Homeopathy is the second largest system of medicine in the world. It embraces an holistic approach by considering all aspects that make a person unique, such as mental, physical and emotional states. Homeopathic remedies are made of plants, minerals, elements and animal substances and are completely safe and effective for everyone, from the pregnant or nursing mom, to the elderly.
Homeopathy is based on the law of nature, referred to as the "Law of Similars". This means, that when a healthy person ingests a substance in its crude or natural form, it can cause symptoms. When we make a homeopathic remedy from the same substance, it can cure symptoms that are similar to what it can produce. As an example, the plant Arnica Montana, when taken in it's natural form, will cause symptoms as you have bruised and beaten, like after an accident or a fall. When a patient comes to me with symptoms as if bruised (or literally has been bruised due to an accident), I can give Arnica in homeopathic potency, and this will heal those injuries.
