Homeopathy is one of the ways we help patients at Aurora Naturopathic heal from acute or chronic illnesses. It is a system of medicine that uses the concepts of “like cures like,” “address the whole person and treat the whole person, not just the symptom.” Often, we see patients who have tried traditional treatment and are seeking another option.
What type of symptoms can homeopathy treat?
Many types of symptoms can be treated using homeopathy. From acute illnesses, such as ear infections, coughs, and flu, to chronic conditions, such as hormonal imbalances or autoimmune disease, headache, or depression, can be treated with homeopathic remedies.
What are homeopathic remedies made from?
They are made from diluted versions of minerals, plants, or animal venoms. They contain less harmful chemicals and substances than traditional medicine.
As with other naturopathic treatments, homeopathy stimulates the body to heal itself. Rather than masking symptoms, we treat with the principal of like cures like. For example, you may have insomnia from drinking coffee. We might recommend a diluted version of the coffee to help you sleep better.
Traditional medicine, for example, will often give two patients with depression the same prescription. One patient might be more sad and weepy while the other is agitated and angry. Homeopathy enables us to tailor the treatment to each individual.
We are able to prescribe different medicines for different types of depression and achieve better results for our patients. Our goal is to help find solutions to help you feel better.
