Homoeopathy - How Does It Work?
Classical Homoeopathy is a truely holistic approach to health. It is like a key opening a door so the body can detoxify and repair itself. The remedy is just the catalyst for this process. Your body does the work. This may feel unsettling in the beginning but it is an amazing journey of self discovery for those who take the challenge. The body can finally let go of old patterns that are no longer needed resulting in a healthier and more resilient body, mind and spirit.
Homoeopathy is the second-most widely used medicine globally and is recognised by the World Health Organisation as a valid form of health care. Homoeopathy aids in the management of a wide range of conditions, both acute and chronic. It is a holistic system of healthcare developed more than 250 years ago by a German Physician and chemist, Dr Samuel Hahnemann.
Homoeopathic prescriptions are tailored to the patient's specific symptoms and characteristics and based on the principle of "like cures like".
Hahnemann found that many substances, when administered to healthy people, produced symptoms similar to those experienced by sick people. He also discovered that illnesses could be managed by using small, specially prepared doses of these substances, if prescribed on the basis of similarity of symptoms. The word homoeopathy is derived from the Greek word homoios meaning similar and pathos meaning suffering. The foundation of homoeopathic philosophy is the Law of Similars.
For example, coffee stimulates the nervous system and the production of urine. A homoeopathic dose of coffee may treat a patient troubled with unusual mental activity and sleeplessness together with excessive production of urine.
Homoeopathic medicines strengthen a person's overall health, acting as a catalyst, stimulating and directing the body's ability to fight infection as well as resolving any underlying susceptibility to disorder. Homoeopathy views many symptoms in its quest to manage underlying tendencies to ill health.
In Britain there a five homoeopathic hospitals under the National Health Service (NHS) including the London Homoeopathic Hospital. The British Royal family has used it since Queen Victoria’s time and it is widely used throughout Europe. In France the most popular cold and flu remedy is a homoeopathic medicine and in India over 10,000 doctors use homoeopathic medicines to treat their patients.
Homoeopathy is a traditional medicine which can be used in conjunction with other medicines. However, if symptoms persist, consult your GP and in an emergency, the emergency department of your local hospital.
