Homeopathic Remedies: In contrast to drugs, homeopathic medicine is based on the principle of “like cures like.” Traditional medicine believes that symptoms are caused by disease, but in the homeopathic system, it is believed that symptoms are the body’s natural reaction in fighting disease. So to fight disease, substances are used that stimulate the body’s natural healing ability. Homeopathic remedies contain very small dilutions of the substances and are prepared in a special way. These dilutions enhance the beneficial properties of the substances while avoiding undesirable side effects.
This powerful system of medicine is more than 2000 years old and is widely accepted in other countries. Since homeopathic medicine acts to strengthen the body’s innate immune responses it seldom has side effects. The remedies are safe for babies, children and the elderly. Used in conjunction with other therapies, homeopathy can play a significant role in the treatment and prevention of disease.
