Homeopathic Facts – Did You Know…?

Based on natural laws and principles, homeopathy is a highly systematic method that powerfully stimulates the body’s vital force and defense mechanisms, which leads to true healing.
Homeopathy is widely practiced in Europe, India, Pakistan, and Latin America, and is integrated into the national health-care system in many counties including Germany, India, France, Brazil, Mexico, Sri Lanka and the United Kingdom
Hundreds of double-blind placebo studies have been conducted over the past few decades, especially in Europe and India, proving homeopathic medicine to be effective medicine
