WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY ?
Homeopathy is a natural form of medicine and system of healing that is used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic health conditions.
Taking a holistic approach to health, each person is treated as a unique individual. Remedies are prescribed to match your individual nature as well as your symptoms, making it a treatment that supports the ‘whole’ of your being and not only one singular aspect.
It was founded in the late 18th century by respected German physician Samuel Hahnemann who studied and developed the system of homeopathy based on using minute and highly potentised forms of natural substances to cure disease.
How does it work?
Homeopathy is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’, which simply means a substance which can cause symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat similar symptoms. For example, too much coffee drinking can produce symptoms of nervous agitation and insomnia, in homeopathy, highly diluted form of coffee is used to treat symptoms of insomnia, agitation and restlessness.
How can it help you?
Homeopathy aims to trigger your body’s own healing mechanism by stimulating your natural life force energy. It can help the body to find its own balance and allow healing to occur in the most natural way. Long term it can help support and strengthen your overall health and constitution which can lead to reducing susceptibility to illness.
It can be used for both acute and chronic health conditions, emotional and mental well-being, immune support and stress related symptoms. In essence, Homeopathy aims to treat the person, not the disease, which makes it different from modern day medicine. We aim to create a healthy internal environment ( the body) with the understanding that pathology can be healed and toxicity released in a healthy organism.
It is safe, non toxic and can be used alongside conventional medicine. It can be used to support the holistic health of the whole family ( including babies and children) and safely used in pregnancy and childbirth.
