This podcast is the second part of my interview with noted homeopath Gaya Bhola, who uses homeopathy to help people heal their body and grow spiritually.
Homeopathic medicine is based on the idea that "like cures like". It was originated by Samuel Hahnemann who lived in the late 1700’s. He found that by giving people very dilute doses of common plants and minerals, repeatedly that they would get certain symptoms. This he called a "proving".
He kept very strict records of his work and all the symptoms that taking the same medicine over and over multiple times for days or weeks would produce. This is very analogous to a modern person taking a drug over and over too frequently and getting side effects.
He then used this information when a patient came to visit him. He would carefully notate all of the patient's symptoms and see which of the many different homeopathic medicines he had tested would produce those same symptoms. He then gave this "medicine" to the patient in a very dilute dose and the patient's symptoms would resolve and they would get well. This lay the foundation for homeopathy.
Since that time much study has been done on homeopathy and the variety of naturally occurring substances that have been tested has expanded tremendously. Today's homeopath is much more sophisticated than Samuel Hahnemann could have ever been, and a gifted homeopath is able to decipher the patient's symptom complex and address it with a homeopathic remedy.
If you want to learn more about homeopathy I would prefer you to Dana Ulman’s excellent book at Amazon here or another one if his books HERE
