What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy, or homeopathic medicine, is an entire medical system that began in Europe and has been practiced in the United States from the early 19th century. Homeopathic medicine is based on three principles:
1). LIKE CURES LIKE- the concept of "like cures like" dates even farther back, and may have been suggested by Hippocrates around 400 BC when he prescribed a small dose of mandrake root to treat mania, knowing it produces mania in much larger doses. Essentially, a substance that produces a certain set of symptoms in a healthy person can cure a sick person experiencing those same symptoms.
2). MINIMUM DOSE = EFFECTIVENESS & SAFETY - unlike synthetic drugs, homeopathic medicine is believed to be more effective when its active ingredient is diluted. In fact, homeopathic medicine gains increased effectiveness with each additional dilution-succussion step. As a result, the safety profile of the medicine increases with increased dilution, which is of utmost importance when dealing with a children's range.
3). INDIVIDUALIZED MEDICINES - homeopathic treatment should be tailored to each person. Practitioners select medicines based on a total picture of the patient, including physical symptoms and also lifestyle, emotional and mental states, amongst other factors. In our case Dr. Robert Melo, a leading medical doctor and member of the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia Convention of the United States (HPCUS - the organization that maintains the policies and procedures of the official compendium for homeopathic drugs in the US), has carefully tailored each product's ingredients to be most effective and safe for children in each usage case.
Our homeopathic medicine range is produced in an FDA GMP facility that is certified to produce highly regulated products up to and including injectables. Dr. Talbot’s Homeopathic medicines are the safe and effective choice for all ages.
