Homeopathy is a gentle, safe and effective healing modality used by many types of physicians including Naturopaths, Chiropractors, Osteopaths and Medical Doctors. Homeopathy is also a medical science, complete with its own view of health and disease and medicines made in a way consistent with this view of human health.
The basic principle of Homeopathy is, ‘like cures like’. You might imagine two identical waves becoming absorbed in one another. The Homeopath identifies the pattern of illness in the patient and then applies the remedy that most closely matches that pattern, the matching patterns cancel one another out and the patient’s symptoms are relieved completely and permanently. The remedies themselves are made from common things such as salt, calcium, and plants of all kinds.
The difference between botanical medicine and Homeopathy lies in how the remedies are made. In botanical medicine herbs and minerals are primarily used in their pure, undiluted form either as dry, ground herbs or as liquid tinctures. In Homeopathy, those base substances are diluted in water thousands of times and succussed (shaken vigorously) between each dilution. The extreme dilution creates very tiny, nanoparticles that absorb into the cells of the body to encourage deep, long lasting healing.
Because of its gentle and deep-acting nature, Homeopathy is capable of treating even the most chronic, long-standing ailments in everyone including babies, young children, older patients and pregnant women.
Homeopathy is also very effective for acute ailments such as colds, flus, coughs, digestive upset and more. You can learn to treat yourself and your family with these kinds of ailments safely at home. Dr. Pedro offers classes throughout the year for anyone interested in learning this skill.
