Beginner's Guide to Understanding Homeopathy Natural Health Care


"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." I now have a deeper appreciation for this common saying. Healthy living is sometimes easier said than done. There are times when wellness and our bodies just do not see eye-to-eye. All too often, I refer to myself as being a crunch mama, given my preference toward living life as naturally as possible. It's only natural that I would be intrigued by the natural benefits for of homeopathy for my family and myself. What exactly is homeopathy? Let's explore a few things that I've learned in my beginners guide to understanding homeopathy natural health care.

Homeopathy Natural Health Care





What is Homeopathic Medicine?

Let's begin with a working definition of homeopathy. Defined by the American Institute of Homeopathy (AIH) "Homeopathy, or Homeopathic Medicine, is the practice of medicine that embraces a holistic, natural approach to the treatment of the sick. Homeopathy is holistic because it treats the person as a whole, rather than focusing on a diseased part or a labeled sickness. Homeopathy is natural because its remedies are produced according to the U.S. FDA-recognized Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States from natural sources, whether vegetable, mineral, or animal in nature."

"The word Homeopathy, which comes from the Greek, through Latin into English, literally means “like disease”. This means that the medicine given is like the disease that the person is expressing, in his totality, not like a specific disease category or medical diagnosis."


According to Boiron, considered a World Leader in Homeopathic Medicines, the active ingredients in homeopathic medicines are known to be comprised of diluted plants, animals or minerals that relieve the same symptoms they cause at full strength. An example given is that it has been observed that a micro dose of coffee bean helps to relieve nervousness. Very interesting...
