Homoeopathy is an alternative form of medicine used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions. The holistic nature of homoeopathy means each person is treated as a unique individual and their body, mind, spirit and emotions are all considered in the management and prevention of disease. Taking all these factors into account, a homoeopath will select the most appropriate medicine based on the individual’s specific physical symptoms, as well as their emotional and situational symptoms, to prescribe a remedy to stimulate their own healing ability. A homoeopathic patient is listened to and cared for.
Homoeopathic medicines rarely cause side-effects. This means when used appropriately under the guidance of a qualified homoeopath they can be taken by people of all ages, including babies, children and pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Homoeopathy is sustainable and environmentally healing.
Homoeopathy is now used worldwide, with a 200-year history of clinical experience. It is recognised by the World Health Organisation as a valid form of healthcare. Homoeopathy has legal recognition as an individual system of medicine in 42 countries and is recognized as a part of complementary and alternative medicine in 28 others.
Homoeopathic remedies use heavily diluted animal, plant, mineral substances, which are usually delivered to the body in pill form and allowed to dissolve under the tongue or taken via drops placed directly under the tongue. If taken in a large amount, these substances would cause the very symptoms that they are trying to cure, but in highly diluted amounts they work by subtly stimulating the body’s defence system to cure itself.
With over 3,000 remedies to choose from, choosing a homoeopathic course of treatment can be daunting, which is why it is important to consult a professional homoeopath.
