Natural Light is an Important

Natural light is an important component of health

“I remember when people didn't know that smoking was dangerous and people didn't pay much attention to their diets. One of the next steps will be for people to realize that the amount of natural light they receive, as well as when they receive it, is another important component of health” – Charmane Eastman, Ph.D.

Introduction to Homeopathy

1. Definition
Homeopathy is a system for the treatment of disease by minute doses of natural substances that in a healthy person would produce symptoms of disease.

2. Founder
Homeopathy originated in the late 18th century with the German physician Samuel Hahnemann.

3. Law of Similars (Like Cures Like)
The same substance that in large doses produces the symptoms of an illness, in very minute does cure it.

4. Minimal Dose
A remedy is taken in an extremely dilute form; normally one part of the remedy to around 1,000,000,000,000 parts of water.

5. Single Remedy
No matter how many symptoms are experienced, only one remedy is taken, and that remedy is aimed at all those symptoms.

6. Natural
Homeopathic remedies are generally based on natural ingredients from plants, minerals and animals.

7. Clinical Trials
Homeopathic remedies have been shown to have no measurable effect beyond placebo even though millions of people testify to their effectiveness.

8. FDA
Homeopathic remedies are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, the FDA does not evaluate the remedies for safety or effectiveness.

9. Growth
Homeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world. Its growth in popularity in the United States has exceeded 25% a year for the last decade.

10. Whole You
Homeopathy is holistic. It treats all the symptoms as one, which in practical terms means that it addresses the cause, not the symptoms.
