Homeopathic medicine is a fascinating and unconventional approach to healing. At its core, homeopathy operates on the principle that “like cures like.” This means that a substance capable of producing certain symptoms in a healthy person can, in a highly diluted form, help alleviate similar symptoms in someone who’s unwell. It’s a bit like fighting fire with fire but in a gentle and controlled manner. You might see this modality used for a variety of conditions such as colds/flus, after injury to speed healing, digestive and hormonal complaints. Homeopathic medicine is a unique and individualized approach to healing that aims to trigger the body’s innate healing mechanisms.
