Homeopathy: A Long History of Natural Remedies

Did you know that homeopathy has been around for centuries? In fact, there’s a long and rich history of natural remedies and their usage around the world. In the late 1700s Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a medical school graduate, started his own medical practice. But Hahnemann was disillusioned with the common medical practices of the day. Bloodletting, purging, and toxic chemicals didn’t seem, in his estimation, to be the best way to practice medicine. So, Hahnemann began experimenting with alternative remedies made from natural substances. Eventually, he stopped practicing and went into the lab—becoming a chemist and, at the same time, working as a translator of medical texts. In his translation work he discovered the principle of “similars” –or what homeopaths now recognize as the “Law of Similars.” The Law of Similars is the theory that like cures like or “similar symptoms” produced can offer similar cures. For example, Hahnemann learned that the bark of a species of tree in South America that was used to treat malaria-induced fevers. Interestingly though, this bark, when ingested, caused similar symptoms to those caused by the actual disease—malaria. Thus, he concluded, using substances that may invoke similar symptoms in healthy person may be effective to treat someone suffering with those symptoms in sickness. This concept remains a tenant of homeopathy today. Another main tenant of homeopathy is the concept that the human body has the ability to cure itself. This concept has also been researched, studied and explored for hundreds of years. In fact, the first Homeopathic Medical School in the United States was founded in the late 1800s. By the early 1900s, schools such as Stanford, Boston University, and New York Medical College were all teaching homeopathy. The practice became very popular because of how successfully homeopathic medicine was treating rampant diseases of the era. The early 1900s was a time when scarlet fever, typhoid, cholera, and yellow fever were killing many. By the early 1900s there were 22 homeopathic medical schools and 100 homeopathic practicing hospitals. But, with the advent of modern drug companies in the early 1920s, came a shift away from natural cures. As pharmaceutical companies began to work with doctors to release their engineered medications, homeopathic traditions were replaced. Many of the U.S. schools that were teaching homeopathy, shifted towards a focus on treatment using modern medicines. Around the globe, homeopathic remedies and medicines remained popular and homeopathy has flourished in many parts of the world because homeopathic remedies are generally more affordable, all-natural, have no side effects (or harsh chemicals), and no drug interactions. Homeopathic medicines have been helping people for centuries.

Detox Time? How to Tell if Your Body Needs a Natural Detox

The holidays can be taxing on our bodies! Stress, sugar, environmental toxins, and chemicals in our food put a strain on all of our systems that can leave us feeling sluggish, foggy, or blah. Our bodies were designed to detoxify themselves, but sometimes when all the toxins hit at once–the organs designed to help us detox need a little help to get the job done. Wondering if you need a little help in this area? Here’s how to tell if your body needs a natural detox. Your Body Needs a Detox if: You Feel Fuzzy in the Head or Have Chronic Headaches Brain feel foggy? Head won’t stop hurting but you know you’re not sick, hugry, or dehydrated? These could be signs that your body is crying for detoxification help.  Without another medical explanation, headaches are often a sign that something is going on in your body and your body wants you to take notice. Toxin overload can also cause brain fog—that feeling where you just can’t think clearly. The good news is, after a few days or weeks of detoxing, these symptoms usually alleviate themselves. Your Body Needs a Detox if: You Have Digestive Issues Constipation or diarrhea, gas, bloating and other digestive issues can be signs that your digestive system is slowing down and “gunked” up. Toxins are normally to blame. Processed foods, sugar, and a lack of fiber can all put a strain on your colon and intestines making things move along a lot slower than they should. Watching your diet, focusing on nutrient-rich, fibrous, and raw foods can help aid your detoxification process. Your Body Needs a Detox if: You Have Skin Issues Dry, wrinkled, dull skin or acne and rashes—these are all ways your skin can exhibit signs of toxin overload. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and an important part of the excretory system. But, sometimes the toxic load is too high and your skin will show the signs of being bogged down with toxins. Drinking a lot of fresh water can help you flush your system while using a homeopathic detox product to gently inspire your body to flush what it needs to so your skin can look bright and clear. Your Body Needs a Detox if: You’re Always Tired Fatigue and sluggishness are other signs that your body is working too hard to try to get rid of the toxins slowing it down. If you sleep all night and still wake up tired, or if you find yourself leaning heavily on caffeine and sugar to stay awake through the day—consider the reality that it is time for a detox!
