Homeopathy is a medical art that is remarkably well suited for adjunctive use with depth psychotherapy. Homeopathic remedies can penetrate into the psyche and catalyze change on the level of the psychoid, affecting mind, body, and spirit, with a capacity to gently promote deep healing that is categorically different from what we can expect from conventional psychotropic medications.
The notion of the psychoid is one of Jung’s innumerable contributions to our understanding of human experience. The domain of the psychoid is the imponderable dimension of our experience where material and non- material reality, matter and spirit, interpenetrate and intertwine, where the archetypes reside, from which the complexes arise, and where the sequelae of trauma are woven into our psyches to lodge and persist. It is on this level of the organism that changes must occur for deep healing to unfold, and it is on this level that homeopathic remedies effect transformation in the organism.
