What is Homeopathy & How can it Help?

Homeopathy is a medical system based on the belief that the body can cure itself. Those who practice it use tiny amounts of natural substances, like plants and minerals. A basic belief behind homeopathy is “like cures like.” In other words, something that brings on symptoms in a healthy person can -- in a very small dose -- treat an illness with similar symptoms. This is meant to trigger the body’s natural defenses.

What are Homeopathic Remedies?

Homeopathic remedies are made from infinitesimal amounts of substances from the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms and there are over 3,000 known remedies available. Homeopathic remedies have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration since 1939 and are manufactured in strict accordance with the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States and Drug Manufacturing Practices.

Types Of Homeopathy: 
Classical Homeopathy

 

Classical homeopathy is a holistic therapy developed over 200 years ago by the German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. Based on the “Law of Similars” -  the principle that cures like - homeopathy is a time-tested and well-respected natural healing system throughout the world.

 

Classical homeopathy most closely matches the individual’s symptoms and personality with the appropriate homeopathic remedy, stimulating the body’s innate healing response. The use of a single remedy at a time is a foundational principle of this approach.

Contemporary Homeopathy

Contemporary homeopathy differs from Classical in that more than one homeopathic remedy is used at a time which creates a synergistic effect. This combination approach provides a more comprehensive remedy that many practitioners find essential to supporting balance within the body.

Gemmotherapy

A branch of phytotherapy that uses the embryological tissues of plants, gemmotherapy is a modern homeopathic method of biotherapeutic drainage using the extracts of plants. The raw material of the buds, emerging shoots, seeds, rootlets and saps is taken at the peak time of the plant’s annual germination, throughout the period of cellular division and plant growth. During this stage plants contain the highest concentration of active growth factor hormones, auxins, and gibberellins. These specific hormonal agents contain valuable informative matter utilized for the drainage of various organs and tissues at the cellular level. The plant material is macerated and then made into tinctures for easy ingestion.
