Homeopathy

Stimulating a healing response within your body.

Homeopathy is a system of medicine focused on triggering the body’s natural method of healing; this is accomplished by matching a remedy with symptoms specific to the individual. Homeopathic remedies are extremely diluted medicines that stimulate a healing response within your body. The very small concentrations lead to a response in which the remedy will cure the condition it would otherwise cause in larger doses. This is the principle of “like curing like.” The symptoms you are experiencing are a window to the right homeopathic remedy for you.

Homeopathic medicine follows the naturopathic philosophy of working with your body’s own healing mechanisms. The effects can be profound. Homeopathy is being used by naturopathic physicians for all types of health concerns including:

  • Digestive disorders
  • Allergies
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Acute illness
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Child growth and development
  • Hormonal and sexual dysfunction
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Chronic pain
  • Mental health issues like anxiety and depression
  • Insomnia
  • Neurological disorders
  • Skin disorders

The intake process for a homeopathic remedy is thorough and looks at all aspects of your health, personality, preferences, and tendencies. The remedy will be individually selected for you, considering your overall health status and other necessary characteristic symptoms. Results vary, and you may get significant changes from being on just one remedy or you may change remedies over time.

Your homeopathic remedy is generally dispensed in pellets or a liquid, and you can pick them up in the SCNM medicinary on your way out of the medical center. The remedies are essentially tasteless and easy to take, so rest assured it will be an easy treatment to follow.
