Welcome to Homeopathy Help Website

This homeopathy educational and non-profit website is a labour of love (and a work in progress) and was written and constructed by Simon King, a classical homeopath with over 18 years clinical experience. There are over 2000 pages (and growing) of information on how homeopathy works and how to effectively apply it. Contact me if you have specific questions about homeopathy not answered on this site. All information on this site is (currently) free to access.

HOMEOPATHY-WHAT IS IT?

Homeopathy works on real, live patients, not on test tubes. If you understand homeopathy, you’ll understand why.

That patients get better from homeopathy there is no doubt, the evidence is there in the patients themselves. The complaint so often presented though is that this is anecdotal evidence and therefore somehow not valid. I find it extraordinary that in a world where the majority entrust their very soul’s welfare to beliefs based on anecdotal evidence (religious and spiritual experiences and beliefs), the same majority will not allow anecdotal evidence for their medical welfare!

I really couldn’t care less whether homeopathy is ‘scientific’ or not, nor could I care less whether it can be repeated in test tubes. Bear in mind that those systems (‘scientific’, double blind trials etc.) are the same ones that condone those very drugs that you read about with fairly consistant frequency in the papers, which have been removed from service having been found to be more dangerous than beneficial, or to be worse than placebo (e.g. the recent report on antidepressants having no clinical benefit). All those drugs were sanctioned by exactly the same system that naysayers want to subject homeopathy to!

No matter how homeopathy works, what I do care passionately about is that people get to see it work and do not throw it away like an uncut diamond in the hands of a gardener, i.e. no value is seen in it because it doesn’t look like what we expect.

I care that people do not dismiss it out of hand purely because they cannot understand how it works, or because it does not fit into an understanding they already have of medicine; one which is limited by systems that are simply not applicable to homeopathy. Those very systems that people try to fit homeopathy into, are often the very reason why patients come to see homeopaths in the first place because it is those systems which have failed the patient, i.e. their doctors couldn’t do any thing for them, yet homeopaths often can and do.

If something so patently effective by its results (and so very safe) is dismissed by those who may have medical or social status but no expertise in the field of homeopathy, the losers are not only the patients but the countries’ health budgets. Homeopathy is extremely cheap compared to conventional Western medicine.

The arguements against homeopathy cannot be justified on the grounds that it doesn’t work.Those who have personally benefitted from or who have studied homeopathy will understand why such antagonism as appears in the media is entirely unjustified.

Instead of starting from the position that ‘homeopathy can’t work therefore it doesn’t’; why not take the position that ‘patients are cured when they go to see homeopaths so let’s investigate how this happens’?

Proof of the pudding?

It’s good to question, it’s OK to doubt, much better to explore, and really great to actually study:
– what is not good is blind dismissal from misconceptions and half formed lopsided arguments.

*New …- what is downright peurile is the recent media charades where the anti-homeopathy brigade swallowed whole bottles of ‘homeopathic’ remedies outside Boots the Chemists to demonstrate that there was ‘nothing’ in them: again underlining not only their ignorance ( it has nothing to do with ‘quantity’) but the silly lengths they will go to to persuade the public their opinion should be validated.

Homeopathy FAQ’s

FAQ’s

Curing with similars

This is a similar idea to that of vaccinations; by providing the body with a ‘taster’ of the disease, it prompts the body to create resistance but unlike vaccinations, homeopathy is given not just as a preventative, but most often as a remedy to an existing condition.

When taking homeopathic medicine, you are effectively kick-starting your body into fighting the problem itself by giving your immune system the necessary information to do so. This gentle approach has many obvious advantages and is able to offer a response tailored to your specific symptoms.

What does curing with ‘similars’ mean?

.. it means using a substance that could cause a similar problem to cure the problem, e.g. in a condition where the skin had symptoms that looked and felt like a nettle sting even though it wasn’t (e.g. urticaria), Nettle might be used homeopathically because the effects of nettle are ‘similar’.

Why would this actually cure the ‘similar’ problem?


