What is Homeopathy ?
Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine, safe and effective. It works by stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Homeopathy recognises that any given condition will be a result of underlying issues, physical and psychological, within the person as a whole. These factors will have a specific impact and be uniquely experienced by the individual. Homeopathic medicine is prescribed on these set of symptoms, and individualised for each patient.
Homeopathy works on the principal that “like cures like”; a substance, taken in small amounts, will stimulate the body’s ability to heal the symptoms that the substance can cause, if ingested in large amounts. For example, caffeine is a stimulant that can cause temporary insomnia. The homeopathic Coffee remedy – Coffea – which contains caffeine, may be used in “potentised” (highly diluted) doses, in order to relieve the symptoms of insomnia.
This system of medicine originated in the late eighteenth century by German physician Dr Samuel Hahnemann.
Homeopathic remedies are made from many different natural substances. These include plant material, minerals, metals and some animal material such as venoms and animal milks. Many of theses substances have been and still are used in many conventional medicines.
Homeopathy is one of the two most widely used forms of medicine today. With 10% of people in the UK discovering a system of medicine that is safe and effective. Homeopathy is currently the first choice of medicine for 500 million people Worldwide ( WHO Figures)
So Why Choose Homeopathy?
Although these substances are and have been used conventionally over the years, a lot of general medicines have lists of side affects that can stress other parts of the body or bring about further problems.
With Homeopathy, the substances used are highly diluted hundreds of times, this renders them much safer than conventional medicine whilst still being effective.
