Homeopathy is a proven and effective method of gently addressing health concerns, both chronic (long lasting) and acute (brief, everyday illnesses). While chronic illnesses require professional treatment, everyday acutes can be gently and effectively treated at home with little homeopathic training. Moreover, these sorts of disorders are the ones that mainstream medicine has few solutions for. Please use our free, easy-to-use guide to addressing some of the common health concerns that even the healthiest families encounter. Learning to use homeopathy in this way is empowering and satisfying as no one likes to stand by and watch loved ones suffer. Our free guides will provide you with the guidance to make intelligent choices for treating the disorders listed below. Please be aware that any disorders that persist, and do not respond to homeopathic treatment within 24 hours, or that are of concern should be seen by a primary health care professional.

What is Health? The medical model has been most prominent in North America throughout the 20th century. Most medical professionals view the body as something that requires fixing when broken. The emphasis primarily lies on the physical disease of a patient and on individual systems…not the body as a whole. The mental/emotional/social state of a patient is often ignored and preventative measures are not considered when it comes to discussing good health. The medical model therefore measures health by the absence of physical disease and a high level of physical functioning. This model is not an accurate one.

Ear Infections – Otitis media is a middle ear infection that is very common in children. There are two types: Acute Otitis Media (AOM) and Otitis Mediawith Efusion (OME).

What exactly happens in the middle ear to cause an infection? The Eustachian Tube becomes dysfunctional due to inflammation of the surrounding membranes and adenoids (from an infection or allergies).
