What is Homeopathic Medicine?
Homeopathic Medicine is a system of medicine developed by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann. Homeopathic remedies stimulate the body to heal itself. Homeopathic medicines are made from plant, animal or mineral products that are so dilute, there is no chance of toxicity. In this way, homeopathic medicines are safe for children, pregnant or breastfeeding women or anyone on medication as it does not interact.
In medicine there are two ways to treat ill health: the law of opposites and the and the law of similars.Consider a patient with a cough. The way of opposites is to use anti-cough drugs which suppress the cough. The way of similars (homeopathy) is to give a medicine to help the body recover from the cough by stimulating a healing response.
In homeopathy, your individual uniqueness is very important. In homeopathy, how you uniquely express the symptoms of your illness is important. All of the symptoms you experience are important to help un select the correct remedy for you. In order to help your Naturopathic Doctor identify the appropriate homeopathic medicine, accurate observation and reporting of our symptoms is essential.
