Do you have a herniated spinal disk? Well I have, more than once, and know how your feel. For me it was an agonizing event because the herniated disk pressed and pinched my sciatic nerve. I couldn’t sit, lie, or sleep. Chiropractic adjustments weren’t bringing any relief and anti-inflammatories were burning my stomach. The only thing which brought any short term relief was to keep walking. I had to walk and walk and walk. The second I stopped, it was as if the pain was chasing right behind me and would catch me. The worst pain occurred when I had been sitting or lying still and then started to change position. Instead of sleep, I walked round and round in circles at night. At this time I was a Homeopathic student and started trying some remedies which might fit the symptom pattern described above. After a few tries, I took 2 of those little pellets of Homeopathic sulphur. In fives seconds, yes, five seconds!, a sudden flash of heat emanated from my lower back followed instantly by a rash going going down my sciatic nerve and rashes on both my feet ad hands which itched voluptuously. Then I noticed 90 percent of the pain was gone. This all happened in a matter of a couple minutes. The rash lasted a few hours and by the next day, the pain was gone and function was restored!. This is results based medicine.

I'm a Homeopathic Practitioner specializing in helping people with musculoskeletal diseases.
Have you watched those old martial arts movies where the hard training martial artists would get injured and disabled, then suddenly the master teacher pulls out some bag of herbs or does some body manipulation, then like magic the martial arts practitioner is back on his feet as good a as new? In the real world when training hard in our favorite activity, any injury can put a real stop to us and leave us with big medical expenses to boot. At that time how we wish there was some ancient Asian medicine which would be simple to use and get us back to our active life. Well there is good news.
Though movies tend to exaggerate or misrepresent what is possible in reality, there are options available which often can make it possible to avoid risky surgeries and medication, plus minimize your down time in healing. I myself have used these better options time and time again on myself from impact injuries, strains, sprain, torn ligaments, smashed fingers and toes, cuts, abrasions, and ruptured discs. I have successfully treated countless people time and again for injuries and I'm always astounded at the results. This better method I speak of is the 240 years old system of Homeopathy.
Homeopathy is a wondrous, safe, and rapid way to heal from sudden trauma injuries to the body structure. Homeopathy is useful in all phases of injury from simple bruises, to broken bones, to surgery recovery. Different Homeopathic remedies will apply to different situations, so you need a highly trained professional Homeopath to help you in most situations. The following is a list of trauma injury situation I have treated or I know have been treated successfully with Homeopathic remedies.
I really get a lot of satisfaction helping people with these injuries because these are the situation where Homeopathy brings fast and striking results. Patients often exclaim the Homeopathy worked like magic. In many Homeopath's experience, depending on the degree of injury, recovery time can be halved or better. If you have received injury and would like to see if there is a better way that taking pain medications, anti-inflammatories, or surgery, I invite you to contact me and make an appointment to get you back on the road to rapid recovery.

Many years ago I was suffering from chronic back pain and sciatica. After having tried Chiropractic and Naturopathic treatments to no avail, the doctors diagnosed degenerative disc disease for which there is no cure. Their treatment was anti-inflammatories and immune system suppression. The doctor gave me a handful of anti-inflammatory samples and sent me on my way with a prescription for more. I stepped out of the doctor’s office, looked at the drugs in my hand, knowing full well the harmful side effects and concluded that there surely must be a better was to treat the sick and suffering. I found that better way in Homeopathy. As a result of the incredible cure I experienced, I wanted to learn more and ended up becoming a Homeopath myself. In these years of practice I have learned that there are people for whom Homeopathy is for and people whom It isn’t. I’ve learned that it is also important that the practitioner and patient be on the same page for the process to work. Here I’m going to provide the qualities and views required of a potential patient whom I can be of service and those whom might be served better by a different practitioner or a different healing method.
The Whole Person:
We will be a match for each other if you accept that the limitations in physical function are a expression of a whole person process which begins in the immaterial realms of mind, thought, life force, breath, and then condenses into susceptibility, symptoms, and pathology. At the very least, you must be willing to accept this theory provisionally while under my therapy.
I ask that you set aside mechanistic theories and disease names. Mechanistic theories are anything which blames external things like pollen, gluten, toxins, mold, and metals. We will look at your lifestyle and sensitivity as part of the whole picture of you with the view to ultimately make you healthy enough to deal with the world without having to fear and control things.
