Homeopathic Medicine Q & A

What is homeopathy?

Homeopathy is an alternative medical practice that uses diluted amounts of natural substances to treat a range of health conditions and diseases. Derived from the Greek word “homeo,” which means similar, homeopathic medicine derives from the concept that similar conditions cure their counterparts. Once in your body, a homeopathic medicine acts just like the disease.  This prompts your body to activate your immune system and heal itself.

Rather than addressing specific symptoms, Dr. Rosenberger uses homeopathy in a whole-body context. Each prescribed dose treats the cause of illness while also restoring balance and function to your entire body.

What conditions does homeopathic medicine treat?

At East West Integrative Health Clinic, Dr. Rosenberger uses homeopathic medicine every day because it is so useful in the treatment of many ailments, diseases, and conditions such as:

  • Poison ivy
  • Nausea
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Ear infections
  • Toothaches
  • Colds
  • Bronchitis
  • Digestive problems
  • Varicose veins
  • High blood pressure
  • Acne
  • Headaches

What are the benefits of homeopathy?

Homeopathy is surging in popularity because it offers many benefits. A few of the top reasons that patients and doctors love homeopathic medicine include:

  • It’s inexpensive
  • It acts fast — within minutes or hours
  • It’s easy to use or administer
  • It has no expiration date
  • It works for all ages
  • It’s available without a prescription

Are homeopathic medicines safe?

Absolutely! When prescribed the correct remedy, it is a safe and effective treatment. Even so, the Food and Drug Administration regulates homeopathic medicine and has been doing so for 80 years.

Before recommending a specific homeopathic regimen, Dr. Rosenberger evaluates your health and customizes a dosage that’s perfectly matched to treat your condition.

How long does homeopathic medicine take to work?

The right protocol goes to work in your body right away and can alleviate symptoms in a few minutes. The positive effect continues to work its way through your system over the next few days to weeks that follow. Depending on the severity of your condition, Dr. Rosenberger may advise you to continue taking the prescription until your symptoms dissipate.
