Homeopathy is a safe and natural method of healing that has been practiced worldwide for over 200 years. It is a system of medicine that delivers a gentle, rapid and permanent response to illness. Homeopathy works by stimulating the body’s own natural ability to heal itself. Symptoms are not viewed as expression of disease rather; they are an expression of the body’s attempt at cure. Personalizing treatment and considering the patient as a whole using physical, mental and emotional symptoms is significant to the treatment process as it enables the homeopath to select a remedy that best suits each individual and their illness.