We will be a good match if you can accept that somehow your body with it’s ailments is expressing a vital imbalance from within yourself which you can become aware of and take responsibility for. You have to accept that we have the innate ability to heal ourselves through our own effort and that blaming external things is a obstacle to cure. Remember that if your body made it, it can break it down.
Making an appointment with me and going through a whole person investigation, receiving your remedy, and then becoming suspicious and mistrustful will make progress impossible. It’s best that before you come in, you have worked out any anti homeopathy google propaganda you have been exposed to on line. You need to abandon any Dr. Google diagnoses and self prescribing and give the process a reasonable chance. You need to be willing to take the remedies I suggest and follow the process I lay out. You won’t be told the names of the remedy I give you so that you don’t spoil clear reporting of remedy actions by researching on Dr. Google.
If you have come to my practice, I ask that you have professional respect and respect for the Homeopathic process. Keep your follow up appointments or make timely reschedules and cancellations. Be on time and account for DFW bad traffic. Understand that when you call me, text me excessively, I am working then and I’m working on your case even when you don’t see me by looking at remedies and working on your therapy plan. Pay your fees in a timely manner and avoid haggling. I will respect you by working hard to be your ally in finding what is dis-eased and what is curative. I won't lead you along by telling you what you want to hear and playing smart sounding word games.
In the case of a long standing chronic ailment, you didn’t get this way over night. Along with your ailment there has likely been traditional drugging interference and life traumas which have added more complication onto your problems. Real healing take time and effort. Homeopathy isn’t a quick fix method, it is a healing method. Each individual is different so no one can say exactly what will happen, when it will happen, or how long it will take. Give the process the time needed to evaluate results.
A Better Way:
Most importantly, just like me, there needs to be this deep intuitive voice telling you that what you have been taught since childhood about cause and cure of disease is in error and that there must be a better way. With this view, when you come to my clinic, you and I become part of something bigger than ourselves. We become part of the healing impetus of all nature working together to allow life to flow in inbounding sway as the Universe intended for all beings.
Not a Good Match:
People who can only conceptualize treatment of XYZ disease name and body part.
People who have life threatening pathology needing urgent care.
People in a life threatening emergency such as stroke or heart attack needing emergency care.
People who must blame, be a victim, and control external things.
People on excessive medications like steroids, antibiotics, and psychotropic drugs.
People who think they should mix Allopathy with Homeopathy.
People seeking guaranteed and predictable results.
People who would rather have insurance keep paying for harmful or ineffective treatments than pay out of pocket for a better way not covered by insurance.
People with substance abuse not making efforts to quit.
People who don’t really want to get better and just want a pill.
People who believe for any reason that Homeopathy is dangerous or could or has harmed them in any way.
I know that it is hard to make the shift to some of the views I offer here after having been taught since childhood a different view. You don’t need to out an out believe what I’m saying. All I ask is you accept it provisionally so that we can give the process a reasonable chance so that you can experience the great healing I experienced when I found this better way of Homeopathy in addressing the suffering of humanity.

Very often I get phone calls that go something like this: "Hello, I'm looking for a Homeopathic doctor in the Dallas area who can give me a check up, do blood work, give me a hair analysis just to see if I'm ok." After that I end up having to spend a half hour explaining to them that what they are looking for isn't Homeopathy. They will go on to defend themselves telling me how they had a Homeopathic doctor who did these test, sold them supplements and gave them special diets to follow. I can't afford to waist anymore time in these conversations so I offer this blog to any who want clarification on the issue.
Because Homeopathy isn't a regulated word in the U.S. like "Doctor, Dentist, Chiropractor, Osteopath", anyone may use the term "Homeopathy" any way they want. The word has come to be associated with something natural, holistic and alternative. Unscrupulous alternative health practitioners use this term "Homeopathy" as a marketing buzz word to lure in patients.
Homeopathy is not any form of treatment which involves the chemical molecular manipulation of body. This includes traditional medicine, herbal medicine and supplements..
Homeopathy isn't any form of treatment which involves mechanical manipulation of the body such as Chiropractic, Osteopathy,, Massage Rolfing, Acupuncture/Pressure, Tapping, Yoga or detox.
