When properly manufactured and applied, homeopathic medicine plays an important role in the treatment of patients with both major and minor health problems. Homeopathy is inexpensive, effective, and inherently safe.

When utilized according to well established principles, homeopathy can be used alongside conventional medical practices, to deliver a more clinically and cost-effective result. For example, homeopathy helps avoid antibiotic overuse in many infectious conditions, reserving these valuable medicines for the times when they are critically necessary. Homeopathy effectively treats painful conditions and reduces the need for opioid and nonsteroidal pain medicines, reducing exposure to these agents, along with their costly and dangerous side effects.

Among its many other benefits, homeopathy helps reduce the need for polypharmacy since one single homeopathic prescription frequently addresses a multitude of medical concerns in a single individual. The positive results that have been achieved through homeopathic treatment have been documented in a worldwide database over the last two centuries. It is no wonder that homeopathy has been fully integrated into the National Health Services of many nations and is the second most commonly used form of medicine worldwide.

Homeopathy is a well-developed system of individualized medicine that has been both scientifically evidence based and clinically verified. This compendium of research serves as a primer of evidence suggesting the importance of fully integrating homeopathic medicine into the infrastructure of the U.S. Healthcare System. Homeopathy meets the standards of methodologies that have been scientifically researched and have clinically demonstrated evidence of both safety and effectiveness.
