“Wholistic” Medicine with Dr. Jayne

Dr. Jayne explains Naturopathic and Homeopathic medicine and why it is such an amazing “wholistic” approach to treating the whole body. Then the body can become healthy on all levels, physical, mental and emotional.

I am a Naturopathic Doctor who also has a degree in Homeopathy. I became a Naturopathic Doctor first, but went on to specialize in homeopathy because I realized that homeopathy was the most effective medicine there was when it came to eliminating what I recognized to be the underlying cause of why often people get sick. I believe that is the subconscious programs or fears that cause anxiety, and distorted energy patterns. They lie in the subconscious, and we recognize them when we get triggered, on a mental emotional level. Homeopathy goes in and erases the pattern, allowing the individual to become healthy on all levels, physical, mental and emotional. 

Many people ask me what the difference is between Naturopathic Medicine and Homeopathy. Many mix the two up or use the terms interchangeable. Even after explaining I find many still call a Naturopath a Homeopath and visa versa. And understandable, I mean they are both treating illness naturally, right?? Well yes, this is true, however …..they ARE very different.

A Naturopathic Doctor or Naturopath is one of the few degrees in the entire world that is recognized and accredited. Meaning the education itself is carefully considered, and controlled by a board, providing the graduate a background in a similar education to that of a medical Doctor (anatomy, physiology, pathology, etc.) but then after the second year in a four year degree the student learns how to treat physical ailments with natural treatments. We learn to treat with Botanical Medicine, Nutritional supplements, counseling, Hydrotherapy, Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, AND Homeopathy. Homeopathy is one of the modalities a Naturopathic Doctor uses to treat!

A Naturopathic Doctor learns how the human body works, the science in health, illness and treatment, but then learns the art of treating the whole human being, the physical, the mental and the emotional aspects. Most importantly, finding the cause and then treating through these different modalities.

I decided to specialize in homeopathy, because I found it to be the most effective in treating the cause. 

Homeopathy is a scientific and effective system of medicine that has been in use for over 200 years. Homeopathic medicine works by stimulating the body’s own natural tendency to heal itself, with a push from a well matched homeopathic remedy. It recognizes that all symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the patient, and the internal pattern that needs treatment, not the disease. Homeopathic treatment is based on the philosophy that the body, mind and emotions are not separate parts of a person, but are all affected by each other; therefore the homeopath seeks to observe a pattern in the disharmony which is affecting the complete individual resulting in disharmony and disease.  As such, it is a truly holistic medicine that treats the individual on all levels – mind, body and emotions.

Homeopathy is most curative when a constitutional Homeopathic intake is done. Approximately one and a half hours are needed, looking at the whole person taking into consideration all symptoms and characteristics on the physical, emotional and mental planes. When well prescribed, a homeopathic medicine or remedy can allow for a profound healing response and be very effective in treating all types of disease. Anxiety, ADHA, Eczema, Psoriasis, Digestive issues, Migraines, Hypertension, Menstrual problems, just to name a few. The true beauty of it is, once a remedy has been found (the cost of the remedy is 5.00!) only short follow ups are needed, (30min) and how the  physical has responded will  lead the way, redosing accordingly, and as needed. 

From there I use Naturopathic Medicine to support the physical and enhance health, vitality and longevity. But once true healing has happened at a deep level through homeopathy the vital force is strengthened, and this becomes easy and supportive.
