Homeopathy is originally a German medicine that interprets symptom patterns as a reflection of an underlying imbalance in the body. Homeopathic remedies are dilute preparations of a substance, such as a plant or mineral, chosen according to a person’s unique state of physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. Because homeopathic remedies are gentle and non-toxic, they are considered an ideal intervention during pregnancy, for children, and for chemical-sensitive people. In Ontario, Homeopathy is a government-regulated profession and consultations with a registered practitioner are tax-deductible medical expenses.
