Conventional medicine subscribes to a one size fits all approach to treatment.  Homeopathy, one the other hand, uses a customized approach for healing depression.

All aspects of the person's life are taken into consideration, not just symptoms.

This thorough approach is essential for determining the proper treatment protocol. 


Historical Tidbit

Back in the 1700s, German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann was so frustrated with the ineffectiveness of medicine that he quit the profession for writing and speaking work.   No wonder, bloodletting was the go-to method for curing disease at the time. 

I guess doctors back then didn’t think draining someone’s blood would lead to anemia and other health problems. 

But then the good doctor discovered that certain plants and herbs could cure diseases by triggering the body’s ability to heal. 

Homeopathic medicine was born.
