Homeopathy is primarily a preventive medicine, especially if the patient follows it from an early age. Homeopathy can act as a truly preventative medicine, in an organism that is going to get sick, before even functional symptoms appear, which foreshadow the disease that is going to develop.
This incubation period of a disease is the most suitable time for starting Homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy examines the body long before pathological symptoms occur and recognizes predispositions. Thus by studying the patient as a whole, the homeopathic doctor is able to intervene and restore balance in an organism that begins loosing its healthy state.
