Sometimes one single dose is all that is needed. While Homoeopathy is successfully used for all sorts of physical symptoms, its greatest strength may lie in its ability to also assist in mental and emotional states, with profound results. Its remedies can help with phobias, insecurities, anxiety, depression, irrational thoughts, insomnia, lack of confidence, relationship and sexual issues, grief, and anger, to name but a few!
