Homeopathy is a system of medicine based on the principle that illness can be cured by stimulating the body’s ability to heal itself physically, emotionally and mentally with specially selected substances carefully selected for their energy giving qualities. It is based on the principle “like cures like” which means the same substance that can cause a particular set of symptoms in a well person can cure the same in an ill person. Homeopathy treats the whole person collectively and regards symptoms as expressions of distress in attempt to make the necessary changes toward healing. Suppressing these symptoms will only prevent the body’s fight to cure itself. Through homeopathy, not only are the symptoms alleviated, but the body’s own “vital force” is strengthened to re-establish balance and harmony, which is the state of health. Treatments include lifestyle and nutritional counseling, cell salt deficiency, botanical medicine and detoxification.
