"Healing with the clean, pure, beautiful agents of nature is surely the one method of all which appeals to most of us."
- Dr. Edward Bach, 1936
What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a safe, effective system of natural medicine helping one to achieve wellness. It has been used worldwide for more than 200 years.
How does Homeopathy Differ from Conventional Medicine?
Homeopathy is based on the principle that "like cures like." This means, if a substance can cause symptoms of disease in a healthy person, then it can help a sick person suffering from similar symptoms. Homeopathy regards symptoms as the body's healthy attempt to restore itself to balance. A homeopath will choose a remedy that supports the symptoms rather than opposing or suppressing them, as in conventional medicine.
Homeopathy recognizes that each person manifests illness in a unique and slightly different way, which is why two people with the same illness will not necessarily receive the same homeopathic remedy. Unlike the "one size fits all" approach often used in conventional medicine, a homeopath chooses a remedy that matches a person's unique symptom profile which includes physical, mental and emotional symptoms.
For example, a cold sufferer with a stopped-up nose and dry eyes may receive a different remedy than a cold sufferer with a runny nose and watering eyes.
The chosen Remedy is intended to displace the original condition, after which the body releases both the condition and the Remedy, bringing the individual back to a state of harmony and well-being. While not a form of Herbalism, Homeopathy uses Remedies prepared from well-diluted stock solutions akin to herbal tinctures.
What is the History of Homeopathy?
The roots of Homeopathy stretch back to Hippocrates and Paracelsus. In the Early 1800’s, Samuel Hahnemann developed the system of Homeopathy in use today, based on early traditions and outlined in his body of work called The Organon.
The concept of “Like Cures Like” (similis similibus curentur) was his reaction to the often harsh, antidote style of medicine being practiced during his time.
What are Bach Flower Essences?
Bach Flower Essences are a form of homeopathic remedies. They were developed by Dr. Edward Bach in the UK during the 1930's as the result of his research to provide effective, readily available remedies which promote the body's natural healing abilities.
Dr. Bach's healing strategy could be summed up as:
"Don't fight it, transform it!"
Dr. Bach, through his research by using on himself the essences of flowers found on or near his property which is now the Bach Centre, discovered 38 flowers which cover 38 negative states of mind from which we may all suffer.
These 38 remedies comprise a complete system and each plant was specifically chosen for its ability to treat the mind. Even though modern society challenges us with the pressures of a demanding pace and changing environment, human nature does not change no matter what era we live in. The Bach Flower Essences move along with the people themselves, not the times they live in.
If you have the time, there is a great 3-part series of videos which will give you a good background on Dr. Edward Bach and his system of Flower Remedies. You can access the videos by clicking here.
What is Reiki?
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "Universal Wisdom" or "Spiritual Wisdom" and Ki which is "Life force energy".
Reiki Energy is administered by the "laying on of hands". Reiki Energy Healing is a system which assists the body's natural healing ability promoting Harmony between the Mind, Body and Spirit.
A Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. It treats the body, emotions, mind and spirit bringing about many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Reiki may help you to cope with Pain Management, deal effectively with Crisis and Stress and improve your Over-all Vitality.
What is Tuning Fork Therapy®?
Tuning Fork Therapy uses the sound vibrations of tuning forks to clear blockages that may be impeding the body's natural flow of energy. The forks work in a manner similar to acupuncture but without the use of needles, they are non-intrusive, there is no touching, no needles, or manipulation involved. As the sounds flow through your body, the cells pulsate, resonate and interact with the sound vibrations, awakening the life energy of the cells and returning you to a state of health and harmony.
