“Homeopathy is second-largest and the fastest-growing medicine in the world.”

~ World Health Organization

Homeopathy is a medical science and art developed over 200 years ago by Samuel Hahnemann, a brilliant physician and medical translator in Germany. It quickly became the medicine of choice among many Europeans. Homeopathy gained great fame due to its success during epidemics, and, by 1900, it was practiced by one in five medical doctors in the U.S.

Over the past thirty years, homeopathy has enjoyed a boom in popularity and interest in the U.S., India, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and many other places throughout the world. According to the World Health Organization, homeopathy is second-largest and the fastest-growing medicine in the world. In India alone, 100 million people use it exclusively to stay healthy. Up to 70% of French doctors consider homeopathy effective, and at least 25,000 prescribe it for their patients. A 2011 report by the government of Switzerland, a bastion of pharmaceutical headquarters, concluded that homeopathic medicine was both effective and cost-effective, and recommended that it be covered by their national health insurance (according to a February, 2012 article in the Huffington Post by Dana Ullman, M.P.H.).

Homeopathy is Unique

  • The idea of like cures like means that the same substance that causes a particular constellation of symptoms can cure those same symptoms. Think of the redness, heat, pain, and inflammation of a bee sting. The best cure is to take a dose of homeopathic Apis, which is made from that same honey bee.
  • There is one particular medicine from the natural world, or simillium, that will address all of your symptoms, and bring you into balance.
  • Homeopathic medicines are diluted (up to thousands of times in succession) and shaken, so that they are extremely safe and gentle, but highly effective . They heal on an energetic level. There is no need to worry about side effects, as you do with conventional medications.

Homeopathic medicines can be made from absolutely anything in the natural world. There are now over 3500 different medicines, or remedies, available from homeopathic pharmacies. While self-treatment with homeopathy can be rapid and highly effective for first-aid and acute conditions, prescribing constitutionally (for the whole person for chronic problems) is an art. Just as you would consult a surgeon if you had appendicitis, the results that you will find through treatment with a trained, experienced homeopathic practitioner can make all the difference in making your treatment a success.
