The term homeopathy comes from the Greek words homeo (meaning similar) and pathos (meaning suffering or disease). Homeopathy seeks to stimulate the body’s ability to balance itself by giving very small doses of highly diluted substances. This therapeutic method was developed by German physician Samuel Christian Hahnemann at the end of the 18th century.
Homeopathy recognizes that each person manifests illness in a unique way. That is why two people with the same illness will not necessarily receive the same homeopathic remedy. Unlike conventional medicine, the homeopath chooses a remedy that matches a person’s unique symptom profile including physical, mental and emotional symptoms. Most importantly, we seek to understand the way in which the individual perceives his/her reality.
Homeopathic medicine is considered to be universal and suitable for everyone. This means that whether you are two legged, four legged, furred, or finned, homeopathic medicine can balance the essence of a being.
as a 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, health instrument for the higher purposes
for our existence.”
