Effects of Homeopathy | Homeopathic Health (5 of 7)

Part 5 in a 7-part series

 

What is the desired effect of the homeopathic remedy?

To get rid of (for instance) a headache, or to have one come on, or as a preventative?

 
Any of these is a possibility, and any of these could ultimately be curative.
 
You see, even triggering a headache to come on would actually be the first step of getting rid of that headache, as it would represent your subconscious's successful isolation and repair of the underlying reason for the headache. 
 
Consequently, this could be seen as ultimately the best preventative of all! 
 
Mind you, triggering a headache, which could be seen as a specific type of aggravation (see the more detailed discussion about these in the first post in this Homeopathic Health series for details), isn't a necessary or even somewhat common occurrence in my experience - most patients just start getting better, which is always nice :)
   
As well, I should emphasize that any of the above only applies to homeopathic single remedies which have been individually chosen for you by a skilled practitioner


In my humble opinion, combination homeopathic remedies are - with a few well-crafted exceptions - attempts to turn homeopathy into conventional medicine, allowing practitioners and lay people alike to prescribe symptomatically.

For example, the leading Flu remedy consists of every homeopathic thrown together which has something remotely to do with flu, while the Colic remedy likewise consists of every remedy which has something to do with colic.

This is, unfortunately, the type of homeopathic that this most commonly available to the general public, and with which the person with no previous exposure to homeopathy is most likely to be familiar. 

However, because the homeopathic provides information (rather than the raw material that herbs or food provide), I have noticed that using too many messages will often confuse the body, causing destructive interference and ultimately creating less beneficial effect (if any at all) than any of the individual remedies.

That said, I have noticed that there are a very few select people for whom combinations of remedies are preferable to any single remedy - however, in these instances, this combination is also individually selected after careful evaluation and testing, rather than being applied on the basis of a symptomatic disease label.    

Homeopathic single remedies, in my experience, have much greater potential to produce truly curative results, but they must in turn be very finely individualized by a skilled practitioner. 

I have over 1,000 single remedies in my ever-expanding medicine kit, and no one remedy is more or less likely a prescription in a given case than any other.

As my level of specificity has increased in this manner, the results which treatment has been able to produce have become more and more consistently gratifying.  

Note I have, over the course of my own homeopathic treatment by a fellow homeopath (for whom I prescribe in turn), I have realized that I cannot act as my own 'skilled practitioner' and self-prescribe! 

I reflected upon this fact after receiving a particularly good remedy which I knew and could recognize easily on others, but yet never recognized myself to be! 

Why was this, I mused? 

It suddenly hit me that it was almost impossible to not have this be the case! 

After all, the remedy is needed in the first place because we have a "blind spot" - something which we are completely oblivious to on a conscious or subconscious level, despite it being in plain sight. 

Since we cannot see our own blind spot, we cannot prescribe for ourselves.

This is why true healing (in my humble opinion) is better achieved by our collective consciousness than by solitary meditation and self reflection. 

We can spend a lifetime going around in circles inside our own heads, while the answer may be staring us in the face the whole time. 

I cannot count the number of times in my own life in which using another person as a sounding board has greatly enhanced my own clarity and insight into a situation that I could not have possibly tackled alone.

Naturopathic Medicine & Homeopathy Testimonials

Multiple car accidents caused me to have less mobility and huge pain and stiffness in my neck, face and jaw.

I'd get super dizzy every couple of days, and have to go throw up.

My lymph nodes were always swollen too, and I got throat infections much more often.

I felt so tightly wound at work and in my marriage too.

The homeopathy, bowen therapy and neuroemotional releases all made my neck relax, and the pain started to go away too.

I've been pain-free for months, and have finally been able to drive without fear again.

Amanda R, Maple Ridge / Pitt Meadows, BC

Before coming to see you, if I ate anything but raw food, I'd feel like my abdomen was so bloated, painful and swollen.

I would get tired and fuzzy in the head from eating almost anything!

Another naturopath diagnosed me with leaky gut, but the supplements she prescribed didn't really help that much.

Your homeopathic remedy and Bowen therapy made a huge difference though.

And I was happy to not have to take so many vitamins!

The mental-emotional technique also made me aware of the past events that had probably contributed to my health problems.

I also appreciated that you could tell me what foods were good for my body, and which foods I was allergic to.

Although, as you told me would happen, it seems these allergies have become less with time, I can now eat almost anything without having any gas, pain, confusion or tiredness.

Bernadette, Vancouver (West Point Grey), BC

I want to take the time to say how much I appreciate your excellent work in improving my health.

There was something unsettled in my gastrointestinal system that my family doctor wasn't able to fix and I was suffering daily.

In less then 6 months of being in your care I was feeling better than ever.

Not only were my specific problems taken care of but I've also noticed that my overall physical and mental health are greatly improved.

I recommend your services to any of my friends, family or co-workers who have health complaints.

Colin Aspinall, Port Coquitlam, BC

Distance had been created between myself and my wife - in our sex life and our marriage in general - when I came to see Dr. Somody. The naturopathic counselling and homeopathic remedy quickly helped me to overcome my ejaculatory control issues. and my marriage and sex life are doing good now.

Brian C., Port Coquitlam, BC

I don't know how but your homeopathic technique and neuroemotional work brought colour to my life again.

The voices stared going away after the first session and I don't feel so numb, dead or ambivalent all the time now.

I'm also not so worried or paranoid and can actually relax and be comfortable around people.

I don't feel so irritable or anxious all the time and I'm even not so clumsy or accident prone now.

B.W., Victoria (Saanich), BC

The trembling and shaking is not noticeable anymore, and the muscle weakness and tension is getting less.
It seems like it's gotten better every time I've seen you, so I have hope for it soon going away absolutely!
My eye sight is also stronger through the treatment, and I am not so forgetful or confused now.

Elle C., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

The homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional technique cured my blisters, warts, and pustules, and I haven't had any flare-ups or outbreaks for over a year.

Andy's Bowen therapy helped my knee and hip pain a lot as well.

J.W., Delta (Ladner), BC

I had this bump on my nose that I got burnt off multiple times with dry ice.

But it kept coming back, and eventually became worse and worse, until it was diagnosed as skin cancer.

Then I saw Andy, and his homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional technique helped kill the cancer and let my skin heal.

I don't get the bump any more, and you can barely tell that I ever had anything there!

B.K., Surrey (Cloverdale / South Surrey), BC

For most of my life, I felt as though I couldn't breathe - there was so much mucus and congestion in my lungs and nose.

I was sick a lot too, in my lungs and nose, plus infections in my bladder. 

But I would also get this same congested feeling when I would get panic attacks.

Andy's homeopathic remedy, bowen treatment, and neuroemotional exercises let me get to the source of my sickness and cure it.

Now I only rarely get sick or panicky.

And I always seem to get over it pretty quickly when it does come.

The change in my mood is like night and day too.

Carol K., Burnaby, BC

The homeopathic remedy helped make his seizures much gentler and more infrequent.

The muscle tension and weakness have also got quite a bit better with Andy's Bowen therapy treatments.

Jacob, Squamish (Garibaldi Highlands), BC
