A gentle, deeply-healing system of medicine founded by the visionary genius Samuel Hahnemann in the early 19th century, homeopathy uses healing substances so dilute that they do not cause side effects like conventional pharmaceuticals, which can suppress symptoms that can later reoccur (often on a deeper level). Homeopathy cures from the inside out. It removes the underlying emotional or mental stress of chronic disease first, then moves the illness out of the body. Homeopathy does not cause side effects and even enhances the quality of life as it heals.
Founded on unfailing scientific laws, homeopathy has stood the test of time for nearly 200 years. It is based on the same paradigm as acupuncture--that of chi or vital energy. Homeopathy is energy medicine, working with the body's own healing energy to strengthen it, using remedies that are safe, non-toxic and totally individualized to the patient for both acute and chronic illnesses.
Homeopathy treats the whole person: emotional, mental and spiritual as well as physical. The well-chosen homeopathic remedy brings about a profound sense of well-being before it even begins to cure the symptoms. And the search for the right remedy for a chronic disease begins with a detailed inquiry by a Homeopath into the emotional or mental trauma that might have triggered it.
While conventional or allopathic medicine (traditional western medicine) continues in a devastating financial crisis with nearly 50 million Americans lacking health insurance, Homeopathy can offer health care which is both effective and extremely economical. The homeopathic approach is sensible, economical and effective. A person's individual healing energy effects the cure. It does not create resistance but uses extremely small doses of natural substances to stimulate the body's innate healing powers. Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic and non-addictive. By treating benign acute incidents or illnesses, patients can save thousands of dollars and contribute greatly to their own well being and healing The ultimate goal of Homeopathy is to help you live to your fullest capacity, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, socially, as well as physically.
