Homeopathy is a 200 year old system of healing that is applied to treat a wide array of medical concerns. It focuses on stimulating the body to heal itself, using very small doses of organic substances.

Homeopathy is based on the principle “similia similibus curentur” or “like heals like.” This principle states that if a given substance produces a certain effect on a healthy person, then, this same substance in an extremely diluted form can actually cure these symptoms in an unhealthy person. For instance, coffee can make it difficult for a person to fall asleep. However, the homeopathic coffea—made up of one part caffeine to 1,000,000,000,000 parts water—can cure insomnia. This is the same principal that is used in mainstream medicine, most notably for allergy desensitization and for vaccines.

Homeopathy is a treatment that is safe for use on anyone including pregnant and breastfeeding women as well as infants. Further, it does not interact with any medications.

At A New Leaf, we combine homeopathy with many other approaches to give the patient an individualized treatment plan.
