Forty years ago, sitting in a high school physiology class, my teacher said something that resonated with me and sent me along my career path. He said that the human body has just about everything inside to heal itself. We have the chemistry and the mechanisms. The trouble with healing is that our bodies don't always know how to turn on the switch to make that happen. Our bodies try to heal and in the process give lots of good information in the form of signs and symptoms. The homeopath takes all that information and matches it to a remedy. That remedy then becomes the switch to energize the body to finish the healing process.
