Homeopathy / Chiropractic
What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a scientific system of health care which activates the body’s own healing processes in order to cure disease naturally, gently and promptly. Homeopathy is a natural pharmaceutical science that uses very small or infinitesimal doses of substances from the plant, mineral, or animal kingdoms to activate the body’s nervous system to initiate the healing response.
The word HOMEOPATHY is derived from the Greek “Homoios” meaning similar and “pathos” meaning suffering.
The science of Homeopathy was founded in the early 1800’s by a German physician and chemist, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, while doing research into the toxicological effects of the medicines of his time. Dr. Hahnemann discovered that a specific dilution of a substance would remove the symptoms that substance was capable of evoking. Through numerous experiments, he advanced the theory that “likes are cured by likes,” and today it is a verified law of Pharmacology, “The Law of Similars.”
What are Homeopathic Medicines?
Homeopathy is a method that uses diluted substances to relieve symptoms. These ingredients include diluted plant, animal and mineral extracts that will aid in the relief of the very same symptoms they cause at full strength. For example, very diluted doses of coffee bean will help relieve nervousness.
Additionally, these remedies work naturally with your body. There’s no risk of overdose or counter interaction with other medications. Homeopathy is a great choice for complementary or alternative treatment.
Helping New Users…
Homeopathic medicines can be single (one active ingredient) or bonded (multiple ingredients). They are available in tablets, gels, ointments, creams or drops. You will also see application of the Law of Similars in Genetics, Physics, Chemistry or Immunology. In Physics, opposite poles of a magnet attract while similar poles repel. By placing similar poles next to each other, a weakened magnet will be recharged/regenerated or healed by the Law of Similars. A basic principal of solvent chemistry is that a substance will be a solvent to another substance when it has a similar type of molecular bond. It has to be either similarly polar or similar Apolar and then like will dissolve like. Immunology of course, crudely applies the Law of Similars to activate antibody responses with small doses of a similar substance that will evoke the allergic symptoms.
