By Anna Lubaszka, Classical Homeopath

Did you know that homeopathy is a safe, green and ecologically sustainable medicine?

  • The production of homeopathic medicines creates little if any toxic waste.
  • Homeopathic medicines are produced with little equipment and very small amounts of natural resources.  This considerate manufacturing process leads to preservation of natural resources and a small carbon footprint.
  • Only a small amount of the original substance is required to produce homeopathic medicines.
  • Homeopathic medicines never exhaust natural resources; there is negligible environmental impact and no question of over-consumption.
  • Compared to the waste stream produced by pharmacological manufacturing and by hospitals, the waste produced by a homeopathic pharmacy is infinitely small.
  • No chemicals are added or used in homeopathic remedies and therefore very little waste (in the form of alcohol and botanical or biological matter) is biodegradable.
  • Homeopaths do not test remedies on animals or sick people. Instead, they rely on healthy people who willingly participate in the homeopathic proving process.
