Why Choose Homeopathy?
1) If you want to avoid side effects of conventional drugs
Unlike many other kinds of medicines available, homeopathy does not cause side effects. There are no long-term risks of using homeopathic medicine. Homeopathy is a gentle yet powerful form of medicine that can safely be used with every member of the family, during all stages of life.
2) If you were recently diagnosed with a psychiatric condition and do not want to start medication
Homeopathic medicine is the perfect first step for patients who have been just diagnosed and do not immediately want to start conventional drugs that just suppress symptoms. The right homeopathic medicine for you can provide excellent mood stabilizing effects, without the side effects or risks associated with conventional drugs.
3) If you have not responded well to medications and you are ready to try an effective alternative
A large percentage of my patients have been through a huge list of conventional antipsychotics, antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and anxiety drugs, and unfortunately are still not feeling well. Homeopathic medicine can treat the underlying susceptibility to the chemical imbalance that is causing the illness, thereby allowing the patient to feel healthier while requiring less medication over time. There are no interactions with drugs, so you can start homeopathic medicine and then we can initiate a gradual taper schedule of your medication as the symptoms improve.
4) For young children, or during pregnancy or nursing
While most conventional psychiatric drugs are risky or unsafe for children or during pregnancy, homeopathic medicine provides a safe treatment option. Homeopathic remedies can be very effective for pediatric health concerns ranging from acute illnesses to severe chronic conditions. Homeopathy is safe during pregnancy, nursing, and can be useful as a treatment option in the stages before and after pregnancy. Homeopathic medicine is useful for short term symptoms related to pregnancy, as well as treating long term health concerns before, during, and after pregnancy.
5) If homeopathic medicine is more cost effective
Homeopathic medicines are very affordable, the average remedy costing between $8-20 dollars. The cost of the visits at our office is the main cost of treatment, but the medicine itself is very affordable. With health care costs increasing, it is essential for people to find a sustainable, and cost effective form of medicine. Well trained homeopathic physicians are often able to work their patients toward greater health and wellness with homeopathic treatment, thus reducing long term health care costs.
6) If you want to reduce your need for excessive supplements, and dosages of prescription medications
Homeopathy works by stimulating your body’s natural ability to heal. As your body becomes healthier, people find that they can lower the dosages of their prescription drugs while maintaining good stability. Some naturopathic doctors rely on a complicated and costly regimen of nutritional supplements. With a single homeopathic remedy, we can often take care of multiple problems at once, simplifying the treatment plan dramatically, while usually getting similar or better results.
7) If you want to feel naturally well
Homeopathy is not a drug that forces change in your body in an unnatural way. It does not add anything or take anything away. Rather, it works with your body to catalyze a healing reaction that encourages a natural balance of stress hormones and neurotransmitters. One of the most exciting things about homeopathy is that it is useful in both acute illnesses, injuries, and chronic diseases, improving wellness, and expediting the healing process. Often times, patients who have been treated homeopathically say things like, “I feel more like myself again.”
Get the facts: homeopathic research
Homeopathy is one of the most controversial types of medicine, because most scientists do not immediately understand how it could possibly work. There is limited funding for homeopathic research compared with conventional drugs, and many of the research studies have been done poorly, which leads to inconsistent results. If you look deeper into the research that has been done well, you will see that there is something happening on a physiological level that has surprised many of the researchers who originally were skeptics.
Homeopathic medicines have been shown to be effective in cell cultures, animals, and infants, as well as placebo-controlled trials, showing that it's more than just placebo effect.

What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is one of the safest types of medicine. It can be used in pregnancy and lactation, and for infants. Despite how gentle it is, it is also highly effective for treating very serious illnesses. Homeopathic medicine stimulates your body's natural ability to heal. Rather than suppressing your symptoms like most conventional treatments, homeopathy helps to restore health naturally, by working with your body's innate healing mechanisms.
Homeopathic remedies are made from natural substances, such as plants and minerals. During the preparation process, the original substance is made into a solution which is diluted multiple times. For commercial production, small sweet-tasting pellets are coated with these highly diluted solutions to give them medicinal value as homeopathic remedies.
There are thousands of homeopathic remedies, and in order to find the right one for you, your naturopathic doctor will ask you some specific questions. Rather than giving everyone with the same diagnosis the same homeopathic remedy, your doctor will prescribe the right remedy for you based on the totality of your symptoms, perhaps including your emotional state, and all of the details that make you who you are.
Most people feel an improvement in their symptoms within the first 2 weeks of homeopathic treatment, depending on the condition being treated. For acute illnesses, such as a cold or flu, most patients will feel better within hours of the right homeopathic remedy. Homeopathy can treat a wide variety of conditions, from a common cold to severe depression to autoimmune disease. Dr. Peyman uses homeopathic medicine for all of her patients.
