Homeopathy is a medical philosophy based on the idea that the body has the ability to heal itself. Homeopathic medicine views symptoms of illness as the body’s normal response to its attempt to regain health.
Homeopathy is based on the idea that if a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, giving the person a very small non-detectable amount of the same substance may stimulate the body to heal itself. In theory, a homeopathic dose enhances the body's normal healing and self-regulatory process.
Homeopathic medical doctors like Dr. Maria Choy have the unique ability to provide natural remedies as well as conventional medicine to treat patients. Treatment is highly individualized and very effective for managing side effects of medications and symptoms of a disease; however, homeopathic remedies should not replace conventional treatments for serious health concerns.
Homeopathic remedies have been used in the United States since 1938 and are considered to be safe. They come in pill or liquid form and are generally custom made for each patient.
Conditions that can be treated with homeopathy include:
- Food Allergies
- Seasonal Allergies
- Common Cold
- Arthritis Pain
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Minor Injuries (Burns, Cuts, Scrapes)
- Muscle Sprains and Strains
