My first encounter with homeopathy was nothing to do with electrosensitivity. It was around 15 years ago. I had been suffering from shoulder pain for several months and having tried various different doctors and medicines someone suggested I should go and see a homeopath.
It was a bizarre consultation. The doctor asked me lots and lots of questions. How I slept, what kind of work I did, what my bowel movements were like, if I had nightmares, what I ate etc. It did all seem a bit impertinent. I came out with a prescription and went to the chemists to fetch the medication.
I remember being given lots of little tubes of tiny little pellets.
I took these pellets as instructed by the doctor over the coming days and weeks . Unfortunately this homeopathic remedy offered no significant relief for my shoulder pain.
Then about seven or eight years ago, when my electrosensitivity symptoms were giving me a particularly hard time, my wife said “why don't you try homeopathy?” We were on holiday at the time and I came across a homeopathic manual in a bookshop.
Through a process of observing my symptoms and matching these symptoms with the symptoms described in the manual I began to experiment. And it was surprisingly successful.
Sometimes I got it wrong, but because homeopathic medicine is so strongly diluted even when you do take the wrong remedy it does not matter because it rarely produces unwanted effects. Added to which this kind of self diagnosis is very low cost.
By way of an introduction to homeopathy I would like to share with you the following two video presentations.
In them you will learn:
-that there is a strong body of research to support the use of homeopathic medicine published in prestigious journals like the Lancet and the British medical Journal
-that homeopathic medicine is a perfectly safe natural medicine
-that homeopathic medicine because it's so diluted has absolutely no side-effects, which contrasts sharply with conventional medicine
– that homeopathy can be used effectively and safely to treat a wide variety of illnesses
Can Homeopathy Cure Electrical Sensitivity?
Yes and no.
If you are able to determine the correct homeopathic remedy to use for your particular circumstances and symptoms then I believe homeopathy can offer a cure for electrosensitivity. It all dependends on the skill of the practitioner.
My own experience of homeopathy is that it's a safe, often effective and inexpensive way of alleviating certain symptoms of electrosensitivity.
By the way, did you know that homeopathy is being used for radiation poisoning?
Anyway here are the videos and transcripts below:
Clinical Research on Homeopathy
Dana Ullman: “I have to admit I get a bit upset when I hear people say that there is no research that proves homeopathy works. That’s simply plain wrong. The Lancet, in 1997, reviewed 89 clinical trials. They found that on average, patients given homeopathic medicine were 2.5 times more likely to get clinically beneficial result than patients given a placebo.
Research On Specific Diseases
There has been more research on some specific diseases. A research reviewed 3 important studies in leading pediatric journals on the treatment of children with diarrhea. Now, diarrhea in America is not a big problem, but in 3rd world countries it’s one of the reasons that several million children a year die due to dehydration. 3 studies have confirmed homeopathic medicines individually prescribed to children are able to reduce the symptoms of diarrhea faster.
In addition to these diarrhea studies, there was a review of research on allergy patients, including rhinitis, hay fever and asthma; often giving homeopathic doses of substances that the person was allergic too. Sometime it was pollen; sometimes it was house dust mite. Two of these trials are published in the British Medical Journal and one of them in the Lancet. Consistently, they found that homeopathic medicines were significantly able to enlist a healing response in patients.
In addition to these studies, a significant study was published in one of the most respected journals in the world dealing with respiratory health: Chest. This was in the treatment of people with chronic bronchitis or emphysema. This was research done at the University of Vienna Hospital. There was a highly significant improvement. Many people think that homeopathy is only effective for minor ailments. But this study showed that homeopathy treats people with serious diseases, a disease that is the number 4 reason that people in America die. It shows that homeopathy can treat people with some of the most serious diseases today….”
#3 Why Homeopathy Works and Makes Sense
How Homeopathy Works
Dana Ullman: “This video is called Why Homeopathy Works and Makes Sense. The underlying assumption behind homeopathy is that symptoms are not necessarily something wrong with the person. But that symptoms are defenses, symptoms are the ways our body and mind are trying to fight infection, and adapt to stress. So in understanding symptoms, inflammation, coughing, fever, nasal discharge, are defenses of the body.
Fighting the Symptoms
Although these are certainly irritating and although we can use conventional medicines to temporarily remove that symptom, that doesn’t cure the problem. Anymore than just unscrewing your oil warning light in your car will solve your problem of your oil pressure. Instead, by looking for a medicine in nature, that could in overdose cause similar syndrome of symptoms that the sick person is having, will augment the body’s own immune defense systems.
Because symptoms are defenses, instead of using pharmacological agents to suppress the symptoms, you look for something that would actually mimic them. In homeopathy, we are too scientific to assume that there is one medicine for every person’s disease. In fact, in homeopathy, we don’t see any diseases as local; we see all disease as syndrome. So your flu, your migraine, headache, your PMS, your arthritis, your whatever disease, you have your own species of it. Your migraine headache obviously isn’t like someone else's migraine headache.
In homeopathy, we look at medicine that will mimic not just the migraine syndrome that you’re having, but the other symptoms that you may be experiencing at this time. We use these very small doses; what we call nano doses. Nano is one of few words in the English language that means very small, and at the same time very powerful.
That is what homeopathic medicines are. They go through this process of diluting and shaking, and they are made pharmacologically, and will not have any effect on you unless you happen to hypersensitive to that particular substance. You will be hypersensitive when the symptoms of your illness happen to match the toxicology of the substance.
Homeopathic textbooks provide the most detailed information on toxicology presently available. By matching that substance's toxicology with the symptoms the sick person is having will mimic the body’s own wisdom and help initiate a healing process.
Now, more than ever, we need natural ways to stimulate the body’s own immune and defense system in order to heal the person. Although these small doses initially may not make sense, they may not have any capability of causing any biological effect. In fact, 200 years of experience, and a body of several hundred basic studies and clinical practice, have also confirmed that homeopathic medicines can be effective.
Submarine Radio Communication Metaphor
One of ways that I understand how these nano doses have any effect is in light of a metaphor that almost sounds like a bit of joke, and that is submarine radio communication. Radio waves are right now going around our heads and you’re not hearing them. But if you’re underwater, and you’re in a submarine, a normal radio wave will not penetrate salt water. What you have to do is you have to use what is called an ultra low frequency. In order to penetrate salt water, a single wavelength is typically several miles long. It’s that’s low of a frequency. The words ultra-low are inadequate. It’s ultra, ultra low.
But if you think about it too our blood, like salt water, is salty and is mineral rich water. Perhaps the best way to communicate with it is with ultra low frequencies, or in this case nano doses of a substance. Once again they’ll not have any effect unless a cell, or the human body, is hypersensitive to it. There is a principle in music and in physics which we see. When you hit a C note of a piano, it reverberates with other C notes of other instruments in the area. There is hypersensitivity from similarity.
The trick in homeopathy is to find the medicine that matches your pattern of symptoms. These days we use expert system software; professional homeopaths commonly use this to find the medicine. You can use books to help you figure out which remedy you need for your unique syndrome; whether it be a migraine, headache, allergy, a simple cold or flu.”
If you are suffering from electrical sensitivity give homeopathy a try!
