What is homeopathy ?
Sir William Osler, considered the Father of Modern Medicine, was known to say, "Asthmatics don't die, they just 'pant into old age.'" However, new research on the homeopathic treatment of asthma that has been published in The Lancet (December 10, 1994) suggests that relief is in sight for asthma sufferers.
Research conducted by professors at the University of Glasgow, Europe's largest medical school, indicates that those patients given an exceedingly small homeopathic doses of whatever substance to which they are most allergic can provide significant relief within the first week of treatment. The authors called this unique method of individualizing medicines "homeopathic immunotherapy."
BACTERIAL & VIRAL DISEASES
The reason that some people get ill and others do not is what biologists call “host resistance” and what physicians refer to as “susceptibility.” From this perspective, bacteria and virus are not the cause of disease but at best are a “co-factor” to disease.
One “take-home” message from this logical (and obvious) analysis of infectious disease is that taking a conventional antibiotic or antiviral drug may get rid of the pathogen, but they do not do anything to strengthen a person's host resistance or immune system.
Homeopathy is Excellent for Children
A growing number of parents are concerned about the potential side effects of conventional drugs and are now turning to the safer medicine--homeopathy. Infants and children respond so well to homeopathic medicines that the good results they experience often encourage the parents to try the remedies themselves.

Homeopathic philosophy strongly believes that the treatment of skin disorders by applying ointments, creams, etc, is suppressive in nature and that the disease needs to be treated from within the body, or else it will reoccur or change its shape and appear in some other form.
A special preparation process called potentisation refines the medicines to remove any toxic side-effects. It is suitable for babies and octogenarians alike and during pregnancy and menopause. However you should only take homeopathic medicines under the guidance of a qualified homeopathic practitioner if you are pregnant.
Homeopathy works by stimulating the body's own natural defense mechanism. Although gentle the results may be powerful and long lasting.
Homeopathic medicines are given either as small pleasant tasting tablets which dissolve in the mouth, or in liquid form. Granules, powders or drops are available for babies and children.
Homeopathic medicines cost surprisingly less than convensional prescription medication.
Humans respond differently to medication than animals do. All homeopathic medication is tested on healthy humans. The symptoms that a substance taken over time elicits in a healthy person, are shown to be exactly those that can be cured in a sick person suffering from those symptoms.
By boosting the body's immune system, homeopathy can help improve a person's resistance to illness and infections.
Homeopathy takes into account the whole person i.e. it is Holistic.

With over 6000 homeopathic medicines in existence and new homeopathic medicines being discovered all the time, Homeopathy is a growing art. However unlike allopathic medicine that takes drugs off the market every year as new side-effects are discovered, homeopaths still use the same medicines they were using 200 years ago with new medicines to broaden their scope. Scientists are only now discovering breakthroughs in quantum physics that helps us to develop a deeper understanding of homeopathy, as it has been use more than 200 years ago.
