Homeopathy is based on the theory of "like cures like". Similar to the philosophy of vaccines, a patient is prescribed a substance, that when taken in its pure form, will give the same symptom picture that the patient has. This has a gentle, guiding effect to help direct the body‘s healing ability.
Homeopathic medicines are different than traditional medicines. Since they are used in minute doses, there are no side effects, are safe for infants, children and pregnant women, and can be used along with traditional medicines.

Homeopathy treats not just physical symptoms, but emotional and psychological symptoms as well.
