The term homeopathy arises from the root words: homios meaning 'similar' and pathos meaning 'suffering.'
Homeopathic principles are based on the law of similars – what
something can cause, it can also cure. In other words, like cures like.
The goal of homeopathy is to liberate the vital force where it is
constrained, distorted, or suppressed
Homeopathy is unique in that it looks at the individualizing characteristics of
a client's particular symptoms. Because there are over 4,000 homepathic
remedies, the homeopath needs a way of narrowing the possiblities. This is
achieved by considering a combination of physiological and narrative data:
the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual characteristics of one's life
experience indicate a signature pattern. This particular pattern helps the
homeopath determine the individual remedy picture of each client. Homeopathy
does not pathologize as much as it seeks to understand what is motivating the
specific symptomoloy of a person.
Homeopathy intersects beautifully with depth psychological and somatic principles, as
homeopathic remedies are tools that can facilitate subtle yet profound shifts
in the inner perspective of a person. After a remedy, many clients become
aware of a perspecitve that had been entirely below the conscious surface
prior to the remedy. The old pattern is lost from this new vantage point, and the
expression of symptoms shifts to reflect the change in consciousness.
"The human being holds a universe within, filled with overlapping frequencies and the result is a symphony of cosmic proportions."
– Masaru Emoto
