Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine prescribed to suit the individual needs of each person. It does this by stimulating the body’s natural healing process without toxic side effects. As a matter of fact, more and more people are becoming concerned about the effect drugs have on the body and particularly in relation to children, pregnant women, the elderly, and immune-compromised. Therefore, homeopathy, being a form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), is a beneficial chemical-free option. Furthermore, in most incidences homeopathy is balancing and not suppressive. Importantly, the aim is to focus on and treat the individual and the unique reaction to illness as opposed to simply treating a disease. As the famous Hippocrates quote goes, “It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has”. Homeopathy is based on a basic principle of ‘like cures like’. This means that something which produces specific reactions or symptoms in a person, can also be capable of treating such symptoms (or similar) in smaller dilute amounts. This principle works on the basic idea of the body’s inherent ability to heal itself and maintain balance. Homeopathic remedies gently activates this powerful process. This form of traditional medicine may be used together with conventional medicine for either acute or chronic illness therapy. Client treatment might not be just homeopathic. It can include supplementation, dietary advice, herbal remedies, as well as lifestyle changes, linking this to another form of therapy
