Homeopathy is a method of healing which stimulates the body’s inherent knowledge to heal itself. The name Homeopathy is taken from the Greek word for ‘similar disease’. It is based on the ‘Law of Similars’, or in other words ‘like cures like’. The idea is that the substances that can cause the disease patterns in a healthy patient can (in minute doses) bring about healing in someone who is suffering from the same disease patterns.
Homeopathy recognises that illness is expressed by the body through symptoms and these are taking into account rather than suppressed. It works to stimulate the body’s own healing powers to rebalance any of the energy systems within the body to its optimum levels, thus treating the whole person rather than just a part of it.
Homeopathy in practice
Homeopathy can be used in almost any complaint ranging from sudden illness like flu, colds, sore throats, and stomach upsets to long-term illness such as asthma, allergies, arthritis, IBS, ME and menstrual problems. It is also very effective in emotional conditions such as long terms grief after a bereavement, stress and PMT. It is safe to use for babies and children with problems such as teething, shyness in school and exam stress.
Homeopathy is often turned to after long-term medial treatment has failed to produce effective results. It can be safely used alongside conventional medicine.
