Homeopathic medicines are preparations from mostly plant materials and minerals, but rather than the pharmacological activity of herbs, homeopathic medicines are more energetic in their action.
They are very safe to use, particularly for children. They are also suitable for patients who are on prescription medicines where other types of natural medicines might react with a prescription medicine and therefore prevent the use of those other options. Homeopathy can provide treatment options that may not be available for other natural medicines. It is also a system of medicine unto itself which is very effective in treating a wide variety of ailments.
