Homeopathy is often touted as ‘nonsense’ by conventional medicine. Used for both people and pets, it’s safer than herbal medicine because as there are no side effects (it’s basically water). But the medical mind behind it was a trained doctor, and many people have found that they (or their pets or barnyard friends) have healed, when nothing else has worked. This is not to say to never use orthodox medicine. But as there are a lot of quacks out there, here are some useful resources if you decide to go down this route. Note that most homeopathy medicine is plant-based but some is note (a few remedies use bee stings or even the ‘spit from rabid dogs’). So do be careful where you buy medicines from, before purchase. Do your research, and don’t be frightened to ask questions!
Homeopathy UK has a website to find a qualified homeopath and you can also find information on how to treat various conditions. The Society of Homeopaths lets you search by location for a registered professional homeopath who is well-trained, registered and insured.
