Homeopathy is a 200-year-old medical science that was largely throughout the world until allopathic (modern) medicine replaced it. Homeopathic medicine is still extensively used in India and many European countries. A resurgence of interest in homeopathy is occurring in America and Canada, particularly in the Pacific Northwest region as people realize the limitations and side effects of prescription medications. These remedies are inexpensive, and made from un-synthesized, diluted matter from the plant, animal, mineral and chemical kingdoms. It is possible to treat one's family naturally, through homeopathic medicine, with a little knowledge, a reference book and a remedy kit.
For more information or to register for class please call Johnson's Village Pharmacy at 753-3200.
