What is homeopathy and how does it work?
Homeopathy is an age old healing art that can be traced back centuries. Before pharmaceuticals were introduced, homeopathics were the “go-to” choice for health care. The basis of homeopathy is based on the principal that “like cures like”. By exposing the body to an extremely diluted amount of a substance, a large and beneficial response can occur. The results, among many, can be a stronger immune response specifically towards a virus, or a healthier process of liver detoxification or a revival of the adrenal system, which controls the release of hormones in the body’s response to stressors.
It was discovered that the vibrational energy of a homeopathic substance produced the desired effect, not the actual substance itself. This concept did not make sense until recent times, as Einstein’s theory of the relationship between mass and energy is now understood and established. Modern science now understands that everything is made up of energy with its own specific vibration. This vibration gives an object its characteristics.
Homeopathics help to “hint” the body a better and more efficient way to heal. Homeopathics are safe and gentle on your body. Unlike pharmaceuticals, homeopathics work WITH your body, and help teach your body a better way to heal.
How do chiropractic and homeopathy work together?
Chiropractic and homeopathy are an amazing fit!
As proper nerve communications are restored in the body between your brain and body through specific chiropractic adjustments, the body can begin to heal and restore itself to proper function. This can be a BIG job! (Think of trying to clean out a room that has not been properly cleaned for 15 to 20 years.) This is where homeopathy fits in perfectly. Homeopathy helps make the process easier and smoother.
Homeopathy and chiropractic also fit together philosophically. The major premise of chiropractic is that the body has an inborn knowledge of and ability to heal and adapt to stress and the environment. Homeopathy also falls within this same philosophy. Health is the natural created state of the body, not sickness and disease. To be healthy, it has often been said, “The body doesn’t need help, just no interference.” This is no small task as the list of possible interferences (physical, chemical, and mental) continues to increase in the fast-paced, fast food, high-stress, and high tech 21st century.
Homeopathy does not add or remove anything from the body; nor does it change how the body functions in an unnatural way. Homeopathy supports the body’s innate knowledge and ability to heal itself.
How does Dr. Keppy know which homeopathic remedy I need?
While there are some procedures in homeopathy that utilize symptoms to arrive at a specific formula, we do NOT utilize those procedures in our patient care. Symptoms are misleading and do not necessarily indicate the most important area your body needs to heal. A form of muscle testing (kinesiology) is used to assist in finding what area your body is working on or what area your body would like help with (this process is referred to as a biosequencing scan). The homeopathic formulas support the healing process that your body needs at that particular time. By re-balancing, re-educating, and restoring an organ or system, your body becomes stronger and therefore, healthier. Healing occurs sequentially, or in layers.
Throughout your life you have come into contact with many different stressors. Often times your body heals from them but sometimes it is unable. If unable, your body may place these issues on the “back-burner” to be dealt with later, when your body has the time/energy/know how. These “back-burner” issues can stack up over time producing layers of challenges. The order in which your body wants to heal these is VERY important. We trust your body knows exactly how it needs help, step-by-step, and the techniques we use in our office supports you in this healing process.
What is Biosequencing?
Biosequencing refers to the method of analysis used by the doctor to determine which treatment modalities are indicated in each individual patient’s particular situation and in which order they should be applied. This allows for precision treatment of each patient’s specific needs.