Homeopathy isn't any form of treatment which involves controlling or manipulating the environment such as Environmental Medicine, Naturopathy or diet.
Homeopathy isn't anything woo woo like psychic readings, horoscopes, hypnosis, meditation, biofeedback or past life regression.
Homeopathy is a system of healing and medicine formulated by Samuel Hahnemann which postulated that the roots of disease are a disturbance in the vital force, which is beyond material investigation, which manifests as susceptibility, symptoms and pathological changes in the function of the body.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine which cures by giving a medicine which produces similar symptoms which the patient is suffering from.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine which has dynamic effect on the vital force only and no material chemical effect. This is achieved by Homeopathy's method of preparation called "Diluting and Succussing". This make is possible to give Homeopathic remedies without fear of side effects or addiction.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine which investigates the totality of physical, mental and emotional characteristic of the disease in order to find the right Homeopathy remedy.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine which seeks the complete removal of the underlying vital disturbance causing the disease resulting in permanent cure.
Now armed with this knowledge, It might be good to ask ourselves, what kind of people would take this word and misrepresent it in order to make money? Are these the kind of people we would want go to when we are suffering from disease and limitation? The choice is yours.

I've listened to and have thoroughly examined the standard arguments for and against single payer government provided healthcare. I've looked at how single payer systems work in Europe, India and Canada. Being a Homeopath practitioner who sees the actual outcomes of traditional medicine on a daily basis, along with my training in Homeopathic philosophy and student of the laws of nature, mind, desire, action and reaction, I will offer my opinion/beliefs on the matter.
Setting aside all hype, marketing and government backed authority on the subject of healthcare, I have concluded that what people do to deal with sickness is purely based on one's beliefs and not results. In order to make it simple and clear I'm going to refer to those in favor of single payer system as "you" and those like me who don't as "I".
You believe that disease is an arbitrary accidentally externally conditioned event imposed upon you by great powers beyond your control. Because of this you believe that it will require a great external power to cure you.
I believe disease is the sedimentation and crystallization of imbalanced thinking which I myself have generated and to which I myself must cure. There are skillful means which can help stimulate a healing reaction within me, but I must take responsibility for my self, my thoughts and my actions to be a proactive self healer to get results which are meaningful.
You believe that no one should suffer or die, and that someone external to you must make great heroic effort do something to take your surfing away and keep you from death.
I believe that suffering comes from nature to point out to us how and where we have gone out of balance and compel change, and that death is inevitable and comes a point when it's foolish and causes more suffering to fight the reality of this.
You believe it is compassionate when someone with authority is doing something about people suffering from disease, even in the case that there are no beneficial results or even worse, making things worse.
I believe it is foolish to do something which makes the problem worse and wise to know when to not do anything at all.
You believe that taking a drug or treatment in antipathy against the disease you are suffering from is curing your of disease.
I believe the short term relief you may get from taking those suppressive drugs is giving you long term, more complicated disease, resulting in even greater suffering and expense. It is taking you further away from a real solution or cure.
You believe in the "war against disease" philosophy of healthcare.
I believe you are fighting laws of karma and nature and that we should treat the person with methods which are in alignment with these karmic and natural laws.
You believe that when your favored form of healthcare is delivered to you for a fee via a free market, then greed drives the motives of providers, and that when government provides it, benevolence motivates providers.
I believe that there is no free market healthcare because of government licensing, regulation and insurance involvement which insures that greed motivates the current state protected system, while in true single payer systems, by and large, mostly ineffective counterfeit healthcare is provided as means of political control and still guarantees big profit to pharmaceutical corporations.
You believe when treatment is heroic, dangerous and life threatening, then it must be powerful and beneficial.
I believe treatment must be safe, gentle and give lasting if not permanent benefit. It must above all do no harm.
You believe the materialistic scientific evidence based methods, which only sees you as a collection of particles and chemical actions, alone are beneficial.
I believe that the best approach to dealing with chronic disease is to treat the whole person addressing the eternal mind stream as it effects the flow of life resulting in effects on the body.
You believe that passive dependence on authority will save you.
I believe reliance on my own inner self healer will guide me to solution.
You believe that because people are innately bad, health care providers need to be regulated by government power.
