Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine created in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, based on his doctrine of like cures like, a claim that a substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people would cure similar symptoms in sick people. Homeopathic medicine is derived from nature, using plants, herds, vitamins and minerals to create remidies that assist the body in the natural healing process.
The study of Homeopathy belives in healing the body from the inside out, treating the person and not the symptoms. In Homeopathic study you learn to treat someone by looking at the “big picture”, all the potential sources of illness so that each source may be targeted and treated accordingly. Mr.Rivas has boiled this phiolosophy into what he refers to as “The Big 3”, Genetic predispostion, Enviromental factors, and Input. By looking at all three aspects of a person’s health Mr. Rivas will be able to properly asses your personal health needs and create a program specialized to you.
Homeopathic remidies are made thorugh a process of dilution and successtion (vigorously shaken) making them potent but non-toxic. This non-toxic aspect makes homeopathic remides perfect for children, elderly, pregnant or breadfeeding women.
