Homoeopathy is an effective and scientific system of healing which assists the natural tendency of the body to heal itself.
What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine, developed by Samuel Hahnemann in 1796, that is entirely natural. It is complete because it can be applied to any condition or disease, and natural because it works by stimulating the body to heal itself. Homeopathy works on the basis that, given the right stimulus, the body can overcome virtually any disease. This is provided in the form of an immensely diluted and potentised remedy.
Who uses homeopathy?
The answer is quite simple – anyone! People are attracted to it because of its gentleness, power and ability to treat everyone as an individual. Many are first drawn to homeopathy as an alternative to potentially harmful drugs. It is safe and effective in treating adults, children, the elderly, pregnant women, and weak or fragile patients.
What is homeopathic treatment like?
When you attend for a consultation the homeopath will spend the necessary time getting to know all about you. You will be asked many questions about yourself, your lifestyle, the past health of yourself and your family, and about your illness. After your case has been carefully considered you will be prescribed a remedy (a homeopathic medicine), usually in the form of pills, powders or tablets which are easy to take and have a pleasant taste. They are non toxic, and not habit forming.
What can I expect?
Patients often feel a sense of well-being and optimism after taking a remedy. It occasionally happens that your symptoms may appear a little worse for a short time. This is a positive sign and shows that the remedy is taking effect, soon after which you will begin to feel that recovery is indeed taking place.
What can homeopathy treat?
Homeopathy can be used by anyone of any age for most physical and emotional complaints. It can also help where other forms of medicine find the symptoms too vague to treat but YOU know something is not right. Its gentle and non-invasive nature means many are first attracted to it, as an alternative in pregnancy or children’s health issues such as aches, asthma, eczema, sleep or emotional problems. It can help arthritis, hypertension, hay fever, allergies, menstrual and digestive disorders, to name but a few. Emotional states such as grief, trauma, depressions or anxiety can manifest themselves in physical symptoms which can prevent people from moving on. Homeopathic treatment can help overcome problems like these.
