What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is the fastest growing healthcare system in the world, according to the World Health Organization!  Homeopathy has been used for 200+ years to address disease.  This medicine system triggers the natural healing process.   Remedies stimulate immune response increasing resistance. It is a system of medicine based on treating the individual with highly diluted substances.  Doses of natural substances, called remedies, work on the principle of “like cures like”.   A substance that would cause symptoms in a healthy person is used to cure those same symptoms during illness. It can also be described as a method of treating disease with small amounts of remedies that, in large amounts in healthy people, produce symptoms similar to those being treated.  In this way a remedy is said to be “proven”.  For example, one remedy which might be used in a person suffering from insomnia is coffea, a remedy made from coffee.  Or in the case of a fever, the allopathic or modern western medical approach would indicate suppressing the fever through anti-fever drugs.  Homeopathy would administer a remedy that would produce fever in a healthy person.

Homeopathy recognizes that symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the patient who needs treatment not the disease.  Being energetic in nature, homeopathic remedies work by stimulating the body's own healing abilities which assists the system to clear itself of any expressions of imbalance.  This allows Homeopathy to address more than symptoms and assist an individual to resolve root causes for illness and disease.

Most sources agree that Homeopathy can be safely used alongside conventional medicines and will not interfere with the action of medicines prescribed by a doctor. However, some level of efficacy will be hindered if an individual is dependent on allopathic cures aimed at addressing illness in a method contrary to Homeopathy.  Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic, have no side effects and are safe even for pregnant women and babies when properly applied.
