Green Health Care, as defined by the Teleosis Institute, is based on the understanding that human and environmental health are inextricably linked. This approach to health and wellness focuses on sustainable medical practices that are good for people and the environment.
Homeopathy is considered an Ecologically Sustainable Medicine because it meets the following criteria:
- Safe and harmless
- Clean and non-toxic
- Adaptable and flexible
- Renewable, because the majority of the remedies come from plants
- Synergistic with human health and planetary well-being
“By making a healthy choice as to what type of medicines we use and what we put in our body, we have a profound impact on the environment. Ecologically Sustainable Medicine gives you greater health and well-being while promoting the health and utility of your family, your community, and the global ecosystem.” Dr. Joel Kreisberg, DC, MA, “Healing Without Harm: Ecologically Sustainable Medicine”, Symbiosis Journal, Summer 2003: page 2.
Lifelong Homeopathy is a strong supporter of sustainable and environmental practices in all aspects of life. Not only do we strive to make all of our products and services as environmentally friendly as possible, we also endeavor to implement other sustainable business practices. The remedies we recommend are in glass vials instead of plastic. We use energy efficient products, i.e. energy efficient windows, lighting, and energy star office machines. Using sustainable building practices we insulate, use natural wood flooring, low VOC paint, and environmentally friendly cleaning products.
