Homeopathy is a medical system based on the Law of Similars, or “like cures like.” Substances that cause a symptom are used in very diluted amounts to cure that same symptom. For example, a common remedy to treat itchy red skin is Rhux tox (poison ivy). Because the amounts of the substances are in such diluted quantities, only the energy of the substance is left, not the physical properties. Therefore, there are no interactions with other medications nor are there side effects.
Homeopathy stimulates the person’s own healing defense mechanisms, allowing the body to come more into balance. Because homeopathy is an energetic medicine, not just a physical one, balance can be achieved on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Profound changes can be experienced when a remedy is carefully chosen to best match the total state of the individual.
Maria Hoeffer, ND practices classical homeopathy, a system that takes into account all aspects of a client – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – to find the closest energetic remedy match. Remedies are made from all substances in our world – minerals, plants, animals, even substances such as Coca-Cola!
In addition to 4 years of training in homeopathy in naturopathic medical school, Maria has pursued additional homeopathic training from leaders in the homeopathic world community including Jan Scholten, Alize Timmerman, Rajan Sankaran, and Peter Fraser.
