Understanding Classical Homeopathy
Classical Homeopathy or “Hahnemannian homeopathy” refers to the original principles of Homeopathic medical system in which a single remedy (constitutional remedy) is chosen according to the person as a whole (a person’s “constitution” – summary of physical symptoms, emotional symptoms, temperament and mental state) that
Homeopathic constitutional care can elicit a profound healing response and can be extremely effective in treating chronic health problems that had seemed incurable. It can also help activate our essential center of pure potential to our unique purpose as well as help us to function more from our true essence.
The state of restoring balance is the goal that homeopathic treatment is working toward. Homeopathy is capable of healing many chronic and acute conditions. It is a medicine that is both life enhancing and revitalizing, bringing harmony to stressed bodies and restoring health in chronically ill individuals in a gentle, natural and permanent way.
Treating the Whole Person
Classical Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine based on the philosophy that our body, mind and emotions are all interconnected. Based on this perspective, one of the primary objectives of a classical homeopath is to find the particular constitutional remedy that matches each patient's physical, emotional and mental symptoms and features. The constitutional remedy is selected based on the law of similars, taking into consideration the person as a whole, including past and present symptoms.
The Law of Similars
The Law of Similars is the principle that like shall be cured by like, or Similia similibus curentur. This principle recognized by physicians and philosophers since ancient times states that we must match symptom picture of an illness or injury to the symptom picture of the medicine. Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, found that if a minute quantity of the substance that produces symptoms of illness in a healthy person, is administered to an ill person; it cures the disease in the ill person. A simple example of this principle can be seen with the common onion. Slicing an onion can cause symptoms of burning and watery eyes, as well as sneezing and a runny nose. Many hay fever sufferers with symptoms of burning watery eyes, sneezing and runny nose have found dramatic relief after taking homeopathic remedy Allium cepa (the remedy made from red onion). Thus the substance that can cause symptoms can, as a homeopathic remedy, also cure them. However, the homeopathic remedies are given in minute doses to avoid unwanted side-effects, making them safe to use even during pregnancy or when treating babies.
Now, let’s take a closer look at what causes disease and how homeopaths find the right remedy for their patients.
The Importance of Balance
The key to overcoming any disease is balance. In order to know how to restore the balance in your particular Mind-Body system, you need to know more about your own unique (individual) nature. Classical homeopathy can help you to discover your Mind-Body type, your constitutional type.
The body is the instrument through which we can achieve the ultimate goal of our existence so it is vital that we take care of ourselves and maintain good health. There is a vital force (chi) - energy, which sustains our bodies. And homeopaths believe that good health derives from equilibrium between the mind, emotions and body, which is maintained by this vital force, which regulates the body’s self-healing capabilities. The natural state of the body is balance and the vital force maintains this balance.
When there is balance, there is no struggle and we don’t have any symptoms. We feel at ease. However, when our body is not in this natural state of balance, the vital force struggles to return our body to equilibrium. It is when the vital force is struggling, that our body experiences symptoms—it’s the body's way of communicating that there is something wrong and we need to pay attention.
In order to know how to restore the balance in any particular Mind-Body system, it is important to understand the patient’s constitutional type.
In terms of Classical Homeopathy, the constitution is the total expression of a person's characteristics. For example:
We all experience different levels of energy, are susceptible to
different kinds of diseases, or are affected differently by
stress—each of our constitutions have different patterns of energy,
emotional experiences, mind-body characteristics and different
chemical or hormonal imbalances. Therefore, uncovering the
characteristics of our unique constitution is the starting point to
knowing what we must do to achieve balance and preserve health.
Learning about the constitution is also integral to learning how to reawaken our body’s self-healing capacity.
The Medical Intuitive Health Evaluation
Jana is also known for her Intuitive abilities. She has been helping people to assess their health on an energy level.
Usually the location of disease or symptoms within the body—where it occurs—has psychological and emotional meaning and significance. The mind and body are intimately linked via the immune, endocrine and central nervous systems. An energy assessment can be a very helpful way to provide insight into what kind of energy changes are related to the symptoms or illness that patients may be struggling with.
The Intuition Health Evaluation assesses the body for energy blocks, subconscious patterns, and emotional blocks. During the evaluation, Jana helps her patients understand the physiological, emotional and psychological interconnectedness that lies at the root of their symptoms, pain or imbalance.
