why use homeopathy

Why use homeopathy? 

Gina Tyler DHOM (www.ginatyler.com; https://homeopathtyler.wordpress.com) 

Are you tired of using drugs that just don’t work? And even worse – each medication comes with a slew of detrimental side effects that are all kept hidden in the tiny fine print. So many folks forget that the human body is a miraculous machine. Our body is capable of great resilience and healing. Over-the-counter and prescribed medications suppress these abilities. This explains why using antibiotics and other drugs to “control” or “manage” symptoms of one illness leads to another more sobering illness, or a worsening of the first one. For example, ear infections frequently return after antibiotics are used. 

So, if you are tired of these drugs, you are in good company. Other people throughout the United States and throughout the world are tired too, and they are turning to homeopathy. It is a centuries old method that empowers us. In fact, nearly 4 million American adults and about 900,000 children use homeopathic remedies each year. 

Homeopathic remedies, unlike medications, do not carry side effects. And even though they are regulated be the FDA, you will not find that ominous small print and warnings of dangers. That’s because there aren’t any. If the remedies are used as directed, they act gently and politely. Moreover, though there are thousands of homeopathic remedies on the market, not one has ever been removed by the FDA for having detrimental side effects! This speaks loudly for homeopathy’s safety, particularly because these remedies have been regulated by the government since the FDA’s inception in the 1940’s. 

How do these reputable homeopathic remedies work? Simply put, our body can come to balance (health) if given the correct stimulus. This is achieved by using a remedy that is chosen not for the disease, but instead for the person experiencing the illness. This means that the choice is specifically tailored to that person. 

Let’s say 10 children who are in school together get a fever. Although it may seem that they have all gotten the same “bug”, the fever presents itself differently in each child. Each child would get a completely different homeopathic remedy that fits them uniquely. By stimulating the body’s ability to bring itself to health, each of these youngsters will not only resolve their fever within hours to a day or so, they will also be left in a better state than before the fever presented itself. 

Why wouldn’t a parent want homeopathy in their house? What could be better than ridding a child of their fever, not by suppressing it and inviting the illness to return later, but by removing it gently and safely? Self sufficiency is a goal that many of us want to attain. Homeopathy is the ultimate road towards that goal. I invite you to join me and the millions of others who have eliminated the danger of superfluous drugs and have instead adopted safe and powerful homeopathic remedies.

High blood pressure using homeopathy

Homeopathic Medicines For High Blood Pressure

The top homeopathic medicines to manage high blood pressure (HBP) are Aconitum Napellus, Glonoinum, Crataegus Oxyacantha, Nux vomica, Kali Phos and Natrum Mur.

1. Aconitum Napellus

Aconitum Napellus is a natural medicine sourced from plant monkshood. It can be used for managing high blood pressure along with anxiety and restlessness. The person markedly feels a sudden fear of death. Other accompanying symptoms include palpitations, pressure on the left side of the chest, and sensation of weight under the breastbone. Pain in the heart extending to the left shoulder is also felt.

Key indicating features

High blood pressure along with anxiety and restlessness

2. Glonoinum

Glonoinum is a well-indicated medicine for high blood pressure accompanied by headache which is throbbing and bursting type. Strong palpitations, difficulty in breathing and heat on the face are felt. The person senses pressure in the heart as if heart is contracted. The pain in the heart may radiate to other body parts. Exertion leads to rush of blood to the heart.

Key indicating features

High blood pressure with a throbbing headache

3. Crataegus Oxyacantha

Popularly known as heart tonic, it is a natural medicine sourced from the plant ‘hawthorn berries’. The foremost action of this medicine is to dissolve the calcareous deposits in the arteries, which helps to lower blood pressure. The main symptom that guides its use is difficulty in breathing from the least exertion. Some other symptoms indicative of this medicine include pain in the heart, pressure on the chest, and anxiety-accelerated pulse which is irregular.

