In our homeopathic clinic In Peterborough Ontario, we practice Hahnemannian homeopathy, the original form of homeopathic treatment involving the matching of a patient’s physical and emotional symptoms with the most appropriate of some 3000 homeopathic remedies.
What is homeopathy?
The word Homeopathy is derived from the Greek words homeo, meaning “similar,” and pathos, meaning “suffering” (such as the pathology of a disease). Homeopathy operates on a law of nature - “like cures like”, and has been used clinically for more than 200 years. So what does “like cures like” mean? Hippocrates talked about it. It means that a patient suffering from symptoms can be treated and cured by doses of a substance (mineral, animal or plant) capable of producing similar symptoms in a healthy person.
Five hundred million people use homeopathy in the world – which according to the World Health Organization makes it the 2nd most commonly used form of alternative medicine.
Homeopathy can help strengthen the body to fight short-term illnesses such as colds, flu, earache, sore throats, and more. For chronic conditions like asthma, depression, autism, or arthritis
