ONTARIO COLLEGE OF HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE

WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY

Homeopathy has been used successfully worldwide for over 200 years and is recognised as the second most widely used form of medicine in the world today.  Homeopathy is a holistic medicine that is non-invasive, gentle, quick, safe and effective.  It is used to treat individuals with both chronic as well as acute health concerns.

Homeopathy uses very small doses of natural substances to stimulate the body’s self-healing abilities. As a holistic practice which treats the symptoms of the body and mind as one, our goal is to see improvements in our patients on all levels of function. Homeopaths understand that the mind, body, and spirit are linked and that disease is expressed through symptoms, thereby calling for an all encompassing approach to healing.

Homeopathy is safe for pregnant women, infants, the elderly, and those who are highly sensitive to pharmaceutical medicines. Since this medicine treats the person and not the disease, it can help people with many different conditions including. Homeopathic medicine can also be used preventatively to build a strong body/mind and spirit so that each person can live their lives optimally.

Homeopathic Medicine is eco-friendly, cost effective and easily accessible!

The key to a successful prescription includes:

  • Understanding a patient’s symptoms
  • Recognizing the physical signs of an internal imbalance
  • Listening to the patient in a non-judgemental and confidential way
  • Being able to bring the patient to a place of freedom so that they can express themselves openly and confidently
  • Administering one remedy at a time to address the totality of the symptoms

A carefully chosen single remedy can be all that is required for a dramatic improvement in the patient’s health.
