Homeopathy is based around the core belief that the body is innately intelligent and designed to heal. Although it is not well understood in our current culture, the practice has been around since the 1700s and is the second largest therapeutic system in use in the world today. It is an alternative medicinal practice that uses the smallest possible amount of an active ingredient in order to help treat, prevent, or cure symptoms of disease by positively affecting the immune system. The general rule for Homeopathy is “like cure like.” Treatments are individualized and tailored to each person’s specific symptoms, history, body and needs. It is a holistic approach taking into account all aspects of the individual including emotions, personality, stress levels, relationships, personal characteristics, family and so on.
