Holistic Approach to Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathy is a system of medicine that uses highly diluted substances that are specifically prepared, to induce the body's self-healing mechanisms. These substances are derived from plants, animals, minerals, synthetic chemicals, or conventional drugs.

Only a very small amount of the substance is used, and is then involved in a special preparation process. What results is a remedy that has been tested on healthy individuals to determine its effects.
