Frequently Asked Questions
What is Homeopathy
Homeopathy is a safe and gentle 200-year-old healing philosophy.
Homeopathy is covered by the national health plans of the UK, Denmark, Luxembourg, Switzerland. It is the most popular form of alternative medicine in France. 58% have used them several times with 40% using homeopathy for a decade or more.
But it has been harder to gain ground in the US, due to a long-standing war with allopathic or traditional medicine. With that war continuing today, as Pharma lobbyists continue to try and lobby homeopathy out of existence while they attempt to also lobby away any medical choice.

Homeopathy comes from the principle of "like cures like." Samuel Hahnemann was a German physician who was tired of what he thought were "barbaric practices" of medicine during his time, like bloodletting and leeching.
Hahnemann went in search of an alternative philosophy. He was a translator of 7 different languages.
The law of similars was mentioned by Hippocrates. And while trying to determine why quinine from Peruvian Bark could cure malaria, he discovered "like cures like."
A substance which can create symptoms in a well person could take away the symptom in a person already exhibiting the symptoms. Hahnemann ingested the quinine while well and found it gave him the symptoms of malaria.
He put into practice the law of similars Hippocrates mentioned.
Dr. Hahnemann was the first to research and personally experiment with numerous substances in order to document and standardize the science.
DO REMEDIES TREAT SYMPTOMS?
It isn't that the remedy cancels out the symptoms. The remedy stimulates your body's vital force and it is this living, intelligent energy called the Dynamis, that creates healing. In Chinese medicine this force is called Chi, in Ayurvedic medicine it is called Prana, and in Osteopathy is called The Breath of Life.
WHAT CAN HOMEOPATHY TREAT?
The best answer is that theoretically any condition can be cured by homeopathy. HOWEVER, it depends on many factors such as the patient's family history, how long the condition has been present and the nature of other treatments the patient has had for this and other conditions.
It also depends on the willingness of the patient to describe him/herself in intimate terms, telling more than just a list of symptoms.
Here are some conditions which have been successfully treated using homeopathy; abscesses, acne, ADHD, allergies, anxiety, arthritis, asthma, autoimmune diseases, back pain, bronchitis, cervical dysplasia, Covid-19 (non-hospitalized patients), Chronic Covid-19 symptoms, Covid-19 vaccine reactions, chronic fatigue, chronic Lyme disease, conjunctivitis, dandruff, developmental delay, depression, diarrhea, diverticulitis, eczema, folliculitis, gallstones, genital herpes, GERD, Grave's Disease, headaches (migraine and tension), head trauma, hemorrhoids, hiccough, hypothyroidism, influenza, injuries of many kinds, insomnia, kidney stones, Lyme disease (acute and chronic), mastitis, mononucleosis, myocarditis, neck pain, otitis externa, otitis media, PID, PMS, PTSD, pancreatitis, pharyngitis, pneumonia, psoriasis, seizure disorder, sinusitis, thrombophlebitis, trauma, UTI, varicose veins, warts.......
WHAT ABOUT DISEASE LIKE MS, PARKINSON'S, ETC?
Historically, homeopathy has been used in the treatment of neurological conditions such as these. However, the best results are achieved at the very beginning of the illness. The more time that has passed after the initial diagnosis, the less likely homeopathy will help.
WHY CAN'T I TAKE HERBS AND OTHER TREATMENTS AT THE SAME TIME?
Some herbs and aromatic substances can directly decrease the effectiveness of homeopathic remedies. More importantly, however, other treatments that relieve or remove symptoms make it difficult for the homeopathic physician to fully appreciate the totality of your symptoms and thus find the proper homeopathic remedy. The goal in homeopathy is always cure, not just temporary removal of symptoms. One should also understand that not all medications can be stopped. Some patients cannot safely stop their current conventional medications and thus the goal would be to gradually reduce but not eliminate their medications.
