What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy treats mental, emotional and physical problems by stimulating the body’s own natural healing ability, and is one of the most effective and natural medical systems worldwide. Homeopathy seeks a permanent solution without suppressing the symptoms. Although Homeopathic treatment is often used for chronic diseases that have not responded to conventional treatment or that return after medication is discontinued, it is also effective for acute conditions such as colds, influenza or injuries. Ontario regulated Homeopathy as a health profession on April 1, 2015.

How does Homeopathy work?
Homeopathy is based on the principle of "like cures like": a substance that can cause symptoms of the disease in a healthy person can be taken in a diluted microdose to treat a sick person suffering from similar symptoms. In Homeopathy, illness is considered as a disturbance of the vital force, which is the self-sustaining force that keeps us alive and maintains homeostasis. When the vital force is disrupted, the body manifests the imbalance by various symptoms depending on the susceptibility and weakness of each individual. Homeopathy acts on this vital force by treating each patient as a whole and as a result it strengthens the patient’s own healing power.
