Drainage is the process of detoxifying the body using specific homeopathic remedies to discharge the toxic accumulations, treat the miasm or cause, tonify the Chi to avoid a healing crisis and then rebuild using nutritional support, constitutional remedies, organo and enzyme therapy and, finally, psychological healing to address emotional issues.
Disease is a process which starts with excretion of toxins. Our body is designed to be an auto-regulating, self-healing mechanism. But what we do with modern technology, the foods we eat, the poisons we put on and the stuff we put in our water, we block the enzyme systems. If the material is not expelled, it will result in deposition of toxins in cells, tissues and organs, which eventually leads to degeneration and necrosis.
As practitioners, we need to move the client in the direction of healing using biological therapies, and not in the direction of toxic therapies. Suppressing symptoms will force the condition into a deeper pathology.
Drainage works with body function, not symptoms. It is truly a Complementary Medicine as it can be used with allopathic medicine. The protocols, which generally run for 6-12 weeks, are meant to move the person in the direction of healing. Drainage removes the blockages, which prevent the body from healing itself.
When we use drainage, we are going from the more superficial layers deeper into the body; from outside the cell to inside the cell. Homeopathic remedies in varying potencies, including Gemmotherapies, cell salts, organotherapies, nosodes, oliotherapies, single and complex remedies, work at the various levels.
Numerous therapeutic modalities have an effect at different levels as well. Mechanical therapies for detoxification include fasting, colonics, manipulation, and physiotherapy. Chemically you have enzymes, herbs, vitamins, minerals, and chelation. Energetic methods include laying on of hands, acupuncture, and homeopathy. Unfortunately, the chemical/herbal therapy process does not go deep enough. It gets material up to the extra cellular level only. The energetic modalities get the toxic material out of the intracellular level and eliminate it through the opened drainage routes.
The Homeopathic combinations used are energetic, moving the Chi, and working through the different stages of the disease process. Drainage has been used extensively in Europe for 40 years, and is on the cutting edge of therapy in North America.
