Homeopathy Referrals


Homeopathy stimulates the body's defense mechanisms in order to prevent or treat illness. The practice of Homeopathy constitutes the assessment of the body system disorders and their treatment in order to promote, maintain and restore health.

The American Institute of Homeopathy defines a Homeopathic physician as "one who adds to his knowledge of Medicine a special knowledge of Homeopathic Therapeutics". Homeopathic physicians select remedies according to a total picture of the patient, including not only physical symptoms but mental and emotional ones, physical features, the effects of a variety of environmental influences, patterns of disease within families and family and social relationships. Consequently, the homeopathic treatment is highly individualized.

We accept referrals from other healthcare professionals as well as self-referrals. By respecting the patients' treatment goals and decisions, we value the collaborative work with other health professionals as part of an interdisciplinary team.

According to the United States Cancer Advisory Panel for CAM, when properly combined with standard cancer treatments, Complementary therapies play a part in improving quality of life, enhancing feelings of control, and encouraging healing.

A large study done by the Office of Cancer CAM regarding patients with different types of cancer was published in the July 2000 issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology. This study found that 69 percent of patients had used at least one CAM therapy as part of their cancer treatment.
