Homeopathy Supports The
Body To Heal Itself
Homeopathy look at symptoms
as a way that the body tries to heal itself.
Homeopathy believes that a
Vital Force or “life force” animates all living things and if it is distuned,
disease or illness is the result.
Anytime that symptoms are
suppressed with antibiotics, anti-fungal creams, steroid creams, ointments,
etc., the body is not assisted with natural healing.
We call this suppression of
symptoms. When the symptoms are suppressed, the imbalance is driven even
deeper and more permanently into the person, and at deeper organ levels.
medicine always works in this suppressive way by using surgery, antibiotics,
drugs, removals of warts, polyps, growths, tumors, etc.
Homeopathy does not! It
helps lift suppression and assists the body in healing – both in mind, body
and spirit, naturally.
