To maintain a balanced and healthy enjoyment of life, we need to be as resilient and vital as we can possibly be. Homeopathy helps us achieve our ultimate potential in health on all levels.
Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine that stimulates the body’s natural self-healing and immune systems. A homeopathic prescription causes a reaction in the person, but it is only homeopathic when it matches the symptoms of the individual person. It is the process of prescribing that makes it homeopathy.
Homeopathy is based on specific laws and principles that differ to those of conventional medicine, as does its approach to the patient and concept of health.
Individuality, is fundamental to all aspects of homeopathy. Different people with seemingly the same complaint will experience it differently and have some diferent symptoms, therefore they would require different homeopathic remedies.
Homeopathy is based on the principle The ‘Law of Similars’, which concludes:- whatever symptoms a substance causes in a healthy person, that same substance has the power to cure those same symptoms once homeopathically prepared.
An example of this is the onion – recall your last experience of cutting up an onion, the stinging sensation, the watery running eyes and nose. These symptoms, which may occur with colds and hay-fever, are likely to be relieved with the homeopathically prepared remedy made from onion (known as Allium Cepa).
How long has Homeopathy been used?
Homeopathy has been used in the UK for over two hundred years, but has an honourable tradition dating back to ancient Greece. It was Samuel Hahnemann, a brilliant doctor working in 1796 who developed the scientific and philosophical foundations of this gentler way of healing. These scientific principles form the basis of successful homeopathic practice today.