Key indicating features

Indicated to dissolve calcareous deposits in arteries to bring blood pressure down

4. Nux Vomica

Nux Vomica is a medicine suitable for HBP, especially in young people who adopt sedentary (sitting for long time periods consistently with little or no physical activity) and modern lifestyle habits like smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of exercise, etc. These factors predispose a person to high blood pressure.

Key indicating features

5. Kali Phos

Kali Phos is a leading homeopathic medicine to manage stress and several stress-related complaints, including high blood pressure. It is recommended for a person who constantly remains under constant stress and worry. The patient may face symptoms including palpitations from slight motion, shortness of breath, irregular pulse, along with both mental and physical fatigue.

Key indicating feature

To manage high blood pressure linked with stress and worries

6. Natrum Mur

Natrum Mur is one of the most prescribed remedies for cases of high blood pressure in those with salt tooth (cravingy for salty foods). Though there is a restriction for excess salt intake for persons suffering from HBP, it is seen that there is an unusual craving for salty things like pickles, papads etc.  Due to this, there may be swelling of feet in the morning. Natrum Mur may be given in cases where there is an unusual fatigue especially in the morning. A person may feel tight around the chest and bears intense palpitations on the slightest exertion. Natrum Mur may also relieve headache caused due to high blood pressure.

Application of oils on your belly button

Bet you didn’t know this! 😉 You’ll appreciate your Belly Button now!

The Navel:

Did you know why you should put different oils in & on the belly button?

Our Navel (Nabhi), is an amazing gift -According to science, the first part created after conception is the navel. After it is created, it joins the mother’s placenta through the umbilical cord.

Our Navel is surely an amazing thing! All our veins are connected to our navel, which makes it the focal point of our body. The belly button is life itself!

The “Pechoti” is behind the navel, which has more than 72,000 veins. The total amount of blood vessels we have in our body is equal to double the circumference of the earth.

We knew that to lower the temperature to the babies, we put a cotton swab with alcohol in the navel, now we know that with oil, it’s better.

Applying oil in the navel heals the dryness of the eyes, poor view, the pancreas, the heels, and chapped lips, keeps the face bright, the hair healthier, for knee pain, the chills, lethargy, pain in the joints and dry skin.

Apply Neem Oil in your belly button – to get rid of stubborn pimples and acne.

Apply Almond Oil in your belly button- to help achieve a glowing face.

Apply Mustard Oil in your belly button – to get rid of dry, chapped lips. Will also keep your intestines moving to remove harmful bacteria but keep the good. Actually works as a mild detox.

Apply olive oil or coconut oil – to improve your fertility.

Keep alcohol dipped cotton on your belly button – to cure a cold, flu and a running nose. When a baby has stomach pain, we put a few drops directly in the navel and we give the massage around the naval a few minutes, the pain is cured. Oil works the same way.

Keep brandy-soaked cotton ball on your belly button – to ease menstrual pain and cramps.

Sesame Oil is used for all types of joint pains. It is also known to strengthen bones. Many parents use in their children every night at bedtime.

Use an equal amount of Mustard Oil And Ginger Oil For Upset Stomach, Bloating, Nausea and digestive problems.

Using Warm Ghee improves blood flow to the nervous system and also enhances the immunity system. It cures constipation and builds a strong digestive system. It gives relief from joint pain.

Thyme oil is anti-spasmodic, it helps relax your arteries and veins, lowering blood pressure and stress to your heart. It may also help strengthen and tone your heart muscles.

As a diuretic, Thyme oil may help your body to remove excess water, salt and toxins from your body, helping with weight, blood pressure, digestion, and more.

Thyme oil is an expectorant, which means it can help remove mucus from your airways and lungs. Thyme oil is approved by Germany’s Commission E in the treatment of bronchitis, whooping cough, and upper respiratory inflammation.

Remember Thyme oil is a powerful compound and should not be used directly on your skin, as this can cause sensitization and irritation. It must first be diluted with a carrier oil (like olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil). Thymus Vulgaris) Essential Oil 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade is what you look for.

