Homeopathic remedies (also called homeopathics) are a system of medicine based on three principles:
*Like cures like
For example, if the symptoms of your cold are similar to poisoning by mercury, then mercury would be your homeopathic remedy.
The remedy is taken in an extremely dilute form, normally one part of theremedy to around 1,000,000,000,000 parts of water.
*The single Remedy
No matter how many systems are experienced, only one remedy is taken, and that remedy will be aimed at all those symptoms.
Similar principals forms the basis of conventional allergy treatment, where the allergic substance is given in a small dose, and in vaccines where an important form of the virus is given to bolster the immune system against the particular virus.
Why use Homeopathics?
Homeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine ion the world. Its growth in popularity in the United States has been around 25 to 50 percent a year throughout the last decade.
This success is fueled by several factors:
*Homeopathy is extremely effective. When the correct remedy is taken, resultscan be rapid, complete and permanent.
*Homeopathy is completely safe. Even babies and pregnant women can use
Homeopathy without danger of side effects. Homeopathic remedies can also be taken alongside other medication without producing unwanted side effects.
*Homeopathy is natural. Homeopathic remedies are normally based on natural ingredients.
*Homeopathy works in harmony with your immune system, unlike some conventional medicines which suppress the immune system. (For example, cough medicines suppress the cough reflex, which is your body’s attempt to clear the lungs).
*Homeopathic remedies are not addictive-once relief is felt, you should stop taking them, if no relief is felt, you are probably taking the wrong homeopathic remedy.
*Homeopathy is holistic. It treats all the symptoms as one, which in practical terms mean that it addresses the cause, not the symptoms. This often means that symptoms tackled with Homeopathy so not recur.
In Homeopathy, there is a special type of remedy called a nosode. A nosode (from nosos, the Greek word meaning disease) is a homeopathic preparation made from matter from a sick animal or person. Substances such as respiratory discharges or diseased tissues are used. It sounds repulsive, but the preparation, using alcohol, as well as the repeated dilution and succession, essentially renders the substances harmless, while producing a powerful and useful remedy. The use of nosodes in a prophylactic manner, for preventing disease, has been employed in veterinary and human homeopathy for many, many years. It is supported by various holistic veterinarians and authors. For more information go to www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com
What is Vaccinosis?
With “Routine” vaccines that are repeated year after year, the frequency and severity of adverse side-effects (either short or long term) in our pets has increased dramatically. Most of the problems involve the immune system. After all, the immune system is what vaccines are designed to stimulate. But they do so in a very unnatural way that can overwhelm and confuse the immune system. For more information go to www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com
Vaccinosis is the term applied to the state of disease, most often chronic-long term, which occurs in humans and animals after immunization vaccinations have been administered. For most pets the symptoms are not easily recognized in the beginning, an insidious disease, taking weeks, months and sometimes even years before the care-giver realizes what has occurred over this period of time, and not the root cause. Sadly, some people never discover that the root cause started with vaccines.
Our human & animal bodies, in a state of optimal health are capable of developing natural immunity to invading substances without the use of vaccines. “Optimal Health” would be a state of health in which all of the cells of our body were perfectly healthy, functioning without hindrance of toxins or poorly performing organs and reduced enzymatic processes. “Natural Immunity” is the function of our cells building defense against viral and other harmful substances with which we may come into contact. And “without vaccines” means exactly what it says” Without the use of toxin filled, manufactured immunization vaccinations administered ‘unnaturally’ into ours and our pets muscles without having been tested for long term safety or for damaging, permanent side effects.
