Benefits of Homeopathic Medicines by Gary Kracoff, NMD, R.Ph.


I’m Gary Kracoff. I work at Johnson Compounding
and Wellness Center in Waltham, Massachusetts. A homeopathic medicine is a gentle medicine
– it’s using diluted amounts of a natural substance to help the body do what it’s trying
to do. And an example of a homeopathic medicine is apis mellifica. That’s made from the honey
bee. If any of you have ever been stung by a bee, you know you get a very pink, hot,
itchy, burning welt that’s much better if you put ice on it. That’s the type of symptom
that apis homeopathically will help. And you can also look at it as a symptom picture – what
if you have a sore throat that feels much better when you drink cold water? Or sometimes
it’s heat, sometimes it’s cold that make it better. If it’s cold, apis would probably
help your sore throat also. So remedies have multiple uses – it’s not just for a specific
condition. As a parent and a pharmacist, some of the things I love about homeopathy are
they’re easy to use, they’re available everywhere across the country, they don’t make you drowsy,
they don’t speed you up, and the whole family can use them. Infants, the parents, the grandparents,
senior citizens, and you don’t have to be concerned if you are taking a prescription
drug that you are gonna have an interaction.
