Homeopathy is a system of medical therapy that uses very small doses of medicines, or remedies. These homeopathic remedies are prepared from substances found in nature. Nevertheless, homeopathy should not be confused with herbal medicine. These two systems of medicine are very different. Herbal medicine uses tinctures of botanical substances, whereas homeopaths use ultradilute "micro"doses made from not only plants, but minerals or any other substance found in nature.
Homeopathy focuses on helping the body regain a balance of health called homeostasis. When we are ill, our bodies try to regain this balance and the symptoms we experience are manifestations of that struggle, but they are the necessary steps back to health. Because the symptoms are necessary, a well-chosen prepared remedy will help those symptoms be properly manifested so a cure can be achieved naturally.
Homeopathic medicine is a safe, effective and affordable alternative medicine, which has been used for over 200 years. In fact, the family doctor to England’s Queen Elizabeth is a homeopathic physician. The World Health Organization lists homeopathy as the second most widely used health care system in the world the first is herbal medicine.
Homeopathic remedies come in many forms-from tablets to topical applications, pill to pellets-as varied as the ailments they treat. Customers also have the option of taking single homeopathic medicines, which feature one active ingredient, or combination medicines, which have multiple active ingredients.
It is worthwhile to note for those not as familiar with homeopathy that all remedies are required to have an indication on the label, but the indication is only a general symptom as all of the symptoms cannot be listed on each remedy’s label. You can always refer to the individual homeopathic to see the entire list of symptoms.
