Like Cures Like: Homeopathy
In a week of rapid revelations and change, we are going strong to keep bringing more holistic preventative tools to empower you and get through this time of COVID-19. Today we share and perhaps, introduce you to homeopathy and ideas of how “like cures like”.
Do you believe your body can heal itself? If you answered, “Yes!” then homeopathy may be something you want to look more into. Homeopathy is a medical system and based on the belief that the body can cure itself. Plants and mineral substance are diluted and succussed to stimulate the healing process. The principle in homeopathy is founded on the premise that illness can be treated with something that produces similar symptoms of the illness in small amounts.
We recommend that you research homeopathy, consult with a homeopathic doctor, and your healthcare physician (whom may need more information) before administering dosages yourself. For many alternative medicine folks out there, homeopathic remedies and their dosages easily replace more traditional “medicine cabinets” that are filled with Tylenol, Advil, Midol, aspirin, Vicks rubs, antiseptics, Tums, etc. You get the idea.
For purposes of our promise to bring you “A Week of Well-Being: Holistic Prevention for COVID-19”, we will cut to the chase and share some of the more common homeopathic remedies that would be effective for what appears to be COVID-19 like symptoms. Keep in mind, that these remedies have multi-uses and when working with a homeopathist, they will work directly with You to customize which remedy and how much of a dosage to take.
Byronia Alba – used for preventing infections and aiding lung diseases
Gelsemium – aides breathing problems
Eupatorium – flu-like symptoms
Many homeopathists and laboratories will combine plants to create a special blend, tincture, drops, pellets, etc. as one remedy. The remedies named here are only a small sampling. There’s just about as many remedies as there are plants or at least the ones with known uses to date. You can begin your learning, exploration, even training in homeopathics to empower yourself, and your ability to heal.
Until tomorrow, when we will take on the Big “F” , no, not that one…
Stay safe. Be Well.
