“Homeopathy is the second largest medicine in the world”. World Health Organization.
Homeopathy treats the “whole person” which means that two people presenting with the same complaint may receive a different medicine based on their individual symptoms and emotional response to the illness.
Homeopathy was developed by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, over 200 years ago and is based on the principle of “like curing like” although the principles go back further to Hippocrates & Paracelsus.
Homeopathy is a complete system of natural evidence based medicine. It offers holistic, individual and integrated treatment with potentized medicines, which aim to trigger the body’s natural system of healing, with lasting results.
A wide range of both acute and chronic illnesses may benefit from homeopathic medicine. Acute illnesses commonly prescribed for include: sports injuries, coughs, colds, and pain, diarrhea, hay fever, infection & travel sickness.
Homeopathy may also be of help in deeper, more chronic diseases, including a wide range of illnesses: autoimmune diseases and on-going chronic complaints for which conventional medicine often has nothing further to offer.
The central principle of homeopathy is ‘like cures like’, or the Law of Similars (Latin: similia similibus curantur). This principle dates back to the Greek physician Hippocrates who lived in the 5th century BC. This law states that any substance, which is capable of producing symptoms in a healthy person, will remove similar symptoms occurring as an expression of disease.
Homeopathy assists the body to heal itself, which brings the patient to a higher level of health.
The homeopathic practitioner endeavors to search for and treat the origin of the disease.
The homeopathic practitioner treats the whole person, believing all symptoms are interrelated, and seeks to select a medicine most closely covering that totality of symptoms.
Discovered by the German doctor Samuel Hahnemann over 200 years ago, homeopathic medicine is based upon sound scientific principles and the laws of nature. Far from being ideas-based, homeopathy is a completely evidence-based, empirical medicine - a unique concept when it was founded.
Today, extensive clinical experience, observation and research continue to support homeopathy’s effectiveness for a wide range of complaints for men, women, children, infants and the elderly.
