What is Homeopathy?
If you’ve ever used Hyland’s Teething Tabs or Baby ColdCalm for your little one you have used homeopathy. I’ve been unknowningly using homeopathy for over a decade now in my desire to use more natural healing modalities, but more recently have been using effective homeopathic remedies for just about every ailment in our home. I have had a stocked cupboard of Boiron Oscillococcinum since Covid, and use ColdCalm, SinusCalm & ThroatCalm for the seasonal junk that comes through our home during the cold & flu season; but have found that individual remedies have been incredibly helpful.
Homeopathy (or homoeopathy) is a 200-year-old form of alternative medicine that claims to stimulate a healing response and strengthen the body’s ability to heal itself. It is a holistic system of medicine based on the theory of treating ‘like with like’. This means that a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy individual can be used to treat similar symptoms in a sick person. Homeopathic remedies are highly diluted in water or alcohol and work to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.
Homeopathy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, from allergies and asthma to depression and anxiety.
These are two homeopathy kits I use for my own family to treat and/or cure a plethora of illnesses & injuries. We have used homeopathy for everything from the common cold, flu & Covid to body ache, mastitis, conjunctivitis & even skin rashes on our dog. In all of my cases of mastitis I have been able to clear it up quickly with the appropriate homeopathic remedies within 12 hours, and we have even seen pinkeye clear up within 24 hours.
Homeopathic medicines are chosen based on symptoms rather than specific illnesses, so please consult a physician or homeopathic practitioner if you are unsure of which remedy to use. A great resource is DrHomeo.com as well as this Quick Reference Chart: Permacharts Homeopathy Alternative Medicine Guide.
