Homeopathy is a gentle, safe, and natural system of medicine that works with your body natural healing ability to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health. It is extremely safe to use, even with very small children, pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers and pets.
Homeopathy has none of the side effects of many traditional medications, is very affordable, is made from natural substances, and is FDA regulated.
Homeopathy is used to treat chronic conditions, like anxiety, asthma, depression, autism, and arthritis as well as acute illnesses, like colds, ear infections, migraines, and sore throats.
The word homeopathy is derived from the Greek words Homeos (“similar”) and Pathos (“suffering”), and is based on a rule of nature called the Law of Similars. This law states that "like cures like," or that a medicine can cure a sick person if it can cause a similar sickness in a healthy person. For example, if you peel an onion, your eyes burn, itch and water. You might also have a

runny nose and begin to sneeze. If you had similar symptoms during a cold or an allergy attack, such as a runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing, a homeopathic preparation of Allium Cepa (red onion) would help your body heal.
Homeopathy is not a general term that describes a variety of different alternative or natural therapies. Although homeopathic remedies are derived from natural substances, homeopathy should not be confused with herbal medicine, Chinese medicine, or other types of natural medicines. It is its own, unique therapeutic system.
Homeopathy is highly individualized as it recognizes that each person exhibits disease in a unique and different way. Two people with the same disease will not necessarily receive the same homeopathic remedy. A person with a cold, stuffy nose and dry eyes would receive a different remedy than one with a runny nose and watering eyes. Unlike the “one size fits all” approach to prescribing often used in conventional medicine, a homeopath chooses a remedy that matches the unique symptom profile of the individual. Conventional medicine seeks to control illness and symptoms through the regular and continuous use of medications; if the medicine is withdrawn, the person’s symptoms return. For example, the daily use of drugs for asthma alleviates the symptoms but does not cure the underlying problem. In homeopathy the ideal is that a person needs just enough of the homeopathic remedy to stimulate their healing response. In other words, homeopathy seeks to cure a person so that they do not need any medications—homeopathic or otherwise.
