What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a holistic type of complimentary medicine. By holistic we mean a medical care system that views physical and mental and spiritual aspects of life as closely interconnected and equally important approaches to treatment. “It is a natural therapy that uses nano-doses of specially prepared remedies to stimulate the body to heal itself. It improves the body’s powers of recovery and strengthens resistance to illness. In addition, and just as important, effective homeopathic treatment increases energy and enhances the sense of well being and fulfillment.

Homeopathy has been used world wide by millions of people for over 200 years and it is currently the fastest growing complementary therapy in the USA.

Scientific studies have shown that homeopathy can help in a wide range of conditions—physical, mental and emotional. A recent review concluded that it was found to be effective in over 80% of well conducted studies, in conditions ranging from allergies to arthritis.

Homeopathic remedies are made by a carefully controlled process and are FDA approved. They are pleasant tasting and gentle enough for babies and children. Their use is also safe for pregnant and nursing mothers.”

The Law of Similars

"Like cures like," said German physician Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy. His theory: Natural substances that produce similar symptoms in a healthy person can cure those same symptoms in an ill person. In other words, a homeopathic medicine works when it is based on its similarity to the illness. For example, Allium cepa, a member of the onion family, is a common remedy for the tears and runny noses associated with respiratory allergies, including hay fever. (And we all know that peeling onions makes us cry.)

Homeopaths view symptoms as the body's attempt to restore itself to health. Their goal is not simply to control symptoms (as in allopathic medicine), but to cure the underlying problem that is their cause. Homeopathic remedies work not by suppressing symptoms, but rather by activating the body's own natural healing powers to address them.
