Homeopathy, What Is It and How Does It Work?: Christophe Merville, D.Pharm

What is homeopathy? How can homeopathy compliment or, in some cases, replace traditional pharmaceuticals? How can we use homeopathy to treat things like allergies, stress, sore muscles, and more? What about homeopathy makes it so individual and specific for each person? How can you find the right homeopathic practitioner? What are the limits of homeopathy?

Christophe Merville joins us this week on the SuperAge podcast to share his insights on homeopathy. Christophe is a pharmacist with training in homeopathy. As he explains, in France, the relationship that a pharmacist has with their patients is quite intimate when compared to how it is in the US. Pharmacists in France also incorporate homeopathy into their treatment plans. So what exactly is homeopathy? Christophe breaks it down for us in this episode.

What you will learn in this episode:

  • Homeopathy 101
  • When one might want to use homeopathic treatments instead of pharmaceuticals
  • Why the dosages of homeopathic treatments are as low as they are
  • How to find the right practitioner for you
  • The limits of homeopathy

“In France, homeopathy is very much integrated in medical practice.”

“We are in a culture, especially in the US, where more is better.”

“Homeopathy works fast. When you find that right medicine, it will work fast.”

“Know your limits and know when to ask for help.”
