M MADELEINE TOWNSEND is your source in Kingston and the surrounding areas when you need help to find the most correct homeopathic remedy.
The underlying principle of homeopathy is the treatment by Similars, or “like cures like”. Meaning that a substance that causes a certain set of symptoms in large doses can be used to treat those same symptoms in infinitesimal doses. This concept is occasionally used in conventional medicine; for example, the stimulant Ritalin, derived from Coffea, is used to treat patients with ADHD; a derivative of Colchicum for treatment of gout; and small doses of allergens such as pollen can be used to de-sensitize allergic patients. But what is missing in conventional medicine here is to individualize to the patient. That is, not all ADHD patients show symptoms of Coffea, nor gout patients, signs of Colchicum. Homeopathic medicines are used in a very dilute form, making them non-toxic.
Why should you choose Homeopathy over conventional medicine, or Allopathy? The very principles upon which these two systems of medicine are based are contrasted: Homeopathy works by Similars, and Allopathy by Contraries. Homeopathy seeks to remediate, allopathy to medicate the symptoms.
