An acquaintance related his story to me about how his attempts to help his poison ivy with homeopathy led to inflammation of his eye, giving cause for a miraculous cure with homeopathy.
Homeopathy Delaware’s May 2nd meeting hosted a ‘full house’ of folks interested in learning about homeopathic remedies to help natural healing from injury and surgery for people and pets. Barbara Bason spoke about using remedies at home for simple acute injury and on the way to emergency care. Attendees learned many of the same remedies, plus a few others, can be used after surgery to support the body’s natural healing process – the wonderful result being more comfort, less need of narcotic drugs and shorter recovery time. The use of the best indicated homeopathic remedy for the patient and the trauma will go a long way in preventing reliance on opioid pain meds.
How many consumers of over-the-counter non-homeopathic medicines and prescribed medicines give thought to the probability that the symptoms from which they seek relief are a picture of chronic disease versus a troublesome acute problem? How can we understand the difference and what this means in a deeper context ? Attendees at Homeopathy Delaware’s February meeting were enlightened about this while listening to Dr. Shelley Epstein of Wilmington Animal Hospital, who is certified in veterinary Homeopathy, speak about recognizing chronic disease in our animals.
