Many natural medicine approaches depend on balancing the body’s vibrational frequency by giving healing energy to weakened systems. This energy might come from a therapist or energy worker, from a device which channels energies, or it might mean the living vibrational frequencies of foods and natural supplements which can bring our energy into balance.
If this sounds like mumbo-jumbo, there’s a reason for it. That’s because despite recent advances in quantum physics – showing that our thoughts can alter and affect the world around us and that matter is not as inviolable as it seems – the notions of “vibration” and “frequency” bandied around by healers is nebulous at best, and sometimes completed unrelated to the definitions these words have in physical science.
Nevertheless, frequency and energy healing have been substantiated as having more than a placebo impact; these treatments really do create results.
Some people seem to “sense” the energy of different foods, medicines, supplements, and even technology and other things that surround us in our daily lives. These frequencies can affect our bodies, our minds, and our state of well-being by bringing our own body frequency up or down, in tandem with their energy. When we ingest a food or supplement, its frequency, as well as its chemistry, affects us. These are the principles upon which homeopathy is based.
What is Homeopathy?
Often confused with naturopathy, homeopathy is the treatment of physical, emotional, or spiritual conditions and disease using the power of frequency and vibration, usually in a form that can be ingested. Unlike most other treatments you might find through a naturopath or a holistic practitioner, homeopathic remedies contain none of the medicine upon which the remedy is based – a homeopathic remedy is a tincture with no chemical healing properties, intended to heal by frequency alone.
Homeopathic remedies are made by taking a small amount of a medicinal herb, a metal, or any other element or ingredient, and diluting it to a tiny percentage in water. A small amount of this solution is removed, and diluted again in another large batch. This process is repeated until the dilution is so small that none of the original material exists – only the frequency, like a “memory” of the herb or element, is left in the water.
The Principle of Similars
Homeopathic remedies are used by the principle of similars. A plant or substance which causes an adverse reaction, when taken in dilution, can be used to treat that same reaction.
This approach seems counterintuitive. Why would you use a poison to heal from a similar poison? How can a recipe with none of the original ingredient in it even work? Yet they do work remarkably well when used as advised by a knowledgeable homeopath.
Homeopathic Remedies versus Other Supplements
While most supplements – foods, herbs, tinctures, essential oils – have a frequency as well as a chemical component (which enhance each other in synergy), homeopathic remedies work only because of their frequency.
Homeopathic remedies are usually preserved in a dilution of alcohol, sugar or salt, to hold the desired frequency for later use. When you purchase Bach flower remedies, milk sugar pills from Unda, or a variety of other homeopathics in supplement stores, this is what you’re getting.
Homeopathic Remedies in Use
Arnica is often used in a homeopathic form to treat injuries, wounds or bruises;
Belladonna (deadly nightshade), as a homeopathic remedy, is used to bring down fever;
“Rescue Remedy” is a well-known combination of several homeopathics which helps to soothe and heal trauma and emotional distress, in humans or animals.
In order for homeopathic remedies to stay effective, it’s best to keep them away from x-rays and electromagnetic emissions – so don’t set them on your tv, fridge, or next to a cell phone or computer if it can be avoided.
Homeopathics become stronger with increased dilution – so don’t think that mixing a drop of a homeopathic remedy into a larger vessel will make its impact milder.
