Herbal medicine is an effective and nourishing way to support the natural healing processes of your body for both acute and chronic conditions. An individual herb and/or a formulation of multiple specific herbs are often prescribed and tailored to your health needs. Botanical medicine prescriptions will most often be given as teas, tinctures (alcohol extracts) and glycerides (glycerine extract), but may also be in solid extract and/or capsule form.
Homeopathy is a system of natural medicine introduced and developed by a German physician, Samuel Hahnemann, at the end of the 18th century. Homeopathy is based upon the principle the “like cure like”, meaning a substance that can produce disease in a healthy person is used to elicit a healing response in someone presenting with a similar disease. Recognizing that the whole person is affected whenever there is a stress or an illness, homeopathy seeks to treat that whole person by considering the totality of an individual’s unique symptoms, mind-body-spirit. The homeopathic practitioner determines the appropriate medicine by matching the symptom picture of the homeopathic remedy to the symptom picture of the person. Homeopathic medicines, or ‘remedies’, are derived from nature, are non-toxic and highly diluted from their source substance which are mostly plants and minerals, but some are derived from animals or insects. Homeopathic remedies, are believed to stimulate the body’s innate self-regulating mechanisms to initiate the healing process.
