What is Homeopathy and Why Use It?
Homeopathy is a whole healthcare system that emphasizes treating the whole person, physical symptoms, emotions, genetic influences, stressors, and the underlying causes of your health problems, as opposed to just the disease. This means that homeopathic remedies are designed to help strengthen our natural defense mechanisms rather than suppress them, which can lead to chronic illness and side effects from traditional medications. It is a holistic system of medicine that has been around for over 200 years.
While the human body is capable of restoring health, many individuals ignore their bodies’ warnings or take a few pills for short-term comfort. Naturopathy aims to help people achieve optimal physical and emotional health by combining traditional and natural healing methods.
Homeopathic remedies are unique because they can be used prophylactically or therapeutically for acute or chronic conditions, including allergies, arthritis, asthma, epilepsy/seizures, headaches/migraines, mental disorders, and so much more.
Facts and History
Homeopathy is practiced globally. It is the second most commonly used healthcare system in the world. It is used in over 80 countries on a regular basis by over 200 million people worldwide. Homeopathy is part of the national health system in Brazil, France, Germany, Switzerland, India, Mexico, Chile, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and the UK.
At its peak in the early 1900’s there were:
- 22 homeopathic medical schools
- More than 100 homeopathic hospitals
- Over 1000 homeopathic pharmacies
- One out of every five doctors in the U.S. practiced homeopathy
Homeopathy, however, was severely devalued and discredited due to the political efforts of certain powerful individuals and organizations. But, thankfully, it is making a comeback.
There are several reasons why you might want to consider using homeopathy:
- Homeopathy is unique in that it addresses all levels of human functioning – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – through its remedies.
- Homeopathy is holistic
- It also offers an affordable treatment option for everyone who needs it!
- And everyone can use it
- Homeopathy is gentle and yet deep and powerful
It is a good option for those who are tired of the side effects from chemical medications, or have had no success with these options. It can also be used in conjunction with traditional medicine to support healing without suppressing symptoms or altering your biochemistry (which many pharmaceutical drugs do).
It’s a win-win situation for everyone! And, I am happy to be part of that solution.
