Homeopathic medicine has been employed in the use of treating patients for centuries. Most people know about Arnica as a homeopathic medicine and use it liberally for injuries and traumas, yet there are over 2,000 homeopathic remedies available for acute and chronic ailments and serve as tools in treating many conditions. Homeopathic medicine is safe, cost effective, and is often employed by the providers at Holistica as part of a comprehensive treatment protocol.
Homeopathic medicine is used to treat a patient’s deep underlying condition rather than treating the condition itself. In contrast to the use of pharmaceutical medicine for chronic ailments, where medicine must be taken for life to address a condition, homeopathy can address the deeper cause of a condition and begin to unravel the cause leading to a more permanent cure.
Homeopathy addresses the individual as a whole being, not the diagnosis the patient walks into our clinic with. Conventional medicine uses a protocol to treat a disease, but using homeopathy requires matching the remedy to the patient. In so doing, the whole patient is addressed. Homeopathy is appropriate for patients of all ages but can be particularly helpful in treating younger patients, as it is easy to administer and compliance is much higher.
