YouTube Homeopathy Video Blog 2


LINK: 10 minutes

Japanese doctor photographing water reference...

Vidal is talking about Dr Emoto and some information is found here...

How homeopathic remedies work is still up for debate. Emoto's work leaves a lot to be desired and I will let it go at that.

Vidal talks about there being more and more proof that homeopathy works...

The bottom line is... Yes we do need proof and Hahnemann said several times that to prove Homeopathy, APPLY IT CORRECTLY; that people need only test it on themselves.

Good discussion of making remedies (not exactly accurate but close enough for argument's sake).

You can treat acute illness fairly easily, but chronic illness is too complex to treat yourself. Just because acute illness many times is part of chronic does not mean that treating it is not beneficial. In treating acute disease you will better understand what is needed in chronic treatment and will be able to better help a homeopath that may treat your chronic illness.

It is also very hard to find a competent homeopath in some areas of the USA. In that event, learning as much as possible before venturing into homeopathy is necessary. I am of the mind that better to treat yourself than not get treatment at all.

It is also important to understand homeopathy to some extent to be able to evaluate a homeopath that you are considering for treating your illness.

The interviewer says,
"Stick to it (homeopathic treatment)! "
Homeopathy takes some patience to completely realize its gain.

In the long run of homeopathic chronic treatment, Vidal is correct that homeopathy is MUCH less expensive than allopathic medicine; even without insurance coverage.

Vidal finishes by touching on aggravations. She doesn't make the point of how well homeopathy works and gets a bit tongue-tied. The reality is that with competent care, the patient should realize some tangible gains almost immediately and within a reasonable interval will experience greater curative gains than with almost any other treatment. This goes for acute as well as chronic treatment.

Aggravations or a worsening of symptoms experienced by the patient is not uncommon. Because the point of homeopathy is to apply a similar disease to the ill patient, the patient is more susceptible to the “illness” created by the remedy. This should be obvious as the patient is already experiencing the illness (set of symptoms). Applying a strong remedy will generate an aggravation because the patient is more susceptible to the symptoms created by the remedy. Hahnemann late in his life advised against generating aggravations in the patient and he did this by formulating the idea of the “minimal dose”. See the post on this subject.

On to Video 3 next time...


  1. Dr. Emoto's work is trippy! Thanks for the compliments, I too believe in homeopathy.

  2. Thank you so much for your blog. I have tried homeopathy in the past but went to a doctor that gave me the remedies along with a dozen
    other herbal supplements. It never seemed to do any good. Now I see that he didn't really do it right as far as the way you describe
    it. Where can I learn how to do this for myself?

  3. Jillhummer,

    Thanks for the comment.

    What you have found in the homeopath that you visited is pretty common. Instead of relying completely on the homeopathic system, these practitioners hedge their bets and/or recommend additional herbal remedies. This is completely contrary to what Hahnemann said and he specifically named this type of practice un-homeopathic. I have also seen some practitioners (also seen on TV products) that advise use of multiple homeopathic remedies simultaneously (also a big no-no, for reasons cited elsewhere in this blog). The reason that this is more common than not is that it does take some effort to find the one remedy (Simillimum) that matches the patient; effort that is not really rewarded or realized by the patient.

    I commend your search for instruction in homeopathy. I have taken several courses offered locally, in books, and over the internet. After many years of frustration with this information and the push from some local associates, I have put together a basic course (so far). It's available to anyone (no matter their knowledge) and should be ready to go over the next few weeks if you can wait. You can find information for it on the website (

    Other than the above, I can’t say that there is any one book that covers very much of homeopathy. The original book by Hahnemann (Organon) can be a good resource (warning! It is very dry reading), is a great website full of excellent books, and is a good resource (read, FREE) that has many old homeopathic texts (scanned).

    I would also strongly suggest that you start with ACUTE illness ONLY. The more lengthy illness (CHRONIC) is too difficult to understand without a background in acute.

    Thanks again for your post and good luck in the study of this subject. Please feel free to ask any general questions about homeopathy as you come across.

  4. Wow this should be a great option to promote homeopathy ...
