Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic Medicine is a philosophy of medicine practiced by a homeopath.Homeopathy utilizes dilute plant, animal, or mineral remedies to stimulate the Vital Force… which is the inherent self healing ability that acts to restore balance in the body.  The homeopathic remedy chosen is unique to each individual patient’s presentation.  It must take into account the totality of the patient, including the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the imbalance.

Homeopathy is extremely safe.  It is the ideal treatment method for infants, children and throughout pregnancy. Homeopathy can be used alone or in conjunction with other conventional and alternative treatments.  There is little risk of homeopathic interaction with other holistic and conventional methods.  Homeopathic medicine itself is inexpensive. There are numerous different ways to dose the remedies, so poor compliance is seldom an issue.A homeopath is an individual using homeopathically prescribed medicines as a treatment for the acute and chronic concerns of patients/clients.  The remedies are given homeopathically – meaning the specific medicine has been shown to cause a similar symptom picture in healthy individuals as the symptom picture the ill patient is presenting with.  The medicine itself is not homeopathic.A homeopath need not be a medically trained doctor.   There are lay homeopaths that do not have a medical background.  There are also homeopathic physicians, either an allopathic, osteopathic, or naturopathic physician that specializes in homeopathic medicine.

Dr. Peter Swanz is an expert in homeopathy, utilizing it to successfully treat chronic and acute conditions in patients of all ages.  He is a fellow of the Homeopathic Association of Naturopathic Physicians.
