Energy medicine is both a system for self-care and self-help, and complementary to other medical approaches to care. It can address physical, emotional and mental health issues and disorders, promoting high-level wellness and peak performance.
Healing occurs by activating its natural healing energies, and restoring energies that have become weakened, disturbed, blocked or out of balance.
Energy medicine utilises techniques from healing traditions such as acupuncture, yoga, kinesiology, and qi gong. Flow and balance can be restored and maintained within an energy system by tapping, massaging, pinching, twisting, or connecting specific energy points (acupoints) on the skin. Energy medicine can be used to treat illness and relieve pain, stimulate immune function, release stress, improve memory, enhance digestion, and cope with electromagnetic pollution. By learning simple energy techniques to keep the energies balanced we can improve our health, sharpen our minds, and increase our joy and vitality.

Homeopathy is a medical science developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), a German physician. It is based on the principle that “like cures like”. In simple words, it means that any substance, which can produce symptoms in a healthy person, can cure similar symptoms in a person who is sick. This idea is referred to as the “Law of Similars“, and was understood by Aristotle and Hippocrates, and is mentioned in ancient Hindu manuscripts. It was Hahnemann, however, who turned it into a science of healing.
Here are examples of this principle:
- An onion is a substance which makes your eyes water and your nose burn. If you are having an attack of hay fever with watering eyes and a burning nose, a homeopathic remedy made from onion can relieve it.
- Poison ivy causes redness, intense itching, burning, blistering and sometimes stiff muscles. Homoeopathically it has been used for everything from herpes and burns to eczema and arthritis.
- When you are stung by a bee you feel a burning, stinging pain and the tissues surrounding the area swell up. Some relief is gained from applying cold to the area. If you had swollen tonsils with burning and stinging pain relieved by cold, a homeopathic remedy prepared from the same source could cure.
A second principle of homoeopathy is that the least amount of medicine should be given to evoke a healing response. Called, the 'minimum dose' Hahnamann began a process of successive dilutions and agitations of the medicines to establish the point at which they were therapeutic but not toxic.
Currently there are three thousand substances used as homoeopathic remedies to treat everything from colds and cough to arthritis and cancer. For example during the The worldwide influenza epidemic of 1918 killed 22 million people worldwide and 500,000 in the U.S. The death rate was 30% or higher for those treated conventionally, while homeopaths cured an amazing 98% of their cases! During the Cholera and Typhus epidemics in Europe from the 1860’s to early 1900’s, people using homeopathy had survival rates 50% or greater than those treated by conventional medicine. In an epidemic of Typhus in Leipzig (1813), Dr. Hahnemann treated 180 cases of Typhus, losing only two patients. Mortality rates for conventional treatment were over 30%. And during the cholera epidemic of 1849 in Cincinnati, with survival rates between 40 -52%, those treated by homeopathy had a 97% survival rate. These results were published in the local newspapers of the day.
