What is Homeopathy?
Read on to find out!
Is Homeopathy the same as Naturopathy?
While it has its own rules and systems, for the most part homeopathy is a type of treatment that can be used by ND’s, MD’s, DO’s, herbalists, midwives...or anyone in a healthcare profession.
Ok...but what are those little white pills?
Is Homeopathy new? Old? Or what?
The Flexner report also resulted in many medical schools closing down admittance to female students, and the closure of 5 out of the 7 Black medical colleges that were open at the time.
Homeopathic medicine fell by the wayside for much of the mid-20th century. It started to reemerge just a few decades ago, and has grown steadily in use and popularity. In many parts of the world (India, the UK, France) it's one of the most common forms of medicine in practice.
So…What kinds of stuff do we use homeopathy for?
In kids, I most often use homeopathy in cases of extreme tantrums, mood swings, fears and phobias, or other types of distress-related behaviors.
In adults, I use it for places where people feel “stuck” emotionally, feel like they just “aren’t themselves” anymore, or feel overwhelmed by specific thoughts and habits.
Sometimes it’s simpler than that - sometimes people just want to feel better than they do. And often times a well-chosen homeopathic remedy can help get them there.
