Dr. Timothy D. Francis was an honor roll student at both the University of Nevada, Reno, and the doctoral program at the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. Also a diplomate in Applied Kinesiology, Dr. Timothy D. Francis operates a private practice called Chiropractic Kinesiology in Las Vegas, where he employs a holistic approach to care and applies his expertise in areas including acupuncture, chiropractic care, nutrition, and homeopathy. Homeopathy is a holistic form of medicine that emphasizes a natural approach to patient care. Also known as homeopathic medicine, the term homeopathy is derived from a Greek word that means “like disease.” The principle that stems from this term, known as “like cures like,” holds that small levels of treatments cure the same ailments that they cause when they have been taken in excess amounts. In following the “like cures like” principle, homeopathic practitioners further focus on a comprehensive picture of a patient that acknowledges their physical, psychological, and emotional state, and prescribe a treatment that stimulates the body to heal itself. Other principles of homeopathy include prescribing the minimum treatment amount necessary. Homeopathic therapies are all completely natural and approved by the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States, which is recognized by the United States Food and Drug Administration.
