Minimum Dose, Maximum Effect
Ephraim Lansky, M.D.

Tele-Homeo is a fusion of telemedicine and classical homeopathy.  The method evolved organically over the past decades, with technology progressing from plain old telephone service, to simple picture phones that could transmit single images like a fax machine, and on to the full digital era, and Zoom.

Dr Lansky has rich and varied experience connecting classical homeopathy to the remote setting.  He was one of the first physicians worldwide to practice classical homeopathic telephone consultations back in the late 1980’s.  Dr Lansky received his homeopathic education first through courses offered in Washington, DC by the National Center of Homeopathy, and later over a ten year period with Professor George Vithoulkas at the Athenian School of Homeopathic Medicine in Alonissos, Greece.  Dr Lansky received his M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia, and a Ph.D. in Pharmacognosy (medicinal plants pharmacology) from Leiden University in Holland. He is a member of the American Institute of Homeopathy, the oldest medical association in the United States, and the American Telemedical Association. He holds a permanent license to practice medicine in Israel and is also licensed in Israel as a medical hypnotherapist. Dr Lansky has over 36 years experience practicing classical homeopathy.

FAQ. Frequently Asked Questions

It is a method of prescribing minimum doses of substances to treat disease or maintain health that is based upon a “law of similars,” that “like cures like.”
They are the most prescribed medicinal products at the time that homeopathy was developed in the 1800’s. The substances include remedies of herbal (~70%), mineral (~20%), or animal (~10%) origin. Homeopathic remedies may also be produced from any modern drug, from immaterial energies like X-ray or electricity, from chemicals or gases, and from disease-associated causative factors (nosodes).
Yes. Homeopathy can be used either as a stand-alone treatment, or in addition to conventional medications. However, the prescribing style (potencies and schedule) will vary in the presence or absence of other medicines.
Common conditions successfully ameliorated by correct classical homeopathic prescribing encompass infectious diseases and their aftermath, skin issues, imparied digestion, anxiety, depression, sleeping, behavior, or learning problems, and especially, the “strange, rare, and peculiar.”
No, but remedies may cause “aggravations” in existing conditions or mild return of previously existing conditions, prior to the clinical improvement that is sought.
Remedies are prescribed based upon a detailed interview in which the relevant symptoms and complaints and their history are reported from the patient’s point of view. In cases where that is not possible, a caretaker or relative may be interviewed instead.
Pharmacies that specialize in homeopathic remedies exist throughout many parts of the world including North and South America, Europe, India, and Israel and will in most cases be able to fill a homeopathic prescription. Reliable remedies may even be found on Amazon and Ebay. Depending on the individual prescription the remedy may be taken either just once, infrequently, or on a regular basis.
The remedies are tasteless, but are typically embedded into lactose globules, which taste like sugar.
In very acute cases, the remedy can act within minutes or even seconds. In chronic cases, the action usually occurs over weeks or months.
Homeopathic remedies may be very effective and are safe if properly prescribed for pregnant women and also for lactating mothers. In disorders of nursing babies, homeopathic remedies given to the mother frequently benefit infants through mother’s milk.
Yes, so long as the physician or therapist providing the acupuncture or similar is in agreement. As with the case of regular medications, frequency and potency of the homeopathic remedies may need to be adjusted. Such treatments in process should be reported at the initial interview.
Yes. The one may well complement and synergize with the other.
Active imagination uses meditation or hypnosis to amplify and process images from dreams. Again, like other similar approaches, active imagination may synergize with classical homeopathy.
Classical homeopathy as expounded by homeopathy’s founder, Samuel Hahnemann in the 19th century, employs single medicines to treat a case, and never combines different homeopathic remedies at the same time. So-called “clinical homeopathy” uses mixtures of different remedies at the same time which are prescribed according to a different understanding.
