The word homeopathy is from Greek, meaning “similar suffering or feeling”, thus homeopathy treats by way of the use of ‘similars’. Homeopathic medicine is in pill, powder or tincture form and the treatments are called remedies. They work by gently boosting the natural energy of the body and are very safe. There is no danger of addiction or toxicity, so they can be administered during pregnancy, and given to babies, infants and children.
As with osteopathic treatments, the remedies work by stimulating the body’s own healing capacity.
