The first and most crucial step in the Fountainhead Method is to stimulate the body heal. At Fountainhead we accomplish this through the use of homeopathy. There are other ways to stimulate the body to heal such as acupuncture, hydrotherapy, reiki and various other energetic therapies. We use homeopathy because we have found it to be the most specific and effective way to get the body to heal.
Homeopathy is imperative to our success in treating mental health disorders in adults and children. We see no other therapy work faster for alleviating acute anxiety, rage, depressive, manic, or mixed states, and homeopathy is free from side effects. Our entire treatment method revolves around homeopathy while all other therapies (including medications) are used to support the healing power of homeopathy.
What is Homeopathy?
