First Aid:  Homeopathy September 6, 1999
by Standard Homeopathic Company and Natural Healing Alternatives

Self-sufficiency will be the hallmark of the Year 2000 in most aspects of our lives, but especially healthcare. On or before January 1st, access to healthcare facilities and practitioners may be interrupted. This will be due to likely disruptions in the conventional healthcare system, or unknown infrastructure failures manufacturing, transportation or communications restricting access to all healthcare practitioners, supplies and services.

First Aid in any situation is often critical to the recovery of anyone suffering from a cut to a more serious condition. Fortunately, First Aid procedures and methods are straight-forward and not difficult to learn. The Red Cross as well as many schools, non-profit organizations and government agencies teach basic First Aid for shock, broken limbs, drowning, and many other conditions.

Complementary First Aid goes beyond basic First Aid to include remedies such as Acupressure, Aromatherapy and Herbology, Bodywork and Reflexology (see our online eGuide). This issue features Homeopathy another exceptional healing system.

According to Homeopathy, A Step by Step Guide (© 1997, Element Books, Boston),Homeopathic Medicine (usually called Homeopathy), "is a natural system of medicine that uses specially prepared remedies to stimulate the immune system. Although some remedies are made from herbs, Homeopathy should not be confused with Herbology [see previous issue]. Herbal Remedies use material concentrations of plants, while Homeopathic Remedies use plants, minerals and even some animal products as a base. They are prepared through a process known as "potenization" to bring out their subtle [but powerful] healing properties."

"We know from modern physics that our seemingly solid bodies are dense fields of energy. A disturbance in this field can give rise to [illness and] disease, and a potent form of energy can rebalance us. Homeopathy uses "potentized" remedies to rebalance our body's subtle energy system. Once back in balance, our immune systems and all other interconnected systems in our bodies function better.

Homeopathy uses preparations containing highly diluted solutions of substances as strong as Belladonna or as innocuous as salt. Standard dilution is to 1 part substance (or previous dilution) to 99 parts of milk sugar or alcohol. This is then "succussed" shaken vigorously to release the healing potential in the substance. This process is repeated several times, the number of which identifies the potency of the remedy: 6, 10, 30. If the dilution is based on one part substance/dilution to nine, the potency is followed by an X. The majority of our first aid remedies below are 30X.

It's interesting that the greater the dilution, the higher the potency, and more than 100 years of experience has shown that the succussion process has yielded higher potency for the more-diluted remedies 30 potency is used for more serious conditions that 6 potency.

For more information, pick up the book referenced above and read our eGuide chapter on Homeopathy.

Information Sources/Suppliers

The Hylands "Kids' Kit" from Standard Homeopathic Company (SHC) is used as the model for this article, and the majority of the information comes from its Guide. The kit contains the seven Homeopathic remedies used in the First Aid list below, and retails for about $22-$23 from SHC and healthfood stores.
