There’s no question that alternative medicines are growing in popularity. People tired of being sick and finding little relief from conventional Western medicine are turning to more natural therapies like essential oils, Traditional Chinese Medicine, herbs, and homeopathy. Health is a complex journey requiring a number of applications from the ‘toolbox’ such as a nutrient-dense diet, exercise, smart sunshine, stress reduction, and appropriate medicines when illness arises. With so many alternatives, how does one know which tool to add to their box?
Newcomers to homeopathy find it daunting. Not only are the remedies prescribed in a manner contrary to Western thinking, but they are also difficult for the home lay-prescriber to apply correctly. Consequently, many folks turn away from homeopathy frustrated and doubting its efficacy. I admit I was one of those folks ten years ago when our family was first introduced to homeopathy. Because my mother was a licensed nurse, I found it extremely challenging to select the correct remedy when someone in my household fell ill. Time after time I saw no effect, but through determination and coaching from an experienced, trained homeopath I began to ‘get’ it and see remedies working. As a result, I came to value our family homeopath who–time after time–patiently invested her time into teaching us the basics. Like anything, there was a learning curve, but the efforts were worthwhile. Dramatically worthwhile.
When I became a classical homeopath, I strove to remain passionate about teaching the home prescriber the basics of this wonderful alternative. I vowed to patiently teach those brave enough to give homeopathy a go the foundations of this healing modality in a manner that was easy to grasp and efficient for busy people. Mothers, especially, have little time to devote to studying extensive materials, so I specifically tailor my classes around their busy lifestyles. Parts of my course offerings are intense, but I make it clear that I am always available to clarify any confusion my students may have.
This fall I offered a basic course of Schussler’s cell salts, or biochemic remedies. The response was astounding with a nearly full classroom. Next week I will begin a four-part series on using homeopathy at home for folks in the local Moscow area. Registration is currently open for the course, and participants may register here. Upon completion of payment, students will receive an extensive 70+ page course guide as a reference throughout the class series. If you have tried homeopathy in the past and found it wanting, I invite you to join us next week for personal, thorough instruction in homeopathy for the home prescriber. You will learn the foundation principles of homeopathy, a brief history, its applications for home care, and receive a certificate of completion at the closing of the course. You will also receive sample homeopathic remedies for home use, thanks to the generous support of the Moscow Food Coop wellness department and txoptions.com.
