In this excerpt, Dr. Murphy talks about how a synergy of homeopathy, internal exercise, and a simple diet can cultivate vitality by tithing to the temple.
This podcast is an excerpt from the “Geriatrics & Homeopathy” lecture by Dr. Robin Murphy, ND
Dr. Murphy's lecture, Geriatrics & Homeopathy, discusses health and longevity, the aging process, and geriatric topics as well as reviewing the vital force, vital energy, and its relation to case taking and prescribing.
The full Geriatrics & Homeopathy lecture is available for streaming access.
[Let me] quickly outline the benefits that homeopathy can do for the aging process.
There's a word we call synergy. And synergy was developed by the physicists when they found that certain metal alloys like copper plus iron, I don't know the example, but if you put those together, they're stronger than copper, iron by themselves. [If] one has, an example, 100 tensile strength units copper, and the other one has iron – has 50 tensile strength, and you put them together and you get 250 tensile strength. [The] physicist says this is not mathematically possible. It's impossible. You should have 150 strength with combining those two metals, but it became stronger. Now here's the idea. With homeopathy, some internal exercises and a simple diet, you will get a synergistic effect. They will all work toward the same goal. And that goal is to cultivate vitality.
Okay. And they're all simple and they're all natural. Homeopathy can help you get back the vitality that you have lost or even at the same time. Then you start on a longevity program, you see, and then the two together will have a synergistic effect. Not only will you feel well, but just by doing half hour. What do they call it? Tithing. You know the word tithing. Tithing to the temple. This is the temple, right? We don't tithe it. Tithing is 10%, 10% tithing to us would be 2.4 hours a day that we have to put into cultivating our health. I don't put in 2.4 hours a day, which is 10% to 24 hours, but we have to at least put in an hour. You may have to do some breathing for 15 minutes or some walking for a half hour in the morning and maybe do some breathing at night and you put in something. But we have to do some tithing to the temple. If we don't, the temple starts going into disorder. Okay. So, a lot of the analogies in our religious scriptures, when they say temple and Church, a lot of times they're meaning the body and the care of the body. There’re different ways of looking at that because if we don't take good care of what's been given to us, that's pretty arrogant. That's pretty out of line with our nature. Okay. So, we have to do that. You say, I don't wake up in the morning, there's no time and this and that, and you wake up a half hour earlier. Okay. If you don't do that and you don't cultivate that, then you can't expect health. If you don't plant the carrots and corn, how are you going to get carrots and corn to eat three months later? It's the same with our health. If we don't put something in it, time, energy and attention to our body, it won't stay healthy. In the old days, our lifestyle did that for us. Today we have to consciously do it.
Yes. Every day. It should be like brushing your teeth. Don't become fanatical. If you miss a day or you're traveling no big deal. But once it's a habit and you start reaping the benefits from the habit, you will do it automatically and enjoy it. See, at first it may be a little struggle.
Student references doing it every other day.
Well then, you'll start going back a little.
