Homeopathic medicine: The European way

Homeopathic medicine: The European way

Homeopathy dates back more than 200 years. Homeopathic medicines use very diluted dosages of plant, mineral, or animal substances to safely and gently stimulate the body’s healing abilities. These remedies are extremely gentle and safe, and are something I regularly prescribe when working with children or with those for whom pharmaceutical interactions are a concern.

Homeopathic remedies are used frequently in India and throughout Europe. I was fortunate to travel to Europe during my Naturopathic Doctor training, and it was pretty amazing to visit pharmacies that were essentially full of homeopathic remedies.
