Q: What is homeopathy?
A: Homeopathy (homeos - similar; pathos - disease) is a healing system officially defined by Dr Samuel Hahnemann more than 200 years ago.
It uses remedies that are made from mineral, plant and animal kingdom in high dilution. Each remedy has a specific frequency and challenges the body to produce an artificial disease similar to the original one. The immune system is stimulated to heal both of them simultaneously.
The main principles of homeopathy are: like cure like, the only similimum, the infinitesimal dose, vital force and secondary reaction.
The knowledge behind it is described in: organon, materia medica, repertory, provings, miasms and Herring law of cure.
It is based on the laws of quantum physics. It is highly effective in treating any emotional, mental and physical acute and chronic diseases. The patient often goes through an aggravation of symptoms (healing crisis) before improvement takes place.
There are more than 2500 homeopathic remedies that cover any health condition.
Homeopathy has been very successful in flu, cholera and other pandemics.

Q: How do I take the homeopathic remedy?
A: Dissolve under tongue or chew it 10 - 15 min before meal. It comes in granules, pilules, pills, tablets, liquid and spray. Avoid camphor, caffeine and mint during the treatment.

Q: How much do I take?
A: A few granules, pilules, pills, tablets, drops or sprays as often as prescribed.

Q: Do homeopathic remedies interfere with my medication?
A: No, they don’t. However the homeopathic remedies strengthen the body to overcome disease. Therefore the need for medication would decrease and disappear over time.

Q: How does a homeopathic remedy eradicate my emotional trauma?
A: The correct remedy (similimum) challenges the body in a highly specific way to release the trauma from the subconscious mind. Belief, suggestion, hypnosis or skepticism does not change the action of the similimum. Homeopathic remedy is not a placebo!

Q: How long do I take the remedy for?
A: One single dose might be all that is needed in some cases.
In acute cases frequent taking (every few minutes or hours) of the remedy is indicated for a few hours or days.
In chronic cases 3 - 4 weeks treatment should be expected. The remedy might be changed every few months for 2 - 3 years.

Q: How often do I change the remedy?
A: Homeopathic follow up consultation will establish an indication for changing the remedy.

Q: What is a microbiological terrain?
A: Microbiological terrain is a presence of one or more active microorganisms that cause imbalance and subsequently disease.

Q: How do I clear the microorganisms?
A: By creating a terrain that is not conducive for their growth.
Alkalizing, oxygenating, detoxifying, nourishing and exercising the body produce a balance that is not conducive for microbial overgrowth.

Q: Do antibiotics improve the terrain?
A: No, they don’t. They only create medium for anaerobic bacteria and fungi thus aggravating it further.

A: Not at all. “The terrain is everything, the microbe is nothing!” Louis Pasteur has said before he died.
