Homeopathy- Natures Problem Solver
Homeopathy is becoming popular again as many are moving away from conventional medicines in efforts to reduce or eliminate side effects & long term damage that conventional medicines can cause. Now, many pet owners are trying it on their pets with great results.
Homeopathy has been used since the 18th Century. Veterinarians in the nineteenth century actually used homeopathic texts that were specifically developed for their profession. Many of todays conventional medicines are derived from natural remedies and homeopathy began to decline in popularity with the development of the pharmaceutical industry.
So, how effective is it & what does it do?
The underlying basis of homeopathy is the principle that 'like cures like'. Remedies are derived from substances found in any of the three kingdoms (animal, vegetable, and mineral) and overall has a very high success rate.
Routinely practiced in dogs, cats, horses, ruminants, birds, its use in other exotic species is growing. It requires a high degree of training & when properly applied homeopathy can eliminate the need for surgery in certain conditions, or may eliminate the need for chronic medications.
