Homeopathy is a different approach to health care that can improve your health and prevent illness with cost effective remedies made from natural sources. It was developed as a system of medicine by a German physician called Samuel Hahnemann and has been used for more than 200 years.
The word ‘homeopathy’ comes from the Greek and means
‘similar suffering’. This refers to the central philosophy that a substance that can produce symptoms in a healthy person can cure those symptoms in a person who is ill. A tiny dose of a carefully selected substance is given to stimulate the body’s natural healing ability, enabling people to gently return to health.
Symptoms are seen to be the body’s way of communicating to us that all is not well. Homeopaths treat the whole person seeing each patient as a unique individual with a unique personality and unique symptoms, not as a collection of disease labels. Any condition (physical, mental or emotional) from which the body is capable of making a recovery can be treated by homeopathy.
Even if a serious condition is present, homeopathy may be able to promote a feeling of well-being even though it may be unable to cure the total condition. Using safe, non-toxic remedies homeopathic treatment works with your body’s own healing powers to bring health and well being.
