Organic Botanical Combinations in Homeopathy


The Basics: What Are Botanicals?

Botanical ingredients, or plant-derived additives, are known for their healing and medicinal properties. Sebastian Kneipp was one of the first people to commercialize the use of healing plants, and is commonly viewed as the “father of naturopathy.” He discovered over 40 plant remedies, with Arnica, a plant commonly used to reduce pain and swelling in joints and muscles, being one of his favorite herbs. He processed herbal remedies to form medicines, treatments and eventually bath and body products.

Some of the many benefits of plant-extracts or botanicals include:

  • They are rich in antioxidants
  • They prevent inflammation
  • They promote hydration

The Basic Principles of Homeopathy

Law of Similars

Homeopathy is a medical edifice of Dr.Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843).  Its main guiding principle is the law of similars which is called “simila similibus curentur” or “like is cured by like”. In other words, in homeopathy, observed symptoms are treated as well as the the cause for those symptoms, how these symptoms are manifested, where they are located, and what makes the symptoms better or worse.

Proving

This second principle of homeopathy relates to the method of testing substances on healthy plants and observing all the symptoms to determine the medicinal effects. Once the proving is chosen, it is combined with the modalities which describes the conditions in which a symptom gets better or worse. This results in a chosen remedy.

At Honeyopathy, our chosen combinations of plants (or botanicals) are chosen based on Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) and the 5 elements of nature. Provings of our homeopathic remedies have been proving one substance at a time, and is understood how they might interact, counter act or neutralize each other.

Homeopathy and its combined botanical remedies provide many benefits including:

  • Homeopathy supports the self-healing inner forces
  • Homeopathic remedies are residue free, safe and work very gently
  • No addiction, side effects or suppressed symptoms
  • Homeopathy has the smallest ecological footprint and does not waste limited resources
  • Homeopathy is very economical and sustainable
  • Homeopathy goes hand in hand with organic and biodynamic methods

The biggest takeaway? Using plant-based botanicals combined using homeopathy can actually help our bodies enhance physiological processes designed to keep us healthy, balanced, and connected to our natural rhythms.
