Homeopathy was developed by a German physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, in the late 1700s, and has been practiced around the world continuously since that time. Homeopathy is used widely in numerous countries, including India, Mexico, Israel, Canada, USA, and many countries in the European Union.
The practice of homeopathy is based on scientific principles, including the “principle of similars,” whereby patients are treated with medicines selected specifically for their symptoms and dispositions.
Homeopathy can be used to safely and effectively treat many acute and chronic conditions in children and adults, such as ear infections, viral illnesses (including flu), teething, behavior disturbances, vomiting and diarrhea, sinus problems, arthritis, sleep problems and more.
Homeopathy assists the body to heal and balance itself by stimulating the body’s own natural defense mechanisms and healing capacities.
Homeopathic medicines are developed in experiments called “provings,” and are prepared in a manner that removes the toxicity often found in conventional pharmaceuticals. It is virtually free of side effects and negative interactions with other treatment modalities. Homeopathy can be used alone or in concert with supplements, acupuncture, herbs, chiropractic, conventional medicine, and more.
Homeopathy is safe for babies, children, pregnant women, nursing mothers, and the elderly. It can also be safely and effectively used for animals (livestock, pets, and wild animals).
