Naturopathic Medicine and Homeopathy
Homeopathy is a form of natural alternative medicine using diluted medicines, given mainly in tablet form, to aid the body in its natural healing process. Homeopathic remedies are prescribed based on the “like treating like” theory. For example, a red onion can cause symptoms like a runny nose, burning and red eyes in a high dose. Red onion (Allium Cepa) given in as a homeopathic remedy, will treat people with those symptoms – like treating like. Homeopathic principles have been used since 460 – 377BC, but the modern approach has been used for the past 200 years. Naturopathic Doctors receive extensive training in homeopathy, and Dr. Katie uses homeopathic remedies with many of their patients.
Homeopathy can be used for a wide variety of conditions because there are thousands of remedies covering a range of symptoms and constitutions. Dr. Katie’s specialty is prescribing homeopathic remedies for anxiety and depression, but has found this alternative approach to be very useful in treating ADHD, insomnia, colds, digestive complaints, pain, and more as well. Homeopathic remedies are diluted through a very precise method making them very safe. Homeopathy is very effective and can be used with adults, pregnant women, and children without interacting with medication.
Homeopathic remedies are prescribed specifically for each person. 5 people may all have anxiety, but a different remedy may be required for each. Our doctors will take the time to understand what your experience is like.
