Homeopathy is a very unique healing art that stimulates the body’s core vitality to rid itself of illness and promote wellness.

Therefore, they do not have the toxic effects associated with many conventional medications or other substances. They are, however, powerful energetic stimuli and must be used with discretion. Sometimes, as part of the curative process, a person will experience a temporary intensification of symptoms.
