HOMEOPATHY
 

Homeopathic remedies are made from the elements found in nature --mineral, animal, and plant extracts are the base of these natural remedies which are then diluted through altering and successive degrees of concentration to make different potencies. Paradoxically, the more a homeopathic remedy is diluted the more potent the remedies become. This is because water is a potent repository of soft electrons. You have two materials in a homeopathic remedy: solvent (water and alcohol) and dopant, an impurity added intentionally in a very small, controlled amount to change its soft electrical properties.

Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeoopathy, was a German physician who earned his Doctor of Medicine degree in 1779. At the time of his graduation, secular scientific advances were beginning to be seen in the fields of chemistry, physics, physiology and anatomy. The clinical practice of medicine, however, was rife with superstition and lack of scientific rigor. The treatments of the day, such as purgatives, bleeding, blistering plasters, and emetics lacked a rational basis and were often more harmful than effective. Hahnemann recognized this and wrote critically of current practices in several papers on topics such as Arsenic poisoning, hygiene, dietetics and psychiatric treatment. Hahnemann reasoned that doses of these substances that produced overt symptoms would be inappropriate for treatment of diseases with the same symptoms. Thus he advocated reduction of the dose to infinitesimal levels by multiple serial dilutions of ten or hundred fold .

Hahnemann always insisted, and did his followers like Hering and Kent, on searching for the key mental symptoms with regard to the classical prescription. Doctor and Pastor J.P. Gallavardin lead his life as an apostle of Homeopathy. A fervent student of Galen and Hippocrates, he considered the unity of the body and soul the core of Christian living. Preferring not to practice like the "common doctors," but scientifically by the law of similia similibus curantur. "Homeopathy will become a powerful agent of civilisation, moral and intellectual, because it will contribute:

1. To the development of intellectual apittudes, of which the Creator has put the seeds in us.

2. To the amelioration of characters which would bring a greater peace between the inviduals, in the families and in nations; to the development of morality and as a consequence the diminuition of criminality.

What a great preponderance will acquire thus, amongst the civilised peoples, Homeopathy, if it is utilised in this way and this because it is only by the help of this therapeutic one may obtain numerous good results to its infinitesimal doses."

We can have no better method of study of the therapeutic drug pictures of classical homeopathy than by the work of Dr. Gallavardin.

Dr. Gallavardin, a student of Hahnemann felt certain that "remedies cannot act isolatedly either on the body or the soul but to be sure on the man as a whole, the living compound of a body and soul."

He states: "Now I am going to indicate two habitual remedies which are useful against anger and the irresistable desire to strike and kill, these two remedies are Nux vomicaand Hepar. Nux and Hepar are not, to be sure, the only remedies suitable to anger. But they are sufficient to cure this defect of character, if not in all persons at least in most cases... It is difficult to believe, until having experimented, the good relations in how many families can be reestablished by the help of these two medicines or others more appropiate for each subject."

"It is preferable to use these remedies without the knowledge of the patient. The change in character and intelligence will be spontaneous, so that the patient may not hamper the effect wishing either to counteract of helping it awkwardly or being very much over-occupied. When they are cured they should not be told that they have taken treatment without knowing it, if not the preoccupation of the mind might cause a relapse of their defects, or they may become so disbelieving that it would be difficult to treat them again during a relapse... In order to treat them without their knowledge, dissolve the drops in one-third glass of water which should be stirred for 5 to 6 minutes with a small spoon and take on the condition that the person in question does not drink or eat anything for at least half an hour after the administration of the water.

According to Dr. Gallavardin: One can by the help of homeopathy, remedy the defective psychic development quantitatively or qualitatively as much as or rather more than the defects of different organs and the muscular system of the human body by the help of exercise, by appropriate food and by light and air. One will see that each remedy checks or develops, in a different way, the development of moral dispositions or intellectual dispositions of man and woman. By using each remedy according to the law of similars you can modify the defective disposition of character and intelligence according to the aims to arrive at a better person. The remedy does not create mental or intellectual disposition, but develops it when it exists in a latent stage in the subject to be treated. A doctor here fulfills the role of a gardener who by nuturing and watering the ground, makes to germinate the seeds if they are there.

After twenty-two years of experience and practice, Dr. Gallavardin found 15 common homeopathic remedies that when taken sequentially, one remedy every two months, would ameliorate somatic and psychic conditions of each individual. Each remedy is to be taken in a short daily dose, every two months, in a specific order. Over the course of 30 months the action of the remedies manifest. Therefore, the head of the household or the minister should keep to themselves the use of the administration.

POULTICE: For Animals. The usual substances employed for this purpose comprise bran, linseed meal, yeast, antiphlogistine, mustard, mustard and linseed, bread, etc.
Poultices assist in reducing inflammation and relieving pain. Poulticing the feet of horses has been customary for centuries, particularly in the case of bruises and "picked-up nail." In these circumstances hot bran or brau and linseed are as a rule, employed. The bran is mixed with boiling water until it is fairly moist, and is then put into a poultice bag of sufficient length to come withiu a few inches of knee or hock, as the case may require. It is then tied on to keep it in position. Either hot or cold poultices are used in fever of the feet affecting horses, or more rarely catt.le. Modern veterinary surgeons, however, favour hot fomentations for the feet in preference to poultices, as being cleaner and better.
When a part is suppurating and unhealthylooking the addition of powdered charcoal to the bran or linseed is useful and beneficial, For affections of the chest in the horse, a plaster of mustard and linseed is applied to the chest wall and covered with brown paper. This should be washed off after 20 minutes. Such diseases as pneumonia, plcurisy, etc., in the dog are best treated with hot linseed and mustard poultices contained in a bag made of stout linen. They should be applied to both sides of the chest, and renewed ecery quarter of an hour. These poultices contain one part of mustard to two parts of meal.
