I love homeopathy, my work helping people and homeopathic remedies! I can only practice in the way that I do because I trust the remedies and prescribe them confidently- that is me, homeopathy with Cristina Villacorta!
Homeopathy dosage is something that many find confusing as there are many ways of prescribing and so many different methodologies.
I feel very confident in my work because I have a bag full of tools that serve my patients. I trust my approach, and I am confident in my prescriptions.
I know what homeopathy can do!
That is why I wanted to talk about something that is really bothering me.
The myths in homeopathy!
You will hear it over and over again –
homoeopathy is about USING THE RIGHT REMEDY- choosing ONE SINGLE REMEDY to clear the symptoms.
Well, let me tell you that as a practitioner, I would not have a single patient if this was the case!
Learn to dispel the myths you have been taught in homeopathy and confidently prescribe more than one remedy! Myths cover a whole Unit in my course; that is, how important this is if you want to succeed in your prescriptions, and I cover it from logic and homeopathic history over time.
In homeopathy, we have over 3000 remedies alone! Choosing between those remedies is difficult to find the perfect one with a one-hour consultation!
Or if you are self-prescribing in a severe acute where pain or distress has overtaken your senses!
Realistically, do you really think this is possible?
I have a secret to share with you; there is no such thing! And I can tell you that because I have been trained in classical homeopathy and am also a flexible homeopath. I can do both practical and classical. Therefore, I can judge which one works best and when to use one or the other or a combination of both.
I speak by experience, not by dogma.
HOMEOPATHY AND THE BEAUTY OF DIFFERENT METHODOLOGIES IN PRACTICE. A PRACTICAL CASE.
Let me tell you what has happened recently. I had a tooth extraction, the second one during the last year 🙁 and both with infection at the base.
After my first extraction, I went home and took some Arnica200, Arsenicum+Hypericum 200 and Ruta 200, and that was it! No painkillers or antibiotics were needed. Only that.
My second extraction was a bit more challenging in terms of remedies.
I started with the same remedies, and it really helped, but something was missing. I still had painful, sore and swollen gums in two small areas. The other remedies just weren’t helping! Until I realised that this was where they had put the anaesthetic injection, and I took Ledum 200 for a few doses.
Let me tell you what a relief it was! I slept all night without waking up.
In the morning, I woke up really well with no pain, even I was surprised! But this did not last long. As I became active in my house, I could feel the pain increasing, and Arsenicum+Hypericum 200 was not making any difference. The pain was increasing. It was very painful, and I thought maybe I should take a painkiller; this would be a reasonable time to do so.
But let me tell you that I do not have a single painkiller in my house! And I was by myself at home that day.
Can you imagine?
Time went by, and I started to feel a buildup. I felt it was “unbearable” and that I needed to take anything for the pain.
Do you recognise something here? This is my friend Chamomilla 200- ” feels as if they can not bear the pain”. So I headed to my remedies and took a few doses every 1/2 hour until manageable. What a relief! And now I felt again in control of the pain.
At that point, I understood that this time, for some reason, what was happening on the second day it was due to inflammation of the area; the pain this time was not coming from the bone or the nerve. So I used Bell200 as often as needed and Chamomilla 200 for the pain until the inflammation was down, and THAT WAS IT!
I was on those remedies for the second and third days. I moved to calendula 30 three times per day to help to heal the wound, and that was all. If you would like to read more about the remedies I have used for this problem, you can do so by reading my blog on dental problems.
So do you think that ONE REMEDY would have covered all that?
How about waiting instead of repeating every 3 hours to avoid infection? Would that have been wise?
In this case, all remedies and fast repetition were needed, and I would not have been able to manage without any of them!
Had I been scared to repeat, change or alternate remedies, I would have probably not managed to stay away from pain or infection, and I would have ended up with painkillers and antibiotics. FOR SURE.
Being flexible and confident in the remedies and not being fearful of repetition made the difference between having to use painkillers and antibiotics or not.
This is only a small example of how important it is to be flexible and how some of the circulating myths are not helpful in practice.
Those myths are used as dogmas and blind faith in the practitioner, but they do not represent the true nature of homeopathy.
Let me finish this, hoping that I have shown you that certain myths in homeopathy do not hold a place in practice.
I hope I have shown you the true power of our remedies, I want you to be empowered to use homeopathy without fear and self-prescribe for acute conditions.
