Dr. Cheryl Haugh, MA, DC is trained in homeopathy, a safe, natural and highly specialized practice of health care that treats the individual rather than the disease. It has been used by millions of people worldwide for more than 200 years. Homeopathy recognizes the whole person—body, mind and spirit—is affected when one is sick. The homeopath seeks to cure, rather than suppress, symptoms, which are viewed as signals of system imbalance.
Patient-specific remedies are made from singular animal, mineral, or plant sources in extremely small amounts and work to restore balance to the body’s vital force returning it to health. The choice of remedy is based on symptoms and peculiarities unique to the patient discovered during a comprehensive history. This curative process can be nearly immediate at times.
Homeopathy works particularly well on children who may otherwise be sensitive to the adverse side effects of prescriptive medications. There is a host of remedies suitable for the medicine cabinet which can be used in a first-aid situation when an acute illness or injury has occurred. These usually act quickly to bring relief.
