At Cherubino Health Center a homeopathic medicine approach is most often used in conjunction with other treatments and therapies but may also be used as a stand-alone technique.

What is homeopathy?

Homeopathy dates back to the late 1700s and early 1800s when Samuel Hahnemann, a medical doctor, became disillusioned with the common medical practices of the day. Dr. Hanhemann’s research lead to a safe, effective and natural form of what became known as homeopathic medicine.

Homeopathic medicine is based on three fundamental principles:

  1. Like cures like
  2. Individualization of treatment
  3. Minimal dosage

In the early 1900s, there were 22 homeopathic medical schools and 100 homeopathic hospitals. There were also over 1000 homeopathic medicine pharmacies and the discipline was taught in such notable centers of higher learning as Boston University, Stanford University and New York Medical College.

As a result of philosophical, political and territorial attacks at the hands of the AMA (American Medical Association) and the powerful pharmaceutical industry, homeopathy became nearly extinct by the mid-1900s.

Due to the fact that homeopathy is safe and highly effective, especially when compared with the harsh chemical and surgical methods of today’s allopathic medical system, it has experienced a tremendous resurgence.

Homeopathic Medicine Testing through Pulse Reflex Analysis (PRA)

At Cherubino Health Center we use various forms of homeopathic testing including pulse reflex analysis, applied kinesiology and applied reflex analysis to help determine a person’s homeopathic medicine needs.

Pulse Reflex Analysis is especially useful in helping identify the potential benefits and effects of specific homeopathy remedies based on a patient’s individual needs.
