HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE

A UNIQUE APPROACH

Homeopathy is an alternative or complementary medical system that takes a different approach than conventional medicine in diagnosing, classifying, and treating medical problems. It has been utilized for over 200 years, building a remarkable safety record and generating a great body of knowledge. Today, homeopathy is used by millions of patients all over the world in more than 65 countries. In 1994, the World Health Organization noted that homeopathy had been integrated into the national health care systems of such countries as Germany, France, the United Kingdom, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Mexico.

Unlike traditional pharmaceutical medicine, which often suppresses the natural defenses of the immune system, homeopathy seeks to stimulate the body's innate defense mechanisms and processes to prevent or treat illness. Homeopathy is a unique therapeutic approach that views the state of being unwell as a holistic disturbance in the equilibrium of the total being, as demonstrated by the symptoms an individual experiences. Patients use homeopathy to address a wide range of concerns, from prevention to treatment of injuries and diseases. Both acute and chronic medical conditions can be successfully treated with homeopathic medicine.

Homeopathic medicines, also called remedies, are micro-dosed substances frequently derived from plants and mineral substances. They are completely different from herbal and vitamin supplements in both the way they are made and the way they help the patient improve. They have no known side effects and do not interact with other medications or any other form of treatment. Therefore, in serious cases, when a patient’s illness requires many different approaches, homeopathic medicines can be administered in conjunction with traditional pharmaceuticals. All homeopathic medicines are regulated by the FDA.

Treatment in homeopathy is tailored to each patient. Dr. Elmaleh selects remedies based on a total picture of the patient, ranging from physical symptoms to lifestyle, emotional, environmental, and psychosocial factors.
