About Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a healing therapy that is over 200 years old. It was discovered in Europe and quickly became popular in the United States. Homeopathy is commonly used today by medical doctors in many European countries. The Royal Family in England has used and endorsed Homeopathy for generations. Today in the United States, homeopathy has become more widely used by the health care consumer and is beginning to get the research attention it deserves from the scientific community.

Homeopathy is the easiest treatment to take. There are no capsules to swallow. It is usually given in little sugar pills or in water with virtually no taste. For this reason, homeopathy is a great treatment for children, since there are few obstacles for getting them to take it. In addition, Homeopathy does not interfere or interact with medications so it is safe for people who are already being treated for a health issue.

Homeopathic medicines (also known as homeopathic remedies) are made differently than other natural remedies. They are made by creating a very diluted solution of a plant, mineral, animal, chemical or food substance. The remedies come in many dilutions and unlike conventional drugs, it is thought that the more dilute the solution the more powerful the effect. Scientists are not certain how homeopathy works. Some think that it works similar to a vaccine: give a small amount of a substance to help promote cure. In any event, it has been shown to be a valuable tool.

Homeopathy has a wide range of uses. It can be very effective in treating acute conditions, such as colds, flu, bronchitis, urinary tract infections, food poisoning, etc. It also shows tremendous value in treating chronic conditions and mood disorders, phobias, etc.

Naturopathic Doctors are the only doctors who are trained in the use of homeopathy in their medical education. Let us help you use this therapy to help you feel your best.
