Both medical theraputics have very different approaches toward reaching the goal of wellness. The chart below differenciates two very different modalities and how certain illnesses are addressed by each. The true definition of health is to be the best that we can be, without controlling our symptoms, but healing on the deepest level. We can have the best of both worlds, of knowing when to use conventional medicine and when to use homeopathy, they both have their strong points. It’s up to the individual to be their own authority, educate them self and decide what works best for them.

Matches specific symptoms to exact remedy picture.Presence of bacteria is usually a function of stress-induced low immunity.|

Eckhart Tolle, in his book A New Earth, describes how the “war against disease” has yielded many useful tools, including antibiotics, which initially proved to be extremely successful. However, as experts in many fields have noted, blanket use of synthetic substances, especially antibiotics, has in fact created drug-resistant super-bugs.
