WHY HOMEOPATHY ROCKS!

It works!

Homeopathy is the second most popular form of medicine in the world according statistics released by the World Health Organization (WHO).  It is supported by many governments around the world.  The millions of people around the world who have used Homeopathy to successfully treat a variety of health issues can’t be wrong.  And, in spite of the claims of the detractors of Homeopathy, there have been many clinical trials conducted demonstrating that Homeopathy is more effective than placebo and in many cases, more effective than pharmaceutical medicine.

It’s Holistic

Holistic medicine treats the patient as a whole person by looking at an individual's overall physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being.  Homeopathy is holistic because it views physical, mental and emotional symptoms as being interconnected.  Think of it this way.  How many times do you walk down the street and say “look, there‘s arthritis?”  More likely, you would probably say “look at that person with arthritis”.  Homeopathy treats people with certain types of conditions or diseases; not just the diseases themselves.

It Works with the Body’s Own Ability to Heal

Homeopathic medicine thinks of our bodies as more than a collection of mechanical parts.  As Homeopaths, we use natural medicines (remedies) that stimulate the body to heal itself.   When the best medicine is chosen for you, your body will respond by working to return to a state of balance.

No Side Effects

We all know that there is a risk of experiencing side effects with pharmaceutical medications.  It is important to realize that just because herbs are natural, it does not mean that you can’t experience a side effect or a negative interaction with a pharmaceutical medication.  This is where Homeopathic remedies shine.  Because of the way they are made (through serial dilution and vigorous shaking), Homeopathic remedies won’t interact with a drug or create side effects.  Homeopathic remedies are safe and gentle enough to give to a baby, to a pregnant woman, to the elderly and even people weakened by serious diseases.

Homeopaths Listen!

Many people are very surprised by how many questions Homeopaths ask.  In today’s quick-paced lifestyle, it is refreshing to sit down and actually be able to talk about yourself to someone who wants to hear what you have to say.  Imagine what the experience of being fully heard by a medical professional would really feel like.  Homeopaths rely as fully on the experience of each patient as much as our own knowledge of the science of Homeopathy.

It is Inexpensive

Have you ever gone to buy a few supplements and ended up spending over $100?  Homeopathic remedies are really inexpensive.  If you buy a tube of a remedy it will usually range from $7 to $9.  The 80 pills in each tube will last for a long time.  Also, many Homeopaths will provide remedies as part of their consultation fee or for a small dispensing fee.

Low Impact on the Environment

Given all of the concern over our environment, Homeopathy is a green medicine.  Obviously it is green because it doesn’t require chemicals or other toxic substances in order to make remedies.  Also, we only require a drop or two to transform a mother tincture into the final form as a Homeopathic remedy.  In this way, we are using very little of Mother Nature’s bounty of minerals and plants.
