What is Homeopathy

I have recently talked about homeopathy on The Joyful Hour podcast you can listen to it below.



Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine that treats ailments with carefully measured doses of substances derived from the natural world.
Discovered more than 200 years ago by Dr. Samuel Hahnemman, homeopathy’s guiding principle is: “Like cures like.”
Hahnemman believed that every symptom could be treated with the same substances that cause those same symptoms to appear in healthy people.
Instead of suppressing symptoms, homeopathy — derived from the Greek words meaning “similar” and “disease” — uses substances that support those symptoms in an effort to encourage the body to cure itself over time.
By the 20th century, homeopathy had become an integral part of European mainstream medicine and is extremely popular throughout the world, including the prefered medical treatment of Great Britain’s royal family.

Among others, homeopathy can help with the following acute cases
Viruses, Ear infections, Flu, Upper respiratory infections, Coughs.

Homeopathy can also assist with chronic conditions; among others we have had success in treating the following
PDD, ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism, Behavioral Issues such as fear, anxieties, OCD, etc.
Allergies, Asthma, Acid reflux & Colic in babies, Skin eruptions, Anxiety, Depression, Phobias, Sleep Disorders, Pre & Post natal care, Chronic Bedwetting

About

Keren Levy specializes in classical homeopathy at the Miami Beach Pediatrics Center for Integrative Medicine, where she has treated children and adults with a wide range of ailments. Keren discovered the study of homeopathy after graduating from college, and was immediately drawn to its systematic approach to healing and restoring the body’s vital life forces. Keren completed a four-year graduate program at the Medicine College in Tel Aviv, Israel, where she studied with the world’s foremost experts on homeopathic medicine, remedies, and the homeopathic treatment of children. With over 10 years of experience at the forefront of homeopathic treatment, Keren is regularly invited to lecture across the South Florida and mentors graduate students conducting research in the field. In addition to collaborating with homeopaths, Keren values an interdisciplinary approach and works with other physicians who practice across various fields. Keren holds a B.A. from the State University of New York and a master’s in homeopathy from Medicine College in Israel.

Approach

Homeopathic treatment
Keren studied homeopathy for four years at Medicine College in Tel Aviv, Israel and continued her graduate studies at QVIUS International University. During the course of her education, Keren studied under some of the most notable figures in the field, including Dr. Rajan Sankaran, Dr. Chaim Rosenthal, and Jeremy Sherr, whose mentorships influenced her multi-faceted and integrative approach to treatment. Keren’s guiding philosophy about homeopathy is that successful treatment requires a partnership between the homeopathic practitioner and the patient. In intake sessions she encourages openness and candor from her patients, in an environment she works hard to maintain warm and judgment-free. During treatment, Keren offers follow-up visits designed to fine-tune dosing, adjust plans if new symptoms arise, and closely monitor the progression of the patient’s treatment.

Re-patterning sessions
Keren also offers one-on-one coaching — a program she developed called “re-patterning” — designed to help you break out of damaging thought and behavioral patterns, form new ones, and ensure your homeopathic treatment is amplified and boosted with positive lifestyle changes. When Keren noticed many of her patients slipping back into their old ways of thinking — the same ones that made them sick in the first place — she knew she needed to expand the scope of her approach. She developed re-patterning to help patients understand how old habits and patterns, often informed by trauma or past experiences, can bring chaos to one’s life and eventually lead to disease. Keren’s re-patterning program helps clients identify the source of their old behaviors so they can work toward developing positive and productive new ones. The body’s diseases often bear direct relation to unresolved or bottled up emotions — and when these emotions go unresolved, the body becomes vulnerable to disease. Because society often discourages us from open expressions of anger, fear, sadness, and even joy, the body spends tremendous energy suppressing those emotions and not enough energy to sustain your health. That’s why Keren designed the re-patterning program to help clients identify emotional bottlenecks, release them appropriately, and develop behaviors and strategies to set them for long-term balance and success. While a smart remedy can create a dramatic improvement in a patient’s health, deliberate lifestyle changes are critically important in maintaining this improvement. That’s why Keren believes so strongly in coupling homeopathic medicine with strategic re-patterning consultations.

What are Homeopathic Remedies

Homeopathic remedies are always all-natural and are made from plants, minerals, or animal origin. The process of transforming the original substance to a prescribable remedy is called potentization and succussion. This process consists of repeatedly diluting the original substance until it becomes safe to use and its potency is powerful enough to spur effective healing. Homeopathic remedies are individually prescribed and given in small, safe doses to treat and prevent acute and chronic diseases. Homeopathic remedies, unlike drugs, have no harmful side effects and are not addictive. Prepared according to the American Homeopathic Pharmacopocia and regulated by the FDA, the remedies are safe for adults, the elderly, babies, children, and pregnant women.

What should I expected when visiting a homeopath?

Homeopathic practitioners are trained to view and understand their patients holistically. During the initial intake session, patients are encouraged to talk about anything in their lives that might be related to the illness they are experiencing. The success of your homeopathic treatment depends on the practitioner’s ability to prescribe the right remedy for your unique constellation of symptoms. It also depends on the skill of the homeopathic practitioner, the severity and duration of the illness, and the extent of prior suppressive treatment. While homeopathic treatment is not always able to cure every ailment, it can most often help improve a patient’s physical, mental, and emotional overall well-being.

Homeopathy also has advantages that other treatments don’t. Unlike many modern prescription medications, homeopathic remedies are always natural and safe for all ages — including children, pregnant women, and the elderly. And while modern medicine tends to address very specific symptoms, the homeopathic remedy is always prescribed with the whole person — not just his or her symptoms — in mind. Homeopathy is designed not only to target specific symptoms, but to restore a place of balance or homeostasis to the entire body.

Homeopathy can be a safe, powerful, and extremely effective way to address the root of one’s symptoms — whether your ailment is stubborn and has not responded to other interventions, or whether you are experiencing symptoms for the first time. Miami Beach Pediatrics is available to discuss our homeopathic approach with you in person or over the phone in order to help you decide if homeopathy is the right approach for you.
