Homeopathy asserts that the body is much more than the sum of its parts and that it is important to treat the whole person or animal. Through this approach it is attempting to heal or correct imbalances which are at the root of the ailment rather than simply treating symptoms. Homeopathy is based on the principle of likes curing likes or the “law of similars” as it is sometimes called. What this means, in simple terms, is that what a substance can cause, it can cure. Homeopathy is considered one of the safest healing sciences because it administers minute portions of a remedy in order to stimulate the body’s own healing response. By restoring balance and harmony to the affected areas symptoms are simultaneously relieved and greater balance and health is encouraged in the whole body. Whether you are accustomed to using homeopathy or new to its healing properties, you will find a wide selection of remedies and helpful literature available at The Critters & Me.
