Science of Natural Medicine

What's Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a science of natural medicine that was discovered almost 200 years ago. its principle is quite simple. It is stated “like cures like”, meaning that a substance that will cause a set of symptoms when administered in a large dose, will remove those same symptoms in a minute or small dose. Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a medical doctor and pharmacist, did the initial research in this field. He insisted that the homeopath take a detailed case history so that the totality of symptoms were recorded. These symptoms included not only physical complaints, but also emotional and spiritual issues as well. He believed that in order to help a person become well again you must work with the whole person, not simply suppress the symptoms. He also advocated rest, good health hygiene, exercise, and healthy eating as important components to health. From a holistic viewpoint, your symptoms are signs which your body is trying to give to let you know that something is out of balance. Homeopathy attempts to assist your body in removing the stressors without suppressing the symptoms. It is extremely safe because homeopathic agents are greatly diluted. In homeopathy, remedies were initially made from animal, vegetable or mineral organic. It is thought that  this imprint acts to simulate the body’s own natural defenses too detoxify and strengthen the body’s organ systems. Today there are many homeopathic which are made from modern chemicals so as to assist the body in removing these chemicals form it. Many times, homeopathic are combined into a single formula to create a desired effect on the body.
