Has a record of clinically proven effectiveness for over 200 years. It works byenergetically stimulating the body’s natural healing response.
Homeopathy is the fascinating science of healing an illness or disease with very small amounts of herbs, minerals and elements that naturally stimulate the body’s own healing powers.
Homeopathic medicine was founded in the late 1700s in Germany and is now used worldwide. It is based on the philosophy that you can treat ‘like with like’, that is, a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat and thereby alleviate those same symptoms.
Homeopaths treat the person with specially prepared, highly dilute preparations designed to stimulate a healing response in the body to fight infection as well as resolving any underlying susceptibility to disease.
The Homeopath does this by firstly assessing the person as a whole, looking at the physical, emotional and hereditary factors, as well as any history of illness. As each person is unique, the practitioner will treat the patient according to their individual symptoms.
Any plant, mineral or animal substance can be used as a remedy and these very small amounts of remedies can act very strongly when used properly.
Homeopathy when used correctly is safe for all ages, including men, women, children, babies, pregnant women and the elderly and may be used in the treatment of chronic illness, acute conditions and minor accidents.
Homeopathy can help with many conditions including:
- coughs and colds
- food poisoning
- travel sickness
- skin conditions
- hormone imbalances
- migraines and headaches
- behavioural problems
- digestive disturbances
- bites, stings and hives
- bruising injuries
- trauma and shock
Homeopathy is easy to administer and is therefore great to use in the treatment of animals, babies, children and the elderly. Homeopathy is now an accepted treatment in the medical field with over 100 double blind trials completed. Many of these trials are published in prestigious medical journals proving the success and efficacy of Homeopathic Medicine.
