Homeopathy is a form of alternative medicine started in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann based on the philosophy “like cures like”. Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic, minute doses of a substance. The substances have been studied and shown to produce certain symptoms in healthy individuals and therefore, according to the doctrine of “like cures like”, those remedies are given to a person with a disease that presents with similar symptoms, This is done in order to stimulate the body's innate sense to self heal.
Commonly treated conditions in both men and women include:
mental/ emotional issues
acute illness (cold, cough, pain, etc)
concerns during pregnancy
Remedies are prescribed on a case-by-case basis and are very individual depending on how disease uniquely manifests in that person. Once the body has healed itself and restored balance, the patient can then attain overall wellness.
