What is Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a system of medicine that has been used for over 200 years and can treat any disorder affecting any system and organ of the body at any age.

Homeopathy is the treatment of a disease with tiny doses of various natural substances that have been very highly diluted. Many of the substances that are used in homeopathic treatment would cause disease or illness if they were used at full strength in a healthy person. Homeopathy is based on the principle that the substance which is capable of causing a disease in the healthy will treat the disease in the sick, if it is used at the correct dilution. This idea of “like cures like” was developed by Samuel Hahnemann in 1796.

Holistic Treatment

"The highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle & permanent restorations of health...in the shortest, most reliable, and most harmless way..." ~ Samuel Hahnemann, Founder of Homeopathy

Homeopathy has experienced a revival in the last few decades in the natural living community, and has become the second largest treatment system in use in the world.

Individuals who use homeopathy to treat illness believe that it offers the following benefits:

  • Holistic Treatment: Homeopathic treatment is holistic and incorporates the entire body. This means that homeopathic practitioners are asking each individual about all of the symptoms that they are experiencing before they prescribe a remedy, and taking the time to provide a remedy that takes all symptoms into account, as well as any other treatment the individual is already undergoing.

  • Low Doses of Natural Ingredients: All ingredients used in homeopathic remedies are natural and are used in very low doses that are highly diluted. This makes it nearly impossible to overdose.

  • Treatment for Allergies: Homeopathic remedies exist to treat allergic reactions to a variety of substances, allowing practitioners to prescribe a remedy for individuals that are experiencing an allergic reaction to their environment, a medication, or another allergen

  • Pain Management: There are also homeopathic remedies to assist with pain. These remedies are non-addictive and will not cause patients to feel groggy or as if they are sedated, as some prescription pain medications will. Many patients opt for homeopathic remedies as a pain management alternative as they’re concerned about the potential for medications to be addictive over long periods of time.

Individuals who use homeopathic treatments are typically interested in holistic treatment of the symptoms that they are experiencing. These treatments provide an alternative to traditional medications.
