The highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle, and permanent restoration of health.

Homeopathy 101

Homeopathy is non-invasive, natural, body-friendly, and holistic which works by gently stimulating the innate healing power of the body and strengthening the immune system.  Homeopathy recognizes that physical disease often has mental and emotional components, so a homeopathic diagnosis includes physical symptoms, emotional and psychological conditions, and the person’s constitution.  The homeopath assesses each person’s unique state of health and addresses health conditions with a personally matched homeopathic remedy.

Homeopathic remedies provide relief to both physical and emotional conditions and approach the person as a whole: Mind, body and soul.  The remedies, made from natural substances, can be safely used by anyone including infants, children, the elderly, and even animals! Homeopathy uses highly diluted, specially prepared doses of natural substances found naturally in the animal, mineral, and plant kingdoms to trigger the body’s self-healing mechanisms in a comprehensive manner.

Homeopathy was developed in Germany and has helped people globally for over 200 years. According to the World Health Organization, it is the fastest growing healthcare modality in the world as millions of health consumers sidestep drugs and surgery to find health and vitality through the use of homeopathy.

How Does It Work?
When the body or mind is out of balance, it produces symptoms and abnormal functions known as disease (dis-ease). Because everyone experiences disease differently, the trained homeopath works directly with you to understand how (and why) disease works in you.

This may sound a bit esoteric, but consider the last time your care provider asked you what conditions or circumstances made your acid reflux better or worse? Or the last time your provider connected your UTI’s to trauma, fright, or anger?

Homeopathy recognizes that, unlike a car whose bumper has been dented by impact and where the damage stays confined to the area of the bumper, the human body absorbs and responds to stimuli, trauma, disease, emotions, and toxins much more comprehensively. Accordingly, the homeopath considers the whole person, not just immediately apparent symptoms, to find and uproot disease.

Homeopathy: A Safe, Non-Toxic, Gentle Approach to Wellness
Homeopathic remedies are powerful yet gentle, natural substances drawn from the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms and only found organically in and on earth.  

These remedies are safe and effective and can be used safely in conjunction with any conventional medicine you may already be taking. All homeopathic remedies are highly diluted, non-toxic preparations made by homeopathic pharmacies in accordance with the U.S. Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia, and approved by the FDA.

Please note: Herbs, essential oils, cleanses, vitamins, or other ingestible supplements often wrongly are called “homeopathic.”  While these products may provide benefit to you, they are not homeopathic. They are more accurately home and natural approaches.

Did you know?

Fact: Homeopathy is a school of natural medicine that has been widely practiced over the last 200 years. At one time it was one of two dominant schools of medicine in the Western world. 
In the late 1800’s there were more than twenty homeopathic medical schools in the United States. A few of these schools still exist today as allopathic medical schools including Hahnemann Medical School, Boston University, and New York Medical College.

Fact: In Europe, South America, India, and beyond, homeopathy is formally recognized and used alongside allopathic medical practices.

Fact: From 1894-1898, the Denver College and Homeopathic Hospital was located in the Pioneer Building at 1509 Larimer.  A new hospital was then built in 1898 at Park Avenue and Humboldt Street in Denver.  Dr. E. C. Tennant was instrumental in establishing the hospital.  Memorabilia from the hospital can be viewed at the State Historical Library (13th and Broadway).  In 1909, the hospital was re-named and converted to allopathic medicine.

Fact: Homeopathy was the first scientific method to use double and triple-blind studies. These studies were used in what we call remedy “provings,” the homeopathic equivalent to drug testing.

Fact: Many well-known figures in history know the benefits of homeopathy, to name a few: Paul McCartney, Prince Charles, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Tina Turner, Cher, Gandhi, Dostoyevsky, Lord Yehudi Menuhin, Mark Twain, Sir William Osler, John D. Rockefeller, Dizzy Gillespie, …and many, many more.
