Homeopathy

Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, is recogmized as the father of Homeopathy. He founded Homeopathy over 180 years ago. The basic premise of Homeopathy is the "Law of Similars" or "like cures like".

Homeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world. Its growth in popularity in the United States has been approximately 25 to 50 percent a year throughout the past decade. This success is fueled by several factors:

  • Homeopathy is extremely effective. When the correct remedy is taken, results can be rapid, complete and permanent.
  • Homeopathy is completely safe. Even babies and pregnant women can use Homeopathy without the danger of side effects. Homeopathic remedies can also be taken alongside other medication without producing unwanted side effects.
  • Homeopathy is natural. Homeopathic remedies are normally based on natural ingredients. Homeopathy works in harmony with your immune system, unlike some conventional medicines, which suppress the immune system. (For example, cough medicines suppress the cough reflex, which is your body's attempt to clear the lungs.)
  • Homeopathic remedies are not addictive - once relief is felt, you should stop taking them. If no relief is felt, you are probably taking the wrong homeopathic remedy.
