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

Andy's bowen technique cured the laryngitis and acid reflux I used to get for years.

His neuroemotional work (NET) made my cough and depression almost totally cured too.

Kate R, West Vancouver (Caulfield / Horseshoe Bay), BC

I truly believe that, without Andy's homeopathic remedy and the neuroemotional work we did, I wouldn't have come back from my thyroid cancer.

I've been cancer-free for almost a decade now.

I also used to have to avoid cell phones and X-rays because they would make me feel like crap and affect my bowels, but am not so sensitive to radiation now thanks to the homeopathy.

James L, Delta (North Delta), BC

The shoulder is a lot better! Before I couldn’t even lift things with it - now I’m back gardening and skating regularly. 

My cold actually went away very quickly with the treatment, too – I felt better almost immediately.

My sinuses don’t hurt like they used to, and I don’t get the headaches any more either. Where I injured my head with the concussion doesn’t hurt anymore, and I don’t think I’m as accident prone as I was before either.

I’ve even lost weight over the last few months. 

I originally had a tendency to run around and try to do way too many things at once, and then only do things half or three quarters of the way. The remedy has helped me learn to gather myself a bit, to get an overview of what’s going on, so that I feel more structured to plan my food and my work.

With my work, I’ve been able to work long hours and then relax after since we began the treament.

Also, when I am at home and with the kids, I am capable of talking to them and doing other things at the same time.

Finally, the anxiety, high blood pressure and palpitations are also much better. I don’t even pay attention to the numbers anymore. I know what I feel, and since your treatment, I feel much better with all of this!

S.A., Richmond, BC

My vision has gotten over 50% better in just a few weeks with the homeopathy, bowen therapy, and neuroemotional technique releases.

I feel great - less stressed, and sleeping well.

Grant D, West Vancouver (Ambleside), BC

Penetrative sex had always been painful and almost impossible for me, and I had started to think I just wasn't meant to have a pleasurable sex life! The homeopathic remedy and naturopathic recommendations have allowed me to enjoy sex with my current partner for the first time ever, and we are both very happy!

Stephanie, Richmond, BC

My 100 year old aunt suffered a bout of shingles after which she had severe neuralgic pain in her left arm and around her torso. The pain was so bad that even her clothing couldn't be tolerated.

Dr. Andy conducted a thorough interview and prescribed a wonderful remedy especially for her.

Within days the pain was forgotten by her body and mind and has never returned. 

Margaret Ball, Vancouver (Kitsilano), BC

Thanks Andy!

I'm more energized and alive than I was even before the beginning of the Addisons.

Aside from the minor, pretty-much negligible flare-up now and again, my eyes, hands and joints aren't inflammed and swollen anymore either.

I don't know how, since I didn't even tell you about it , but I can't remember when I last noticed the warts on the bottom of my feet.

They've become that much less painful and inflammed.

Carlos D., Las Vegas, Nevada

Lucas's adenoids and tonsils were always at least partially enlarged, and they'd get worse whenever he'd get a cold.

Which was like every month.

Since your homeopathic remedy last year, he stopped getting sick as often.

And his glands are almost normal-sized now.

I don't notice him mouth-breathing or snoring very much at all these days.

Becky L, New Westminster, BC

The trembling and shaking is not noticeable anymore, and the muscle weakness and tension is getting less.
It seems like it's gotten better every time I've seen you, so I have hope for it soon going away absolutely!
My eye sight is also stronger through the treatment, and I am not so forgetful or confused now.

Elle C., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), 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
