Homeopathy is a natural, nontoxic therapeutic system of healing that assists in the inherent ability of the body to heal itself. Homeopathic medicines or "remedies" use very small amounts of plant, mineral or animal substances to stimulate a person's innate healing ability and to strengthen the entire system.
Homeopathic remedies are particularly effective for depression, anxiety, allergies, infections, gynecological concerns, skin conditions, digestive problems, and a variety of chronic and acute conditions including colds and flu. Initial appointments in homeopathic team care are 1¾ hours and follow-up appointments are one hour. You might be referred to homeopathy from your naturopathic care team, but you can also request it yourself.
