I chose classical homeopathy as the area of focus for my naturopathic practice because it is highly individualized to the person being treated. Homeopathy works with your body’s symptoms to effect cure rather than suppressing symptoms as with prescription medications (allopathy).
In classical homeopathy, a single medicine is administered followed by a waiting period. This is especially true for chronic conditions which usually develop over a longer period of time and will often require an extended case-taking session. Very often, the homeopathic prescription will be changed as the case progresses to coincide with changes in mental, emotional and physical symptoms.
Homeopathy is safe and effective and can be used with or without prescription medicines. Homeopathic medicines are also one of the few treatments that can be administered to pregnant or lactating individuals. Following is a partial list of conditions (sometimes associated with various mental, emotional or behavioral disorders) that can be treated:
- Adrenal fatigue
- Allergies (food and environmental)
- Autoimmune disorders
- Benign prostatic hypertrophy (enlarged prostate)
- Crohn’s disease
- Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
- Digestive disorders
- Ear infections
- Epstein-Barr virus (chronic fatigue)
- Hand-foot-and-mouth disease
- Hormonal imbalances
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Menstrual disorders
- Sinusitis (sinus infections)
- Urinary tract infections
- Upper respiratory tract infections
MENTAL /EMOTIONAL DISORDERS
- ADD and ADHD
- Bipolar disorder
- Obsessive compulsive disorder
- Panic Attacks
- Posttraumatic stress disorder
Homeopathy can also effectively treat a wide range of chronic auto-immune conditions (depending on intensity and duration) such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Celiac Disease, Grave’s Disease (overactive thyroid), Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (underactive thyroid), Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Chronic Fatigue and Sjogren’s Syndrome.
Some individuals are more responsive to homeopathic medicines than others. Acute conditions will usually respond quickly to treatment and require a shorter case-taking session than chronic diseases. Complete healing may occur over an extended period of time in chronic diseases especially if they have developed over many years and suppressive drug therapy has been implemented. Generally speaking, homeopathy is appropriate for all age groups from infants to the elderly.
