Homeopathy is a medical science developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), a German physician. It is based on the principle that “like cures like”.
Homeopathy is a healing modality in which specially prepared natural substances are used to stimulate the body’s innate healing capacity. It is extremely safe and gentle and yet can produce dramatic results.
People are routinely amazed at the powers of homeopathy – Homeopathic remedies can work wonders with nearly any type of condition – physical, mental, and/or emotional.
Homeopathic remedies are made from plant, mineral, and animal substances that have been prepared in a very specific process involving dilution and succusion (vigorous shaking/agitation). This process creates products which are much gentler than the crude substance and yet can have profound healing effects on the human body.
Homeopathy is practiced extensively throughout Europe, North and South America, and Asia. It is integrated into the national health services of the U.K., Germany, France, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Brazil, and Mexico. In many countries homeopathy is a regulated medical specialty (like cardiology, oncology, etc).
Herbal Medicine is still the first choice for addressing health concerns in many cultures, being successfully used for thousands of years. Every culture has its own style of Herbalism, such as Indian Ayurvedic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Herbs are just food in a capsule…. If they are pure an unadulterated. When nutritional needs can not be met by the diet or an illness is to the point where the tissues need extra support to heal, herbs are the next best solution. Herbs do not have mystical powers, however they are typically little powerhouses packed full of Nutrition. In natural medicine we use herbs to provide relief and speed up the healing process. At PNW we prefer to recommend herbs that have no fillers, isolates or enhancers.