I believe that because there are bad tendencies in people, government power attracts the worst and thus corrupts healthcare driving out sincere and innovative providers.
You believe state licensing establishes a qualified healthcare provider.
I believe reputation as to results establishes a qualified healthcare provider.
You believe modern healthcare is curing the sick and stopping death.
I believe modern healthcare has given rise to greater suffering through suppression of symptoms, side effect, rebound and making more complicated incurable diseases. Some people who turn to it may get short term relief and live a little longer but the price is great suffering and a more miserable death in the end.
You believe my beliefs are insane.
I believe your belief are ignorant.
You believe I should be forced to pay taxes to fund your beliefs.
I am certain you are taking recourses away from me denying me the right to spend them on the form of healthcare I believe is best for me.
Now I know you may say that in order to make it fair, let us include your beliefs with my beliefs in the single payer system. It's a nice theory, but in reality, in England where they have done this, those who have your belief have declared they don't want to pay taxes to fund my belief and have systematically shut my favored methods out of the system. In other places, to placate tax payer (corporate monopoly) demands, they have corrupted and debased my preferred method through government regulations, so that it doesn't work. In places in India it seems to be working so far, but the political winds are fickle and things can change quickly.
So before we talk about how healthcare should be government provided, we first need to establish that what is provided is of actual measurable beneficial long term positive results which are equal to all, such as roads or parks. As far as I can tell, healthcare has always been and still is based on what a person believes in, just like a religion or space aliens. Should anyone be required to subsidies another persons beliefs? Should a non religious person be required to pay for someone's religion even though it makes them feel better? Do you believe you should be required to subsidies my beliefs here in stated? If it is indeed belief based, shouldn't people be required to pay out of pocket to indulge their beliefs? I leave it to you to ponder.

I see too many patients, adult and children suffering from debilitating lack of self confidence. In fact, this is something Homeopathic treatment can be very helpful with. There are many Homeopathic remedies which have very specific qualities in lack of confidence listed in our mental symptoms rubrics under; timidity, yielding, bashful, want of self confidence, fear of failure, confusion of identity. Many Homeopathic remedies are listed under these rubrics so a practitioner must investigate very carefully the patient's nature to find the one remedy which will be individuated for the specific quality the patient suffers from. Though Homeopathy is very helpful in overcoming lack of confidence and the ailments which come from it, there are some huge obstacles to cure presented to us in this day and time. My purpose here is to point out some of those obstacles and offer some lifestyle changes which will help anyone of normal intelligence to be more confident so they can manifest their dreams in life.
First, let us define confidence. Confidence is certainty in our capacity to do, to be, to will, and to have. Confidence has two fundamental poles. On one side is confidence of who you are, on the other side is confidence that you can do.
Confidence in your self as an identity is developed through identifying with positive role models, good parenting, which results in a self feeling that you are a good person worthy of love, acceptance and inclusion. Confidence in what you can do is developed by learning tasks and skills, building on them and putting them to effective use. When this process doesn't take place, there will be issues, so we need to know what impedes this process.
Each of us comes into life with a predisposition to be either confident or unconfident in general or in specific areas. This is the part which is well addressed with Homeopathic remedies. However, in this heavily success and failure, money and power based age, there are external factors which can limit in the most confident person by nature. Now days people suffer from crippling lack of self confidence due to unrealistic and un-natural standards being presented to them. It's now multigenerational and it's getting worse with each generation. Here, I'm going to list the external factors I'm seeing which are feeding this cycle of destruction of confidence.
1. Children are being born into a time when the purveyors of marketing want everyone to fit into molds. Parents were also raised to fit into the moulds and so therefore are reinforcing these molds on their children. The first mold is the standard of beauty or cuteness. Children who fit more closely with these standards will be treated more positively by their parents, relatives, peers and educators. Those who do not will often fall into the trap of negative self talk which leads to lack of confidence in their identity which leads to manifesting even more unattractive characteristics and behaviors. This will lead to feelings of exclusion and injustice which will result in withdraw and escapism. Parents need to be very careful to not hold their children to these narrow prepackaged standards. They need to treat their children with equal love and cherishing and teach and set an example that beauty of character is what leads to happiness and not the drama roller coaster ride of superficial fleeting physical appearance.
