What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is very good alternative therapy for all possible disorders. Homeopathic remedies have no side effects, and are very safe to use. Usual principle of using homeopathic remedies is to choose one or several recommended remedies for your health problem, start slowly, and see how it works. If results are not shown after reasonable period of time, switch to another remedy and start again. In some cases results are not shown overnight, it take sometimes a couple of weeks for them to show, depending of your disorder.
Homeopathy is treating individual as a whole, and trying to fix the cause of the illness or disorder, not just the symptoms of it. Homeopathic remedies are a highly diluted substance which helps and triggers the natural system of healing in your body. Homeopathy is developed by German doctor Samuel Hahnemann in 1796, and it’s been used since then.
