Here Are Frequently Asked Questions:
Homeopathic medicine is a natural pharmaceutical science that uses various plants, minerals or animal extracts in very small dose to stimulate a sick person’s natural defenses or bring inner harmony to a person out of balance. Medicines are individually chosen for their ability to cause similar symptoms that already exist in an imbalanced person when taken in a concentrate and when used in a potentized dilution will bring a curative response to those very symptoms. They are “smart medicines” that communicate where the deep inner root of disease or imbalance lies.
In essence, homeopathy is composed of two systematic methods: toxicology and case taking. First, we find out specific physical, emotional, and mental symptoms that various substances cause in an overdose. Homeopathic tests add more detail on toxicology than any other source. Next, we interview the patient to discover what physical, emotional and mental symptoms the person is experiencing. We then find a substance that would cause similar symptoms when taken in concentrate and give that to him or her in a small potentized dose that is perfectly safe and possesses curative action. They are all FDA approved for use.
Results vary for each person. Some people feel dramatic improvement within the first month, but for others, it may take longer. It generally takes a minimum of 6 months. Years of stress or illness can take its toll, so it often takes time to restore health. On average it takes one month of repair for each year you’ve suffered from a specific problem.
Homeopathy is based on a “whole person” approach. The remedy or treatment program is customized and individualized to the patient, with the intent of removing the underlying cause.
Conventional (allopathic) medicine usually relies on treating a patient’s physical symptoms. This treatment might also assume a person’s symptoms need to be controlled, suppressed or removed.
Actually, at one time homeopathy was popular in the US. Today, it is quite popular in many countries around the world—in France, England, Germany, Greece, India, Pakistan, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and South Africa. Approximately 40% of the French public have used homeopathic medicines, and 39% of the French physicians have prescribed the medicines. About 20% of German physicians occasionally utilize these natural medicines, and 45% of Dutch physicians consider them effective. A New York Times article reported that visits to British homeopaths is growing at a rate of 39% a year. Homeopathy is also growing in the United States. Market research shows that sales of homeopathic medicines have grown at a rate of 10-20% per year during the past ten years.

Doctors in the US used to practice homeopathy as the mainstay of medicine from 1825 to 1940 until pharmaceutical medications were discovered. Homeopathic medicine courses in medical schools such as USCF medical center became elective. The course at USCF still exists today, but it is sparsely attended by the medical students. Until medical schools reintroduce homeopathy as a valid medical intervention, doctors will not offer it in their clinics. However, some doctors do refer patients to us when they think homeopathy can help their patients. It is our hope that in our Academy health professionals will be trained to bring these skills back into all medical centers throughout the country.
Doctors are not properly taught about nutrition while in medical school. With the increase in the volume of new drugs and surgical techniques, medical students are overburdened with focusing just on these alone. Many medical schools no longer even offer family practice programs in the course curriculum. The focus is more on specialization. This is why the public often feels that when seeking medical care, it seems a piecemeal approach. At Trilogy Medical the whole person is always considered in the delivery of health restoration. When diet and nutrition can solve a disease such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and heart disease, it is always used first.
Many women who have come to our clinic to become healthier in general, or specifically to help conceive, have been successful. Several women were able to conceive when they lost 30-40 pounds alone. Others with more serious infertility sought out our homeopathic medicine services to help improve the brain-body connection, and they have been successful. We have had approximately an 80% success rate by 4-6 months with conception held until full term even with women who were infertile for up to 6 years.
