WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY?
Homeopathy by definition is the alternative treatment of disease by minute doses of natural substances that in a healthy person would produce symptoms of disease.
- The Law of Similars.
Homeopathy works differently by first examining what your overall symptoms, personality traits and even food cravings are. Then based on your symptoms we look for a substance in nature that when taken internally/externally gives the same reaction. For example onions make your eyes and nose water. Onion (Alium Cepa) is often given in response to allergy type symptoms like watery eyes and runny noses. The goal of homeopathy is to restore the body to homeostasis by balancing symptoms out.
IT IS NOT the homeopaths place to solely diagnose disease or to undermine your primary doctors care. However it is the goal for years to come that alternative medicine practitioners can work in tandem with traditional medicine doctors to come up with the least harmful treatments for the sick.
Many remedies are made from common herbs, spices or minerals. Remedies can be made into liquid tinctures that are than placed under the tongue by a dropper, or in pellet form that can be taken orally.
Someone may choose homeopathy as a less expensive, natural alternative to other forms of treatments and medicines. It is a viable option that has been practiced for centuries and used widely across the world today.
Is Homeopathy covered by my insurance? No Homeopathy is considered an alternative form of medicine and much like services performed in naturopathic or acupuncture practices insurance does not cover it.
