Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic medicines – known as “remedies” – are made from natural sources (e.g., plants, minerals), and are environmentally friendly and cruelty free. Homeopathy is based on a series of ideas developed in the 1790s by a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann. It is a gentle and natural system of healing that works with an individual’s body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve overall health.

A central principle of homeopathic medicine is that “like cures like” – that a substance that causes certain symptoms can also help to remove those symptoms. A second central principle is based on succession, a process of dilution and shaking. Many homeopathic remedies consist of substances that have been diluted many times in water until there is none, or almost none, of the original substance left. The principle being the greater the dilution the greater the potency. Homeopathy is used to address an extremely wide range of conditions, including physical conditions such as asthma and psychological conditions such as depression.
