World Homeopathy Awareness Week

Join us in celebrating World Homeopathy Awareness Week (WHAW)!

World Homeopathy Awareness Week (April 10-16) celebrates the birth of Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician recognized as the father of homeopathy. It inspires a variety of public events. Free lectures, volunteer first-aid at events, free homeopathy clinics, media interviews, educational posts on Twitter and Facebook, to name just a few, are provided and shared in over 40 countries.

Hahnemann developed homeopathy partly out of concern that some of the medical practices of his day (such as bloodletting) did more harm to patients than good. But he was also motivated by a desire to heal the sick “…in the shortest, most reliable and most harmless way.”

Today, homeopathy is used by millions of people around the world to treat everything from allergies to morning sickness to whooping cough. But there’s much more to like about homeopathic remedies than just the fast, safe relief they provide:

  • Choice. Homeopathy puts you in charge of your health and your health care. In many cases, you don’t need to see a homeopathic practitioner to diagnose and treat health conditions—only the ability to recognize symptoms of disease and changes in those symptoms.
  • Natural relief. Homeopathic remedies are made from natural substances that work with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health.
  • Accessibility. Most homeopathic remedies are available over the counter in groceries and natural food stores and also online.
  • Affordability. Homeopathic remedies cost much less than most traditional medications purchased through pharmacies.

Save the Date! World Homeopathy Awareness Week 2018 will be April 10-16, 2018.