    At night before bed, put 3 drops of Castor oil in your navel and spread it 1 and a half inches around your navel.

Place 5 drops into belly button and let it soak up. Do this in place of orally if you don’t the taste 🙂 or if your little ones can’t take it orally.


At night before bed, put 3 drops of mustard oil in your navel and spread it 1 and a half inches around your navel.

Your Navel can detect which veins have dried up and by putting oil, those nerves open them…

You can keep a small eyedropper jar with the oil required next to your bed and place a few drops in your navel before going to sleep. This will make it convenient to pour and avoid accidental spills.

Now you know how amazing your naval truly is!

Adverse reactions to the mRNA shot a massive list


Adverse reactions are finally being compiled , perhaps your not familiar with these symptoms , perhaps your experience is different but you may want to read this article and print it out – I guarantee your own doctor will dismiss these as being directly related to this experimental mRNA shot

Acute or chronic what’s the difference

Acute and Chronic (Constitutional) Consultations – What’s the Difference?

One of the first things to know is that not all consultations are the same; an appointment for an acute complaint such as insect bite will be different to a consultation for a chronic condition such as arthritis.

An acute consultation deals with health complaints that have a limited life – they come and go over a short period of time. Acute complaints include things such as migraines, coughs, colds, indigestion, sprains, strains, bruises, stings, burns, diarrhoea, and ear infections.

A consultation for these problems takes less time than one for a long-term chronic complaint.

If you think your ‘acute’ is really just the tip of the iceberg it would be best to book a longer constitutional appointment to deal with the underlying weakness or imbalance that is sustaining it.

Chronic problems such as arthritic pain, irritable bowel syndrome, infertility, asthma and eczema, on the other hand, are not short-lived events – they stay with us and don’t spontaneously resolve.

From the homeopathic perspective they are not even separate complaints but parts of the one larger ‘disease’ caused by the one energetic imbalance.

Chronic complaints require a longer consultation to collect all the information about this imbalance. These consultations are often called constitutional or chronic consultations.

If you are unsure which consultation would be best for you – an acute or a chronic consultation – ask your homeopath at the time of making an appointment.

Acute Appointments – What Your Homeopath Needs to Know

While acute “case-taking” styles may differ from practitioner to practitioner, your homeopath will generally cover the following points:

  • Cause – what, if anything, started the problem.
  • Location – where the problem is.
  • Sensation – what the discomfort or pain feels like.
  • Modalities – situations or circumstances that make the problem feel better or worse.
  • Accompanying symptoms – other symptoms that seem unrelated but which always occur at the same time as the main problem. (Known as concomitants.)

For the purpose of explaining these points, let’s imagine you have a headache. Before it can be treated homeopathically your practitioner will need the following information:

  • Cause: was it triggered by anything – fever, shock, a blow, heat, grief, anxiety, a particular food, or …?
  • Location: where does it hurt – right side, left side, top, temples, forehead, base of skull, or …?
  • Sensation: What does it feel like – throbbing, aching, burning, stabbing, boring, bandlike, or …?
  • Modalities (things that make it better or worse): heat, cold, bending, lying, sitting, moving, eating, drinking, rubbing, light, noise, or …?
  • Accompanying symptoms: are there other symptoms that occur with the headache – food cravings, changes in thirst, itchy skin, cramps, burning eyes, chilliness, or …?

As you can see, a headache is not just a headache in homeopathy! Your homeopath needs this detailed information if they are to make a helpful prescription for you.

Not all Symptoms are Equal

Once the complete symptom profile of your problem has been collected, the homeopath then has to filter the important individualising symptoms of your case from the less important common symptoms.

Pain during a headache, for example, is a common symptom- everyone experiences that.

Pain that is throbbing in nature, however, is not experienced by everyone so is a unique and individualising symptom that will be used to identify the most helpful remedy.

