Homeopathy: Medicine for the 21st Century

Homeopathy is popular and widely practiced all over Europe, South America, and India because it has proved to be effective throughout almost two centuries of practice. In the United States, homeopathic medical schools, hospitals, and clinics were commonplace over one hundred years ago. Today there is a renaissance of interest in homeopathy  in the US as alternatives to traditional Western medicine gain acceptance by both professional health practitioners and lay persons.

In addition, although classical homeopathy has been in existence in its current form for almost two hundred years, relying on the same principles and remedies, it is based on ideas that are only now being explored and verified by cutting-edge research in the physical sciences.

Conditions affected by Homeopathy

Homeopathy is effective for many conditions not well addressed by mainstream allopathic medicine. Homeopathic remedies work by evoking a person’s own healing response. They are gentle and easy to take, usually in the form of small lactose pellets. The remedies are regulated by the FDA and are formulated according to the Homeopathic Pharmacopia of the United States.

Acute Conditions

  • Acute illnesses such as flu, coughs, bladder infections, ear infections
  • Physical and emotional trauma such as sprains, strains, jet lag, grief, anxiety
  • Musculoskeletal conditions such as headaches, sciatica
  • Pregnancy
  • Hayfever
  • Children’s complaints such as teething and colic

Chronic Conditions

Homeopathy can also be highly effective for numerous chronic conditions considered untreatable by conventional allopathic medicine. Disorders of the nervous system, hormonal system and immune system can be addressed with homeopathic care. These are addressed in modules two through six of the Caduceus Institute’s program.

Homeopathy is an excellent choice for babies and children and is an adjunct to the practice of chiropractic, Chinese medicine, massage therapy, and other modalities that support a healing response rather than suppress symptoms. Many flu, cholera, and typhoid epidemics were successfully treated with homeopathy in its early days.

Module One, which is a six month program, gives you the skills to practice acute homeopathy.

Adding this modality to your treatment repertoire can help your clients recover from acute disease more quickly without the harmful side effects of drugs.

For the aspiring homeopath with or without a medical license:

If you have a serious interest in homeopathy, you may wish to take further modules after module one, get clinical training and experience, and become a fully qualified professional homeopath. Please note that there is no licensure of homeopaths at this time. Completing our study modules gives you a good foundation in classical homeopathy, but does not give you a license to practice. Some states have now have health freedom laws protecting the practice of alternative healing arts, including homeopathy.
