At Aurora Natural Medicine, our team of naturopathic doctors uses homeopathy to treat chronic and acute illnesses. Rather than masking symptoms like many traditional and over the counter medications, homeopathic remedies are prescribed after a medical exam that includes asking a series of questions to identify the root cause of symptoms. Why homeopathy works and makes sense is because we’re treating the cause of your discomfort and stimulating the body to heal itself.
What is homeopathy?
Developed in Germany in the late 1700’s, homeopathy is the treatment of symptoms using the principle of “like cures like.” The word homoios is Greek for similar and pathos means suffering. We’re treating symptoms as normal responses of the body rather than masking or suppressing them.
Allergies like hayfever, for example, are often described as a reaction to allergens but they are a sign that there is something out of balance in the immune system. We would treat in a way that increases the vitality of the immune system, not just stop your itchy eyes and runny nose. Our goal is for your body to be healthy.
Homeopathy works and makes sense because we’re treating the body as a whole.
Homeopathic remedies are typically small sublingual (under the tongue) tablets taken at regular intervals until symptoms have subsided. In some cases, it may be a longer term solution to a chronic problem. These remedies do not interact with other medication though they can interact with other homeopathic remedies making it important to be under the care of a doctor.
Reasons to Consider Homeopathy
While some may argue that homeopathic remedies contain ineffective small doses whose only result is a placebo effect, we argue that we’re only giving the body what it needs to trigger its own healing. We’ve used homeopathic remedies to treat a variety of conditions including:
- Chronic pain
- Digestive disorders
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Always seek a medical professional who has been properly trained when seeking Homeopathic treatment.