2. People are being held to impossible standards of performance. It begins with exposure to the mythologies presented in the entertainment industry about heroes and villains, winners and losers, success and failure. As children grow older and find they don't have the capacity or talent to meet these mythical standards they lose confidence and motivation. Little boys find they aren't sports heroes and little girls find they aren't beautiful pop stars. Then in school they are expected to work and perform at levels exceeding what adult professional are expected to achieve in the form of constant study and preparation for exams. Every child gets the message that the only options in the world are to be doctors and engineers. Parents reinforce this, pressuring their children to be little sports heroes and test takers who must excel and outperform their peers in the rat race. Parents need to be sensitive and observant to see their children's unique inclinations and talents and encourage the development of those and don't force their children to be cooky cutter performers. They should be encouraged, not with delusions of success and failure, but with enthusiasm in learning and developing from mistakes, being humble magnanimous with achievement along with being happy for the achievements or others. Children should be encouraged to use their imaginations, to play in nature, and discover. They shouldn't be forced into institutional environments at an age where they should still be close to their homes, parents and family members. They should never receive the message that decent, honest hard working people deserve contempt because they aren't doctors, engineers or some other narrow definition of success.
3. Of the biggest obstacles to the development of confidence in capacity to due is the rise screen addiction. Confidence in capacity to do is developed by successfully performing tasks and developing skills. This requires developing the ability to direct attention, to calmly practice and repeat things until they become second nature. It begins with every day things like tying shoes and getting dressed and then moves to motor coordination in activities and development of artistic skill. This also includes socialization skills in relating and communicating with others. I see over and over again, this epidemic of children of school age who won't speak more than a word or two, who won't make eye contact, who can't pay attention or sit still. However, they can keep their heads down on screen and play elaborate video games at hours on end. Their lives consist of playing video games and watching T.V. and going to school where they barely function. They don't have friends, they don't go outside to play, they don't have any interest or skill, they can't connect socially, thus they have no confidence in themselves. On top of this the games have rewired their brains to be at the speed of fighting and killing zombies or blowing up tanks on the battle field while their bodies remain disengaged and passive. They can't relate to the slower pace of peaceful every day life. Obviously, parents need to ban these activities in their homes. Children should be developing activities which develop mind body coordination and social skills. They should be enrolled in age and inclination appropriate activities such as, music, sports, dance, martial arts, other arts, crafts and skills.
4. The final obstacle which is the king of all others are the changes in parenting approaches over the last 50 years. Case and point; When I was a child, I was never asked what I wanted to eat. The food was put on the table and that was that. Now, over and over, I see parents who are ruled by their children's whims. They tell me their child won't eat anything but sweets and junk food. When I investigate, it almost always turns out that these parents have raised their children to believe they should have what ever makes them feel good for the moment. Parents begin by thinking it's cute to ask their children what they want, what they would like, how it should be, let them make the decisions as if they had the maturity and knowledge to know. When I ask why don't you do what is healthy and wholesome, they look at me with utter and complete anguish and defeat and express how they can't bear to hear their child cry or be sad because they didn't get what they wanted. Their children have been taught and have learned how to put their parents into this defeated state and give in to the whim. I see parents cave in merely on the declaration from the child that "you are a bad parent for not giving me X". This path begins with food, then to T.V. and video games, then to major parent appropriate decision and ends in lack of age appropriate development, lack of confidence or arrogance, and anti social behavior. Parents should only allow for what is wholesome in their house and ban what is unwholesome. Parents need to be crystal clear that little children are at a stage where immediate gratification and pleasure predominate and that parents must establish that keeping the big picture discipline and structure in place is their duty. It isn't parent's duty to make children like them by giving them what ever they want. Parents must understand that children need to know parents won't negotiate their whims for unwholesome indulgence and behavior. They need to know that their parents aren't pawning them off to unwholesome indulgence in junk food, T.V. and video games just so parents won't feel bothered. They need parents attention, guidance and encouragement to develop self esteem and confidence, like helping them with school assignments, playing motor skill games with them, teaching them good manners and social skills, pointing out the benefits of positive actions and the consequences of negative actions.
