8 Reasons Why You Should Study Homeopathy
Did you know that Ancient Egyptians and Hippocrates suggested using the bark of a willow tree for pain relief? Today, this effective treatment has been harnessed into what we now know as over-the-counter Aspirin.
And Aspirin is not the only medicine we use today rooted in traditional natural remedies. Dr. Tu Youyou developed an antimalarial compound, saving millions of people, and for which she won a Nobel prize in 2015, based on an old folk remedy she discovered in a book dating back to 340 AD.
Homeopathy, developed in the 18th century, uses the principle of like cures like. This holistic medical practice fights symptoms with a tiny stimulus from a substance that can cause similar symptoms and thus bring about a natural healing response. This reaction is observed in hundreds of modern drugs and called a rebound effect.
Sometimes, with all the advances in technology, we forget how long we’ve been on this planet, the knowledge we have gained in that time, and how the knowledge was passed down to us.
Chances are, you already incorporate homeopathic remedies into your wellness routine, but maybe you’re curious to know more about homeopathic medicine. Maybe you’re looking for a way to answer questions about your health and want to understand why you aren’t feeling well.
Or maybe you’ve always had a passion for holistic wellness and want to help others. Whatever the reason that has brought you here, we’re glad you’ve come and we can help provide you with the answers you seek.
What Is Homeopathy?
Before we go deeper into the reasons why you should study homeopathy, let’s first unpack more of what homeopathy is. Also known as homeopathic medicine, homeopathy is a medical system developed in Germany, by physician Samuel Hahnemann, over 200 years ago.
It is based on the similitude principle, also called like cures like. More specifically, what gives the symptoms to a healthy person can also be used to treat a sick person with the same symptoms. For example, have you ever cut an onion only to find yourself with burning, teary eyes, and a runny nose?
These same symptoms are often present when you have a cold. That is why some cold relief homeopathic remedies include Allium Cepa, a remedy made of onion, as it brings about the same symptoms.
Essentially, homeopathy works at restoring the natural balance of the body by triggering your body’s innate healing response. It is effective at treating both acute and long-term conditions and is divided into different areas of study.
Homeopathy is more sustainable than traditional medicine as it’s non-polluting and leaves a small carbon footprint. It uses the purest ingredients available, is kind to the body, and is not known for side effects with other medicines.
We, at HomeopathyStore.com, believe the more you know, the better off you are. You should be informed about what you put in your body, and what better way to be informed than to study homeopathy?

1. Homeopathy Learning Is for Everyone, Not Just Practitioners
Becoming more knowledgeable about a topic that interests us is how we grow as humans. Learning more about homeopathy is not a restricted privilege that only those who want to become practitioners are privy to.
It’s your right, as a human being, to want to learn more. Studying homeopathy is a learning experience for those who want to know more about the mysteries of life and how to integrate homeopathic knowledge into their daily lives.
Whether you’re a mom, caregiver, health guide, wellness guru, or someone who is simply passionate about what you put into your body, homeopathic study will be beneficial to you.
2. Reward Yourself with the Gift of Knowledge
Homeopathic medicine is rooted in a belief system that the body can cure itself. Our bodies are powerful entities, and very often, we don’t give them the credit they deserve. When you decide to study homeopathy, you enter a journey of self-discovery.
You’ll learn to listen to the signs your body has been giving you over the years. You’ll take notice when something feels off and what natural remedies work within you. The more you discover about this beautiful art, the more self-care tools you’ll unlock within yourself.
3. You Have Always Been a Caregiver
Homeopathic medicine is not just about helping yourself; it’s also about helping others. For many, it’s in our nature to want to take care of others, to make them feel better. Nothing makes you feel better than when you’ve helped someone feel better; it's what makes you feel alive.
Maybe you’re the one bringing your neighbor over the pot of homemade chicken noodle soup, or maybe you’re the mom who stays up all night worrying about your child’s cough. If you have an innate calling to want to help others and love to learn, the study of homeopathic medicine is a great place to start.
"I love how this course was taught. It was very easy to understand, fun, and with good tips! I highly recommend it to those who would like to expand their knowledge of Cell Salts."

4. You Can Apply What You Learn Immediately
Once you start learning about homeopathy, you can start applying it daily for whatever ails you. Although homeopathic remedies are often geared towards alleviating ailments, once you get to know your body better, they can also be used to strengthen your immunity, protect yourself from illness, and at the first sign of a weakness or when you experience an early trigger of a recurring condition.
For example, do you worry about your child going to school each year and picking up germs only to then get sick for weeks on end? Homeopathic remedies, such as cell salt Ferrum Phosphoricum can work to build up your child’s immune system and can be taken before school starting.
What we have always loved about homeopathy, is the more you learn and know, the more you’ll find your overall health improving; mentally, physically, and emotionally. You’ll cut back on traditional medicine visits as remedies such as cell salts can help you address at least 50% of everyday health concerns.
5. It’s A Way to Keep Old Traditions Alive and Thriving
Knowledge of natural medicine and remedies was often passed down through stories, from family members over generations. Today, much of that knowledge has been lost, and fewer people know about the beautiful and intricate natural way plants and minerals can be used for healing and strengthening our bodies.
This may be one of our favorite reasons why you should study homeopathy.
Homeopathy may be rooted in old traditions, but these traditions were passed down because they work. While technology advanced, paving the way for new forms of medication to be designed, that doesn’t mean old traditions stopped working.
If anything, it’s the simplicity of knowing how to treat an ailment and what works for you, your body, and your family. And it’s the knowledge that you get to pass down to and share with your family members, whether they be your children, parents, nieces or nephews, cousins, furry companions, or even your friends.
6. It Goes Beyond Treating Ailments
The more you know about homeopathy, the more you understand the harmonious connection our bodies have with the universe and the vital force that the universe gives off.
When this force is disturbed, disease or illness is often the result and can show up within many of the areas of our health. It is through studying homeopathy that you’ll understand better how everything impacts how we feel, from the food we eat to the minerals our bodies need.
Including homeopathic remedies in our daily habits helps to support our immune system, our emotional and mental health, and more. They work to aid our bodies and minds in feeling their best and don’t require a prescription.
For example, the cell salt Kali Phosphoricum can be added to your routine when you know you are about to face a stressful situation, such as giving a presentation at work. Cell Salts are easy to use, body-friendly, and conveniently fit in our medicine cabinets as well as make perfect travel companions.
7. The World Is Changing
We are living in an ever-changing world. The pendulum has swung so far into the way of technology, advanced science, machine learning, and more that we’ve gotten too far away from our roots and traditions; from intuitive ways that have always worked for us. And we’ve gotten too far away from the natural world.
Learning about homeopathy, Schuessler cell or tissue salts, and other remedies might just be what we need to counter the pendulum swing. Because while technology serves its purpose in so many ways, it connects us to you, for example, through this website and this blog post, we – as humans – aren’t made of technology.
We are derived from nature and the more we distance ourselves from our natural surroundings, the less grounded we become and the more it seems to work against us – especially when it comes to our health and well-being. We innately know when something is off within us, and we know when we feel better. Studying homeopathic medicine puts the control of your health back into your own hands.
