Can homeopathy help with [my problem]?
Homeopathy has been used with every acute and chronic issue that a person can have in its 200 year history. Everyone has an unique health history, with unique symptoms. As homeopathy treats the whole person, there is no diagnosis or symptoms that are excluded. It is important to state that there is never a guarantee that homeopathy will cure an issue. Results vary depending on the individual case, how long you have had an issue, and your general state of health. Even with an extreme diagnosis and a diminished state of health, homeopathy can often alleviate pain and increase the quality of life.
How is homeopathy different from herbs or supplements?
Homeopathy is not herbal medicine, although it is often mistaken as such. While many remedies are made from plants, they are not similar due to the method of preparation and dilution. There is no risk of overdosing or toxic side effects from homeopathic remedies.
What is Classical Homeopathy?
Classical homeopaths are trained to give a single remedy at a time. Classical homeopaths select the best indicated remedy, and give it in the smallest effective dose to provide gentle and rapid healing. Combination remedies such as those found in some health food stores aim to treat a disease rather than the individual, and are not considered "Classical”.

These studies have been published in medical publications such as Lancet, Pediatrics, Annals of Internal Medicine and more.
