedies is not new.
It’s an established method of treating people.
What is brand new is the insistence that regular homeopathy no longer works.
Unless a multi-step, multi-remedy, ascending potency detox regimen is done first.
Do Homeopathic Detox Protocols Work?
Yes, we all need to be open minded.
Homeopathy is an evolving discipline.
Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of modern homeopathy, continued to perfect it until his death.
That was more than 200 years ago.
We can only wonder what he’d be doing today, if he were still alive.
Yet I highly doubt he’d be giving people dozens of homeopathic remedies at once.
Because this would mean the whole basis of like cures like would need to be abandoned.
We have no idea what happens when so many remedies are taken together.
Repeatedly in ascending doses.
Since we have no way to measure “detox” all we can see is whether someone is getting better.
This is all we have to go by.
It’s possible the multi-remedy detox protocols help people.
Granted these aren’t the folks I’m hearing from.
Yet we still need to be open to new ideas.
For instance, we’re being bombarded with all kinds of EMF frequencies.
This is something never before seen in the history of mankind.
So we need to think about this exposure as a potential block in the course of treatment.
And then respond with appropriate remedies, as needed.
We also need to let people know that regular homeopathy still works.
It has a long history of neutralizing environmental toxins.
Well-trained homeopaths use Tautopathy fairly regularly, as needed.
This means it’s done in a controlled manner.
One Tautopathic remedy at a time.
If there’s a reasonable suspicion a certain toxin is interfering with progress.
It’s also possible very sick people can get well without ever taking a single Tautopathic remedy.
Because well-selected homeopathic remedies can work so well.
Or someone may need a regular remedy, plus one or more nosodes.
Nosodes are special remedies made from diseased tissue. Nosodes have a long history in homeopathic practice.
We also use them when needed.
But not randomly, or mixed with a lot of other remedies.
Treating Ghost Pathologies in Homeopathy
I remember my homeopathic teacher warning us against treating “ghost” pathologies.
This means giving remedies for something we think is there. But isn’t causing a problem.
This could have been a drug taken long ago.
The person’s body has taken care of it.
Or it’s possible a previous homeopathic addressed it.
Homeopathic remedies, given for a specific reason, can have wider-ranging benefits.
In any event, we should focus on what we see on the surface, right in front of us.
If there’s a buried problem it will surface as treatment progresses.
It makes no sense to hit people with high potencies (or low potencies either) for a problem that may not exist.
This approach can waste people’s time and money.
It can cause uncomfortable and prolonged aggravations.
It can turn people away from homeopathy.
So, yes, this is another attack on homeopathy.
