Homeopathic medicines are therapeutically active micro-doses of mineral, botanical and biological substances.
They are reliable and safe drugs, therefore considered by many as an excellent first choice when self-medicating. Homeopathy has been used for more than 200 years, building a remarkable safety record and generating a great body of knowledge.
Today, homeopathy is used by millions of patients in more than 65 countries and recommended by more than 400,000 healthcare providers.
What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a therapeutic method that uses highly diluted natural substances to relieve symptoms.
Principles of Homeopathy
Homeopathy derives from the Greek words homeo, meaning “similar,” and pathos, meaning “suffering” (such as the pathology of a disease). Homeopathy operates on a “like cures like” principle that has been used empirically for more than 200 years, and is now confirmed by an increasing number of research publications. Translated, this means that a patient suffering from symptoms can be treated by micro-doses of a substance capable of producing similar symptoms in a healthy person. Homeopathic medicines stimulate the body’s physiological reactions that restore health, with a very low risk of side effects due to the use of micro-doses.
An example of how homeopathic medicines work is the similarly of symptoms between a bee sting and a rash. A bee sting swells and itches. If similar symptoms appear from perhaps hives, a rash or even another insect bite, the homeopathic medicine most appropriate to treat these symptoms is actually made from a tiny amount of a bee. Instead of masking symptoms, the medicine sends the body a signal to help it rebalance and heal.
