Homeopathy is a therapeutic method that works by using a small dose of a substance to help stimulate the body's healing forces.
Homeopathy recognizes the intimate connection between the mind and body. Homeopathic therapy always takes into account the person's unique hereditary background, physical, and emotional aspects instead of isolated symptoms of the body. It then aims to strengthen the individual so that their own vital force, the body's innate intelligence, is stimulated by individualized homeopathic remedies to bring about balance and health.
Homeopathy is a psychological approach to treating disease. A primary assumption is that given the ripe hereditary background, if an emotional setback or imbalance could create or exacerbate an unhealthy physical condition, therefore, when these aspects are treated, physical health can return. One key concept in homeopathy is summed up in the phrase "Never Well Since." This refers to the experience, common in many people's lives, of a particular disturbing life event or an ongoing unhealthy situation during development, after which their emotional and/or physical well-being was significantly altered. Homeopathy is well suited for healing the underlying factors which derailed the person from the natural healthy course of their life.
Individuals seeking homeopathy often begin with symptoms such as depression, stress, anxiety, sleep disturbances, extreme fatigue, addictive behaviors, and a wide range of physical symptoms. Many children with hyperactivity or symptoms belonging to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may benefit from homeopathy to feel calmer and more in control of their habitual activities.
The principle of "the Law of Similars" or "like cures like" that was mentioned by Hippocrates two thousand years ago describes the core of homeopathy. Samuel Hahnemann, M.D. (1755-1843) of Germany founded this therapeutic method based on this law. Dr. Hahnemann proved that a substance that could cause symptoms in a healthy person can heal anyone experiencing the same symptoms with the same substance in micro doses prepared through a scientific process that dilutes the substance. Dr. Luc Montagnier, the French virologist who won the Nobel Prize in 2008 for discovering the AIDS virus, has performed experimental research that confirms that the way that homeopathic remedies are prepared, where substances undergo sequential dilution with vigorous shaking in-between each dilution, the electromagnetic signals of the original medicine remains in the water and has dramatic biological effects.

Homeopathy is a safe and effective system of healing, used by an estimated 500
million people worldwide. The World Health Organization cites homeopathy as the
second most widely used form of therapy in the world and as one of the systems of
healthcare that should be integrated worldwide with conventional medicine in order to
provide adequate care. A breakthrough report by the Swiss government in 2012 validated
that homeopathy is effective and that homeopathy consultations should be reimbursed
by Switzerland's national health insurance program. The interior ministry of Switzerland has announced plans to give five complementary therapies including homeopathy the same status as conventional medicine. Homeopathy will acquire the same status as conventional medicine by May 2017 when it comes to health insurance.
Because of the highly individualized approach to each person and his/her
condition, a partnership between the homeopathic consultant and the client is
essential. I am committed to creating this partnership with every client I work with.
