Homeopathy, Specialties, Sundries

Homeopathy is extracted from plants and other natural ingredients, given in minute doses. It works on something known as the "Law of Similars" and "Let likes cured by Likes". Check the handy reference guide at the bottom of this article.

Homeopathy was discovered by the German Physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the early 1800s, and disillusioned by what they called the medical field at the time. None of their potions offered the body a chance to heal itself with its own healing powers. Dr. Hahnemann knew that there existed medicine that could work with the body and assist it to overcome illness. In fact, there was great interest in Homeopathy when a crisis of typhoid fever took over in Germany and Dr. Hahnemann’s medicine had the highest cure rate. All the physicians of the time became very interested. The word spread throughout Germany, France, England, Europe, Asia, India, and the United States. Upon learning this, the pharmaceutical companies began producing (OTC) over the counter drugs. This illusion of just pop the miracle pill and become well was what this was all about, brainwashing! Now in the 2000″s we realize there are no miracles, diseases are more rampant than ever before, and the need for natural medicine that works with your body and not against it, since one cannot cure with chemicals. Drugs do nothing to stimulate the healing process. Yes, they do suppress the symptoms, and sometimes we do need them, especially if we have a lot of pain. Homeopathy is extracted from plants and other natural ingredients, given in minute doses, to respond to fighting for its life. Excellent for all ages, including children, and more mature ones that do not like to swallow pills, easy to take, usually just melts in your mouth. You cannot over stimulate a gland or an organ with Homeopathy, it just brings it back to normal functioning, with no known side effects.

It is given in very low potencies, in multiple doses of 6X or 30X, this means that much dilution of the remedies. It works on something known as the “Law of Similars” and “Let likes cured by Likes”. Public recognition has increased dramatically; Evan the FDA (not that we care) has recognized the remedies as over the counter forms of Natural Medicine. All Homeopathies are compatible with medications. However, do not take them at the same time.
