What is Homeopathy?

Classical Homeopathy is a system of healing that stimulates the body’s innate ability to restore mental, emotional, and physical well being. It is a very individualized approach to health and disease, treating each person as a whole. Classical Homeopathy is based on the premise that disease is a process that affects the whole person. Conventional medicine treats individual symptoms of the disease which is only a part of the whole. Homeopathic medicines (called remedies) are taken in small, non toxic doses to treat the person rather than the symptoms or disease. The symptoms of a disease will lead to the correct remedy for each person. The basic idea is that homeopathic remedies stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes, causing a gentle and safe restoration to health. The disease resolves naturally as the person recovers their health.


What Does Homeopathy Address?

Homeopathy specializes in chronic conditions — for example, hormonal issues, stress, allergies, skin problems, asthma, headaches, auto-immune issues, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, anxiety and depression.

Homeopathy is useful for childhood ailments such as: chronic ear infections, hyperactivity, bed wetting, teething, and sleep issues. Traumas could include: sprains, strained muscles, bruising, bee stings, insect bites, burns, sunburn, wounds, first aid, before or after surgery. Acute situations could be: coughs, colds, fever, flu, sinus infections, sore throat.

Homeopathy does not use any special diets or costly herbs or supplements.  We only use homeopathic remedies — small white pills that are dissolved under the tongue.  These are inexpensive, safe, and available over the counter.

There are about 2,500 remedies in use today.  They have been researched and documented meticulously for 200 years, with new ones being discovered every day.  And so modern homeopaths have at their disposal literally centuries of knowledge to draw on.

On the physical level, Homeopathy has an excellent track record with:

  • Allergies
  • Headaches, especially Migraines
  • Skin Conditions
  • Auto-Immune Problems
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Chronic Pain and Discomfort
  • Women’s Medicine
  • Arthritis and Injuries
  • Side Effects of Necessary Medications (for example, HIV Drugs and Chemotherapy)
  • Hard-to-define illnesses that, while very real, have no specific medical diagnosis.

On the mental and emotional side, Homeopathy has a 200-year history of treating:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety and Panic
  • Grief and Shock
  • Post-Traumatic Stress
  • Nervous Tics

How does Homeopathy work?

Homeopathic medicines are prescribed in minute homeopathic doses called “remedies”. This small dosage makes these substances safe and effective. Remedies are made from plant, animal, and mineral substances. They are prepared in a scientific process of diluting and shaking called “potentizing”, making them stronger. Most remedies are administered as pellets or liquid.
