Traditionally we don't treat our ailments, we treat the symptoms of our ailments. I think the dilution is the whole point. Homeopathics treat the disease with the same substance that could have caused the problem, but in a minute form. They use the minute form because it is believed that in that potency healing can be stimulated. (Kind of reminds me of vaccines a bit.) I wish that my trainer could voich for this thread. She has an arsenal of info of homeopathy, and her training approach is even holistic. Here I am reading Chinese medicine books and practicing Tai Chi when I thought I was "just training my horse" but I swear to God it has improved my relationship with my horse as well as my whole way of being.
