What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy recognizes the connection between the mind and body. Homeopathy always takes into consideration the person's physical, mental and emotional expressions of a person.
A Homeopathic remedy strengthens the vital force and brings everything back into balance. Our vital force is always at work to keep our bodies in balance. Homeopathic remedies are used to enhance the power of the body to heal itself.
Homeopathy treats the mental and emotional aspects of a person so that the physical body can be brought back into balance. It can also be used preventatively by strengthening a person's overall vitality. This can allow a person to live to the fullest, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
For over 200 years homeopaths have consistently applied the same laws and principles. Thousands of cases document the success and efficacy of homeopathy. Homeopathy is a safe and effective system of western medicine used by an estimated 500 million people worldwide. Homeopathic remedies are used safely for people in all stages of life including infants, children, pregnant women, and the elderly and produce no side-effects or interaction with pharmaceutical or herbal medications.
How does Homeopathy differ from conventional medicine?
Conventional medicine treats the symptoms only, such as a cough by suppressing it with various means. Conventional medicine therefore, tries to to control the illness (symptoms) through the regular use of medicinal substances. Once these medicines are stopped, the symptoms (illness) return. Homeopathy takes the cough as well as other symptoms and finds a remedy that will stimulate the ill body to restore itself to health.
Homeopathy is a scientific method of medicine developed by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), based on several eternal laws of nature. Like cures like or the Law of Similars. A simple example: you have food poisoning and another poison, Arsenic, will bring a speedy recovery (in highly diluted homeopathic doses, of course). In classical homeopathy, remedies are administered one at a time rather than in mixtures. Most remedies do not possess even one molecule of the original substance.
