Homeopathy — What Are You Buying

Homeopathy is now ubiquitous throughout the world as a common method of healing. According to a 2010 article in the Huffington Post, over 100 million people rely on homeopathy as their primary form of healthcare in India alone. In Europe, homeopathy is a multibillion dollar industry entrusted by hundreds of millions of people.

Homeopathy does not just work fantastically well, it also happens to be incredibly affordable, fitting into anyone’s healthcare budget. People trust Arnica Montana to heal or prevent bruising and Calendula Officinalis to stop burns. There are hundreds of homeopathic remedies that treat a wide array of conditions.

But what exactly are you buying when you purchase a homeopathic product? Two things really:

  1. Lactose (the sugar that makes the pill), and
  2. Energy medicine

Homeopathy is a Western method of “energy first” that was created by a physician named Dr. Samuel Hahnemann around 1790. Homeopathic products are made by diluting an herb in a fluid such as water so many times that in the final dose – in the lactose pill that a person actually ingests – there is no herb remaining, not even a single molecule. All that remains is the energy of the herb. And that is all that is necessary to heal the mind, body, and spirit.

When people purchase homeopathic pills, whether they realize it or not, they are purchasing energy medicine. Homeopathic remedies are trusted by millions of people around the globe to provide a standardized, repeatable therapeutic benefit.

When thinking about Qi Infusions™, it can be helpful to remember that homeopathy and Qi Infusions™ are both forms of standardized energy interventions. Where homeopathy is based on Western herbalism, Qi Infusions™ are based on classical Chinese medicine. While fundamentally different approaches to health and disease, they both agree on one fundamental principle: heal the energy first.
