What is homeopathy &
how is it used?
The Safer Alternative to Corticosteroids, via injection therapy, oral, topical, tablet, pill, and tincture forms.
Homeopathic remedies can be made from plant, animal or mineral substances. These substances, in homeopathic potency, each have unique mental, emotional and physical characteristics that have been identified by homeopathic practitioners over many years of trial and practice. Homeopathic remedies are available as either single remedies called simplexes (termed classical homeopathy) or as a combination of more than one ingredient, called complexes (clinical homeopathy) or as a liquid/tincture or injectable form administered only by a Licensed Health Practitioner. Treatment by a homeopathic doctor involves an in-depth, individual approach by a highly specialized professional. For the lay person, who wants to treat themselves naturally but who does not have the specialized knowledge, the combination remedies are more user-friendly.
1. Broad application
Each remedy may be used for a number of different ailments
e.g. the sting 30C remedy, which can be used for any stinging
sensation from a bee, wasp or jelly fish sting to a hot water scald
and even severe sunburn. The anti-spasm 200C remedy can be
used for any muscle spasm from stomach cramps and colic in
babies to leg cramps and menstrual cramps.
2. Helps the body to heal itself and to stay in balance
Good health is all about balance. Illness may be seen as an imbalance
in a particular area of the body. Our bodies have an innate intelligence
that works continuously to restore us to health. Homeopathic remedies
simply provide the stimulus or a ‘message of healing’ to the body to rectify
the imbalance. Each dose of the remedy is a reminder to the body to
continue the healing process.
3. Treat symptoms and heals underlying cause
Homeopathy not only treats symptoms, but also works to shift
the underlying reason for the imbalance. This means that using
the remedies on a regular basis for a particular ailment e.g. hay f
ever or cystitis, will result in fewer episodes as the body is brought
closer to balance. The higher potencies remedies many times a
quicker response time. In most cases a response is felt after the
3rd dose. In acute conditions, the body uses up the remedies very
quickly, so the higher potencies are more effective and also allow
for healing of the underlying condition.
4. Safe for pregnancy and newborns
Homeopathy is absolutely safe for pregnant
and breastfeeding moms to use as well
as for new born infants.
5. Complementary to allopathic drugs
Homeopathy can be safely used in conjunction with conventional
medicine as it will not interfere with or hinder the effectiveness of
pharmaceutical drugs. Instead, the homeopathic remedy will go
to work, treating both the cause and the symptoms.
6. Effective for animals
Our pets can benefit from homeopathy as the remedies are extremely
effective for animals.
7. Remedies do not expire
Because homeopathic remedies never expire, they are very
cost-effective. Unlike conventional pharmaceutical drugs,
you will not have to throw them out if you don’t use them
within a specified time period.
