Homeopathy & the Environment
Homeopathy is a natural, sustainable, non-polluting, and humane system of medicine offering health conscious people the opportunity to conserve energy and protect the environment.
Homeopathic remedies are produced with little equipment and very small amounts of natural resources. The considerate manufacturing process guarantees a small carbon footprint and makes sure that natural resources are never exhausted. Indeed, only a small amount of the original substance is required to create all the homeopathic medicine we need.
The waste generated by a homeopathic pharmacy is infinitely small. All of the original material is used, only natural ingredients—no chemicals—are put into homeopathic remedies, and the little waste in form of alcohol and botanical or biological matter is almost exclusively biodegradable.
Homeopathic formulas are not tested on animals. Since its beginning in the late 1700s, homeopathy has been tested on people in a reasonable state of health who willingly participate in the homeopathic proving process and can clearly express their reactions to the remedies.
Homeopathic pharmacists must look for the cleanest and freshest natural ingredients for their remedies. The homeopathic approach needs and promotes the minimal pollution of our environment and cannot afford losing habitats and plant species as extinction limits the potential development of new formulas.
