What is Homeopathy?


"It was a gentle and healing experience and I am so grateful.  Thank you Avghi. Homeopathy rules!"

"Avghi helped immensely with my morning sickness as well as my many fears that I had during my pregnancy."

Although traditional medicine has made tremendous strides, many common ailments remain mysteries. Homeopathy works on a deeper level and acts as a preventive to make sure that these illnesses cannot invade your body. Traditional medicine can suppress symptoms. Homeopathy seeks to understand the real meaning of symptoms. A homeopathic remedy encourages the body to heal the imbalance that caused those symptoms. For some, homeopathy is a welcome alternative to traditional medicine. For others, it is the first and only choice.

What the Government Says

The term homeopathy comes from the Greek words homeo, meaning similar, and pathos, meaning suffering or disease. Homeopathy is an alternative medical system. Alternative medical systems are built upon complete systems of theory and practice, and often have evolved apart from and earlier than the conventional medical approach used in the United States. A homeopath takes a different approach than conventional medicine, as practiced by holders of M.D. (medical doctor) or D.O. (doctor of osteopathy) degrees and by their allied health professionals such as physical therapists, psychologists, and registered nurses, in diagnosing, classifying, and treating medical problems.

Key Concepts of Homeopathy

Some key concepts of homeopathy include:
• Homeopathy seeks to stimulate the body's defense mechanisms and processes so as to prevent or treat illness.
• Treatment involves giving very small doses of substances called remedies that, according to homeopathy, would produce the same or similar symptoms of illness in healthy people if they were given in larger doses.
• Treatment in homeopathy is individualized (tailored to each person). Homeopathic practitioners select remedies according to a total picture of the patient, including not only symptoms but lifestyle, emotional and mental states, and other factors.
