About homeopathic care

Developed in Germany sometime in the 1700s, homeopathic health care focuses on helping the body cure itself. Often, tiny amounts of natural substances, such as plants or minerals, are used to stimulate the body in certain ways, allowing it to build or reform its immune responses and cell structures. Homeopaths, how we refer to homeopathic doctors, take these minute bits of nature and dilute them, usually with water or alcohol. They call this "potentization" and believe it helps release healing essences of the plants or minerals used to create the remedy. Homeopaths deliver these essences in a variety of forms like sugar pellets, drops, creams, and gels. 

There are two rules to homeopathic medicine. The first is "like cures like." This is the belief that an ailment is curable with a substance that would, in a healthy person, produce similar symptoms as the person who is unwell. The second rule is the "law of minimum dose." Homeopaths believe that lower doses of medication produce the greatest effectiveness. Many of the "potentized" mixtures mentioned above are so diluted that no molecules of the original ingredients remain. 

While the science behind homeopathic health care is controversial, traditional medical providers are usually open to their patients using homeopathic remedies alongside traditional health care. Especially treatments which provide immediate relief, such as teas and tablets for allergies or symptoms of the common cold.

Homeopathy is a medical art, and its goal is to build up the body's immune system and cellular function to better to support your health. The philosophy of homeopathic care is that the body can create and maintain a healthy balance, and a homeopath's job is to help you manage symptoms and your body's homeostasis.
