WHY SHOULD YOU SEE A HOMEOPATH?
Homeopathy, or homeopathic medicine, is a medical philosophy and practice based on the idea that the body has the ability to heal itself. Homeopathy was founded in the late 1700s in Germany and has been widely practiced throughout Europe. Homeopathic medicine views symptoms of illness as normal responses of the body as it attempts to regain health.
Homeopathy is based on the idea that "like cures like." That is, if a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, giving the person a very small amount of the same substance may cure the illness. In theory, a homeopathic dose enhances the body's normal healing and self-regulatory processes.
A homeopathic health practitioner (homeopath) uses pills or liquid mixtures (solutions) containing only a little of an active ingredient (usually a plant or mineral) for treatment of disease. These are known as highly diluted or "potentiated" substances. There isn't strong evidence from science to show that homeopathic medicines are effective for any specific condition.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Homeopathic remedies stimulate the body’s vital force into action.
The body is designed to maintain perfect balance or homeostasis. When genetic predispositions are triggered by mental, lifestyle and environmental stressors, the body loses this perfect balance and illness results.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Homeopathic medicines are fast acting, restoring optimal health for both acute and chronic conditions. Homeopathic treatments address disease at the root level, rather than just the symptoms. This is a Classical Homeopath approach.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes. Since the substances are given in minute doses unwanted side-effects are avoided, making them safe to use even in situations where conventional drugs would be dangerous or inadvisable, for example during pregnancy or when treating infants. Homeopathic remedies are natural, non-toxic, and very safe for short and long-term use.
HOW TO TAKE HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINES
For LIQUID remedies:
1. Your practitioner will advise you on each remedy’s dosage. Some medicines are best taken in the morning or evening, while others are optimally taken spread somewhat evenly through the day.
2. Simply invert the bottles and allow the drops to fall directly into your mouth. You can hold them in your mouth a few moments before swallowing.
3. Sometimes it can be hard to get drops to come out, especially from new bottles. If you tap the base of the bottle firmly on the palm of your hand a few times that generally frees things up.
4. Sometimes the bottle displays indications that are different than the reason you might be taking or seeking help. Please do not be alarmed. Medicines are required by law to list at least a couple things that they are used for but the reality of homeopathic medicines is that they are useful for a wide variety of ailments. The remedy selection is based on symptoms only in part; so the use of the symptoms listed on the label as a guide is actually an incorrect application of the remedy, results will often not be satisfying or be confusing, please consult a health professional trained in homeopathic remedy selection.
Keep the remedies in a cool, dark, dry place, away from strong smells (pot-pourri, spices, etc.) Refrigerator and bathroom cabinets are not good places because they are damp and sometimes moldy. Also keep the lids of the bottles tightly closed. Keep the remedies away from the microwave oven, and from electrical panels – the microwave and electromagnetic field seem to weaken the remedies over time.
Don’t leave the remedies in car on hot day – the heat will weaken them.
Keep out of reach of children, as with any medication.
