Homeopathic Medicine

homeopathic medicationHomeopathy is a safe and effective form of medicine which stimulates your body’s natural ability to heal. Rather than suppressing your symptoms like most conventional treatments, homeopathy helps to restore health naturally, by working with your body’s innate healing mechanisms.

Homeopathic remedies are made from naturally occurring substances, such as plants and minerals.

Rather than giving everyone with the same diagnosis the same homeopathic remedy, Dr. Grise will prescribe an individualized remedy for you based on the totality of your symptoms, including your emotional state and all of the specific details of your symptoms.

Homeopathy can treat a wide variety of conditions, from a common cold to severe depression to autoimmune disease. Dr. Grise uses homeopathic medicine for most of her patients. Most people feel an improvement in their symptoms within 1-2 weeks of treatment, depending on the condition being treated. For acute illnesses, such as a cold or flu, most patients will feel better within hours of treatment with the right homeopathic remedy.

Why Choose Homeopathy?

1) You want to avoid side effects of conventional drugs.

Unlike many other kinds of medicines available, homeopathy does not cause side effects. There are no long-term risks of using homeopathic medicine. Homeopathy is a gentle yet powerful form of medicine that can safely be used with every member of the family, during all stages of life.

2) You were recently diagnosed with a psychiatric condition and do not want to start medication.

Homeopathic medicine is the perfect first step for patients who have been just diagnosed and do not immediately want to start conventional drugs that just suppress symptoms. The right homeopathic medicine for you can provide excellent mood stabilizing effects, without the side effects or risks associated with conventional drugs.

3) You have not responded well to medications and you are ready to try an effective alternative.

A large percentage of my patients have been through a huge list of conventional antipsychotics, antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and anxiety drugs, and unfortunately are still not feeling well. Homeopathic medicine can treat the underlying susceptibility to the chemical imbalance that is causing the illness, thereby allowing the patient to feel healthier while requiring less medication over time. There are no interactions with drugs, so you can start homeopathic medicine and then we can initiate a gradual taper schedule of your medication as the symptoms improve.

4) You want a safe approach for young children, or you are pregnant or nursing.

While most conventional psychiatric drugs are risky or unsafe for children or during pregnancy, homeopathic medicine provides a safe treatment option. Homeopathic remedies can be very effective for pediatric health concerns ranging from acute illnesses to severe chronic conditions. Homeopathy is safe during pregnancy, nursing, and can be useful as a treatment option in the stages before and after pregnancy. Homeopathic medicine is useful for short term symptoms related to pregnancy, as well as treating long term health concerns before, during, and after pregnancy.

5) Homeopathic medicine is cost effective. 

Homeopathic medicines are very affordable, the average remedy costing between $8-20 dollars. The cost of the visits at our office is the main cost of treatment, but the medicine itself is very affordable. With health care costs increasing, it is essential for people to find a sustainable, and cost effective form of medicine. Well trained homeopathic physicians are often able to work their patients toward greater health and wellness with homeopathic treatment, thus reducing long term health care costs.

6) You want to reduce your need for excessive supplements, and dosages of prescription medications.

Homeopathy works by stimulating your body’s natural ability to heal. As your body becomes healthier, people find that they can lower the dosages of their prescription drugs while maintaining good stability. With a single homeopathic remedy, we can often take care of multiple problems at once, simplifying the treatment plan dramatically.

7) You want to feel naturally balanced.

Homeopathy is not a drug that forces change in your body in an unnatural way. It does not add anything or take anything away. Rather, it works with your body to catalyze a healing reaction that encourages a natural balance of stress hormones and neurotransmitters. One of the most exciting things about homeopathy is that it is useful in acute illnesses, injuries, and chronic diseases. Often times, patients who have been treated homeopathically say things like, “I feel more like myself” or “I have my daughter back”.
