EDITORIAL – Keep the Flame Burning

EDITORIAL August 2019

Think of Hpathy.com and its journal Homeopathy for Everyone as the community’s website, the people’s website. It serves the community, and its contents, all those articles and cases, are created by you. When I’m asked what kind of cases to send, I usually answer, “whatever resonates with you.”  If you’re proud of your work, readers will appreciate it and learn from it. Another thing, cases don’t have to be sensational. They only need to demonstrate the basic methods homeopaths use to take, analyze and manage a case. There’s plenty of magic in that! Some cases will be straightforward where the remedy was correctly chosen and the suffering relieved. Most cases will require some trial and error, and these provide even more opportunity for learning. Readers want to understand your effort, the kind of decisions you made, your moments of uncertainty and your successes.

Articles can be on any topic. They can be an objective discussion of some aspect of homeopathy, a sharing of personal experience, or an opinion piece. Every time you share a case, article, research paper, book review, interview or a personal story, it keeps the flame of homeopathy burning.  Your contribution stays in Hpathy’s archives, so people around the world can read it next month, next year, and in years to come.

Here are some highlights from this issue:

This month we have Part 2 of David Nortman’s interview with Dr. Harry van der Zee, who discusses his experience with Peter Chappell’s PC Resonances in the treatment of AIDS and malaria epidemics in Africa. If you’ve wondered about the PC remedies, this will make very interesting reading.

Homeopath Martin Costigan presents an Argentum nitricum case that included obsessive-compulsive traits, a history of abuse and multiple fears. His article “Wet Split Dosing” uses the Argentum case to illustrate the benefits of this dosing method.

Dr. Seema Mahesh et. al. shares a detailed case report of “Individualised Homeopathic Therapy in ANCA Negative Rapidly Progressive Necrotising Crescentic Glomerulonephritis with Severe Renal Insufficiency”, a marvelous example of what homeopathy can accomplish in such a critical acute.

Homeopath Susan Houghton shares her account of “Helping a Client Thrive After Breast Cancer.” This is another aspect of homeopathy that needs more attention.

In “Too Occupied by Religion” homeopath Maja Letić discusses the way various remedies express their religiosity.

Dr. Frances Bloomington shares his knowledge and personal tips in his article “Homoeopathic Nosodes.”

There are numerous other fine cases and articles (see below). Be sure to visit the Plant Doctor column where Radko Tichavsky offers advice that is light years ahead of anything in conventional agriculture.  Also, check out Dr. Deva Khalsa’s “Ask the Holistic Vet” column. Dr. Khalsa has a vast repertoire of holistic treatments that include homeopathy, NAET, stem cell therapy, preventive nutrition and much more.  For the Plant Doctor and Holistic Vet, send your questions by the 6th of the month to [email protected]

Don’t miss this month’s homeopathy crossword puzzle, Elaine Lewis’ “Questions Patients Ask” and her QUIZ and the Quiz answer from last month; the “Tips & Secrets” column and the Cartoon.

  • My thinking about Homeopathy

    When a substance, in liquid form, is diluted exponentially, a stage is reached when it is converted into energy.
    E=mc2 (Einstein).

    When this energy, having the same vibration energy as that of the ailing organ is administered, a resonance effect is created. Acquiring this additional energy, the ailing organ feels energized and the person feel better and in time is cured.
