What it really takes to move from disease back to healthWe all know that the body is only able to re-establish its natural equilibrium, or perfect state of health, when a whole range of processes come back into balance. This might involve providing the body with phytonutrients, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, or other constituents that are missing in the diet. It might also involve taking out a gamut of things that upset metabolic processes within the body, such as white flour, sugar, alcohol or a toxic working environment. It might necessitate proper lymphatic drainage by getting the patient to engage in regular exercise, yoga practice or use of an inversion table. For many people, especially those who have been poor responders to less multi-faceted treatments, it will almost certainly involve work on the patients emotional health.
Even more distasteful to the mainstream is the work of some practitioners who yield stunning results when also working with subtle energies and a patients bioenergetic field. Indeed, the existence of this area is only just beginning to be recognised by mainstream medicine. And, lets remember, these are just a few of the strategies that might be employed in a single patient benefiting from integrated healthcare systems that really work.
90% of chronic ill-health has often been said by nature cure gurus to arise from a toxic colon.
Colon cleansing in the form of colonic irrigation is often a useful tool in the road to good health. However, the same effect can be achieved with cellsalts. The bowel is self-cleaning once deficiencies are dealt with.

Homeopathy, an ether based science - see
Walter Last new website -- http://www.heal-yourself.com.au/index.html
"Homeopathy cannot be
understood as a substance based method, such as drug medicine or herbalism where
any healing effect is due to chemical reactions. A simple calculation shows that
in the higher potencies not a single molecule of the original substance will be
present. But these high potencies are often more effective than low potencies.
Therefore, homeopathy can only be understood as working with energy remedies.
The explanation is that
every natural substance has an etheric field around its molecular structure. The
special shaking action or potentizing used in homeopathy separates the etheric
fields from their material substance. The latter is then discarded and the
former concentrated. These concentrated etheric fields are much more potent in
this way than when they were combined with matter. Similar etheric concentrates
can be produced with radionics instruments. The healing effect of such
concentrates depends on their vibrational frequency. Because of this the name
vibrational medicine has been coined for these methods."
"Whenever critics may say that homeopathy does not have any good research. we can confidently inform them that they are not familiar with the scientific literature."

- How I became a Homopath.
and the following article is excerpted from the book.
By "chronic disease" Hahnemann did not mean exactly the same thing as is now generally understood by the phrase - a disease that lasts a long time and is incurable. To make his meaning clear, I cannot do better than quote Hahnemann's own definition of acute and chronic diseases, from paragraph 72 of his Organon :-
By "miasm" Hahnemann means an infectious principle, which, when taken into the organism, may set up a specific disease. According to Hahnemann, there were not only miasms of acute disease, like the infectious principle of scarlatina, for example, but also of chronic diseases. Among the latter he recognised three - syphilis, sycosis and psora. The first is the lues venerea, which is recognised by all schools alike. The second is allied to this, but is distinguished by the production of characteristic warty growths. The third is a discovery of Hahnemann's, about which there has been the greatest misconception.
Before giving an account of what Hahnemann meant by "psora," I will give a familiar instance of a chronic miasm - the disease set up by vaccination. Vaccinia or "Cow-pox," as the late Dr. Matthews Duncan pointed out, is extremely analogous to syphilis in many of its characteristics, and not the least in the appearance of secondary disorders after the primary illness is over. The course of the disease is well known. The virus having been introduced through an abrasion of the skin, in about a week inflammation occurs at the spot. Then there appears first a vesicle, then a pustule, then a scab, and finally a scar when the scab drops off. During the time that this series of events is occurring, constitutional symptoms manifest themselves, chiefly in the form of fever and undefined malaise. When the healing has taken place, there may be nothing more occur. The organism may have reacted perfectly and discharged the miasm. But this is not often the case. The diminished susceptibility to small-pox infection shows a change of a deep constitutional character. This constitutional change has been named "vaccinosis" by Burnett, and, as I can attest, is the parent of much chronic illness. Often skin eruptions occur, lasting for years, or various other kinds of ill-health, lasting, it may be, as long as life lasts, and not seldom shortening life. When such a series of disorders occurs, it is not (according to Hahnemann's doctrine, though he did not use this illustration) a succession of new diseases, but different evolutions of one and the same disease, the "miasm" of Vaccinia producing the chronic malady, vaccinosis.
