Homeopathy is often used in naturopathy. Homeopathic remedies are developed from natural substances. Small doses are given to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal. Homeopathy works on the theory that “like cures like.” This means that something that gives a healthy people symptoms will cure the same symptoms for someone who is ill.
Homeopathy is a common treatment in many countries and is the second most popular form of medicine. In North America, it is still considered controversial and unproven. Naturopathy is a medical system that upholds a holistic and natural approach to the body’s instrinsic ability to heal and maintain health and well being. In naturopathy, nature is believed to have healing power.
