A homeopathic remedy given that is most similar to a person’s unique presentation activates a dynamic healing response specific to that person and their overall health.

Homeopathic principles
Homeopathy is only effective when used according to its principles and an appropriate remedy is given. This is why there are so many discrepancies in homeopathic studies, in many cases the Law of Similars was not properly executed, meaning a potentised remedy was given that was not homeopathic to the person. What produces a homeopathic response is based on the unique similarity of the remedy to the person taking it.

“Homeopathic” remedies are actually potentised remedies
A remedy may be called “homeopathic” but that does not mean it will produce a homeopathic affect, it merely indicates that a remedy was made by a progression of dilution and successions outlined by homeopathic potency standards.

The debate about homeopathic potency is over
esearch in Nano-particles shows that homeopathic remedies which are greatly diluted, still exist on a physical level comparative to a typical virus.

Homeopathic self care
You may have noticed that “homeopathic” or potentised remedies are more commonly available. Self-care can work well for acute short-term care, however successful chronic or constitutional care requires careful observation, objectivity, proper assessment of healing processes, and understanding when appropriate changes in remedy dosage and potency are needed for continued improvement. For ailments lasting more than 2 weeks, chronic consitutional care with a skilled homeopath is recommended for best results.

Classical homeopathy
A classical homeopath or classical homeopathy refers to using only one homeopathic remedy for a person, as a most effective approach outlined by homeopathy founder Dr. Samuel Hahnemann.

Complementary care
This homeopathic care is designed to complement and work alongside your existing primary care.

The difference between a Homeopathic Doctor or Medical Doctor and a Certified Classical Homeopath
A Certified Classical Homeopath (CCH) is different than a Homeopathic Doctor or Medical Doctor. A licensed doctor can provide wellness exams, order labs and write prescriptions, whereas a Certified Classical Homeopath is most often not additionally licensed to practice medicine. However, a Certified Classical Homeopath is considered an expert in homeopathic care and can coordinate care with your licensed care provider.

The difference between a Naturopath and a Homeopath
A Certified Classical Homeopath (CCH) is different than a Naturopathic Doctor (ND). While a Naturopath may or may not use homeopathy in their practice or may even choose to specialize in homeopathy; they are also a licensed doctor and can offer primary care. However, a Homeopath specializes in homeopathy, and may or may not have a naturopathic, medical, or other type of license to provide primary care.

Benefits of care from a specializing Homeopath
A well-educated and experienced homeopath can more successfully lead and maintain your homeopathic care with a strong focus on healing the underlying imbalance that caused the challenges you seek care for. The better the focus on healing from the inside out over time, the more lasting the results, even to the point of complete recovery in many cases. To achieve this, it is important to work with a Homeopath with a proper foundation in classical homeopathic education.

Throughout history homeopathy has been the most successful method of care during epidemics. Dr. Saine collated over 10,000 references from the late 1700’s to the early 2000’s and concluded “results obtained by homeopathy during epidemics consistently revealed an extremely low mortality rate, regardless of the physician, the time, the place or the type of disease, including the ones with very high mortality rates.” In fact, homeopathic care consistently yielded a minimum of 1/2 the mortality rate as conventional care alone.

Many homeopaths and doctors around the world are reporting high levels of success using homeopathy during COVID-19. Approximately 80% of people are responding well with regular constitutional/ holistic homeopathic care and a smaller percentage of people have responded well to acute homeopathic care. Another approach that people are finding results with is prophylaxis homeopathy, which can boost immune response to the virus. One method is called genus epidemicus. This refers to the one homeopathic remedy that has worked successfully in the majority of cases with a particular illness. When a healthy person takes this remedy, it can act to reduce susceptibility to that illness.

Taking this a step further, during COVID-19, the majority of homeopathic cases have recovered with one of a few different remedies. Selecting the best remedy for the individual person can both boost immune response to those not infected and be taken as part of a care plan to those who do have COVID-19.

Autumn is currently offering both constitutional/ holistic homeopathy and prophylaxis remedy guidance. This is not intended to replace necessary medical care, but may provide much needed support to your immune system, which can improve recovery time and/ or reduce susceptibility to the virus.
