Homeopathy is a safe, natural, non-toxic form of medicine that can be powerful in treating a variety of illnesses.

Started approximately 200 years ago by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, homeopathy, also called homeopathic medicine,  is a system of healing that has been studied primarily in Europe and India throughout the years, with a remarkable safety record. They are natural medicines and considered by many as an excellent first line of defense for common ailments.

The Principle of "Like Cures Like"

Homeopathy is founded on the principle, "like cures like" and works on a deeper level than pharmaceutical medicines to help the body heal itself. Homeopathy can treat most illnesses, from typical childhood sickness to allergies and chronic disease with little to no side effects. Homeopathic medicines are used to treat many common health conditions such as menopause, allergies, coughs, PMS, colds, flu, stress, arthritis, muscle pain, and more.

Homeopathic medicines are therapeutically active micro-doses of plants, minerals, and biological substances. Homeopathic medicines have been regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 1938. Ingredients must be listed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) or generally accepted as homeopathic medicine under the general principles of homeopathy to ensure that homeopathic medicines adhere to specific standards.

Treating the Whole Person

Classical homeopathy involves a lengthy, detailed patient history. The patient describes everything from current symptoms and past medical history to personal emotions and family dynamics. The practitioner studies the intake and compares the details of the case to characteristics of different homeopathic remedies, often looking for the most similar remedy, which becomes the constitutional remedy for the patient.

As with an integrative medical approach, classical homeopathy views the whole person. All symptoms are taken into account, the entire case is thoroughly reviewed, and one or more remedy will be carefully selected. Improvement is evaluated periodically, and adjustments to the remedy(ies) are made as needed.

Each case and treatment plan is individualized. For some, homeopathic remedies are appropriate, which may be alternated with other remedies, therapies, and clinical assessments  incorporated into the treatment plan. Depending on the individual's case,  traditional therapies,  botanical remedies, lifestyle changes, nutritional supplements, and lab work may be incorporated into the treatment plan.

Homeopathy is an energetic or regulating therapy which can have a profound effect on healing.