In the early years of his homopathic practice Hahnemann noticed that in certain cases the remedies he gave only produced temporary benefit. In these cases he found that the homopathically of the remedies given was not complete. There was some factor in the case which had not been matched. It became apparent to him, then, that he had not only to take account of the malady but also of previous and apparently different maladies. And he found the remedies which corresponded, in their action, to the whole course of the pathological life of a patient were needed for a cure ; and through his provings he discovered what these deeply acting remedies were.
Many cases he met with in practice where the ill-health dated from the suppression of a skin disease, probably years before. That skin disease, said Hahnemann, is really a part of the present disorder. To take a common example, asthma is often found to appear after the "cure" by external means of a skin disorder. The patient is not suffering from two diseases : there is, according to Hahnemann's pathology, one chronic miasm at work producing the two effects.
The large majority of chronic diseases Hahnemann traced to the chronic miasm he termed "psora," and he maintained on the skin of the miasm was an eruption of itching vesicles, of which the itch vesicle was a type. It has of which the itch vesicle was a type. It has been stated that Hahnemann ascribed to the itch the production of nine-tenths of chronic diseases, and he has been accused of ignorance in not knowing that itch was caused by an insect. But Hahnemann not only knew of the itch-insect, he actually figured it in one of his works. But he maintained that, in spite of the presence of the insect, this was not the whole of the disease - just as the tubercle bacillus is not the whole of pulmonary consumption. If it were, no doctors would escape consumption, since they inhale the bacillus constantly from their patients. "The itch," Hahnemann maintained, "is chiefly an internal disease'. 'Psora is an internal disease a sort of internal itch and may exist with or without an eruption upon the skin.' 'Psora forms the basis of the itch.' To the reckless suppression of the chief external symptoms of psora Hahnemann ascribed the prevalence of chronic disorders.
To put it in other words, the psora doctrine of Hahnemann is practically the same as the doctrine of certain French authorities who ascribe a great variety of chronic diseases to what they call a 'herpetic diathesis', that is to say, a morbid state of the organism liable to manifest itself on the skin by an itching vesicular eruption.
The essential truth of Hahnemanns doctrine may be seen by taking a glance at the history of individuals and families. The skin eruptions of childhood, the late development of bones and teeth, the anaemia of puberty, and the consumption which finally carries off the patient, are not so many different diseases, but different manifestations of one and the same disease, whether we call it 'psora' with Hahnemann, or 'herpetic diathesis' with the French. Then, again, take a family : one member has enlarged and inflamed glands, one ulceration of the eyes, one a chronic cough, one hysteria, one eczema. They are all children of the same parents, with the same elements of heredity, and their diseases are essentially one and the same, only manifesting itself differently in different individuals. This disease Hahnemann called a 'chronic miasm'. The seat of its operations is the vital force, which can only be freed from it by dynamically acting homopathic remedies.
In his study of the chronic miasms Hahnemann found many other very characteristic symptoms besides the occurrence of eruptions on the skin; and he found remedies having corresponding symptoms, which he gave to patients with single success. Among those remedies which he found to produce symptoms likest to those occurring in psoric patients, Sulphur takes the foremost place.
Hahnemann's great works on Chronic Diseases gives the symptoms of these remedies at length. This work, of which the full title is "The Chronic Diseases : their Specific Nature and Homopathic Treatment," is the crowning work of Hahnemann's career.
It will be seen from the above sketch that Hahnemann's theory of disease is profoundly philosophical and intensity practical. It is as far as possible removed from tentative and fragmentary theories of disease current in his own and in our day. Hahnemann's pathology goes hand in hand with treatment, and is thus checked at every step by the test of practice.
