Homeopathy Q & A
What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a revolutionary approach to medicine that uses natural medicines and remedies to treat both acute and chronic illnesses. Homeopathic medicine approaches take advantage of your body’s own healing capabilities and aim to train your body to heal itself more effectively.
With homeopathic medicine at Revitalize Functional Medicine, you can reduce or eliminate your dependence on chemical substances and invasive treatments. Homeopathic treatments don’t rely on chemicals or Western medicine treatment techniques. Instead, they use all-natural substances that are highly unlikely to cause any adverse reactions or side effects. Homeopathic treatments generally include natural substances like vegetables, minerals, and even insects.
During a consultation, the specialists at Revitalize Functional Medicine take a full evaluation of your current state of well-being, including your mind and body, and the condition you want to address. Then, they create an individualized homeopathic treatment for you.
What are the main principles of homeopathy?

In homeopathy, your specialist takes note of any symptoms or disturbances you’re experiencing and uses them to select a treatment. Treatments that produce similar symptoms are thought to help accelerate healing.
Homeopathic remedies rely on very small doses for as few side effects as possible. To prepare your homeopathic medicine for ingestion, the specialists dilute the substance to the point that there is hardly any detectable.
Your specialist prescribes just one homeopathic remedy to you at a time. This provides a clear picture of the effects of the singular remedy.
