Oil & Herbal Remedies, Healings and Treatment for Dogs
Homeopathic Health Products
Homeopathy is a natural, holistic system for healing. It works by eliminating the underlying imbalance in an animals' body that is causing unwanted symptoms.
Holistic is an unbrella term that includes many alternative treatments, such as acupunture, herbs, homeopathy, and essences that take into account the entire patient and not just the sick or injured component. Homeopathy is a specific type of "holistic" treatment and not all holistic treatments are "homeopathic."
Homeopathic doctors believe that modern medicine is highly focused on supressing the symptoms of disease, not curing its cause. It is further believed that the symptoms are simply the body's way of returning to a state of balance. Supressing symptoms with medicine or surgery may drive a disease deeper, resulting in a different, and often more serious set of symptoms to crop up, while the original underlying imbalance remains.
When chosing to go natural or holistic, please check with your vet and professionals. Like so many other products, the manufacturer and ingredients may differ. Dosing may be very different and seeing results may take longer than using conventinal medication.