The genius of Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, was to discover that when made susceptible by illness our bodies do indeed react to the homeopathic remedy as if it were actually causing a similar problem. Thus our system safely cures itself by this reaction, because the remedy it has been given is similar to the disease.

What does the medicine contain ?

Although there are thousands of different remedies, the carrier for them is usually the same, homeopathic medicines are usually in the form of small sugar pills. These sugar bases carry the individual prescribed remedy. This is created by potentising it; i.e. repeatedly diluting it down so that less than trace elements of the substance, which can be anything from an everyday plant to a rare mineral, remain. Fortunately, the body is naturally so sensitive when ill that it is able to respond to these otherwise undetectable amounts.

Is it safe ?

Although homeopathic medicines should be kept away from children and not taken unprescribed, it is impossible to suffer a toxic overdose. Homeopathy is equally safe for children, the elderly, seriously ill, even newly born babies, for this reason it is also particularly suitable for people who are in a very fragile state.

Giving a dose of the wrong remedy (i.e. an un-homeopathic remedy) does nothing because it is so dilute and unless it is similar (homeopathic) to the disease the body has no susceptability to it and therefore no reaction.

Homeopaths use specially prepared highly dilute (and therefore safe) substances called ‘potentised’ remedies.
It is safe because the remedy is so dilute that there is no possibility of a toxic reaction.

What ailments can it be used for ?

Homeopathy is a holistic system which can be extremely beneficial to a vast range of physical and emotional problems.

Examples include;
ASTHMA, ECZEMA, SPORTS INJURIES, ARTHRITIS, PERIOD PAINS, PMS (PMT), M.E. OR CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME, GASTRIC PROBLEMS, ALLERGIES, FEARS, PHOBIAS & ANXIETY, EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS, CHILDRENS BEHAVIOURAL PROBLEMS, STRESS.

In theory there is no limit to what conditions homeopathy could treat; in practice it depends on the experience of the practitioner and also the laws in different countries limiting what can be treated.

While treatment for some problems is complex and requires detailed diagnosis and prescription by a qualified homeopath, there are many complaints for which homeopathic medicine can be simply, safely and effectively self-prescribed.. E.g remedies like Arnica (for bruises) are especially useful for a first aid box and can be purchased in most chemists.

What does treatment involve ?

Treatment should always be with a homeopath who is Registered with a member of CORH and who holds a recognised qualification.(depends on country). This ensures that he or she will have completed a 3 or 4 year professional course and be fully qualified and accredited to practice.

At your first appointment your homeopath will want to know about your past illnesses, even seemingly unrelated emotional or physical difficulties you have been experiencing, in addition to the details of the problem which has caused you to seek advice. From this, your homeopath will be able to build a detailed and personal picture of the possible causes, course and personality of your ailment and will subsequently prescribe your medicine.

It is usual that after taking the remedy for a specified amount of time, you report back to your homeopath who will then advise you on what next to take. Appointments are usually person to person but can be over the telephone (often useful for emergencies), sometimes even in your home should you be too ill to leave the house.

Does Homeopathy work?

If you know nothing about homeopathy it may a strange idea when first encountered – but it really does work

Homeopathy will work only if applied according to homeopathic principles, this is why it is so important to understand the basics of homeopathy and its difference to other forms of medicine before trying to use it.

What is ‘allopathy’?

Homeopathy is much more akin in its philosophy to that of Eastern medicine than it is to that of Western medicine, but in lieu of acupuncture, shiatzu, moxibustion etc , homeopathy uses its potentised remedies to stimulate the system to heal itself..

The principle of ‘similars’ contrasts with the principle of ‘opposites’ (allopathy) used by conventional Western medicine:

e.g. Western medicine uses something to prevent a skin condition by suppressing it with an agent (coal tar products, steroids based creams etc) that is an opposite to the problem, thus preventing the body’s reaction, whereas homeopathy uses something that could cause a similar condition, to get the body to react curatively itself, i.e. non-suppressive

Science Behind Homeopathy – How Homeopathy Works


Science Behind Homeopathy – How Homeopathy Works

Homeopathic system of medicine is the second largest practiced system of medicine and has gained a universal popularity because of its scientificity, effectivity, and easier applicability.

