Why do parents bring their kids (or themselves) for Homeopathic care, and what is Homeopathy anyway, and who is Dr Dushkin?
Parents often bring their children for Homeopathic care when their kids are either not getting better with medication, or they don’t want to put their kids on medication. Some examples are recurring ear infections with recurring antibiotic use, ADD/ADHD, allergies, asthma, eczema, sleep disturbances among other conditions
Homeopathy is a medical specialty. Some important things to know – it starts with the understanding that there is a natural healing mechanism inside of all of us. The goal of the FDA-regulated Homeopathic medicines is to activate that mechanism to restore health, balance, and well-being to the person.
Also important to understand is that a Homeopathic doctor treats each person, regardless of their age, as an individual. Since we are all NOT the same, and anyone who has a sibling, spouse, or more than one child, knows this to be true! Homeopathic care recognizes this individuality and treats each person that way.
