About Homeopathy … the best kept secret in American medicine
E-Guidebook by Dr. Maryann Ivons, ND
“About Homeopathy” an E-Guidebook, explains the concepts and principles of homeopathic medicine and homeopathic remedies in an understandable way.
Homeopathy has always been practiced in America and was most popular in the late19th and early 20th centuries. At that time there were homeopathic medical schools in the US and it was an accepted part of mainstream choices for medical treatment. By the early 20th century the use of homeopathy was displaced by allopathic medicine and emphasis on the use of pharmaceuticals.
Since the 1970s, however, homeopathy has experienced something of a renaissance. Used in Europe and India for years, this safe, effective and inexpensive treatment modality is being rediscovered by a population who has found it to be an effective and accessible way to obtain their health care. “About Homeopathy” an E-Guidebook, explains the concepts and principles of homeopathic medicine and homeopathic remedies in an understandable way. It also offers resources for those interested in pursuing more detailed information about this important treatment modality.

When urinary tract problems occur, antibiotics are typically the first treatment option. Sadly, many of these problems are neither acute nor infectious in which case antibiotics are rarely effective or appropriate. Homeopathy, which specifically addresses the cause of the problem, is a fast, safe, and highly effective alternative to antibiotics, with an excellent success rate for treating both acute and chronic conditions and disorders affecting the kidneys, ureters, the bladder, urethra, and prostate.
In this Module you will review the anatomy and physiology of the urinary tract, differentiate infection from inflammation, make a distinction between acute and chronic conditions and disorders, and cover, among others, infectious and interstitial cystitis, kidney stones, and prostatitis. You will also examine the Homeopathic Materia Medica of remedies with an affinity for the urinary tract system such as Cantharis, Staphysagria and Equisetum, and review, in depth, the pertinent rubrics that can successfully repertorize these cases.
