Mexico City - Alternative Medicine
Due to climate changes, pollution and contagions at school, children get respiratory diseases quite often. Many mothers, tired of constantly administering antibiotics and antihistamines to their offspring, have turned to alternative medicine and many are satisfied with the results.
Homeopathy is a natural pharmaceutical science that uses various plants, mineral or animal substances in very small doses to stimulate the sick person's natural defenses. The medicines are individually chosen for the symptoms the person is experiencing. The medicines, thus, go with - rather than against - the person's natural defenses. The "law of similars" is the basic principle of homeopathy and it is used in some conventional medical therapies, such as immunizations and allergy treatments.
Homeopathy is not covered by insurance plans.
