Alternative Medicine


Homeopathy dates back to the late 1700's, thanks to the German physician, Samuel Hahnemann. He began his search for alternative health treatments after losing faith in the medical practices of his time.

Dr. Hahnemann theorized that symptoms were the key treating the problem. He believed that if a specific substance could cause a certain symptom when taken in its natural state, that the same substance could also alleviate the symptom after having been diluted.

As in Dr. Hahnemann's time, the Western world's current conception of how to treat and cure diseases is with prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines and in the most severe cases, surgery. However, many of the drugs merely disguise the symptoms of the ailments and do nothing to cure the problem itself.

Homeopathy puts Dr. Hahnemann's theories to use. It is the practice of using natural materials provided by Mother Nature's tincture at various dilutions. By focusing on the particular symptoms rather than trying to cure it, homeopathy promotes the body's natural healing process, so it may cure itself.

The natural materials used in homeopathic remedies are derived from a variety of plants, minerals, and animal sources. Since homeopathy has been used for over 200 years, the development and discovery of new remedies is a continuous process.

Because homeopathic remedies are completely natural, they can be self administered. In addition, homeopathic medicines typically cost less and do not cause the unwanted side effects other prescription or over-the-counter medicines may initiate.

If you are looking for a natural alternative to "traditional" medicines and over-the-counter drugs, homeopathy may provide the answers that you are looking for.
