Short notes on Electrohomeopathy --------------------------------

Electro homeopathy is the science of herbal medicine used in conjunction with th e theories of bio-energy. The term itself is indicative of the approach the scie nce takes to treatment and healing: electro means energy, homeo means similar, a nd pathy means suffering. Guided by four long-revered principles, electro homeop athy involves culling remedies from various nontoxic plants. Electro homeopathy does not utilize electricity in the traditional sense of the word; instead, it e mploys the energetic element in undiluted botanical concentrations. This type of homeopathic medicine was first developed in the 19th century by an Italian count named Cesare Mattei. Mattei was a student of various forms of scie nce, and he devised a way to treat patients utilizing the "energy" from plant co ncentrations. While controversial even in his own time, Mattei's findings genera ted great interest and were tested on tens of thousands of patients by well-resp ected doctors; the pope even opened a special hospital ward for electro homeopat hy. Despite this acclaim, the practice has been met with great criticism both du ring and after Mattei's lifetime and, in contemporary society, is practiced by a small group of devoted practitioners. There are four laws governing the practice of electro homeopathy. Practitioners adhere to this series of principles when treating patients, making diagnoses, de veloping treatment plans, and prescribing appropriate extracts. The first two gu iding principles of electro homeopathy are the Law of Similar, or Complex Comple

xis Curantur, which states that complex bodies demand complex medicinal combinat ions, and Complex Remedies, which ensures that each individual will receive the right combination of medicine for his or her condition. The last two areas are I nfinitesimal Dose, which signifies the diluted form of a prescribed positive and negative dose, and Selection of Remedy, a diagnostic tool that states that each individual falls under one of four types of body temperament. In electro homeopathy, plant extracts are designated by color, which is then use d to treat a patient. This color coding allows for easier mixture and understand ing of the body's condition. For example, a red fluid may be combined with a blu e fluid to encourage stimulation, while a white fluid may be used to energize th e body. Green and yellow fluids might be combined to alleviate pain. Patients of this practice cite many benefits of electro homeopathy. Chief among them is the noninvasive approach of treatment. Many also highly regard the all-n atural aspect of the healing; no pharmaceuticals or drugs are involved. There ar e no known major side effects of electro homeopathy.
