Frequently Asked Questions about
"Teach Me Health & Homeopathy"

No. This is not a Christian worldview or religious curriculum. Homeopathy is a form of natural medicine. Just as traditional/conventional medicine is not confused with religion, homeopathy should not be either. As outlined throughout the Teach Me Health and Homeopathy curriculum, homeopathic medicine is founded upon science and is rooted in the first principle of science: observation. While the author is personally Christian, our intention is to speak from the heart in a positive and inviting way. We love working with and honor good people that come from all walks of life, which is why our focus group was made up of very diverse individuals. we hope that this curriculum gives you this welcoming impression. Any family, regardless of their background, can enjoy this wonderful curriculum.

A: This is an important question. None of my educational materials cover chronic conditions. Both Teach Me Health and Homeopathy curriculums (the version for grades 1-12 as well as the Pre-K/Kindergarten Primer) only focus on acute care, centered around the topic of accidents. Also, keep in mind that sometimes a chronic condition masquerades as an acute (for example, a cough may come up suddenly and appear to be acute, but if this is a recurrent problem, then it is actually an acute manifestation of a chronic problem). If you are seeking homeopathy for a chronic condition, you should seek help from a qualified and well-trained homeopath. For more information about this topic, you can watch a discussion I had with Denise Straiges, the Executive Director of the Academy of Homeopathy Education, whose school has endorsed my curriculums. As I stated in the video, because I am not a homeopath, it was important to me that a proper credentialed institution reviewed and endorsed this curriculum. Here is my interview with Denise Straiges, the Executive Director of the Academy of Homeopathy Education.

A: Teach Me Health and Homeopathy takes an interactive approach to learning using multimedia and discussion. As of this printing, there is no other literature-based curriculum that the author knows of that specifically teaches entire families about homeopathy. While there are science or health-related courses for students and teens, these are unfortunately often created with meaningless activities, readings that lack facts or details, or storylines that are not rich and engaging to youth. The special program developed in this curriculum sponsors an “atmosphere, discipline, [and a] life of learning,” as advocated by Charlotte Mason.

A: First, welcome! Listening to Andrew Pudewa’s speech “Nurturing Competent Communicators” would be my first recommendation.

A: The vast majority of parents who homeschool (or perhaps summer school, if your student goes to public school) incorporate various teaching methods in their instruction. Most student-centered education philosophies such as Waldorf, Charlotte Mason, and Montessori also utilize story as a vehicle for teaching. This curriculum represents a mixture of these methods and also incorporates the classical method. It is perfect for applications in Montessori and Waldorf settings with little, if any, adaptation.

A: Many families are interested in learning about homeopathy and the principles of natural health, but they themselves know little about it. Fear not! This curriculum is your launchpad into homeopathy and the foundational principles of natural medicine. This curriculum will likely provide new information, even to parents who know a lot about homeopathy. Becoming a co-learner with your family is one of the best ways to teach. These books will wrap you together in the work of learning. Together, with your newfound enlightenment, homeopathy will come to life in your home. Each of the three books in this curriculum will stimulate the knowledge you thirst for, providing a catalyst for your family to develop a culture of healing.

A: Remember that children are always watching and learning from you. You are encouraged to talk about homeopathic remedies when you employ them. Don’t just give remedies to children if they need them. Instead, ask them or their siblings, “What remedy does she need?” If someone calls or comes over with a homeopathy-related question, ask the kids to think through the answers before just telling them what you selected. Tell them stories of cases that you handled: “My friend Anna called today. Her daughter was sick. Here were her symptoms. What remedy do you think matches?” If they are younger, you can list out the top two or three remedies, look them up, and discuss. Learning is everywhere. Make time to incorporate thinking, consideration, and conversation into your parenting style.

A: I have been through many different diets as I was figuring out what worked best for my body. For a number of years I was vegan, then later vegetarian, and then, due to my chronic pain, I switched to paleo, then autoimmune paleo. Thanks to homeopathy, I was able to move past many of my food intolerances. The place at which I arrived, that works best for me, is the real foods diet based on many of the principles of the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF). Because this curriculum is, in many ways, a reflection of my own journey, it includes a number of WAPF food and lifestyle principles. If this is not the diet that works best for you, that’s okay! Talk to your children about the importance of finding the best diet for themselves and share with them your views on the foods you eat. The most important message in this curriculum is that of empowering oneself to own one’s health choices.

A: Homeopathy is a form of natural medicine. Just as traditional/conventional medicine is not confused with religion, homeopathy should not be either. As outlined throughout my Teach Me Health and Homeopathy curriculum, homeopathic medicine is founded upon science and is rooted in the first principle of science: observation. When one applies a Christian lens to homeopathic medicine, you will find that the system is in harmony with Christian beliefs, perhaps more so than conventional medicine, because—similar to repentance—homeopathic medicine understands that our bodies were made to heal and become whole, both physically and emotionally. Homeopathy is and was beloved by Christians like Mother Teresa among many other Christians as well as those who are not Christian. Homeopathy is used by people from various walks of life for one reason: It works! Additionally, it may be helpful to know that the father of homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann, was a person of deep Christian faith who said that our ability to heal was a “priceless gift of God to man” [1] and always gave glory to God for his discoveries. During his final days of life, Hahnemann’s wife—in an effort to comfort him and alleviate his sufferings—said, “Surely some mitigation of suffering is due to you [Hahnemann] who have alleviated the sufferings of so many.” Hahnemann’s final words before passing were: “Every man on earth works as God gives him strength … but no man has claim at the judgement Seat of God. God owes me nothing. I owe him much—yea all.”

Another quote from Samuel Hahnemann, that I find both inspiring and I note his reference to the Lord is as follows: 

“Our art requires no political lever, no worldly decorations in order to become something. It grows gradually, at first unrecognized, surrounded as it were by all manner of weeds which luxuriate around it, from an insignificant acorn to a sapling, soon its summit will overtop the rank weeds. Patience! It is striking deep its roots into the earth, it is increasing in strength imperceptibly but all the more surely and will in its own time grow into an oak of God, which no longer is shaken by storms, spreads out its branches into all regions that suffering mankind may be healed under its beneficent shade.”

No, it is not. Homeopathy is a form of natural medicine. Just as traditional/conventional medicine is not confused with religion, homeopathy should not be either. As outlined throughout my Teach Me Health and Homeopathy curriculum, homeopathic medicine is founded upon science and is rooted in the first principle of science: observation. While this curriculum is multidisciplinary with opportunities for critical thinking, writing, art, debate, science experiments, and more, if you need to select one ‘category’ for this curriculum, we recommend placing under “Science/Health.”
