Curious to know more about homeopathy works? In today’s show, we dive right in with Julia Edgely. We focus on history, practice, and a couple of simple home remedies we can work with ourselves, as well as knowing red flag signs of when you need professional help or emergency physician care. I also ask her what her desert Island remedy is and why – it’s a goodie and I’ve already ordered it! Julia Edgely is an internationally practising and licensed homeopath. She treats a very wide range of patients but in certain cases, she saw a distinct pattern. Overuse of unnecessary antibiotics leads to pathologies sometimes years down the road. This led her to develop her signature method, The ABC Method which has helped hundreds of individuals and families eliminate unnecessary antibiotics use. She believes education and knowledge is the key to helping her patients embrace their wellness journey.
Questions I asked Julia:
- The history of and mechanism of homeopathy…
- Where it is still practiced in mainstream medical settings today (ie parts of France/Germany etc) and why it fell out of favour – if there’s an interesting story there re the rise of pharmaceutical/synthetic interventions for profit…
- Why did homeopathy call you to practice it? Is there a personal story there?
- One of the aspects to homeopathy that I personally love is the safety of exploration without necessarily needing a practitioner for guidance for those everyday health challenges that can pop up – sore muscles after a workout – grab the Arnica, for example. Can you share some of your top remedies to stash in the cupboard at home, what they’re for and when to use?
- Is there any downside to using them at home? Why should you not stress about home prescribing?
- When do you know you need a homeopath to support you?
- How to find your homeopath either local to you or online?
- Now let’s talk about a couple of complex situations where you would benefit from that practitioner guidance for a tailored approach… Chronic illness/infections, immune dysregulation, ongoing digestive challenges…
- You want people to understand the importance of remedy reaction – first of all – what do you mean by that!?
- A lot of parents like the gentle nature of homeopathy – what can we safely keep in our toolkit for simple children’s remedies to reduce the reliance on pharmaceutical support?
