What is Homoeopathy?
A system of medicine that turns to the body's inherent healing mechanism to treat disease, homoeopathy was created by a German physician, Samuel Hahnemann, in the early 1700s. It works on the principle that if you administer a small amount of substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person, you can also treat such symptoms in a sick person.
What are the Benefits of Homoeopathy?
Homoeopathic medicine can treat every kind of illness, whether acute or chronic, safely and effectively as it goes to the root of the problem rather than address its symptoms alone. Often, it is used for autoimmune conditions and can be combined with conventional medications. Homoeopathy can help with a variety of physical and psychological conditions, including:
- Headaches and migraines
- Psoriasis, eczema, acne and other skin problems
- Hay fever
- High blood pressure
- Digestive issues
- Chronic fatigue
- Wounds and injuries
