Homeopathic Medicine is the most frequently used medicine in the world, with the exception of the United States. In most countries the medicines can be found over-the-counter. If you are traveling, it is good to have a working knowledge of homeopathic remedies for minor illnesses and injuries. It is estimated that 50% of European physicians use homeopathy in their practice. The Queen of England and the Royal Family have endorsed and used homeopathic medicine for three centuries.
Homeopathy, from Greek home (meaning similar) and pathos (meaning suffering) is a system of medicine based on treating like with like. The theory that like can be treated with like can be traced back as far as Hypocrites (468 -377 BC), but it wasn't until the work of Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) that the theory developed into a usable practice.
Today's practitioners use homeopathy to stimulate the person's immune system or as an adjunct to western medicine. For instance, you may recognize Arnica for bruising and sprains, Histamin issued for allergies, and Apis issued for allergic swelling. Dr. McCaffrey is trained in Clinical Homeopathy and prescribes homeopathic medicine in addition to western medical prescriptions, not in place of them.
