Homeopathy is a form of natural alternative medicine with the use of 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 – i.e. like treating like. Homeopathic principles have been used since 460-377BC, but modern homeopathy has been used for the past 200 years. Naturopathic Doctors receive extensive training in homeopathy and Dr. Katie uses homeopathic remedies with many of her 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 has found homeopathy to be very effective at treating anxiety, depression, ADHD, insomnia, colds, digestive complaints, pain, and more. Homeopathic remedies are diluted through a very precise method making them much safer than pharmaceutical medications. Homeopathy is very effective when used with adults or children.
Homeopathic remedies are prescribed specifically for each person. 5 people may all have anxiety, but a different remedy may be required for each. Dr. Katie will take the time to understand what your experience is like.