Once filtered, these unique symptoms are graded in importance and the search for a matching remedy begins. Once prescribed, and if correct, a self-healing response in which symptoms resolve and disappear is triggered.

Constitutional or Chronic Consultations – What Your Homeopath Needs to Know

In consultations for chronic health problems, your homeopath will ask questions similar to those for acute complaints.

Remember, from the homeopathic perspective, your current complaints are just separate parts of a much larger imbalance.

Your homeopath has to gather information from all these complaints, and not just the one that led to the appointment, so that a deep-acting remedy that gets to bottom of things can be prescribed.

Physical Complaints

Your homeopath will want to know all the health problems to which you have been prone, either now or in the past.

A good way to bring these complaints to mind is to ask yourself when you have:

  • Visited a doctor or other healthcare practitioner
  • Taken medication (orthodox or complementary)
  • Required hospitalisation or surgery

While your homeopath will certainly help jog your memory during the consultation it is also useful to note them down beforehand (in the order they occurred) for easy recall.

It will also be helpful if you provide reports from relevant pathology tests or diagnostic investigations, along with a list of your current medications.

Your Individual Response

As your homeopath collects the symptoms that create a picture of your particular imbalance, they may ask questions about:

  • The strength of your thirst and appetite, the type of food you normally eat, and especially food cravings and aversions, and any foods that disagree with you.
  • Sleep patterns, repetitive dreams, and even the position you sleep in.
  • The sort of weather that does or doesn’t suit you.
  • Your reactions to things such as different environments, animals, music, and company – do you enjoy or avoid them?

Children – Additional Information

If the consultation is for an infant or young child, your homeopath will also be interested in the mother’s physical and emotional state before and during pregnancy; the pregnancy and birthing experience; vaccines given and possible reactions; plus the time it took for the infant to reach “milestones” such as teething, walking and talking.

Temperament and Personality

Excesses in personality traits are also symptoms of ill health. For example, being careful with money and using it wisely is a good thing but if spending creates anxiety that leads to hoarding, a problem exists.

Similarly, there is nothing wrong with being organised and neat but if these good traits are replaced by obsessive tidiness or controlling behaviour, the person is no longer operating from a place of health.

Changes in behaviour during sickness are also important. If you are normally calm and relaxed, but have become irritable and fussy in your illness, your homeopath will note these changes as symptoms.

One of the amazing things about homeopathy is that the correct treatment can put you back in control of your moods and behaviours rather than them controlling you.

Anxieties, Fears, Phobias

Fears and phobias such as: the dark; animals; heights; poverty; something happening to family members; cancer; thunderstorms; snakes; crossing bridges, and a range of other things should not be thought of as a normal of life.

They also are symptoms of imbalance that point to the needed remedy and they should resolve with treatment.

Other Things

Your homeopath may ask about your family medical history.

Tendency to diseases such as cancer, heart disease, lung problems, strokes, and mental disorders in other family members may indicate remedies that could help you.

Your homeopath will also check for things that are the cause of your health problem or acting as a barrier to healing.

A person with respiratory problems, for example, will not improve in a mouldy house. Likewise, constant exposure to harsh chemicals will not only cause dermatitis but stop it from healing even though the correct remedy may be prescribed.

In both these instances the best solution is to remove the maintaining cause.

Finally, your homeopath will refer you to your doctor for pathology or diagnostic tests should your symptoms indicate the possibility of a more serious disorder that has not yet been diagnosed.

Reviewing What’s Important

A well-trained and capable homeopath treats the diseased person according to the symptoms they experience rather than by the name of their disease.

As discussed in the acute treatment section of this article, they do this by focussing on the person’s unique symptoms of their illness rather than the common symptoms of the disease – the symptoms that everyone with that disease would experience.

(In contrast, a conventional doctor is dependent on those common symptoms for their prescribing and the unique individualising symptoms are of little importance.)

The sufferer’s unique symptoms are then graded in importance and matched to a remedy to stimulate a curative response from the body.

