Frequently Asked Questions

What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a branch of natural medicine that has been used worldwide for over 200 years. It is a safe, natural and holistic practice that uses micro-doses of remedies to gently stimulate the system, working with the bodies innate mechanisms rather than against it. Homeopathy roots itself in the theory of "like cures like", which states a substance that can stimulate symptoms in a healthy person can heal them in a sick person- for example: Homeopathic Coffee (Coffee Cruda) can be used for insomnia. 

How does Homeopathy work?

Homeopathy capitalizes on the theory of homeostasis which states: the body has a natural tendency to strive for general equilibrium, to find balance in the face of environmental shifts and incoming stressors.

Homeopathic remedies are given to gently stimulate various feedback loops and initiate organ communication. By doing so, the remedy simply initiates the healing process while the the body completes the repair of cells, tissues, and functions, relieving symptoms in the process. Homeopathy heals the root causes of illnesses, bringing about more permanent relief and less reliance on medication.

What is a Homeopathic remedy?
What is a Homeopathic remedy?

Homeopathically prepared remedies are different from botanical medicines (ie.: supplements, tinctures, herbs). While they are originally sourced from animals/plants/minerals, they are then potentized through a process of sequential dilution and succussion (agitation), which results in a micro-dilution of the original substance.

The process of potentization produces a substance capable of stimulating healing without interfering with other medications/therapies, or producing negative side-effects on patients. 

Is Homeopathy the same as Naturopathy?

No, Homeopathy is a complete medical system with it's own theory of health and it's own remedies. Homeopath's complete a specialized three-year program (at minimum) in Homeopathy and health sciences. Naturopath's may practice homeopathy - similarly to how they may practice acupuncture, herbalism, TCM and nutrition.
