Homeopathy is a very established field of health care. Its practice is over 200 years old and obviously pre-dates many current forms of health care.Homeopathic remedies are chosen to treat the whole person, because homeopaths believe the mind and body operate as one, and you cannot treat one part of the body without affecting the whole. Remedies are chosen to fit all the characteristics of the patient, so physical disorders are considered in relation to the individual’s mental and emotional state.
