Health and fitness: Homeopathy is gaining attention

-A A +A
By The Staff

When I tell people I practice naturopathic medicine, the most common response I hear is “Oh, you use homeopathy.”

Well, yes, I use homeopathic remedies along with botanical and nutritional medicines, lifestyle and nutritional counseling and home physiotherapy treatments.

I am delighted that so many people have heard of homeopathy. I’ll explain here a bit about these safe, non-toxic medicines.

Homeopathy is a unique medical system that uses micro-doses of specially-prepared remedies to stimulate the body’s own healing potential. These remedies can be used for acute illnesses or to help improve someone’s overall health.

They are effectively used with animals. They are safe to use with children, elderly and during pregnancies.

There is a specific process used to make homeopathic remedies. It starts with an extract of a particular substance, often from a plant, mineral or animal. Then the extract is repeatedly diluted with clean water and shaken a certain number of times between dilutions.

The remedy’s name is the Latin word for the original substance. “Calcarea carbonica,” for example, is made from the mineral calcium carbonate.
