About Dr. Frazier

Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a scientific system of health care which activates the body's own healing processes in order to cure disease naturally, gently and promptly. Homeopathy is a natural pharmaceutical science that uses very small or infinitesimal doses of substances from all three realms of nature – plant, mineral and animal. These activate the body's nervous system to initiate the healing response.

leafThe word homeopathy is derived from the Greek “homios” meaning similar and “pathos” meaning suffering.

The science of Homeopathy was founded in the early 1800s by a German physician and chemist, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, while doing research into the toxicological effects of the medicines of his time. Dr. Hahnemann discovered that a specific dilution of a substance would remove the symptoms that substance was capable of evoking. Through numerous experiments, he advanced the theory that “likes are cured by likes” and today it is a verified law of pharmacology; “The law of similars.”

For example, if one drinks too much coffee, the mind races and prevents sleep; the nervous system gets on edge and trembling may even result. A specifically prepared dilution of coffee will gently and promptly reverse these types of symptoms.

Ipecac in a large dose causes nausea and vomiting. An ill person suffering from the same or similar symptoms improves after taking a specifically prepared dose of ipecac.

Another example would be a cook slicing onions. The eyes will burn and water profusely and the nose, too, may water and sneezing may occur. However, if they had not been handling onions, they would probably be suffering with these symptoms from hay fever. As you might expect, one remedy for this condition is the onion, specifically, diluted by the exact homeopathic instructions.

WHAT TYPE OF DISEASE CAN HOMEOPATHY TREAT?

Homeopathy does not treat diseases per se. Homeopathy activates the body's own healing processes in both the physical and mental/emotional levels. The range of problems in which Homeopathy can be effectively utilized is extensive and includes first aid, acute illnesses, and all manner of chronic conditions.

HOW SOON CAN RESULTS BE EXPECTED?

In acute illnesses, the appropriate remedy can act within minutes. It is commonplace to see a child who is screaming out in pain with an earache, drop off to sleep in one or two minutes after a dose of the appropriate remedy. Though astounding improvements often take place, do not be discouraged if these instant improvements do not occur in chronic or long term conditions. As the vitality of a person needs to be strengthened, there may even be a temporary worsening of symptoms. It may take as long as 1 to 2 months for noticeable improvement in chronic cases.
