Homeopathy is a complete system of healing that works with your body’s own natural ability to heal itself.
Homeopathy has been used in the UK for over two hundred years, but has an honourable tradition dating back to ancient Greece. It was Samuel Hahnemann, a brilliant doctor working in 1796, who developed the scientific and philosophical foundations of this gentler way of healing. These scientific principles form the basis of successful homeopathic practice today.
It is the second largest form of medicine in the world with over 30 million people in Europe having already benefited.
Homeopathy is holistic (considers the whole person), considers the individual and is suitable for everyone, including babies and the elderly.
It is based on the principle that you can treat ‘like with like‘. That is, a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large doses can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms. It is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing. Based on their specific symptoms, a homeopath will match the most appropriate medicine to each patient.
Homeopathic medicines (remedies) are prepared by specialist pharmacies.
You can take remedies alongside ordinary medicines if you need to, indeed you should never discontinue medicines prescribed by your healthcare professionals without liaising with them first.