Once lack of confidence had become ingrained and carried to adult life, along with appropriate Homeopathic treatment, I guide patients to examine their own mind, belief systems and conclusions about themselves which perpetuate the cycle of unconfidence. I lead them to the awareness that those one size fits all conclusions aren't true and don't need to be agreed with any more. Through targeted affirmations and practices, patients can establish a positive sense of self and know they have the capacity to learn and do and also accept that we don't all have the same capabilities and that we can be ok with who we are anyway. The goal is to transcend delusion of success and failure so you can manifest your true authentic nature.
I know that some may be reading this and cringing because it is pointing out deep rooted habitual patterns many of us suffer from which are epidemic in this day and time. It needs to be bluntly stated because too many of us are living crippled handicapped lives due to stunted self confidence. Homeopathic treatment can be very helpful in miasmatic confidence issues, but for it to work at the deepest level the above mentioned obstacles need to be mitigated as much as is possible.

The founder of Homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann’s first aphorism: “the calling of the physician is to heal the sick”.
Note that no where in his definitive work “The Organon of Medical Art” does it say anything like;
“The purpose of the physician is to get rich, to pursue a grand lifestyle, to get respect and appreciation through professional achievement”.
These things can happen incidentally for the true physician who is successful in healing patients, but without the first aphorism being the core intention of the physician, vision to apprehending what is diseased and what is curable will be very limited. It is a sad fact that in todays world, the vast majority of physicians suffer from the affliction of careerism. Though this mostly afflicts allopathy, it has begun to spill over into Homeopathy as well.
Careerism is the state of mind where ego seeks security and self importance by conforming to the group think required by the protectionist monopolist mind set established in that career over generations of time. At the core of this group think are the interests of monetary and political power.
Often, the well intentioned student enters medical training and learns that conformity is required for success and that success is measured by grades, wealth, lifestyle and prestige, not truly benefiting patients. More often, students enter medical training with full intention of gaining wealth, prestige and respect in order to avoid feelings of failure and disgrace before parents and peers.
There isn’t any way this trend will be reversed any time soon in the sphere of Allopathy because it was founded in the self interest of it’s practitioners at expense of patients, so it is to the Homeopathic physician and patients of Homeopathy to whom I’m addressing here. It was by pure intention that Hahnemann apprehended the laws of nature in the cause and cure of disease. No one concerned with the self interest of career and security would ever have the vision to discover this. It is the very 1rst aphorism because Hahnemann understood that successful practice, as measured by cured patients, could only be achieved by minds who cultivated the same purity. To listen to the patients, in their own words, to observe without prejudice (self interest), with compassion (the understanding the God did not create us to suffer), to see that liberation from disease allows for service to the higher purpose of life (benefitting all).
In some places, Homeopathic schools are dropping the study of the philosophy and have replaced it with the self interest system of mechanistic rote learning competition career climbing. These schools are filling with people who want to be called “Doctor” and assure that they have secure incomes and community respect. As monied and political interest gain influence over the group think, conformity replaces the dynamic minds exemplified by our masters. Our great method is debased, discredited and destroyed by the malpractice of spending only 5 minutes with patients, relying solely of questionnaires, giving remedies based on pathology, meeting government mandates on allopathic scientific requirements, claiming Homeopathy and allopathy can be combined, or that Homeopathy is only applicable when allopathy failed. Doctors competing and clamoring for fame proliferate, taking practice further and further away from the unchanging principles laid out in the Organon.
Patients need to know the difference if they want to see real progress in their own healing. It’s not difficult to spot the signs and symptoms of a careerist vs. a healer. How much time does your practitioner spend with you? Can you see how he is connecting you physical ailment to mental thought patterns? Are you getting lasting results or just temporary relief? Does your practitioner come across as a humble person of depth and sensitivity or an omnipotent god like figure who wants your adoration and obedience? Does your practitioner succeed through successful cases, good reputation and referrals as to results, or does he survive through low balling his fees or the facade of state authority and subsidies? Does his practice or clinic use profit high volume driven business models, or does he seek to keep operating costs low to keep prices affordable to most?
All over the world Homeopathy needs to purge itself of careerism if Homeopathy is to grow as the true healing art and science it was meant to be. Practitioners need to reflect upon their own minds and motives, and do the self work required to purify their minds of the shallow selfish motives of careerism. If in honest reflection, the would be student or practitioner sees he can’t get past this, then another profession would be appropriate. I implore patients of Homeopathy to consider this information when selecting any practitioner to be your co-healer in helping you to make lasting and permanent changes so you can be free to serve the higher purposes of your existence.
