If you're looking for an alternative to standard medicine, you're in luck. Renaissance Wellness, serving East Aurora, NY, and the nearby region, is home to Dr. Tom Insinna and Dr. Pam Insinna, who offer homeopathy. But before you book an appointment and discover for yourself what the treatment is, it can help you to better understand what it is.
Homeopathy is a form of medicine that consists of using natural methods to encourage your body to heal as it was designed to do. During a homeopathy treatment, your practitioner will provide you with small amounts of natural ingredients that help stimulate this process.
The tinctures used in homeopathy may come in tablet, gel, cream, sugar pellet, or liquid drop form.
Your body is naturally designed to heal on its own. Let's take your immune system, for example. It's essentially your body's army, fighting against any harmful invaders. Even when you sustain an injury, it triggers your immune system to respond. Rather than put a foreign substance in your body that masks symptoms, homeopathy focuses on strengthening your body to ward off problems now and in the future.
If you have strong convictions about using unnatural substances in your body, this is an option for you since all ingredients come from nature in some way, shape, or form. While this doesn't eliminate the possibility of a reaction, it does feel good for some people to know they're not inputting a chemical-based substance into their body that's more likely to cause an allergic response.
Homeopathy has a long history of use dating back to Germany in the late 1700s.
Applications of Homeopathy
When you visit our East Aurora, NY, office, a practitioner will listen carefully to your symptoms and perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine the problem. Then, your practitioner will prescribe a course of action that'll let your body work its best and correct the issue through natural means.
One common reason we use this treatment is for migraines. It's also beneficial for those with allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and more. We can even use it to help curve the symptoms of a cold.
Compared to Naturopathy
Homeopathy is similar to naturopathy. However, naturopathy is a much more extensive practice that entails a person utilizing lifestyle changes, exercise therapy, and even supplements to improve overall health.

A second principle of homeopathy is that the doctor should use the least amount of a medicine (remedy) necessary to evoke a healing response. This is called the "Minimum Dose". We all know that conventional medicines can cause side effects leading to much suffering or even death. In an effort to prevent such side effects, Dr. Hahnemann began using a scientific procedure called, "Successive Dilution with Agitation" to develop his remedies. He did this to find the point at which they would be therapeutically effective, yet do no harm to the patient. This healing art has been used successfully all over the world for over a century.
