Further to the use of homeopathy in the treatment of animals, homeopathy is also used in the treatment of plants. Yes, plants are sentient life forms and respond beautifully to the essence of remedies. The book “The Secret Life of Plants” by Tompkins & Bird is a fascinating account of the physical, emotional, and spiritual relations between plants and man.
Today we face the negative impact of the excessive use of mono-crop agricultural chemicals (ie. herbicides, pesticides, etc.). These harsh chemicals destroy the diversity of life that is necessary for a harmonious ecosystem.
The plant kingdom therefore suffer similar stresses as humans. The totality of symptoms can therefore be used to prescribe the correct remedy in order to bring the ecosystem back into balance.
Typical conditions that can be treated with homeopathy:
- Weak soils (ie. low nutrient levels)
- Bacterial infections
- Fungal infections
- Mechanical injuries/trauma
- Absent fruit