For the benefit of all!
“Selfishness and ignorance make of life a vivid nightmare and of earth a seething hell. The wail of pain mingles with the laughter of the gay. Fits of joy are followed by spasms of distress. Man embraces and clings closer to the cause of his sorrows, even while held down by them. Disease, the emissary of death, strikes at his vitals. Then is heard the message of the soul. This message is of strength, of love, of peace. This is the message we would bring: The strength to free the mind from ignorance, prejudice, and deceit; the courage to seek the truth in every form; the love to bear each other’s burdens; the peace that comes to the freed mind, an opened heart, and consciousness through an undying life.” Harold W Percival.
Sooner or later all of us are going to deal with disease. When disease brings on suffering and limitation, most of us will seek to find a “cure” in order to be free of this suffering and limitation. The degree of cure is going to depend on the degree of awareness the sufferer gains in understanding the nature, cause, and proper cure for the disease. In my own healing journey and through my Homeopathic practice, I have identified 5 stages of awareness people go through in dealing with disease.
This stage of awareness is where most people commonly are when disease first appears. It basically says to itself that this is a purely externally conditioned event to which I am the victim. When I say external conditions, I mean things like blaming the accidental fate, germs, heredity, magic, or God. This state is also characterized by a magical belief that the path to cure is going to be an external thing like a doctor, drug, surgery, or beseeching God. The behavior is to be passively submissive to an external authority. The methods of treatment chosen are suppressive and violent, always in favor of short term relief in exchange for long term suffering.
This state is characterized by a recognition that the outcomes of these external and magical treatments don’t pan out and mostly seem to lead to even more complicated and severe suffering. At this state the suffer begins to question the beliefs, theories, methods, and business of treating the sick. The big question mark in the mind opens the door allowing the mind to begin investigate itself and the world as to the cause and cure of disease.
This stage of awareness begins when the suffer becomes aware that he has been deceived by imitation of cultural superstitions, and those who seek to profit on people’s suffering. It is seen that the theories and treatments are grounded in ignorance, or the desire for profit, position, power. The person let’s go of any hope or belief in these methods and authorities and realizes he must take full responsibility for finding the cause and cure of the suffering and moves into deep self reflection and research outside of the system offered by stage 1 awareness. The sufferer begins experimenting with various alternative theories and methods of treatment.
At this stage the sufferer begins to see that the nature of the suffering has to do with the the way the mind is thinking, how it has habitual automatic patterns which are bringing about changes in the body, creating susceptibilities, and is manifesting repeating circumstances which cause the suffering. He sees that the suffering is nature's reaction to his own imbalanced habitual mind patterns. The person sees that he needs to change this habitual momentum if he is to end the suffering. He realizes that any treatment/healing method must be in alignment with this awareness and choses only those methods which aid in helping to take responsibility for this habitual momentum in order to change it back toward balance and wholeness.
This is the stage of cure. The imbalanced habitual pattern which is the primary cause of the alterations in form and function of the body have been restored to balance. This has resulted in the vital force, atoms, molecules, tissues, and organs to go back to harmonious function. What is left is a great lesson in what not to think and do in accordance to natural and Universal law. This stage of awareness is also marked by a true desire to help other to see clearly and gain the means and skill needed to cure themselves of disease.
The reason I chose Homeopathy as my primary health care means is because the Principles of Homeopathic treatment are in alignment with natural and Universal law. The law of similar symptoms of the medicine curing the similar symptoms of the sufferer is the method of facing and bringing up to the surface, and then purging the unconscious habitual formation. The law of dynamization of the medicine is the law the the source of all manifestation in the material world is the motion of immaterial energy being influence by mind and intention. The law of single substance as the total nature of a disease is the law that all functions and forms in nature are projections, representations, and reflections of human thought patterns.

When I was undergoing my Homeopathic education, one of my teachers gave a series of lectures on the history of healthcare. He explained that in ancient times, many cultures viewed life from a vitalistic perspective in where they saw that the physical world was a manifestation of immaterial energies of life, prana or chi. Some of these cultures identified a direct link with this invisible life energy to the processes of the mind. When it came to the cause and cure of disease, they attempted to understand how the mind was disturbing the life energy which in turn disturbed the form and function of the body. The idea was that if the disturbance in the life could be corrected, the form and function of the body would heal by it’s own innate healing power.
