Alternative Treatment of Graves Disease | Basedow

Graves Disease Cured with Homeopathic Treatment!

Lori was middle-aged, around 50. She appeared thin, haggard, nervous and so restless, she could not sit still for even a moment. She would fidget constantly. Her arms and legs were twitching and jerking. She would jump up suddenly, pace back and forth and then sit back down again.

“My heart races, my blood pressure is high. I have tried to stay away from blood pressure medication. Instead, I take bugleweed tincture for it. It brings it down some, but not enough. The problem is my thyroid; I have been diagnosed with Graves’ disease (an autoimmune form of hyperthyroidism). At first they had me taking beta blockers for the high blood pressure, but I did not like the drugs. Actually, they did not like me! I got worse headaches from them, and was even more tired. So, I weaned myself off the medication, and now I am taking the bugleweed. I am feeling better but still have a lot of problems. I am depressed and tired. My eyes are irritated. I get headaches every day. I have heart palpitations. I am always too hot. I’m nervous, anxious, even panicky, and I have lost weight as you can see (showing me the waist band of her pants), even though I have a very good appetite. I hope you can help me.” I assured her we’d give it a good try before I gave up on the case. Read more

Interview with Homeopath Leslie Johnson on Tautopathy

Christina Mueller, Director of The Homeopathic College, interviews homeopath Leslie Johnson.

Leslie is a new homeopath having just graduated in June 2013 from the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine. She is a registered pharmacist in the US where she and her husband own a drugstore. I specifically wanted to know more about her interest in tautopathy¹ – the homeopathic use of a potentized drug or other offending agent to treat for the harmful effects of a crude or toxic dose of that substance/exposure.

The Practice of Tautopathy During the Classical Era of Homeopathy

A Review of the Literature

By Manfred Mueller, RSHom(NA), CCH

The tautopathic method in homeopathy is one that I have seen great benefit from in my own practice. When used as a pretreatment, it can be very effective in removing obstacles that would otherwise keep well indicated remedies from working, or even prevent aggravations from occurring. I have seen this method render patients deemed “incurable” by other homeopaths be cured by pretreatment with tautopathic prescribing. In fact, in some cases, I have witnessed miraculous healings where no conventional homeopathic remedy was ever prescribed because the patient had been suffering from an iatrogenically induced disorder and the most similar remedy was in fact the tautopathic one.

I and others have, in the modern homeopathic era, spoken out in favor of using this method as another tool in the homeopathic toolbox. However, I have noticed that within our own community there is a vast difference in opinion on the subject bordering almost on a rift. During my earliest ponderings on the possible use of the tautopathic method in the mid-eighties, I searched as much of the literature as I had access to. However, given my current observations on the reactions to this method, I felt it was warranted to do a more thorough review and documentation of this topic for presentation to the homeopathic community at large. In fact, I have found that the controversy on this subject is nothing new. I hope you will find the results both useful and of interest. Read more
