Homeopathic medicine works on the philosophy that the body can cure itself if given the opportunity and that we can boost our health by triggering the body’s natural healing responses to an illness or irritant. Homeopathic medicine is safe, non-invasive, and free of harmful chemicals and treatments.
Operating on the principle that “like cures like,” homeopathic medicine treats people very differently than traditional medicine. In homeopathic medicine, a substance or irritant may cause illness in a healthy person, but a minuscule dose of the same substance triggers the body’s natural healing response. As a result, the body becomes mobilized to respond to and heal from this illness.
For example, allergy treatment in homeopathic medicine often involves exposing people to very tiny amounts of the material that triggers the allergic reaction. While traditional medicine would quell the body’s own natural responses with medication, homeopathy encourages the body to use its own immune system to respond to the illness naturally.
In homeopathic medicine, symptoms of illness are not a thing to get rid of but signs of an underlying imbalance or issue. Treating the symptoms with medications will not treat the underlying causes. However, homeopathic medicine can help the body learn how to manage its exposure to the agent causing the symptoms.
Homeopathic medicine can treat conditions including:
Instead of treating the symptoms of these conditions with medication and covering up the core issues, homeopathic medicine will evaluate the entire person, including mind, body, and spirit. Wherever a doctor finds signs that the body is struggling to respond to an illness or irritant, they will apply a minimum dose of that irritant to prompt the body to mobilize and heal.
You can expect that you will feel more balanced and healthier, especially after a full consultation and evaluation. For many people, homeopathic medicine answers questions that traditional medicine cannot. Other people have attempted to heal themselves with traditional medications with no success. These people may see results from homeopathy. However, people should never stop taking their traditional medications without careful management by the prescriber.
Because homeopathic medicine uses only the smallest amount of a substance necessary to trigger the body’s response, homeopathic treatments have no side effects most of the time. Unlike traditional medicine, homeopathy only uses tiny doses and lets the body do its own healing and rebalancing.
