What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy has been used successfully worldwide for over 200 years and is recognized as the second most therapeutic form of medicine in the world today. It is the fastest growing form of medicine and has had achieved acclaim over the years as it is able to treat patients on a very individual basis.
Homeopathy is a system of natural medicine that uses micro-doses of natural remedies from the plant, animal and mineral kingdoms to stimulate the body’s self-healing abilities. It is based on the principle of “like cures like” where a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person can be used to cure those same symptoms in a “sick” person. Homeopathy is a holistic practice which treats the symptoms of the body and mind as a totality. Homeopaths recognise that symptoms of ill-health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person, and that the whole person needs treatment, not just the isolated symptoms of a particular illness. This will ensure cure on a mental, emotional and physical plane that is non-invasive, gentle, quick, safe and permanent. Homeopathic medicine can be used preventatively, for chronic conditions as well as for acute conditions.
