Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine that involves treating an individual with highly diluted substances with the aim of triggering the body’s own natural system of healing. It works on the principle of like cures like, whereby a substance that produces symptoms in a healthy individual can, when prepared accordingly, alleviate those symptoms in a person who presents with that condition.
Everyone has their own innate healing mechanism as is seen with the simple examples of a common cold or a scrape on the arm, which if left uninterrupted usually heals itself. However, everyone is unique and in life people experience traumas, mental, emotional and physical illnesses which affect this mechanism and the body is left unable to rebalance itself. Homeopathy works to gently, effectively stimulate the body to rebalance. Crucially, it treats the person, not the disease.
As Homeopathy is non-toxic it is safe for use during every life stage, from pregnancy, infancy, through adulthood.
Homeopathy individualises, as it recognises that we are all unique and treats the whole person, not just a symptom.
Many people turn to Homeopathy when all other avenues have failed. Because it encourages individuals to take ownership of their health, and in certain cases teaches them to listen to their body and consider what their symptoms are telling them, it can be a life altering therapy.
