Homeopathy is a medical system based on the principle that “like cures like”, or the belief that the body can cure itself. This practice is often done using small amounts of natural substances like plants and minerals, as they can often stimulate the healing process.
An example of “like cures like” is the homeopathic remedy for allergies using red onions because they make your eyes water. Homeopaths weaken the ingredients in the treatment by adding water or alcohol in order to lower the dose.
By undergoing this treatment, a person is restored to a sense of health and well-being when their body is given all required elements to restore their physical, emotional, and mental health. This allows them to contribute fully to their own lives and that of their community.
Homeopathy is a very individualized modality but very effective when remedies are chosen for the whole of the individual. It is used for a wide variety of health issues, including some chronic illnesses:
• Chronic fatigue syndrome
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Irritable bowel syndrome
• Premenstrual syndrome
Your first session requires 90 minutes in order to complete a full and complete health history. The session focuses on you as a whole, not just on your symptoms, which is generally the end result of the issue but not the cause itself.
Please bring all medicines, vitamins, and supplements you are currently taking and any notes relating to your health concerns.
