I choose homeopathy as my family medicine because I want control over our health. We might go in for medical checkups, and theoretically lab tests can be useful. Only a vet could spade my cats. Homeopathy quickly returned them to health after the surgery. Acutally, I have found that through careful observation of myself and my family and pets, we have no need for medical services other than homeopathy.
Becoming a professional homeopath has cost more than 10,000 dollars, but when I think of the pain and suffering that I have avoided, the hours spent feeling lost in doctor’s offices and the simple loss of control over my life, this cost was all to my advantage.
I have tried herbs, supplements, essential oils …. Honestly, most of the time, the cost and the effort to learn the information necessary to use these other methods is not worth the effort. Furthermore, unlike the certainty that I have with homeopathy, I never have that level of certainty that I have made the right choices with these other forms of internal medicine.
I practice a form of acupuncture on myself and depend on a Japanese chiropractics to keep my back in shape. Like homeopathy, they are best when skillful methods of observation are used. I practice various forms of exercise and they are very important, but I feel they deal with an area that cannot be covered by homeopathy.
