Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a therapeutic system of medicine that is based on the principle of similars - like cures like - which means that a substance that can cause certain symptoms in a healthy person can cure similar symptoms in an unhealthy person. Homeopathy aims to aid and stimulate the body's own defense and immune processes.

Homeopathic medicines are derived from a variety of plants, animal materials and minerals. These medicines are holistically prescribed to fit each individual's needs, given in much smaller and less toxic doses than traditional medications and are used for both prevention and treatment.
