Homeopathic & Allopathic In The Same House
Do you feel that you need to take mega-supplements and maintain a strict diet and routine or else your chronic recurring problems will flare up? Symptoms are signs our body gives us when our governing system, Chi, is stressed out or out of balance. A person with a strong, balanced Chi can handle an occasional dietary indiscretion, stress, exposure to some germs, toxins or allergens without getting ill. We are each born with an energetic blueprint that is individual to us and which contains weaknesses and strengths. So how can we turn our weaknesses into strengths?
Homeopathy is a natural system of healing that works by using a small dose of a substance to help stimulate the body's healing process. Homeopathy is an effective, safe, and gentle treatment for all ages. It is based on the principle of the "law of similars." A homeopathic remedy is made of a natural substance, that if given in full strength, would create the same symptom(s) you are trying to eliminate. The substance is, however, diluted down to its energetic form. Similar principals form the basis of conventional allergy treatment, where the allergic substance is given in a small dose, and in vaccines where an impotent form of the virus is given to bolster the immune system against that particular virus. Western medicine, or Allopathic medicine as it is called, has achieved significant leaps in preserving both the quality and longevity of life. It is important to acknowledge and recognize their contribution to health and wellness. To compare Homeopathic and Allopathic Medicine picture a house complete with windows, doors, a roof, plumbing and a good solid foundation. Then imagine there is an earthquake where that house is standing. The house shifts on its foundation, the windows break, the plumbing ruptures, and the ceiling begins to collapse. You, the owner would then engage a plumber to fix the pipes, a carpenter to mend the doors and replace the windows and a roofer to correct the damaged roof. But it is the foundation that needs dealt with correctly to stabilize the entire house and fortify it from future earthquakes. Western or Allopathic Medicine is like the plumber, the roofer and the carpenter. They look at the individual parts as seen from lab tests results which deal with the cellular level of the body and try to make the individual parts work. Homeopathy looks the energetic level of the body, which is the foundation and seeks to find a long-term solutions to the imbalances and concerns. So even if the new windows, roof and doors look great and function properly the foundation issues must be addressed for long term resolutions to the existing problems. Both medicines can co-exist comfortably in the same house/body. There are times, especially in acute situations, where the best fix is a prescription until the foundation can be remedied. The coexisting of these two medicines is known as Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM). CAM is what we practice here at Natural Horizons Wellness Center to help you turn your weakness into a strong and healthy foundation.