This process takes time. The first consultation with a homeopath will be longer than a normal visit to a doctor but if it starts the journey back to health, it is time well spent.

Agoraphobia try homeopathy

Homeopathic Treatment of Agoraphonia

Homeopathy is a medical therapy that will avoid some of the side-effects and adverse reactions of conventional medical treatment. Homeopathy is the second most popular medical therapy in the world, and the most popular holistic system of medicine. Homeopathy is based on remedies made from a variety of different substances, all of which are known to cause symptoms of illness if taken in their normal form. However, homeopathy has discovered that substances that cause symptoms of illness can also cure those same symptoms of illness. 

This is the principle of “Like cures Like” on which all homeopathy is based.

The task of the homeopath is to find a remedy whose symptom picture matches the symptoms of a person’s illness. These remedy symptom pictures have been developed over the last 220 years.

The selection of a homeopathic remedy is based on the individual’s symptoms of illness, not on any broad conventionally-defined illness. It is important to stress this. Homeopathy does not treat illness or diseases. Instead it treats an individual who has been diagnosed with a particular illness or disease..

As far as Agoraphonia is concerned, homeopathy has highlighted a number of remedies that have been found to be useful in its treatment. The Natural Health Facts website has outlined some simple remedy pictures for a number of these remedies. All the remedies mentioned are safe, and any remedy that matches the patient’s symptoms will be effective. These simple remedy pictures give some indication of the types of symptoms they will treat.


This is the primary remedy. Panic attack when out in public. A fear of panic attack. 

Etiology; from a fright, a near accident, or was robbed, sent them into a shock-fear state.

Outside cues bring on a rush of adrenalin in two stages.

          First: Panic attacks occur at periodic intervals,induced by some cues in the environment, reminds them of fright or

anticipation and panic. Vicious cycle.

          Second: Fright has happened, person goes into a milder form of constant panic and fear. Never recovers. Aconite is then the

chronic remedy.


Panic attacks similar to Aconite. Out in the world. Anxiety level raises and they start getting palpitations and that creates a circuit. Worry about fears in the world – anxiety- worry about blood pressure or heart – anxiety – palpitations – panic attack. Fears and phobias. Classic fight or flight syndrome. More physical and adrenalin rush. They are more concerned with their heart and blood pressure. Hypo-chondriacal people. Fear of disease contamination in public.


From hypersensitivity to the environment. Their environment overwhelms them. They are too susceptible. Things influence them too deeply. They can fell another’s pain and suffering.The anxiety is always there like background music. They avoid going out into the world, it is too overwhelming. Blood sugar attacks. If they don’t eat they will get an attack. One of the main remedies for hypoglycemia and diabetes. Phosphorous people have to constantly carry heavy food around to ground them. If they don’t eat they get spacey, hypersensitive and then they will panic.


Too concerned about health and getting a disease. Germs, infections and a fear of being poisoned. They do not trust the world in general. Fear of robbers, being harmed or attacked. Very strong anxiety about health, pesticides, pollution. chemicals. Seniors will lock themselves in their house, very suspicious. The world is a hostile place, full of bad people that can hurt you. When they do go outside the anxiety and restlessness is overwhelming. Not necessarily a panic attack.


Panic attacks due to a superstitous nature. Fears that something will happen. Something strange and peculiar will happen if they go out. They get a repetitive idea that something will happen. An idea that I will trip down the stairs. Usually strange things.

Fear of going out. Fear of the street. Especially after someone has been injured. Fear of walking across a busy street.

Homeopathy Treatment for shingles

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat shingles but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several well-proved medicines are available in the treatment for shingles that can be selected on the basis of cause, location, sensation, modalities and extension of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. Few important homeopathic medicines which are helpful in the treatment for shingles are given below:

Sepia, Tellurium, Capsicum, Natrum mur, Rhus tox, Arsenic album, Hepar sulph, Nitric acid, Caladium, Carbo aeg, Ranunculous bulbous and many other medicines.

