Homeopathy is a therapeutic method that uses infinitesimally small doses of natural substances such as plants or minerals. They are safe and non toxic, with no known drug interactions. They are essentially a signal that stimulates the body’s healing reaction.
It treats according to the principle of “Like cures like”. For example, a substance that causes a fever if taken in large doses will cure a fever in minute doses.
Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, is considered the Father of Modern Homeopathy. Although its principles were known and practiced long before his time, Hahnemann devoted much of his life to categorizing and proving many many remedies. His approach is referred to now as Classical Homeopathy.
Over the past 60 years his followers have developed a new branch of the science, known as Complex Homeopathy. While Classical Homeopathy aims for a single precise remedy, Complex Homeopathy blends many remedies and potencies in a highly synergistic fashion. This is the method I use in my clinic.
The remedies are very safe and easy for the body to accommodate. They are in micro doses so dilute that it is believed to provide an electromagnetic signal which stimulates the body to heal in specific ways.
Homeopathy is one of the most powerful and valuable tools we have for healing in today’s world.
