Homeopathy Primer-A much misunderstood 200 year old remedy system based in plants, animals, minerals and more. This system has been maligned as placebo almost from the beginning. However, science studies have been exposing many medicines as placebos, roughly 30% of reactions to medicines are placebo. Albert Einstein prefers to think “Everything in life is vibration.” I agree. Homeopathy is an energy medicine which stimulates the mind and immune system through frequency or “signature” to alter the body’s reactions either to prepare for an assault or to activate the proper response to begin healing from injury or illnesses. Gather the tools to use this non-toxic, inexpensive system for the health of yourself, family and friends.
