What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a holistic approach to health based on the principle that “like can cure like”. Homeopathy gets to the root of the cause, not by boosting the body’s entire immune system, but by specifically targeting immune functions that directly relate to the disease at hand. This is done by introducing small, diluted doses into the body over a period of time to stimulate your body’s immune system to recognize the disease as a threat and build the proper defense system to fight the infection.
After testing with one of our providers, a staff member will explain how to properly take any supplement, Chinese herb, or homeopathy remedy that was shown to improve your condition. A calendar will also be provided to each patient to ensure that they follow the appropriate steps.
Series Therapy is one homeopathic remedy that we utilize in our office. Series Therapy consists of four phases over the course of 4-6 months. Each phase consists of 10 vials of varying homeopathic dilutions of the specific pathogen or nosode you have selected to work with. A provider will test you between each phase to assure optimum relief and supporting supplements to assist with any reactions.
Phase One: Symptom Relief
The first phase consists of 10 vials that are numbered from 1-10. These will be taken every third day in ascending order (1-10). On days that a vial is not taken, homochords are utilized. Homochords are a mixture of the 10 dilutions that are found in the vials. Homochords are to be taken 15 drops twice a day.
Phase Two: Symptom Relief
The second phase contains 10 vials that are also numbered from 1-10. These will be taken every third day in descending order (10-1). Homochords are not used in this phase but placed aside until the 4th phase. The first two phases create a bell curve, stimulating T suppressor and T helper cells. This stimulates your immune system to recognize the condition as a threat.
Phase Three: 1M
The third phase contains 10 vials that are all 1M concentration. The vials are taken every third day and homochords are not used in this phase.
Phase Four: 10M
The fourth phase contains 10 vials that are all 10M concentration. The vials are taken once per week. On days that the vials are not used, 15 drops of the homochord are taken twice a day.
The Herxheimer Reaction is a short-term detoxification reaction in the body. As the body detoxifies, it is not uncommon to experience flu-like symptoms including headache, joint and muscle pain, body aches, sore throat, general malaise, sweating, chills, nausea or other symptoms.
In a die-off reaction, there is a release of toxins, proteins, and oxidizing agents that results in an increase in inflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor alpha, interleukin-6, and interleukin-8. The symptoms of a die-off reaction are generally a worsening of the underlying symptoms. If a reaction lasts longer than 2-3 days, we encourage you to return for a re-examination as your body may need extra support to get rid of the die-off. There are ways to help a Herx Reaction on your own. These include increasing water intake, Epsom Salt baths, saunas, massages, and exercising.
