Summer's Here.
And So Are Summertime Injuries.

When summertime hits, injuries ensue. Many of us have been out exploring long forgotten trails and woods in the past few months in the hopes of getting some sunshine while still keeping with social distancing guidelines. As summer ramps up, these outdoor adventures will likely increase and in turn we’ll likely see an influx of minor injuries and ailments. Dr. Lisa Samet has written several very useful articles on using homeopathy for first aid, including this one: Homeopathy for First Aid, the Most Important Remedies and How to Use Them. You can find other great articles by Dr. Samet on this topic here

Homeopathy as Green Medicine

Want to save the earth? Beyond its effectiveness and safety, did you know that homeopathy is also the GREENEST form of medicine on the planet by far?

Ordinary drug manufacturing is not only a contributor to global warming, but it is also dirtier than the global automotive production sector.1

Ordinary medicine also threatens our water supplies through the dumping of roughly 271 million pounds of drugs2 into our waterways and aquifers each year. And that toxic load does not include the drugs humans eliminate daily through bodily discharges. If current trends persist3, scientists estimate, the volume of pharmaceuticals diffusing into fresh water could increase by two‑thirds by 2050. Recent modeling shows that a platypus living in a contaminated stream in Melbourne is already likely to ingest more than half a recommended adult dose of antidepressants every day.

What about waste water treatment plants?

According to one study published by UNESCO in 2017, "Only nine out of 118 assessed pharmaceuticals were removed from wastewater during the treatment processes with an efficiency of over 95 percent, and nearly half of the compounds were removed only partially with an efficiency of less than 50 percent."4

And finally there is the problem of drug pollution contributing to the sharp rise in antibiotic-resistant superbugs.

So, you want to help save this beautiful earth? Homeopathy can make a significant contribution.

Homeopathy During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The current COVID-19 pandemic is creating enormous challenges for the world's healthcare systems. In an attempt to help, the American Institute of Homeopathy is working with other groups internationally (Lex Rutten MD and Tiziana Giampietro MD (ECH), Robbert van Haselen Ph.D./Vithoulkas Compass, and Frederik Schroyens, MD, Clificol-Zeus Opus) to collect case data on the adjunctive homeopathic treatment of flu-like illnesses and pneumonia during this outbreak. Learn more about this important initiative by visiting their website here. To date, hundreds of cases have been collected and analyzed with the data being shared across the globe within both the homeopathic and allopathic communities.

Women Who Have Made Great Contributions to Homeopathy

Anyone who has studied the history of homeopathy has heard the names of Samuel Hahnemann (homeopathy's founder), Constantine Hering, Adolph Lippe, Tyler Kent and others. What doesn't get nearly enough attention is the great work many women have done in the field. Here are the stories of just three of them.

Photo of Dr. E Wright-HubbardElizabeth Wright-Hubbard MD (1896-1967)

Born in New York City, Dr. Hubbard was introduced to homeopathy while traveling in Europe after her graduation from Barnard College.

In 1917 Dr. Hubbard began her studies at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons. This class was the first to admit women, and she was one of the first three women to graduate in 1921. Wright-Hubbard was also the first female intern at Bellevue Hospital in New York, where she rode the night emergency ambulance.

She learned her homeopathy from Pierre Schmidt of Geneva (and Emil Schlegel of Tubingen), Switzerland. They had been taught by Eugene Alonso Austin and Frederica E. Gladwin, two of James Tyler Kent's most illustrious pupils.

Her writings, lectures, and seminars made her reputation on the international level. In 1945 she served as president of the prestigious International Hahnemannian Association.

From 1959-1961 she served as president of the American Institute of Homeopathy, the first woman to hold that post. For many years she was Editor of the 'Homoeopathic Recorder' and subsequently Editor of the 'Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy.' Dr. Hubbard also taught at the AFH postgraduate homeopathic school.1

When her father, the late Henry Whatley Tyler, created the Tyler Wing to the London Homeopathic Hospital through his donations, he told Margaret, "I have done my part: now you must do yours."

She qualified in medicine in 1903 at the age of 44 and served on the staff of the London Homeopathic Hospital until her death forty years later. She was an excellent homeopath, specializing in developmentally challenged children. She also was in active medical service during the Battle of Britain in WWII, treating many casualties of the war.

Margaret Tyler wrote a number of excellent books on homeopathy, including How Not to Practice Homeopathy, Homeopathic Drug Pictures, Repertorising with Sir John Weir, Pointers to some Hayfever Remedies, and Pointers to Common Remedies.2

Drawing of Dr. Dorothy ShepherdDorothy Shepherd (1885 - 1952) MD, ChB Edinburgh3

Dorothy Sheppard MD was an outstanding homeopathic physician.  

Interestingly, although she grew up in a family that relied on homeopathy, her medical education took place at Edinburgh University and Heidelberg where she trained in ordinary medicine (much to the dismay of her family), with a focus on women’s diseases. Homeopathy was completely absent from her instruction.

In 1906, a painful sinus infection that developed during a trip to Hering College in Chicago led her back to homeopathic practice. On her arrival at the College, she met with a physician there who prescribed a remedy for the infected sinus. The result was astonishingly quick relief and a new passion for learning about a system she remembered only vaguely from her childhood. She went on to train with physicians who had themselves been taught by the legendary James Tyler Kent MD. She practiced homeopathy exclusively for the rest of her long and storied medical career.

One of the interesting moments of her career came during the Battle of Britain during WWII. She had an active practice in London during the Nazi Blitz and was called upon to treat many civilians wounded in the daily bombings. Despite the very difficult conditions, she relied entirely on homeopathy to successfully treat the many hundreds of patients in her care. She also left us a gift! Throughout her life, Dr. Shepherd wrote a number of extraordinarily good books on homeopathy, including Homeopathy in Epidemic Diseases, The Magic of the Minimum Dose, More Magic of the Minimum Dose, Homeopathy for the First Aider, A Physician's Posy, and A Dictionary of Domestic Medicine.4

Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) Customer Corner ​

Can you give an example of how homeopathy works?

Homeopathy is based on the principle that “like cures like.” A substance that can cause an illness or a symptom can also treat the same illness when given in a minute amount in a homeopathically-prepared medicine. Homeopathic medicine requires a process of continuous dilutions and succussions (vigorous shaking) in order to be effective. For example, with the homeopathic dose of Rhus tox, or poison ivy, the body works to rid itself of irritations from poison ivy. We have this remedy as a single homeopathic remedy available in various potencies as well as in our very popular WHP Be gone™ Poison Ivy product.
