Homeopathy is a system of medicine founded by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann over 200 years ago.  It is safe and effective and stimulates your body’s own ability to heal itself.

Symptoms are your body’s warning signs that something isn’t quite right.  For example, if you have a symptom like heartburn, your body may be trying to tell you it doesn’t like something you’re doing like eating late at night or consuming food that is too spicy or fatty.

If you have symptoms that won’t go away, homeopathy is a great way to resolve them.  It works with your immune system to eliminate the problem and restore health.  Symptoms can be:  Physical like a skin rash, arthritis, or gastric distress; mental like depression or anxiety; or emotional like the heartbreak of losing a loved one.  Whatever your symptom, using homeopathy is a great way to resolve it.

Homeopathic remedies are FDA approved and manufactured using good manufacturing practices.  The remedies are derived from plants, animals or minerals and diluted with water until there is nothing left of the original substance.  This is known as the “minimal dose.”  The only thing remaining after remedies are processed is the essence or energy of the original substance.  Think of a drop of water in the ocean.  The drop represents the original substance (plant, animal, or mineral) and the ocean represents the final product or remedy.

Homeopathy is unique in the way it heals.  Because no two people are exactly alike, a holistic approach is required.  Homeopaths choose a customized remedy based on careful analysis of each client’s specific symptoms.  Then a remedy is prescribed that works by stimulating their immune system and eliminating the symptoms.  The well-chosen remedy can bring about a profound sense of well being even before it begins to treat the physical symptoms.

Homeopathy can be safely used with prescription medications with no side effects or interactions.  It is non-toxic. When appropriately administered by a trained professional, it can be safely used to treat infants, children, adults and animals. More and more parents are turning to homeopathy as a first line of therapy in treating their children (behavioral problems, ADD, ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, inability to focus, and many other conditions).  If you have questions as to whether or not homeopathy is right for you, contact us today at 617-678-4088.
