In the northern hemisphere we aer coming into the heart of spring-- preparing very soon for summer. Where I live, the greens are really manifesting themselves. The flowers are blooming so beautifully. Mornings are still just a bit cooler. We've even got several plants growing in our "spring" garden-- including strawberries, tomatoes, and peppers. We've got spearmint and oregano returning from last year.
It's wonderful to see life beginning once again, as it does every year! Change, the only constant in life, should always be received with gladness.
A philosophy of which we should ever remind ourselves-- beauty in everything around us.
I am pleased and honored to be invited to speak at the 2015 LDS Holistic Living Conference in South Jordan, Utah in June. I will be speaking about the vaccine alternative, Homeoprophylaxis-- which I've shared information with you regarding already in these newsletters. I will also be teaching an introduction to Homeopathy course-- something I am sharing now with the many of you receiving this newsletter. It is such a wonderful thing to know of the growing number of people just like you who are wanting a holistic whole health approach and are now now once again learning about the time-honored gentle healting power of Homeopathy-- and, therewith, will be seeing how much of a blessing all of this will be to you and your whole family. There will be many speakers and presenters talking about many other holistic approaches to health as well. If you are in the Salt Lake area or are planning to go somewhere fun this summer, please consider attending this event! And if you are able to come to this event, I will love to meet you!
So, little by little I am getting more put up on my website. Thank you for your patience here! And please, as always let me know if you have any ideas, questions, or suggestions!
And let us get in a bit more about Homeopathy in this newsletter. Here is a question many people have-- and it still is not easy to explain, as we in the homeopathic community are still working on finding it out!
How does Homeopathy work?
Homoeopathy is a centuries' old healing method that is not documentable by standard allopathic medical testing. But careful, meticulous studies have been taking place world-wide since the inception of homoeopathy that are proving again and again how well and how safely and effectively it works.
Homeopathy is a method of healing, helping the body do what it naturally desires to do-- heal itself. Working at the energetic, or quantum level, on the physical, emotional, and mental levels, the homoeopathic approach offers a whole, complete method of healing. Practitioners of other whole health modalities, such as naturopaths and herbalists, often receive some training in homeopathy, which gives them some basic understanding of how it works and allows them to use it to some extent in their practises. It literally takes years of concentrated and focused study for full homeopathic practitioners to gain a full understanding of how to work with this healing modality. And even then, the trained homeopath will recognize that the study of homeopathy will easily last the entire rest of his or her life.
Trying to "prove" homeopathy works using allopathic methods-- or methods used by the form of medicine in common practise today-- is not going to work. It is much the same as trying to make a stew following a recipe for a chocolate cake. Following each recipe for its desired intent will, indeed, work. But differnet principles need to be adhered to for each modality.
This being said, because of the well-documented success of homeopathy in the treatment of infants and even animals as well as healing many conditions that had been termed "incurable", a rising number of even medical doctors are becoming more interested in studying this further.
How homeopathy actually actually "works" is difficult to explain, because it is not fully understood. But, again, considering countless case studies testifying to its ability to allow healing, will show the earnest seeker that it, indeed, works.
Have a wonderful month, then! And again, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me!
