2017 0115 03  Homeopathy for Every Home: Homeo First Aid Kit 


Homeopathy is cheap, effective, and has no side effects. This medical science uses natural substances to stimulate the body to heal itself. 

Most homeopathic remedies are made from herbs and minerals, and they are based on the principle discovered by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann [1755-1843] that like cures like. 

This means that a substance that produces symptoms in a healthy person can be used to cure the same symptoms in a sick person, when prepared according to homeopathic principles.

Emergency kits and individual remedies are available at health food stores and online. For most purposes potency 30C is a good enough.
Many of us have heard propaganda from Big Pharma and the medical industry that homeopathy is quackery. In truth the medical industry is afraid of the competition homeopathy represents. Anyone who has ever tried it will know the truth.
