Herbal and Homeopathic Remedies in Farmington Hills, MI
Homeopathy is a natural healthcare remedy that has been around since the late 1700s and is commonly practiced in India, Europe, and Asia. It’s based on the belief that the body can heal itself, and homeopathic health practitioners use natural substances such as plants and minerals to stimulate the healing process.
One of the tenets of homeopathy, which is Greek for “like disease,” is that “like cures like.” So herbal and homeopathic remedies include small amounts of substances that actually cause symptoms. For example, cutting onions cause the eyes to water, and so onion is used as a remedy for allergies.
Another tenet is “minimum dose,” meaning herbal and homeopathic remedies are comprised of highly diluted substances and the smallest possible dose of the active ingredient. Minimum doses allow for effective healing with no side effects.
The World Health Organization recognized homeopathy as the second largest system of therapy used in the world, benefiting millions of users every year.
