Homeopathy-Natural Medicine for You & Your Family

$24

with Dana Tavares

Calendar Oct 5, 2017 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health. It is extremely safe to use, even with very small children and pets, has none of the side effects of many traditional medications, is very affordable, is made from natural substances, and is FDA regulated.

“Homeopathy is a system of medicine that is fundamentally different from conventional (allopathic) medicine. Whereas allopathic medicine focuses on suppression of symptoms, homeopathy seeks to correct the underlying imbalance that caused the symptoms in the first place. Homeopathy achieves this by strengthening the body’s own defenses, thereby allowing the body to heal itself”. (Joette Calabrese)

Join us for this 1 hour introduction to Homeopathy. We will discuss the origins of Homeopathy, what it is, and using homeopathic remedies in your everyday life for treating colds/flu, injuries, trauma, skin conditions, and much more. We will discuss Classical Homeopathy, the Banerji Protocols that are rapidly gaining recognition worldwide, and our new Homeopathic Home Study Groups to help you get the most from what this amazing natural healing method offers.

Dana & Sylvia Tavares are the owners of the Tree Of Life Center for Wellbeing in Newcastle. Dana & Sylvia have used homeopathy in their family for over 25 years.
