Why Use Homeopathy?

Homeopathic treatment is safe and effective and uses no needles and no bitter tasting or toxic preparations.

The main premise of homeopathy is that disease affects the body as a whole and small doses of nontoxic medicines treat the patient, not the disease.  Since the disease itself is not the object of the treatment, there are hundreds of medicines that might be considered, depending on the patient.  For any given medicine, there are also hundreds of diseases for which that medicine might be applicable, again, depending on the characteristics of the patient. 

Homeopathy is appropriate in the treatment of named diseases, such as parvovirus, pancreatitis, etc,  and may be considered in the treatment of any illness. Of course, some conditions  require conventional care (e.g., fractures, lacerations, and dental cleanings), however, homeopathy often can play a very useful role even in these instances.

Homeopathy also provides successful treatment options for those patients for whom there is no diagnostic name (anything “idiopathic” for instance), for diseases which are diagnosed and yet there is no conventionally recognized treatment protocol (e.g., neoplasias, behavioral issues), and for those reoccurring episodes of disease for which there is no conventional medical cure (e.g., allergies, diabetes, atopy, repeated colic, ear and urinary tract ‘infections’, autoimmune conditions).
