What is Homeopathy? Is Homeopathy Really Medicine & Does it Work?

Post image for What is Homeopathy? Is Homeopathy Really Medicine & Does it Work?

(With Amy Lansky, Ph.D., mama of 2) Have you wondered why we keep hearing more & more about homeopathy…why all the buzz? Or maybe you’re cynical of homeopathy, its effectiveness, its basis & overall use…this is your class mama. 

Dr. Lansky was a “lover of conventional medicine”, but saw the results of homeopathy with her own eyes & her own scientific approach. Healing her sick son was it. That was enough. She left the computer world to focus on teaching others the healing capabilities of homeopathy. 

We all know homeopathy has many skeptics. We also know traditional medicine ignores some of the best Evidence Based Options you have (especially in Evidence Based Maternity Care). 

As a homeopathic educator, Dr. Lansky teaches what homeopathy is, what it isn’t, how it’s different than “natural” & “conventional” medicine & why it works. It’s up to you to decide if it’s worth pursuing. 

P.S. We didn’t discuss this on camera, but want to include this information: Dr. Lansky’s husband maintains the www.medalerts.org database called the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS)- it has the same data as the CDC’s database but in a more user-friendly & more comprehensive way.

You’ll Also Learn:

  1. Why is homeopathy important & how can it help babies & children.
  2. What are the benefits to homeopathy for you & your baby.
  3. The history of homeopathy & about its founder- a well respected German doctor & chemist who pioneered good hygiene
  4. Why it’s based on the Law of Similars- “a substance that can cause the symptoms of a disease can also cure it.”
  5. How childhood diseases can actually serve a purpose in our children (for the good).
  6. Advice for parents who choose to vaccinate their babies. (this is good- write it down, remember it)

Who is Dr. Amy Lansky?

Amy Lansky, Ph.D. in Computer Science, is the mama of two (now grown) sons. Dr. Lansky’s professional life started in computer science in Silicon Valley, as well as being a consulting Associate Professor at Stanford University- and then her son was diagnosed with Autism & Dr. Lansky started researching homeopathy. When homeopathy ended up curing her son’s Autism, Dr. Lansky became impassioned to share her knowledge about homeopathy with everyone! She is a Homeopathy Educator and author of two books, “Impossible Cure: the promise of homeopathy” & “Active Consciousness: awakening the power within.” Dr. Lanksy lives in Cali.

    I am naturally skeptical. I’ll admit I have a hard time believing homeopathy. But I am going to be open minded about this. What I have learned so far from this site has been a big surprise to me, because I thought my only way to a baby was with an Obgyn at a hospital. Sarah, you’ve taught me there are other safe options and have shown me the evidence supporting those options. So I need to look at this more open minded. I also learned in your Get Smart articles to ask the question “why” many times to get to the root of an issue. So if I ask “why” I don’t or wouldn’t believe in homeopathy, I end up saying to myself “because I’ve been told my whole life the only way is regular medicine”. That isn’t good enough for me anymore! I need to see the evidence. Show me the money as Jerry MaGuire would say!! lol

      woohoo Stephanie! I like the way you think:) You are right. Asking “why” really helps us get down to the root of it doesn’t it? I encourage you to keep digging to figure out what you think and how you want to approach all your decisions…you don’t have to make the same decisions as the next mama…make one that’s right for your baby and family.

    “She linked the Autism to vaccines”. my bullshit detector is going off.

    • yourbabybooty

      What have you learned that has made you change your mind?

      • UsedToBuyIntoIt

        Thanks for asking. Looking at the clinical trials of homeopathy, and it’s history convinced me there’s nothing to it. Unfortunately, I did my homework long after I invested in many homeopathic treatments for my own children, including homeopathic vaccines.

        • yourbabybooty

          You’ve piqued my interest, what’s a homeopathic vaccine?

          • UsedToBuyIntoIt

            Great question.

  • Mychal

    This came at just the right time for me. I’ve been frantically doing research on vaccines since my son was born four months ago! I’ve deferred them all so far, and the research I’ve done shows some pretty scary long-term side effects of the vaccines. I don’t know anything about homeopathy (which is a horrid name, by the way; makes me think of psychopathy every time!), but this lines up with all of my research thus far. Since I’m avoiding vaccines, I realize that I’ll need to find some other way of caring for my son. I’ll definitely be checking out her website and other resources while I work on figuring out the whole vaccine thing! Thanks!

      So happy to read this Mychal (ps your name is one of my favorite girl names;) Vaccines are such a tough topic, very emotionally charged and honestly, pretty confusing!! At the end of the day, taking charge is most important. Knowing what you’re doing and why (or why not) is crucial. And then you step back, take a deep breath and really trust in the process (and start researching the next thing!!!). Another good book is the Vaccine Book by Dr. Sears. It explains how each vaccine is made, why some people choose to use it and others don’t. I felt the information was communicated in a non-threatening, unbiased way. Good luck! And let us know if you need anything else. We have another interview coming up next month with a scientist who used to make antibodies for vaccines, it’s a fascinating interview.

    Hahahaha. Just read “Usedtobuyintoit”‘s post. Too funny. You stick with your bullshit detector; I prefer scientific studies. To each his own.
