Homeopathic remedies are derived from vegetable, mineral and animal
substances and are used to treat a wide range of conditions,
including acute infections, injuries, chronic diseases and emotional
disorders. Remedies are carefully selected, according to each
individual case, to stimulate the body's own defence systems to heal
body, mind and spirit in harmony, without toxic side effects.
Homeopathic remedies work by stimulating the body's own healing
abilities. The same homeopathic principles were applied in the
1800's when vaccination was discovered. The disease substance from
the cowpox were injected into humans to prevent smallpox. Cowpox and
smallpox, two different diseases, shared some similarities. This is
an example of how vaccination is based on homeopathic principles.
