Effects of Homeopathy | Homeopathic Health (5 of 7)

Part 5 in a 7-part series

 

What is the desired effect of the homeopathic remedy?

To get rid of (for instance) a headache, or to have one come on, or as a preventative?

 
Any of these is a possibility, and any of these could ultimately be curative.
 
You see, even triggering a headache to come on would actually be the first step of getting rid of that headache, as it would represent your subconscious's successful isolation and repair of the underlying reason for the headache. 
 
Consequently, this could be seen as ultimately the best preventative of all! 
 
Mind you, triggering a headache, which could be seen as a specific type of aggravation (see the more detailed discussion about these in the first post in this Homeopathic Health series for details), isn't a necessary or even somewhat common occurrence in my experience - most patients just start getting better, which is always nice :)
   
As well, I should emphasize that any of the above only applies to homeopathic single remedies which have been individually chosen for you by a skilled practitioner


In my humble opinion, combination homeopathic remedies are - with a few well-crafted exceptions - attempts to turn homeopathy into conventional medicine, allowing practitioners and lay people alike to prescribe symptomatically.

For example, the leading Flu remedy consists of every homeopathic thrown together which has something remotely to do with flu, while the Colic remedy likewise consists of every remedy which has something to do with colic.

This is, unfortunately, the type of homeopathic that this most commonly available to the general public, and with which the person with no previous exposure to homeopathy is most likely to be familiar. 

However, because the homeopathic provides information (rather than the raw material that herbs or food provide), I have noticed that using too many messages will often confuse the body, causing destructive interference and ultimately creating less beneficial effect (if any at all) than any of the individual remedies.

That said, I have noticed that there are a very few select people for whom combinations of remedies are preferable to any single remedy - however, in these instances, this combination is also individually selected after careful evaluation and testing, rather than being applied on the basis of a symptomatic disease label.    

Homeopathic single remedies, in my experience, have much greater potential to produce truly curative results, but they must in turn be very finely individualized by a skilled practitioner. 

I have over 1,000 single remedies in my ever-expanding medicine kit, and no one remedy is more or less likely a prescription in a given case than any other.

As my level of specificity has increased in this manner, the results which treatment has been able to produce have become more and more consistently gratifying.  

Note I have, over the course of my own homeopathic treatment by a fellow homeopath (for whom I prescribe in turn), I have realized that I cannot act as my own 'skilled practitioner' and self-prescribe! 

I reflected upon this fact after receiving a particularly good remedy which I knew and could recognize easily on others, but yet never recognized myself to be! 

Why was this, I mused? 

It suddenly hit me that it was almost impossible to not have this be the case! 

After all, the remedy is needed in the first place because we have a "blind spot" - something which we are completely oblivious to on a conscious or subconscious level, despite it being in plain sight. 

Since we cannot see our own blind spot, we cannot prescribe for ourselves.

This is why true healing (in my humble opinion) is better achieved by our collective consciousness than by solitary meditation and self reflection. 

We can spend a lifetime going around in circles inside our own heads, while the answer may be staring us in the face the whole time. 

I cannot count the number of times in my own life in which using another person as a sounding board has greatly enhanced my own clarity and insight into a situation that I could not have possibly tackled alone.

Naturopathic Medicine & Homeopathy Testimonials

The homeopathic remedy treated all my sexual symptoms very well.

And I'm not constantly running to the bathroom.

Also, my MD told me my prostate is smaller now.

G.G., Coquitlam (Coquitlam Town Centre), BC

My daughter was going through a horrible period of battling with anorexia, bulimia, and cycles of binging, starvation, and over-exercise.

Her electrolytes were so messed up that, even though she would try to hide it, she was having major problems with coordination and concentration.

She hadn't had periods for at least two years, her hair, teeth and nails were weak and brittle, and the doctors said that she was heading towards osteoporosis.

Dr. Andy was so compassionate and helpful, and his homeopathic remedy and mental-emotional releases seemed to make a difference almost immediately.

Even though my daughter didn't start to gain weight for a couple of weeks, I could see her brighten, relax, and open to the possibility of change.

Little by little, she started eating a little more and relaxing her rigid ideas about food.

It also helped that Dr. Andy was able to tell her what foods were good for her body.

Today, my daughter is happy, healthy, and has no more concerns about weight or body image.

Her periods are normal again too, and she doesn't even have anymore bad dreams or disturbed sleep either.

J.D., West Vancouver (British Properties), BC

I don't know how but your homeopathic technique and neuroemotional work brought colour to my life again.

The voices stared going away after the first session and I don't feel so numb, dead or ambivalent all the time now.

I'm also not so worried or paranoid and can actually relax and be comfortable around people.

I don't feel so irritable or anxious all the time and I'm even not so clumsy or accident prone now.

B.W., Victoria (Saanich), BC

I just wanted to send you a big huge thank you!!

That cream is wonderful!

i put it on last night and this morning and my fingers feel great!

I have given my sister some of the cream that you gave me for my nephew and we think that it is helping and in fact their naturopath wants them to use it exclusively!

Julie V., North Vancouver (Delbrook), BC

I feel like my old self again! My energy is better that it's been in years, and I haven't got sick once since I started seeing you.

Charlotte R., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

I visited Dr. Andy for depression and after a thorough interview and muscle resistence testing I was prescribed a remedy and given a Bowen treatment.

I was literally a new person the morning after the treatment and felt ready to tackle the world again.

Dr. Andy is sympathetic and intuitive as well as knowledgeable.

His intense desire to help his patients and deep compassion brought about these quality results.

I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Andy to my friends and family.

Pam Johnson, Vancouver (Kerrisdale), B.C.

Andy helped me overcome my battles with alcohol addiction, and I don't get anymore liver pain.

The warts on my feet are gone, and I don't get the tonsillitis every winter like I used too either.

K.S., West Vancouver (Dundarave), BC

Before your homeopathic remedy, neuroemotional releases, and Bowen technique, my heart, eyes, legs and emotions were all twitchy and anxious.

Now I'm calmer and healthier physically and emotionally.

Not to mention that I understand the real reason that I was getting all of these twitchy nervous symptoms in the first place.

Some things that I barely even mentioned in our first session, like the pain in my big toe and the numbness and pain on the bottom of my foot, have improved since your naturopathic treatment.

Adam S., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

I haven't been thinking about death at all these days. I've been getting more motivated and less depressed, and don't look at everything like it's the end of the world. My family and friends also say that I'm more independent and less clingy / needy.

E.A., Langley (Brookswood / Fernridge), B.C.

My tongue doesn't have that white, fuzzy coating anymore since your homeopathic treatment.

And it doesn't look so swollen, feel so sore, or seem to bleed as much.

Also, I'm not sure if it's the bowen technique or that neuroemotional work, but something you've done has made me feel so normal, that I almost forget I used to have such terrible burping, nausea, and heartburn.

Brittany, Port Coquitlam, BC
