How Homeopathy Works
Homeopathy is a more than 200-year-old system of western medicine. Its scientific, highly systematic principles are based in the writings of historical thinkers such as Hippocrates, Paracelsus, and Goethe. They were adapted into homeopathy in the late 1700s by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician and chemist. Disillusioned by the bloodletting and crude western medicine practices of his time, he sought to create a system of healing that would be gentle and effective, and work with, rather than against, the body’s innate healing capacity.
Homeopathic treatment can be used as an alternative or complement to conventional medical treatment. In contrast to conventional medicine, homeopathy believes disease symptoms are not confined to a particular body part or system, but signal an imbalance in the overall mental, emotional, and physical body. After taking an extended time with new clients on intake, classical homeopathic practitioners select a single remedy from over 4,000 remedies created from the plant, mineral, or animal kingdoms. This remedy is chosen to match the total state you present. Homeopathic remedies act to stimulate your body’s vital force or vitality, which in turn gradually restores all body systems back to overall balance and health. In follow-up appointments, scheduled every 4-6 weeks initially, we assess the effects of the remedy over time and determine the frequency and potency of remedy doses to best support and strengthen your healing process.
We choose one remedy to match the unique individual state of you.
