Homeopathy is one of the gentlest forms of medicine a naturopathic physician will used. It is based off of the treatment principle of "like treats like". What this means is in each homeopathic remedy there is a minute amount of natural occurring substances that share similar energetic properties as the condition being treated. By taking a homeopathic remedy the body is given a nudge, or wake up call so to speak, to start doing what it innately knows how to do, but just wasn't. Which is using it's built in healing system to promote balance and healing.
