Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic remedies are designed to gently stimulate the bodies own ability to heal itself. They were first discovered first by a German medical doctor in the 19th century. Homeopathy is a form of biological medicine that is commonly used in most of Europe, Africa, Australia, and India, and is becoming widely accepted in North America. The homeopathic remedies are prescribed to individuals with disease symptoms on the principle of ‘like cures like’. They contain tiny doses of substances that, if a healthy person were to take in large doses, would cause the same disease symptoms. However, since they are prescribed to someone already with the disease symptoms, and in such tiny amounts, they instead stimulate the bodies own defense systems to cure itself of the disease. Hence, ‘like cures like’.

The strength of homeopathic remedies is that they encourage the body’s natural ability to heal itself and that it is safe for adults and children. These remedies are particularly safe and effective for use with children and infants. Talk to your naturopathic doctor to see if homeopathy would be beneficial as part of your course of treatment
