WHAT ARE HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES? by Dr. Kaslow

WHAT ARE HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES?
Homeopathy works to clear the body, at a cellular or energetic level, of metabolic disturbances. Homeopathic medicine is non-toxic. Many people confuse homeopathy with herbal therapy, vitamins, minerals.
The most common homeopathic remedies are liquids or lactose/sugar pellets or wafers impregnated with the liquid remedy. Some liquid forms contain alcohol to preserve the remedy. Non-alcoholic liquids are used whenever possible or pellets/wafers may be used if alcohol is undesirable. Also available are ointments and herbal tinctures for first aid help in the case of injuries such as wounds, burns, bruises, insect bites.
