More than 200 years old, homeopathy is based on the idea that specific natural substances are able to stimulate the body’s healing mechanisms, resulting in self healing. Although homeopathy is the second most used form of medicine worldwide, allopathic or traditional medicine is most common in the U.S.
The foundation of homeopathy is “like treats like and less is more.” To prevent causing or increasing symptoms, the ingredients are highly diluted to remind the body to heal itself. Vaccination and allergy shots are a form of homeopathy. As long as the right homeopathic remedy is taken, healing will occur. It can take time to find the natural ingredients that match all the symptoms and promote healing within the body.
Homeopathy is safe and normally based on natural ingredients. It works in harmony with the body and is not addictive. Once relief is felt, the treatment is stopped because homeopathy addresses the cause, not the symptoms. Homeopathic medications are safe for ages 2 and up.
It is recommended that children under 2 years old and women who are pregnant or nursing consult a health care professional before starting a homeopathic medication.
Homeopathic medicines are prepared and marketed in accordance with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Compliance Policy Guide No. 7132.15. Manufacturers of homeopathic medicines are registered with the FDA and licensed by state regulatory agencies.
Homeopathic products are required legally to tell you the benefits and indications of such products, unlike supplements which cannot. The FDA does require that homeopathic remedies meet certain legal standards for strength, purity, and packaging. Only products for self-limiting conditions (minor health problems like a cold or headache that go away on their own) can be sold without a prescription. Most natural products and vitamins are not FDA-Regulated.
Homeopathic medication treats the whole person unlike traditional medication. Many natural ingredients treat a variety of symptoms. However, no one knows exactly how homeopathy works. Some homeopathic medications work quickly, while others require regular use before healing is noticed.
