What is homeopathy

"Homeopathy¬Ö.cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment and is beyond doubt a safer, more economical and complete medical science" -Mahatma Gandhi


Homeopathy is a natural, therapeutic, well-established system of medicine and healing recognized around the world for its gentleness and extreme effectiveness. Homeopathy was derived from the Greek word "homoeos" meaning "like" or"similar" and "pathos" meaning "suffering" or "disease".

Homeopathic medicine was founded on one law of nature, introduced by a German physician,Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the 19th century. It is a therapy based on the practice of treating "likes with likes" Homeopathy is concerned with the treatment of the whole person as an individual rather than treating the disease alone. The focus of Homeopathy is to stabilize an individual through the introduction of natural substances, designed to resonate with the body in the same way it is deemed to be out of balance. For this reason people with same disease may often be treated with different remedies. It is used effectively in conjunction with other therapies such as allopathy, dental, nutrition, chiropractic, acupuncture and homotoxicology. It plays a significant role in both preventative and curative medicine.


No !!!. Homeopathy encourages the body to continue healing in a way similar to its own initial reaction or disturbance. The process of serial dilution and succussion which these medications undergo during the time of preparation at the Homeopathic Pharmacy renders them safe, non-toxic, yet therapeutic. The diluted remedies used will not result in toxic or allergic problems. It has been noted that the symptoms of an illness can sometimes appear worse for 3 to 7 days. This is called a"healing reaction" or "homeopathic aggravation" after a remedy has been taken. This is a normal homeopathic medicine and it is a sign that a person's body has begun reacting positively to the medicine and that the healing process has begun. However, most patient do not feel anything other than overwhelming sense of well-being.


Homeopathy remedies work as quickly if not faster than conventional medicines especially in most acute ailments whether they are infectious or non-infectious. In chronic disorders, it is necessary to provide in-depth treatment for a person's body to avoid relapses, for this reason, the treatment can be stretched over a period of weeks. The duration of treatment for chronic problems is directly proportional to the length of time a person has suffered from the disorder, the nature of the disorder, inherent reaction of an individual to the disease. The great advantage of homeopathic medicine is that it works safely, and effectively to heal the whole body. These medications are hypo-molecular therefore they cannot cause any harmful effect when used with other prescriptions.
