Homeopathy is a practice, which addresses the whole person rather than the disease. This 200-year-old approach is capable of stimulating your immune system and bringing you back to health safely and gently. Homeopathy recognizes that the whole person—body, mind, and spirit—is affected when one is ill.Homeopathy seeks to cure the totality, rather than focusing only on the illness or diseased organ. Homeopathic medicines, called “remedies,” are derived from the vegetable, mineral, and animal kingdoms. They are diluted, safe, gentle, non-toxic, and free of dangerous side effects.Homeopathic remedies are usually found in liquids or small pellets that you place under the tongue. This enables the remedy to bypass the digestive system and be easily absorbed into the bloodstream so that the cells most in need are assured of help.Because homeopathic remedies are able to penetrate to this level, it is best to sit down with a practitioner to determine which remedy would be most effective for you as an individual. Additionally, this often means that you only need to take the remedy in an infrequent manner, allowing the cells of your body time to return to a healthy and balanced state of functioning.
