Elements of your chief complaint along with symptoms on your physical, mental and emotional planes are considered. This is important in order to individualize a medicine for you. For example, there are several excellent medicines for seasonal allergies, and in order to select the best allergy medicine for you, it’s necessary to understand your constitution, how you respond to stressful events and what makes you tick. All this information is used to find the best match for your symptom pattern. Homeopathic medicines are derived from plant, animal or mineral sources and are prepared in a specific method in a homeopathic pharmacy.
