Homeopathic Medicine: Calendula OfficinalisHomeopathy

Homeopathy is an effective, gentle, powerful and scientific form of energy medicine. It strengthens body’s defence mechanisms with substances selected for their energy given properties. It has been proven to be effective against both acute and chronic disease and a wide variety of conditions. Homeopathic medicines are extremely safe, non addictive, can be used in conjunction with any pharmaceutical medication and is suitable for all ages and gender. According to the World Health organisation it is the second largest system of medicine in the world. It involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural healing forces.

This form of medicine is based on the principle that you can treat “like with like”, that is a substance which causes symptoms when taking large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms. Similar to how a conventional vaccination will give you a small amount of a micro organism that causes disease to build your immunity against it.

For example, drinking too much coffee can cause sleeplessness and agitation, so according to this principle, when made into a homeopathic medicine, it could be used to alleviate sleeplessness and agitation of people who are under stress and or anxious.
