Homeopathy on the Internet - Miranda Castro Homeopathy

Homeopathy on the Internet


A couple of years ago I sent out nearly 100 emails to friends and colleagues around the world asking them to send me their favorite homeopathic websites. In addition to these, I added my own favorites. I trust this compilation of homeopathy sites on the Internet will inform, interest, and inspire you. If you have faves of your own that are missing from this page please let me know.

So many of the sites listed in this article are fascinating, as well as fun. I hope you will jump into this virtual ocean of learning and explore it to the end of the Internet and beyond!

There are unpleasant distractions on many websites; ads that pop up (some of which are cunningly disguised as messages), flashing banners which give you an instant migraine, orange backgrounds and tiny print which make reading on a computer screen impossible. I tended to exclude these–as I did those that were slow to load or outdated.

The Internet makes studying homeopathy a breeze for students, homeopaths, and teachers. There’s tons of information, much of it interesting and even fascinating. The trick is to be careful about the time you spend on sites of dubious scholarly value! The Internet is full of people who are writing all their thoughts, feelings, and opinions with little to no editing.

Searching on the web ⬆️

Google is universally considered one of the best search engines. There are French and German Googles at www.google.fr and www.google.de respectively!

Searching is an art. Choose your words carefully and vary them to find other sites. Spell homoeopathy with the extra “o” to scoop up sites in England, or spell it like the French do (homeopathie) and see what you get. Put the words “classical homeopathy” together within quotation marks and your search will give you results with that exact phrase. Use the full botanical names for remedies (e.g., Atropa belladonna) to find those sites with botanical and homeopathic information. Otherwise, you will tend to get a lot of “other” sites. Try searching for “deadly nightshade” (the common name for Belladonna), then for “Belladonna” alone. Then, finally for “Atropa belladonna.” Each search gives different results with the last search producing many more botanical and homeopathic sites.

Click on the Advanced Search button on Google’s home page and play with your searches to uncover some real treasures.

Many homeopathy sites have “search” buttons and some have them on every page. Search wildly! Type in anything that crosses your mind. See what happens.

Frustration-free surfing tips

Type the exact name of the site you want to visit. That means every single dot in exactly the right place.

Use your local library if you don’t have a computer.

Limit your time and stretch frequently so you don’t turn to stone!

Use “bookmarks” in your web browser so that you can return to an interesting site. It isn’t easy to remember where you’ve been.

Search with care and cunning (see above!)

Animal care ⬆️

Many veterinarians have their own websites full of information and articles. Just search for veterinary homeopathy to find them!

  • Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy: for referrals to veterinarians who practice homeopathy | www.theavh.org
  • The American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association | www.ahvma.org
  • Informational sources on the web for everything and anything to do with animals and alternative treatments–including homeopathy | www.altvetmed.com

Join one or more of the Facebook Groups for pet lovers and homeopathy.

Books ⬆️

Everyone’s favorite bookstores are Nature Reveals (formerly Minimum Price Homeopathic Books) and Homeopathic Educational Services. Most of the pharmacies below also sell books.

Nature Reveals (formerly Minimum Price Books) has a huge  homeopathic book section: a comprehensive homeopathic bookstore with many book reviews. Flexible and varied search options make finding a book easy | https://www.nature-reveals.com/

Homeopathic Educational Services: this site has an incredible number of books and products and a plethora of useful links | www.homeopathic.com

Get some incredible deals on used/second-hand homeopathic books and kits and other homeopathic paraphernalia | www.ebay.com

Books online

An extensive collection of homeopathic books (in English) online | https://hpathy.com/ebooks/

Go to the above site and click on the 9 th link down the page: ” Download-Seite Organon der Heilkunst” to download Hahnemann’s Organon in its original German | www.mickler.de

An unbelievable collection of homeopathic books online many of which have photos and illustrations. Bradford’s biography of Hahnemann, The Life and Letters of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, is a distinct treasure. This site is seriously addictive: do not go to it late at night unless you can take your laptop to bed with you | www.homeoint.org

Consultations ⬆️

There are many websites offering homeopathic treatment by email–for both humans and animals. 262 sites came up when I searched for “homeopathic consultation” online–many from homeopaths in Pakistan and India. The homeopaths concerned may never meet or speak with their patients. As with all other consultations, you are advised to seek out homeopaths that are qualified as well as certified with reputable, national homeopathic organizations. It is always advisable to consult with your homeopathic practitioner face to face if at all possible.

Forums ⬆️

Connect with enthusiasts from around the world and discuss everything homeopathic including philosophy, methodology and materia medica.

Scroll down to the chart of therapies at the bottom of this (long) home page and click on homeopathy. The link at the top, “Homeopathic Discussion Groups,” takes you to a listing of these sites | www.holisticmed.com

Browse the messages on the web’s biggest online homeopathy discussion board and join the list so you too can participate | www.lyghtforce.com

Another popular homeopathic discussion group | www.minutus.org

Education ⬆️

There are a tremendous number of websites offering online education or distance learning opportunities. From basic, first-aid homeopathy courses to more comprehensive ones. Using the words “homeopathy” or “homoeopathy” and “distance learning” or “online” and “course” or “class” (e.g., “homeopathy online class” or “homoeopathy distance learning course”) will bring up hundreds or even thousands of results.

If you are interested in studying homeopathy at a real school instead of a virtual one, then search for “homeopathy school” or “homeopathy program.” Use the forums to find out which schools or courses might suit you the best.

You will find a listing of schools here https://homeopathic.com/schools-and-training-programs-in-homeopathy/

Events ⬆️

Several websites publish homeopathic events in the U.S. and around the world. Whole Health Now ( www.wholehealthnow.com ) and the NCH website ( www.homeopathic.org ) have the two best seminar, conference, and homeopathic events listings.

Fun stuff ⬆️

This German pharmacy site has hundreds of photographs of homeopathic remedies. Click on the British flag (for English) and then click on “Arzneimittelliste” in the bar on the left-hand side and again on the same word in the middle of the next page that appears. All the remedies that have a “link” are listed in blue and can be clicked on for further information and many beautiful photos | www.gudjons.com

This website has a surprisingly smart online remedy finder that is fun for when you are stuck in bed with a cough or the flu and are bored with playing computer games or watching daytime soap operas and the remedy you took isn’t working. The process of questioning takes you from the general to the particular in a way that encourages you to think like a homeopath | www.abchomeopathy.com 

General interest ⬆️

This was where I got stuck in a veritable homeopathic wonderland of data. These sites are my and many other people’s favorites. If your favorite site isn’t here, let me know. (It may be because it isn’t up-to-date or is slow to load or has a ton of annoying ads on it.)
