Homeopathy was developed in the 18th Century by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. In his work, he refined Hippocrates' principle of "like cures like“, known today as the Law of Similars. The Law of Similars states that any substance that can produce a state of disease can also cure that same disease. A person’s symptoms, mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical are used as a guide to select the remedy that will evoke the healing response. Homeopathic remedies come from substances in the natural world, plants, animals, and minerals. They are safe and non-toxic.
Please note that homeopathy does not treat disease, but balances and strengthens the body's vital force. It is always your body that heals.
Emphasis is on restoring the balance of bodily functions and strengthening individualized forces to live one's life to the fullest possible. Homeopathy does not suppress symptoms like drugs or surgery, but works to support the body's natural healing abilities.
“In the healthy human state, the spirit-like life force that enlivens the material organism as dynamis, governs without restriction and keeps all parts of the organism in admirable, harmonious, vital operation, as regards both feelings and functions, so that our indwelling, rational spirit can freely avail itself of this living, healthy instrument for the higher purposes of our existence.” Organon of Rational Healing – Samuel Hahnemann
Homeopathy is highly individualized. Three people with a cold, for example, may each need a different remedy, depending on how the body is expressing the symptoms of a cold.
Homeopathy is available for revitalizing the vital force during acute as well as chronic symptoms.
