Natural, Gentle, Fast Relief
Our body is a smart machine equipped with natural defenses and able to heal itself. When overexertion, modern-day stress, or environmental impacts cause our body's systems to weaken, nature provides for an array of substances that work with the body to bring back balance and strength.
Homeopathy combines the power of nature and our body's own healing propensities to prepare effective yet gentle remedies for the majority of everyday ailments. Homeopathic formulas cause no harmful side effects and no conflicts with other medicines. They are non-drowsy and non-habit forming and can be taken as soon as we feel the first signs of weakness — on empty stomachs, behind the wheel, and under performance pressure.

Origins & Principles of Homeopathy
Homeopathy was founded by German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) — contemporary of Goethe, Beethoven, and Kant — who frustrated with the harsh orthodox treatment methods of his time developed a system of medicine based on the observation of nature.
Following Hippocrates, the father of medicine (c. 460-377 B.C.) who conceived two methods of healing, one by contraries and one by similars, and influenced by Swiss physician Paracelsus (1493-1542), Hahnemann proved through extensive testing that the gentler and swifter way back to health was by treating disease with "similars".
Hahnemann observed the body's own natural healing force and that it is best stimulated when administered substances it recognizes as similar to the phenomenons that caused the illness at the outset.
Hahnemann's second most important discovery was the "minimum dose". Homeopathy allows a portion of an active ingredient that is just enough to initiate the body's own healing response. While conventional medicines contain fairly high doses for effectiveness, homeopathic treatments become powerful by being diluted — under extremely precise standards — to infinitesimal amounts or micro-doses. This is what makes homeopathic medicines a gentle, effective, and smart healthcare solution for the whole family including babies and the elderly.
For example, exposure to too much fresh onion, poison ivy, and caffeine makes our eyes water, causes a violent skin reaction, and contributes to restlessness. Homeopathic remedies made with minute doses of the same ingredients trigger the body's own defenses and relieve the suffering from allergies, remedy the skin, and help us find a good night of sleep.
Homeopathy is holistic in nature which means that each formula not only considers the specific illness but also the whole person. In this manner homeopathy bears resemblance to ancient medical systems of the East, such as Ayurvedic and Chinese medicines.
By teaching our body to heal itself, homeopathic medicines are designed toprevent future diseases and improve a person's overall long-term health.
Preparation & Regulation of Homeopathic Medicines
Homeopathic remedies are made from carefully selected all-natural mineral, botanical, and biological substances. The natural components are either soaked in a mixture of alcohol and water or pulverized and combined with milk sugar. This so-called "mother tincture" is then diluted to the decimal (X) or centesimal (C) scale.
Since 1938, homeopathic remedies have been subject to the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and strictly regulated as medicines by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In collaboration with the FDA, the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia Convention of the United States (HPCUS) has established Good Manufacturing Practice (GPM) standards and procedures for the industry and oversees the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS).
Each natural homeopathic ingredient has to be determined safe and effective to be included in the HPUS, and all homeopathic remedies have to be prepared according to stringent regulations for cleanliness, quality, and testing. In more than 70 years of regulation, micro-dosed homeopathic medicines have established an overwhelming record of safety and effectiveness. Today, the HPCUS's regulatory process is considered a model for the regulation of nutritional supplements and herbal products.
Clinically Proven Effectiveness
Homeopathic treatments have been proven effective in numerous clinical studies. Clinical trials and double-blind studies show that homeopathic medicines have a reversing effect on many acute and chronic health conditions including the flu, allergic rhinitis, asthma, arthritis, diabetes, cholesterol control, dermatological complaints, pain from injuries, migraine, stress, emotional upset, and more. In addition, a large number of research studies has been published in prominent medical journals.
