WHAT IS IT?
Homeopathy is a safe, effective system of natural medicine, used by millions of people all over the world for more than 200 years. Homeopathy is based on the principle that “like cures like.” If a substance can cause symptoms of disease in a healthy person, then it can cure a sick person suffering from similar symptoms. If a person has hay fever, with watery eyes and burning nasal discharge, Allium cepa, a tiny dose of onion, can be used. It is specially prepared by a homeopathic pharmacy in accordance to FDA-approved guidelines. Remember that onion being cut up causes watery eyes and a burning nasal discharge.
Homeopathy regards symptoms as the body's healthy attempt to restore itself to balance. A homeopath will choose a remedy that supports the symptoms-rather than opposing them or suppressing them.
Over 200 years old, homeopathy is today practiced throughout the world. The queen of England is attended by a homeopathic physician. Mother Teresa administered homeopathic medicines in her hospitals in Calcutta.Unfortunately, there are some Bible Believers that, though well intended, think anything they do not understand is Satanic or connected with unclean spirits or Witch Doctors. There are many simple minded people who will blindly follow these type of people and miss out on these natural remedies. Since Charales Spurgeon and his son Thomas used them, they too are probably "full of the devil."
Many plastic surgeons in the USA now give the homeopathic remedy Arnica to their patients before surgery.
WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY?
The principles of homeopathy were developed into a system of medicine by the German physician, Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843).Homeopathy spread quickly through Europe and the U.S.
ARE HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINES SAFE?
These medicines are remarkably free from side effects and are among the safest preparations known to medical science. Since only tiny amounts are needed to stimulate the body's own natural defense system, they are administered in the smallest possible doses. They are safely used with newborns, children, adults and animals. There are no known or suspected contraindications or drug interactions between homeopathic and conventional medications. They are available over-the-counter, at health-food stores, by mail or online.
HOW ARE THE MEDICINES PRESCRIBED?
The remedy is picked on the total symptoms presented by the patient. Any remedy can be used for any condition if the symptoms generated by the remedy match the symptoms experienced by the patient. If the right remedy is found, the relief is very quick. It is like a miracle.
HOW ARE HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINES TAKEN?
Homeopathic medicines are taken sublingually: Placed under the tongue and held there for a minute or two so that the medication may pass through the mucus membranes and into the tiny blood vessels lining the area. In this manner, they enter the metabolism in the stomach.

I have used homeopathy for years. I love these remedies, as I have seen them work over and over again. I have had results in my own life with relief from nausea, moodiness, bruising, intestinal infections, urinary problems, etc. I would not recommend these if I did not use them myself. I wonder how I lived without them.
I also treat my animals with it. I have had very sick cats that the vet sent home to die. They lived for years and died with a better quality of life through it all.
