Homeopathy helps stimulate your body’s natural immune system and enhance self-healing.
Based on the idea that our bodies have the innate ability to heal themselves, homeopathy is a 200-year-old approach to natural medicine that uses "remedies" to stimulate the body’s natural immune system and enhance its healing and self-regulatory processes.
Homeopathy is based upon the law of similars, or "like cures like.” Its guiding principle is that if a substance can produce a symptom in a healthy person, that same substance can cure those symptoms in a sick one.
In a simple example, someone suffering from hay fever might be given a remedy prepared from an onion, because, in a healthy person, chopping an onion can cause watery eyes, a runny nose and sinus irritation. Just like hay fever.
When the body becomes stressed, it’s hard to stay in balance. At first little things go wrong: sleepless nights, TMJ, irritability. If you don't take care of yourself, more serious problems can occur. On top of it all, if emotional traumas resurface or mental stresses occur, your body is in for a double whammy .
Metaphorically, think of a radio station. Each of us has our own playlist of songs, with our life experiences set to a particular frequency, or station. If the radio is not tuned correctly, or something interferes with the frequency, the broadcast is full of static, and the music can't be heard. A good homeopathic remedy that is in tune with your constitution can gently and subtly "reset the dial," bringing you back in tune with your health, so that your unique and beautiful song can be heard again.
