For some things, yes: Conventional medicine is excellent in emergencies, overwhelming infections, and conditions requiring surgery. Homeopathy excels in supporting healing after the above crises, and in chronic conditions not otherwise helped. You'll need an experienced practitioner who can accurately perceive your problem & prescribe the 1 out of 4000 remedies that specifically matches your symptoms.
