Homeopathy is a holistic form of medicine that activates the body’s own potential to heal itself. Homeopathy is based on the principle that “like cures like” – so a substance that triggers a particular response is introduced in a highly dilute, non-toxic form in order to treat similar symptoms.
Homeopathy is used by over 200 million people worldwide, both as a standalone system of treatment and alongside conventional medicine. The system is based on the pioneering work of the 19th century German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann.
Homeopathic remedies can be selected:
to re-balance health at a general level
to support organs and systems in the body based on a narrower organ focused picture
to treat an acute illness based on a much narrower focus on the particular symptoms and changes in this illness.
Treatment can be on one or more levels simultaneously, depending on need. Sometimes a single remedy resonates throughout and at other times a symphony composed of several different remedies is needed to resonate with the intricacy and complexity of the body and its functions.
