Homeopathy in permaculture is a natural progression. Permaculture focuses on sustainable gardening or farming, providing a diversity of plants and animals which interconnect and support each other. This greatly reduces the work involved.
For example, a food forest contains a wealth of different trees and shrubs which all support each others needs. The trees pull up water and nutrients and drop leaves and branches which mulch the soil. In hot climates they provide shade to the smaller tress that may otherwise be scorched by the sun.
Poultry can help clear a site for planting, while providing a natural source of fertiliser.
This wonderful self-supporting system devised by Bill Mollison, makes food production simple, easy and attainable by anyone who has even just a small back yard. The soil is nurtured, people are fed, wildlife is fed and sheltered. It seems to be the ideal model for the world’s recovery.
While this system may take a while to establish, problems are likely to be encountered along the way. Not so much as a result of the practice; more from problems inherited from the past.
For example, if the land had been heavily sprayed with synthetic chemicals, the residue will remain in the soil and cause problems for some years. Likewise, animals may be from poor breeding stock which have a tendency for various ailments. So many generations of farm animals have been kept under appallingly unhealthy conditions.
This is where homeopathy in permaculture can be successfully used.
Homeopathy is a complete system of health care for people, for animals, for plants.
Good homeopathic treatment is capable of reversing the effects of traumas, be they physical or psychological, be they recent or long past.
It can eliminate toxins, be they from our own life or from our ancestors.
And, of course, it is highly effective in treating infections, again, whether that is from a recent acute, a chronic from a past problem or an inherited tendency.
While homeopathy is most well known for its use on people, animals respond equally well. People have also been experimenting with treating plants with homeopathy, with great success. My own personal successes include saving a native tree that was dying from a boring insect infestation and putting caterpillars off the idea of eating my greens.
Other areas include helping plants to adapt to their new, and often foreign, location and treating the numerous diseases. Homeopathy works by improving the immunity of the patient. Immunity can be compromised in a variety of different ways, but once this is back to a vitality that supports life, the homeopathic treatment is no longer required.
If you are new to homeopathy, then professional help with your own health is a good way to start. Once you can see the results in yourself, and perhaps family members, then you have more confidence to learn how to help your animals and plants.
Homeopathy in permaculture makes perfect sense for those who care for their animals and plants and don’t want to address the problems with toxic chemicals.
Here at Two Legs and Four Homeopathic Health, both people and animals are treated, with support in garden or farm plant health.