But at the same time, it has been dragged as one of the most controversial systems of medicine due to various aspects like dilution, potentization etc. This is the reason why it is being questioned constantly for scientific proofs. Here and then we see allegations against Homeopathy, usually based upon evidence and modus operandi.

Below Documentary video – Science Behind Homeopathy by Dr. Saurav Arora, founder of Initiative to Promote Research in Homeopathy is an attempt to scientifically answer many queries like dilution, dynamization, mode of action, transfer of biological information, physicochemical properties, etc.

This is the most updated work purely based upon the peer-reviewed scientific publications dedicated to fundamental research in high dilution and homeopathy.

Please share this video with your family, friends, and colleagues and let everybody know that there is a scientific basis of every question related to Homeopathy.

http://www.vox.com/2015/3/11/8190427/homeopathy

This is a true story. A few years ago, I fell down and really hurt my ankle. I needed a crutch for a while, I couldn’t walk without help. It was bad.

I remember calling my parents, asking them to pick me up from my apartment at the time, and when I got home, my mom took this ointment that she had used on me when I was a kid.

It was some Indian medicine that she would rub on my foot, kind of massage it… and it had this really pleasant scent. And I remember getting hurt as a kid, she would do this, and I would feel better.

So this time, as she was doing it, I looked at the bottle and it said the word homeopathic on it. And I had no idea, growing up, that it was homeopathic.

Basically there was nothing in this ointment that would actually help heal my bruise. Nothing.

It was all in my head. It was always in my head.

But my mom genuinely believed it helped. And for a long time, so did I.

This sort of “medicine” exists for everything. Headaches, arthritis, ADHD.

And it’s all fake.

Here’s literally what they do with homeopathy.

They take a supposed active ingredient — a mineral or herb — and then they mix it with a lot of water. And then they take some of that mixture and mix it with even more water. And they keep doing this.

Eventually the ratio of the actual ingredient to water is like a single raindrop compared to all the oceans in the world.

It’s not enough to have an impact on you.

The more diluted it is, the more useless it is.

And some homeopaths will tell you that that active ingredient impacts all the water. The water has a memory of the ingredient. Which makes no sense.

If you’re at the beach and a little kid pees in the water a mile away, you’re probably okay. It’s not getting to you. Now imagine one drop of it. And these homeopaths are telling us that one drop impacts the entire ocean. Right…

The people who sell it make it look real. They have real bottles. The packaging looks nice. The pills look legitimate.

But it’s just a placebo.

A very expensive placebo, by the way. People in the U.S. spend more than billion a year on this sort of fake medicine.

Why do they buy it? Well, it’s usually cheaper than real medicine, and people who don’t understand science will tell you it totally works. Because they believe anecdotes over evidence.

You could literally swallow a whole bottle of homeopathic sleeping pills… and you’d be okay! People have done this as a demonstration. It’s very powerful. (If you do it, please just make sure they’re homeopathic.)

Now maybe you’re thinking, who cares? If people feel better, what’s the big deal?

The big deal is that people often use homeopathic medicine instead of going to a real doctor.

My ankle would eventually get better over time. But what happens when you have a real problem?

If you are taking homeopathic medicine for an infection, or cancer, or for swine flu — yes, that happened, too — you are putting yourself in danger by not getting real help.

Homeopathy Explained


Homeopathy Explained

Homeopathy is a pseudo-science that falls under the broad canopy ofalternative and complimentary medicine. Invented by Samuel Hahnemann in 1796 and developed by him in the following years, homeopathy depends on the ideas of like-for-like, where symptoms can be alleviated by dliuted causes of symptoms.

Homeopathy’s popularity has waxed and waned over the years, with very few homeopaths existing outside Europe in the 1950s, but the practice has gained traction since the 1970s.
