What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that is over 200 years old! Nature offers almost everything we need to heal, and people have known this for thousands of years.
Homeopathic medicines, or “remedies,” are FDA-regulated, and made from highly diluted substances found in nature. They are given in minute doses and work as a catalyst to create a healing response in the body. They have no drug interactions or side effects, and have the ability to restore health in the most gentle and subtle, yet profound way.
Is Homeopathy the same as using essential oils or taking supplements?
“Homeopathy” is not a general term that describes a variety of different natural therapies. Although homeopathic remedies are derived from natural substances and is considered a “holistic” approach, homeopathy should not be confused with herbal medicine, essential oils, acupuncture, supplements or other natural approaches. While these modalities have a lot to offer, they differ significantly from the practice of homeopathy.
What kinds of things do people use Homeopathy for?
Any symptom, whether it be acute such as an ear infection, fever, rash or headache; or chronic conditions such as migraines, infertility, asthma, anxiety, depression or autism – is the body’s way of expressing an imbalance. Homeopathy is a highly individualized practice of selecting a remedy that best matches your mental, emotional and physical state, and by taking that remedy, stimulates a healing response in your body that, over time, brings you back into balance to restore health.
How do you take it?
Homeopathic remedies can be taken in liquid or pellet form. They are available at homeopathic pharmacies in the US and abroad. Some remedies in lower potency can be found at Whole Foods or health food stores.
What if I am already taking medication?
One of the most beautiful things about homeopathy is that it can safely be used alongside any medication you are taking and there are no interactions or side effects to worry about.
Can Homeopathy be used for pets?
Yes! When used correctly, Homeopathy is safe and effective for everyone, including babies, animals and the elderly.
How does the process work?
We will schedule a consultation either in-person or online via Zoom or Skype video conferencing. Our first appointment will take about 1-2 hours. Shortly after, a homeopathic remedy will be suggested that can be ordered and mailed to your home, and I will provide instructions on how to take it. We will then schedule a shorter follow up appointment 3-4 weeks after to see how you are doing and if any adjustments need to be made. After that, we will continue to have follow-ups as needed.
How do I order remedies?
Some remedies can be obtained at your local Whole Foods or health food store. But I usually recommend ordering from Hahnemann Labs, which is a reputable and convenient source who manufactures a wide range of remedies and potencies.
