QVIUS Integrative Medical Centers offer a multidisciplinary approach with services that include:

HOMEOPATHY

The word Homeopathy is derived from the Greek homoios for similars and pathos for suffering. Homeopathy is considered by some to be the most effective form of natural medicine developed in the last 200 years. Discovered in the late 1700's by a German physician, chemist and medical translator named Samuel Hahnemann, homeopathy has since been practiced throughout the world. Homeopathy is based on the theory that what can produce a picture of dis-ease in an otherwise healthy individual, cures a similar picture of dis-ease in a sick person who has similar symptoms. This is known as the law of similars, "like cures like." Homeopathic remedies consist of administering tiny doses (which in larger doses would create the same symptoms as those ailment being expressed), of energy extracted from natural substances to stimulate a person's inherent curative powers. When a homeopathic remedy is given, an individual's inherent healing power or vital force is stimulated to restore balance and bring about a rapid and gentle relief of symptoms on all levels, mental, emotional and physical. Homeopathy does not attempt to cure a specific disease, but rather stimulates an individual's inherent healing power.

Constitutional Homeopathy

Constitutional homeopathic evaluation entails an in-depth and comprehensive case history, that covers a number of different areas including: current and past medical problems, family history, personality type, and response to major environmental, physical and emotional crisis as well as recording of objective findings about the particular body type, physical characteristics and general manner. Constitutional treatment is indicated for chronic health problems, such as rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, and episodic problems such as urinary tract infections or irritable bowel syndrome. It is especially helpful when the patient states they have "not been well since" a particular occurrence in their life.

Patient complaints that arise after an injury (i.e., bee sting, head concussion), emotional crisis (i.e., grief from the death of a loved one or dear pet, insult, fright), or exposure to the harsh environment (i.e., cold air, bright hot sun), or incident (i.e., childbirth, drug or reaction from vaccination) are often an indication that the body's energetic force, never fully recovered from a prior harmful stimulus.

We are interested in not only the offending occurrence, but also the patient's individual, personalized response, as each response points to a different remedy type. Traditional homeopathic remedies are not synthetic, but rather energetic extracts from natural substances. They remove symptoms without suppressing them, and produce no new symptoms which we call side effects. Homeopathy is more popular in Europe than in the United States. An estimated 40% of the French and 34% of the British use homeopathic remedies. The U.S. market is rapidly gaining as it appears to be doubling every 5 years.

Until now, medicines most readily available without prescription has been conventional, or allopathic drugs. These drugs help mask the symptoms of our illnesses and as a result we feel better. Traditional drugs, however, do not help to restore our body to its normal healthy balance and may produce undesirable side effects. Although symptoms are what guides a homeopath to the proper remedy, homeopathy treats the whole person and not just symptoms of the illness.

Constitution (Classical) homeopathy is offered in all QVIUS Healing Arts Centres by Dr. Edwin C. Floyd, a California licensed Doctor of Chiropractic and Classically trained Homeopath. Dr. Floyd is a 1977 graduate from the University of Pasadena, School of Chiropractic.
