What Is Homeopathy?
Homoeopathy is a system that looks not only at your physical symptoms but at your mental and emotional symptoms as well. It brings together all aspects of your state of health, matching an individualized remedy to you.
What are Homeopathy Remedies?
Homeopathic remedies are free of chemical side-effects, but the standard precautions need to be taken against individual sensitivities. They do not poison, will not interact with other medications, and are non-addictive. They are safe for people of all ages including babies, the elderly and the pregnant. Homeopathic remedies can even be used with animals and plants.
Conditions That Can Be Treated
Homeopathy is effective for both acute and chronic problems. The correct remedy can resolve deep-seated complaints such as arthritic, digestive, and respiratory disorders just as easily as minor ones like headaches, hay fever, and the discomfort of teething.
Mental and emotional problems such as lack of confidence, depression, panic-attacks, and childrens behavioral disorders also respond well to homeopathy. It truly is a remarkable system of healing.
How Does Homeopathy Work?
Because Homoeopathy considers the physical, mental and emotional symptoms, it brings together all aspects of your state of health, creating individualised remedies. Finding the correct remedy uses the principle of Let likes cure likes (Similia Similibus Curentur).
For example cutting onions will produce streaming eyes and nose (usually lots of hot, clear fluid), and red eyes and nose. This is the picture of the remedy alium cepa. If we gave this remedy to a healthy person, h/she would display the symptoms of cutting the onions. If you visit your homoeopath with these symptoms, you would be given alium cepa as the correct remedy to take like cures like.
Another principle homoeopathy is based on is the minimal dose. This means we only want you to take the fewest number of doses to get you well. As soon as an improvement is seen, the number of doses you take is reduced.
