Homeopathic medicine is one of the world’s safest and most profoundly curative systems of medicine. Homeopathic therapy is an effective way to manage a broad range of “physical, mental and emotional conditions” (internal link to “Conditions We Treat” webpage), including common health concerns of childhood, pregnancy, and postpartum; “colds and flus” (internal link to “Keeping Healthy During the Cold and Flu Season” webpage); ailments following a grief, shock or injury; and areas where we seem to get “stuck” mentally or emotionally with specific sets of symptoms. The whole person is always considered when a remedy is selected, and these remedies are non-toxic because of their extensive dilutions. When prescribed appropriately, these remedies are gentle yet profoundly healing and curative due to their energetic nature. Health conditions that are unresponsive to conventional medicine have been ameliorated by homeopathy.
How Do I Receive Homeopathic Remedies in Markham?
Dr. Camille Nghiem-Phu, Naturopathic Doctor, runs a Hahnemannian Homeopathic Clinic in Markham, which is the most classical approach to this healing modality. A prescription requires a thorough review and analysis of your health history and current concerns, followed by careful follow-up. The most profoundly healing remedy will be the one that best matches the totality of your symptoms, including physical, mental and emotional concerns. Because this type of medicine is so individualized, keep in mind that there is no one remedy “x” for condition “y”. (This is part of the reason why conventional randomized controlled trials are not an appropriate way to study homeopathy). Here, we are treating people, not just diseases. Dr. Nghiem-Phu will provide you with instructions about how to take your remedy and when to follow up to ensure your healing is progressing well.
Discovery & History of Homeopathy
Homeopathic Medicine was discovered in Germany by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, MD (1755-1843) a physician and scholar who abandoned the harmfulness and inefficiency of the practice of medicine and chose to earn a living translating books, as he was proficient in several languages. Through this work, in 1790, Hahnemann observed that the plant Cinchona was used in the treatment of malaria symptoms, and yet the same plant, when given to a healthy person, could produce symptoms similar to those of malaria, including intermittent fever and chills. This observation suggested a new medical principle: “like cures like” or “similia similibus curentur”.
Hahnemann went on to conduct numerous studies called provings, administering smaller and smaller doses of natural substances to healthy people and observing the symptoms they produced. Upon administration of these homeopathic remedies to sick people with similar symptoms, the most “similar” remedy was found to have curative effects.
