Dr Oz: Homeopathic Principle ‘Like Cures Like’
Homeopathy is an alternative form of medicine that many people prefer because of its gentle nature and use of fewer chemicals than most traditional medicines. Homeopathy is built on the principle that ‘Like Cures Like’, for example if drinking coffee is keeping you awake at night, you might need a homeopathic remedy that includes a concentrated amount of coffee to help you sleep. Dr. Oz said his family has been using homeopathy for three generations, so he has put together a Homeopathic Starter Kit for you and your family to help get you on your way to more natural healing.
Dr Oz: Lisa Samet Homeopathy Treats ‘Whole’ Person
Homeopathy is used by many health care providers because it treats the patient as a whole person while getting to the root of their problem rather than just temporarily relieving their symptoms, like in the case of more traditional medicine. Lisa Samet, a naturopathic doctor, said that many patients come to her fed up with antibiotics and drugs and some even wish to transfer from their medications to a more natural homeopathic alternative, which she said can happen pretty easily. She said that homeopathic remedies are more and more available and the best part is that they are safe, inexpensive, last you a long time and do not require a prescription.
Dr Oz: Homeopathic Treatment For Fever Belladonna
If you are trying to reach less for Acetaminophen and more for something natural when it comes to treating headaches, then Belladonna could be the answer for you. Naturopathic Doctor Lisa Samet explained that if you were to eat the Belladonna flower it would make you very sick with a headache, fever and other symptoms, so considering the ‘like cures like’ principle a highly diluted amount of Belladonna would help to treat your headache or fever.

Dr Oz: Gelsemium Cures the Flu
We have all heard about the awful flu season and probably know someone who felt its effects, but since some of us do not want to take over-the-counter medicines, there is a homeopathic remedy to help if you get the flu. It is in the form of a flower called Gelsemium. Gelsemium is highly toxic if you were to eat it, but in a highly diluted and small amount, it can help you feel much better if the flu hits you. Lisa Samet explains that Gelsemium is best suited to treat the type of flu where patients experience a great deal of fatigue and literally are too tired to even move or keep their eyes open.
