This past Monday, I stopped by the Samuel Hahnemann Monument right in our very own Scott Circle in Washington, DC.
Samuel Hahnemann was the founder of homeopathy, and he has his own monument right in DC! I use many homeopathic remedies with my patients in the office, whether during a treatment, or to take at home as part of their supplement regimen.
Homeopathy is a powerful form of natural medicine, based on the principle of "like cures like". Homeopathic remedies are specially prepared, potentised medicines from which all toxic effects have been removed (no side effects). Homeopathic remedies are derived from mineral, animal, and plant sources and each has different healing effects in the body, working positively on many factors of a persons health, including current symptoms, ancestral health, family issues, birth and childhood issues, emotional issues, and more.
Homeopathy is the second largest system of medicine in the world (more widely used in Europe and around the world than in the States) because they bring health benefits without the side effects and dangers inherent in conventional interventions.
Homeopathy is a truly holistic form of healing that I am proud to offer in my office. As always, I muscle test my patients for the necessity of homeopathic remedies or not.
I was happy and proud to pay my respects to this great innovator and founder of homeopathy, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann!
