Heilkunst is a complete system of medicine used to prevent and cure disease. Created by the genius of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann over 200 years ago, the term means ‘the art and science of making one whole.’ As it is grounded in natural law, it is a safe method of health care suitable for any age, including pregnant and lactating mothers as well as infants. Heilkunst respects the Hippocratic Oath: “First, do no harm,” and is used to treat both acute and chronic conditions as
well as to improve overall health of body, mind, soul and spirit.
HEILKUNST ENCOMPASSES THREE BROAD AREAS IN THE RESTORATION OF ONE’S HEALTH OR WHOLENESS
diet, nutrition, exercise, supplements – involving imbalances
involving true disease
involving the deeper issue of the soul and spirit in terms of our false beliefs, illusions and delusions, as well as our deepest fears
What is Homeopathy?Homeopathy is the prescription of medicine based on the law of similars, i.e., that illness can be treated by a substance capable of producing similar symptoms to those being suffered by the patient. Only the minimum dose needed is given. Remedies are taken in an extremely dilute form – generally one part of the remedy to about 1,000,000,000,000 parts water. Only one remedy per disease is given.
What is the difference between Heilkunst and Classical Homeopathy? Classical Homeopathy limits treatment to presenting symptoms alone, which prevents the deeper healing made possible through the clinical and philosophical insights and observations of the Heilkunst practitioner. Heilkunst encompasses both the law of similars (homeopathy) and the law of opposites as applied in the realm of regimen (diet, nutrition, exercise, dormition and hydration).
The Sequential Approach Before your initial consultation you will complete a “sequential timeline” describing the emotional and physical traumas that have occurred through your lifetime. This will become the guide that you and your practitioner will use as a possible road map. The timeline chronologically lists events such as vaccinations, long-term use of medication, injuries, surgeries, and emotional trauma. After addressing any acute complaints, the Heilkunstler treats each event on the timeline using remedies that will treat the causes of each event, starting in the present and working back towards birth. This treatment can be compared to peeling the layers off an onion, and with the removal of each layer, some measure of health is restored.
What is a healing reaction? When you take a deep-acting energetic remedy for a chronic disease condition, you may experience a healing reaction. Healing is a form of elimination – old stuff that has accumulated must be cleared out. Much of this elimination takes place at the physical level, congestion, various discharges, skin reactions, aches and pains are among the kinds of symptoms you may see as part of the healing process.
Generally, after taking a remedy you should experience an initial improvement or sense of wellbeing. About 10-14 days after taking the remedy, you may experience a temporary worsening of your situation, with a return of old symptoms. This may last 1-3 days, followed by a return to the improved state you experienced prior to the healing reaction – often with improvements.
Through this process, as we gain freedom from our disease, we gain a greater appreciation of ourselves and the causes of that disease. We are in a better position to take the steps required to change our previous unhealthy style of living into a healthier one.
