Homeopathic medicines are a completely different approach to disease and remedies from that found in conventional or ‘allopathic’ medicine. Homeopathy follows a holistic approach to good health, while in the more common allopathic approach, remedies are used that work against the disease and their symptoms - the ‘anti’ drugs.
Weleda homeopathic medicines do not treat diseases but, rather, individuals with specific symptom pictures. They attempt to stimulate the body’s own natural healing capacity. Homeopathic remedies act as a trigger for the body’s own healing forces and remedies may be prescribed on a very individual basis. For example onions (allium) can be given to patients in homeopathic form to help a streaming nose and watering eyes.
