What is Veterinary Homeopathy?
Veterinary Homeopathy is founded on the premise that symptoms seen in a patient are the result of an imbalance or disharmony in the life force (the innate self healing mechanism of the body).
Rather than divide the symptoms into separate diagnosis and prescribe a different medicine for each diagnosis, the veterinary homeopath seeks to find the common cause of all the symptoms and to find the single medicine which will bring the entire patient to health and wholeness.
With this premise, there is no condition in any patient which is not treatable with veterinary homeopathy.
The homeopathic approach catalyzes health in the patient, resulting in a patient who is not compromised by chronic, recurring disease.
By prescribing a single homeopathic medicine or natural remedy, the veterinary homeopath can avoid the complications caused by multiple concurrent medications so common in conventional medicine today.
Homeopathy, differs from conventional drug therapy, in that it actually triggers healing in the body. Healing is often characterized by discharges and a short increase in symptoms as the body focuses it's energy on healing the area of concern. This is quite different than the suppression of discharges that is common with allopathic (drug based) therapy.
Veterinary Homeopathic medications are called remedies. These natural remedies are specially prepared medicinal substances that have been serially diluted to reduce toxicity while increasing their healing qualities.
