WHAT IS HOMOEOPATHY ?

Homoeopathy is a complete system of medicine which treats the whole person, not just their symptoms. It acknowledges that emotional, mental and physical health are connected, and so helps the person to deal with their illness. The body's natural healing mechanism is stimulated, creating possibilities for regaining health.

Questions about Homoeopathy

 

WHY IS HOMOEOPATHY UNIQUE ?

Besides addressing specific health issues, homoeopathy addresses the individuals entire life-history. People who have received homoeopathic treatment on this basis usually find that their general state of health markedly improves. They are better able to resist illness and have a greater sense of well-being and purpose.

 

Questions about Homoeopathy

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I VISIT A HOMOEOPATH ?

Because homoeopathy treats the whole person, the first consultation takes about an hour and a half, allowing the homoeopath to develop a detailed picture of the person. A remedy is then prescribed for you as an individual which fits your whole state, not just a particular illness. Future appointments take less time, as the homoeopath assesses how things are progressing. Each person will respond at their own pace, depending on how recent the problem is and other factors, such as whether they are also taking conventional drugs.

   WHAT ARE THE REMEDIES ?

The remedies come from many different sources. Plants, minerals, metals, animal products, and some poisons are all used. The raw material is then diluted many times over in water and alcohol in order to release the healing power of the substance and to eliminate any toxic effects. Just one remedy is used at a time to stimulate the body's own healing powers. Homoeopathic remedies do not cause side-effects, and will not interefere with any orthodox medicine the person may be taking.
