What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is an alternative system of medicine that embraces a natural and holistic approach to healing. It recognises that all symptoms are an expression of dis-harmony within the person, therefore, it seeks to treat the person as a whole, with a view to restoring balance and wellbeing.
Homeopathy was founded over 200 hundred years ago by German MD Samuel Hahnemann, however, the main principles date back to Hippocrates, the Greek physician from 5 BC and it is documented that Paracelsus embraced the philosophy in the 16th century. It is widely used today in all parts of the world and has been used for generations by the British Royal Family.
How does Homeopathy work?
The principle of ‘like cures like’ is applied to find a suitable remedy to match the presenting complaint of each individual patient. For instance …. drinking coffee can keep us awake and alert, in homeopathy the remedy Coffea can be used to treat insomnia. A well chosen remedy will stimulate the correct healing process and maximise the body’s own healing process to restore the patient naturally back to the best level of health for that individual. It is gentle, subtle, yet very powerful.
A remedy is a specially prepared, highly diluted substance given mainly in the form of a sugar pill which is dissolved under the tongue.
Is Homeopathy safe?
From new born babies through to the elderly and including expectant/nursing mothers, the safe non-toxic remedies are suitable to be taken by Everyone even if they are currently taking regular medication.