Isopathy understand it’s use

Isopathy is the use of a potentised substance that could cause a symptom or disease, to treat or relieve that same symptom or disease in the unwell.

Drawn from the Greek, isopathy means ‘equal or same suffering’. This differs from homeopathy’s underpinning principle of ‘similar suffering’ and conventional medicine’s allopathic approach of ‘opposite suffering’.

Potentised remedies prepared from harmful substances and used isopathically to treat symptoms caused by them are called ‘isodes’.

The following are some examples of what would be an isopathic approach:

  • Potentised peanuts to potentially treat peanut allergy
  • Potentised cat hair to treat potentially cat hair allergy
  • Potentised gonorrhoea to potentially treat a gonorrhoeal infection
  • Potentised breast cancer cells to potentially treat breast cancer
  • Potentised vaccines to potentially treat vaccine injury
  • Potentised lead to potentially treat lead poisoning
  • Potentised antibiotics to potentially treat antibiotic reactions
  • Potentised tubercular discharge to potentially treat tuberculosis

The isopathic approach was first introduced and used early in homeopathy’s history by the veterinarian Wilhelm Lux. Over the subsequent 200 years it has had regular surges and lapses in popularity.

Hahnemann on Isopathy

Hahnemann, founder of homeopathy, experimented with isopathy and supported its use within certain limits. These were:

  1. Isopathy is best used for acute (self-limiting) disease and infections rather than chronic disease, and
  2. Isopathy is not a ‘cure-all’ as treatment often has to include standard homeopathic remedies from the plant, animal and mineral kingdoms for complete success.

Hahnemann refuted the claim that isopathy was a separate or better medical system by providing evidence and examples (1, 2.) of how a ‘same’ could not and would not treat as well as a ‘similar’.

Isopathic Examples

The following two examples help to demonstrate the isopathic effect.

  1. Homeopathy alleviated a situation of chronic and inescapable arsenic poisoning for villagers: Studies: Homeopathy for Arsenic Poisoning
  2. Erica quickly created a hand-potentised isopathic remedy to help her young daughter during an emergency. (You could too in a similar situation.) Dishwashing liquid? – You’re soaking in it!

Several studies in which small animals were poisoned or exposed to toxic substances have also been conducted. We do not support animal testing as it is usually unnecessary and potentially cruel but these studies can be found with an internet search.

Limitations of Isopathy

In spite of its simple appeal, isopathy has limitations. These include:

  • The use of isopathy alone provides incomplete treatment as, apart from symptoms of the immediate problem, all other symptoms are ignored and remain untreated.
  • As isopathic treatments do not reflect the complete disease (mistunement) of the vital (life) force benefits are limited for the treatment of chronic cases. Further treatment with standard remedies will be needed.
  • Because isopathy is a simple this-for-that approach, there has been little incentive to put isodes through formal homeopathic provings. As a result, the full symptom picture of most isodes is unknown.
  • Unless the prescriber and patient fully understand the isopathic approach and its limitations, both may mistakenly believe they are engaging in full homeopathic treatment but not receive its full benefits.

Usefulness of Isopathy

Isopathy may be helpful in certain instances. These are:

  • Isopathy is a simple this-for-that approach that is easy to understand and apply. Very little training is required.
  • Isopathy offers a quick response for immediate poisoning or sudden infectious acutes- as long as the isode for that particular problem is available or can be quickly be made by hand.
  • Occasionally, well-chosen homeopathic remedies fail to act. If the person has a history of having ‘never been well since …”, the isopathic use of what may have been the initial cause of the problem such as an infection or toxic exposure can sometimes remove an ‘energetic block’ so that cure can then be completed by the initial homeopathic remedy.

In summary, the isopathic treatment approach is best reserved for immediate acute complaints caused by a pathogen or toxin, or as an attempt to remove a ‘blockage’, and in the knowledge that the most similar homeopathic remedy will likely still be needed to complete a treatment process.
