HOMEOPATHY

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT HOMEOPATHY

For over 200 years, homeopathy has continued to grow in popularity as people seek more natural alternatives to address their health ailments. Although it attracts criticism as it defies modern “scientific” parameters, the benefits and research of homeopathy are increasing globally.

HOMEOPATHIC PRINCIPLES

Homeopathic principles were developed by a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, in the late 18th Century. He found the medicine of his time was causing more harm than good. This led him to develop the homeopathic principles to heal people gently, rapidly and reliably causing minimal side-effects.

At the beginning of the 20th Century 15–20% of doctors were homeopaths in Europe and the US, despite criticisms from the conservative medical profession. Hahnemann's theories have been demonstrated for over 200 years to patients all over the world.

A homeopathic remedies aims to stimulate the innate healing power of the individual to create homeostasis; that is a state of inner balance.

THE LAWS OF SIMILAR

Homeopathy's paradigm principle states, that “any substance which can cause a set of symptoms in a healthy person can cure those same symptoms in a sick person”. Thus, the symptoms experienced are essential to choosing the correct remedy.

Homeopaths, like most natural therapists, don’t differentiate the person from the disease; general health is therefore assessed by the person’s energy levels, the stress factors experienced and the state of the emotional wellbeing along specific physical symptoms. As a result, the remedy selected will correspond to the person’s total state.

HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES

Homeopathic remedies are derived from plants, minerals and other naturally-occurring substances. They are prepared by a unique highly controlled process of dilution, which renders them non-toxic, yet paradoxically, makes them more effective.

Homeopathic remedies are diluted using a specific process of succession. This process releases the healing potential of a substance and minimizes any potential side effects. After a dose is given the individual's response is carefully observed, and the remedy is repeated or changed as necessary.

Homeopathy is used to treat people rather than illnesses, anyone, whatever their diagnosis, can benefit from homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy supports people with both acute and chronic conditions including some infections, seasonal allergies, gynecological issues, and digestive disturbances.

It is important to recognise the limitations of homeopathic treatment. When structural changes happen in the body they can seldom be reversed. However, using homeopathy can often assist recovery and a sense of wellbeing.
