As chiropractors, a major key to addressing the whole nervous system is obviously found in the mental and emotional realm. Although individual approaches have been developed to therapeutically enhance our mental and emotional health, none has achieved the depth and dimension of what homeopathy has accomplished.
All official homeopathic ingredients have had unique comprehensive clinical testing on humans called “provings”. The uniqueness of the double-blind proving studies of homeopathy has set it apart from all the other approaches in physical, mental and emotional healthcare. These provings show how we are vitally interconnected to the elements of our environment, our specific symptomatic responses to each of these elements, and the therapeutic results that can be achieved with each of these substances.
For example, a homeopathic proving of Rhus Tox (Poison Ivy) is performed by homeopathically-trained medical professionals by giving approximately 100 healthy people a certain amount of Rhus Tox and systematically observing them over a specified time. As one would expect, itching vesicles would appear, but a lot of other unexpected symptoms would also occur. Trained homeopaths are taught to systematically observe people, beginning with the mind and emotions. They then work through the rest of the body, including the head, eyes, ears, nose, face, teeth, mouth, throat, appetite, stomach, abdomen, stool, anus, urinary organs, male and female sexual organs, respiratory tract, chest, heart, neck and back, limbs, generalities, skin, sleep, fever, and modalities, or what makes the symptoms better or worse. Even unique, peculiar, or different dreams, thoughts, or behaviors are recorded in detail. All this information is then used to match certain symptomatic patterns in the provings with similar symptomatic patterns in people outside the proving group.
Trained professionals have laboriously done the exhaustive compilation of this specialized and unprecedented clinical testing. The results of these studies are meticulously recorded in detailed Homeopathic Materia Medicas and Repertories. The FDA, along with the majority of other regulatory organizations from other countries around the globe, accepts this research and uses it as a guideline for drug registration, claims, and labeling. The majority of the major countries have applied this valuable homeopathic research safely and effectively from both clinical and regulatory perspectives.
Homeopathy has passed the test of time and adversity. There is no other drug product that has withstood this level of scrutiny. Homeopathy offers us, literally, the safest products on the planet that can honestly claim to have “no side effects” and “no known negative drug interactions.”
Our most effective results have come from combining highly potentized combinations of deep acting homeopathic remedies, aromatherapy oils, and flower essences from around the globe (Bach/English, American, Australian, etc.). All three of these remarkable healing arts, when homeopathically potentized, have provided the most comprehensive natural approach for the healing and restoration of our mental and emotional states.
Although these approaches are highly effective and essential for the enhancement of our mental and emotional health, they do not fully negate, but, rather, dynamically help assist us in our powers of choice, responsibility, and accountability in life.
We have discovered a broad spectrum of multiple potencies of homeopathic remedies, flower remedies, and aromatherapy oils to permeate the deeper levels of the mind and emotions. They are specifically combined to gently and safely bring healing to the innermost portions of our beings. The multiple potency approach is essential to more completely impact us at every level, offering the greatest good therapeutically. A broad spectrum of X potencies, 1M potency, and especially the LM potencies, have provided the greatest results, including the highest percentage of results, percentage of cures, speed of response and gentleness of results with the minimum of healing reactions, retracing or crises. This approach provides an actual cure and correction of many perplexing mental and emotional issues that sabotage our highest expressions of health and life.
Traditionally, in homeopathy, the mental and emotional symptoms are keynote symptoms that are measured as most important to finding the correct remedy to best help the whole person at every level and dimension of life, physically, mentally, and emotionally. The mental and emotional formulations have been key to correcting some of the most resistant or difficult physical cases. Homeopathic mental and emotional formulas should always be considered to better help the whole person and more efficiently correct even general cases.
