What is Homeopathic Medicine?
Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine developed over 200 years ago by the German medical doctor, Samuel Hahnemann. It has helped millions of sick people around the world.
In Homeopathic Medicine, natural substances are used in minute doses to strengthen the body’s own ability to overcome disease and restore balance. It is believed that the body has a vital force that is capable of powerful healing. Homeopathic medicines stimulate the natural healing ability, encouraging the body to use its own resources to heal itself. This results in a stronger, healthier person who is now less susceptible to illness.
Homeopathic Medicines or “Remedies” are derived from plant, animal and mineral sources. They are completely safe, FDA approved and they are available over the counter.
In Homeopathy the real cause of disease is not the microorganism (bacteria, virus, spirochete etc.) or physical environment, instead these are considered triggers of disease symptoms. The true cause lies in the person’s inherent susceptibility to infection and to negative environmental factors. This susceptibility provides a fertile environment for microorganisms to flourish. At the same time the person’s defenses are down, their vitality drops which causes her/him to be more easily affected by negative environment factors. The goal is restore the natural ecology of the body and improve resistance to disease from the inside out.
Homeopathy in Today’s Medical Practice
Homeopathic Medicine is widely accepted around the world. It is one of the fastest growing medical systems. In France 40% of Doctors recommend Homeopathic remedies, 38% in Germany, 42% in UK, 50% in Norway, 45% Netherlands, 100 million people in India rely on homeopathy exclusively etc. In US a recent survey by the American Medical Association showed that 1/6th of all physicians refer patients to qualified Homeopaths. In Ontario Homeopathic Medicine is practiced by licensed Naturopathic Doctors (since 1925) and Homeopaths (recently licensed). As a result of wide pubic interest in homeopathic medicine, the Ontario Ministry of Health officially added (2015) homeopathic medicine to the Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA 1991). Homeopaths in Ontario are therefore, licensed and regulated by a government certified board (http://www.collegeofhomeopaths.on.ca/)
