You are probably happy with over-the-counter remedies, conventional medicine, or readily available natural remedies like Echinacea or Vitamin C. You will benefit from occasional trips to a physical therapist, such as an osteopath or chiropractor. You may never resolve your health problems, but you are content to live with them, and you hope you never have a crisis. Why not give homeopathic remedies a try for acute problems like colds and coughs? They can give quicker results. And check out Natural Health Answers and the Health Topics for more information on natural supplements.


You already know what you want in life, and you do not like settling for second best, even if it means waiting a while. Naturally in an emergency, you would see your doctor, or a physical therapist, but in the meantime, no grass will be growing under your feet. You would rather look after your health now, than wait for a crisis to come along later. You may have occasional disappointments, but you believe in maintaining a healthy immune system. You know that happiness, and perhaps spirituality, are also important for your wellbeing, and look for therapies that include these. Homeopathic Treatment will suit you very well, both for immediate difficulties and for long-term or emotional problems.


You understand that planning ahead is the best policy, but you don’t always like waiting. You are thinking about what matters most to you in your life, you are searching but have not yet found what is right for you. You like to keep your options open. Homeopathy and natural remedies will suit you well for acute problems like colds, coughs, and children’s illnesses, and even intermediate health problems like period pain, headaches or digestive upsets.