As the ages passed and civilization moved from east to west and from Greece to the Romans, there was a shift in view. The people became more immeshed in materialism, perceiving the mere appearance of things. Coinciding with this shift was a ever increasing war like mentality which sought control over physical things with the expedient means of force without considering causes. As this view appeared in medicine and healthcare, the cause of disease was viewed as coming from material sources and that treatment must be of material source and must be expedient and forceful. The idea was that the body was all, the pathology the enemy, and that healing depended on the forceful means of the practitioner.
Clearly from the time of the Romans to the present, the materialistic view has been embraced whole heartedly to the point that greed, force and war now threaten the health and survival of all humanity and perhaps the planet itself. Because the consequences have been so horrific, there has been a shift back towards a Holistic Vitalistic view by many.
This brings me to the subject of pointing out the confusion which I encounter in my practice in which many people, seeking Holistic treatment don’t clearly understand the difference between the materialistic methods which are offered under the genre of Holistic, and the vitalistic view of Homeopathy. Many patients come to my clinic after having seen various “Holistic” practitioners with disease labels like, candida, name that vitamin deficiency, heavy metal toxicity, gluten intolerance, adrenal fatigue or allergy "to name your thing". There are many more I can’t remember off the top of my head, but they are telling the patient that sickness is caused by material things to which they are the helpless victim. The treatment offered is to set the patient into control or avoidance mode. The patient must control material things like the food, air, water, or live life in a bubble avoiding the world which is making them sick. The thing is that these material theories are most easily debunked by thinking them out and by clinical experience in applying the correct Homeopathic remedy which corrects the disturbed life. One interesting experience I often have is that as I’m uncovering the true nature of the disease in the life and mind, the patient often grasps even harder at these materialistic notions as if it gives a sense of control and a way to avoid seeing the real problem. It usually goes like this: Patient, tell me more about X. As the patient begins to put awareness of X, suddenly the patients says: “But it’s because of Candida, metal toxin, I ate wheat gluten, there was too much pollen, my adrenals, I didn’t take my vitamin”.
So, let me debunk for you these materialistic notions. Now mind you, there is such a thing as poisoning the body or malnutrition which causes symptoms and pathology, but this is not what we are talking about. We are talking about people who have symptoms and pathology going about their normal lives, exposed to the same things others who don’t have such symptoms of pathology.
If eating gluten caused disease, then everyone, throughout time, would have been sick just like you when they eat wheat gluten. What is causing your gluten intolerance? The difference is that you have an underlying susceptibility caused by a disturbance in your life force.
If heavy metals were making you sick, then, everyone else in your environment would be sick as well since they were exposed to the same things. The difference is that you have and underlying susceptibility in your life force.
If candida was making you sick, then, everyone in your environment would be sick as well. The difference is that you have an underlying susceptibility in your life force.
If adrenal fatigue was making your sick, then everyone else who is busy would have adrenal fatigue. What is causing your adrenal fatigue? The difference is that you have an underlying susceptibility in your life fore.
If not taking your supplement was making you sick, then everyone else not taking that supplement would be sick just like you. The difference is, you have an underlying susceptibility in your life force.
If pollens were making you sick, then, everyone else in your environment would be sick like you. The difference is that you have and underlying susceptibility in your life force.
Are you getting the picture?
Now, imagine if someone trained and talented in the vitalistic approach can have a nice long talk with you which makes clear the underlying disturbance in your life force as it is expressed through your symptoms, emotions, behaviors and words. Imagine if he can then apply the immaterial energy force of a substance from nature which will stimulate your life force to react in sympathy, to throw off and correct it’s life force disturbance, resulting in total healing on all levels, thus freeing you of symptoms, enabling you to engage the environment without having to resort to control and avoidance. Imagine how this can all be done without dangerous drugs poisoning your body, causing side effects and dependency. Imagine, that you can heal and not be dependent on treatment your entire life. Imagine you now have clear insight into how you can take responsibility for your own life force and not be a victim of things. If you can imagine this, you can grasp vitalism and Homeopathy.
