Definition of Allopathic Medicine

Allopathic medicine: The system of medical practice which treats disease by the use of remedies which produce effects different from those produced by the disease under treatment. MDs practice allopathic medicine, which is also called conventional medicine.

The term “allopathy” was coined in 1842 by C.F.S. Hahnemann to designate the usual practice of medicine (allopathy) as opposed to homeopathy, the system of therapy that he founded based on the concept that disease can be treated with remedies (in minute doses) thought capable of producing the same symptoms in healthy people as the disease itself.

The American Medical Association (AMA) and the National Residency Matching Program use the term to refer to the schools and residency training programs which they govern, e.g. an allopathic medical student. Thus, the term distinguishes these schools and programs from those that receive accreditation by the American Osteopathic Association.

More 1st Aid…EYEWASH with natural ingredients

Briana, my daughter-in-law has had a persistent, minor infection on her lower eyelid…a small stye or an inflammation of an eyelash pore (?)…since January. It had gotten tender to blink…and sore. She asked if there was anything we could do to help it heal.

Remembered an interesting, easy-to-make eyewash listed in the Higley’s Reference Guide For Essential Oils. They say it’s from Stanley Burrough’s book Healing For the Age of Enlightenment, mentioning that it has helped “clear glaucoma, cataracts, spots, film, and growths of various kinds.”

Well, it lives up to its reputation! Bri used the drops (one in each eye, 3x day) for most of a week. Then she was out of town for ten days and a bit more erratic with the applications. All pain/discomfort has vanished and the red inflammation is almost gone. Another week or so of use and it should be totally cleared up.

Her hubby (my son, Marc) used it to relieve his very itchy, hayfever eyes as well.

Here’s the recipe:
– 5 Tablespoons distilled water (we used 10 Tablespoons to keep it from ’stinging’ as much)
– 2 Tablespoons honey
– 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar.

Shake well to mix. Put in a dropper bottle to use. Does not need refrigeration.
NOTE: It stings a bit when you first put the drops in, but the stinging diminishes quickly.

Give it a try, if your eyes are in need of care.
