Homeopathy - a Holistic Therapy
Homeopathy puts the individual person at the centre of treatment. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, so each person is treated with regard to their own unique physical and emotional characteristics.
A physical symptom, for example a headache or a pain in the joints, is the body's way of communicating to us that it is in need of attention. The right dosage of the appropriate homeopathic medicine will trigger a curative response, helping you to return to a state of balance and good health again.
Naturally occurring substances are used in minute doses to stimulate the body's inherent ability to heal itself.
Hippocrates, the famous Greek physician and "Father of Medicine", already pointed out that the most vital factor to overcome illness was a person's own healing ability.
Although the action of the remedies (as homeopathic medicines are commonly called) is gentle and subtle, the effects can be powerful and long lasting. They are without side-effects and non-addictive which means they can be used safely for everyone - from pregnancy and infancy through childhood and adolescence to older age.
Homeopathic medicines are prepared by special pharmacies and are regulated by the Health Products Regulatory Authority.
Homeopathy as we know it today was developed as a system of medicine by a German doctor called Samuel Hahnemann over 200 years ago. Since then it has stood the test of time, providing effective treatment for millions of people around the world. It proved invaluable during the great cholera and scarlet fever epidemics of the 19th century, with very impressive statistics.
