Homeopathy

Over 200 years ago Samuel Hahnemann discovered a new way of treating illness, in contrast to the blood letting, purging and emetics of the time; homeopathy was a very safe treatment. When compared to traditional medicine of the time homeopathy has helped more people to recover from illnesses and has killed less people e.g. cholera, typhus and influenza.

Homeopathy works on the principle that ‘like cures like’, an illness will be treated with a substance that could produce similar symptoms in a healthy person e.g. a person poisoned by eating Deadly Nightshade berries (Belladonna) would develop a red flushed face, a high fever with dry burning heat and hallucinations, if an unwell person has this similar picture then Belladonna may be prescribed e.g. Scarlet Fever, tonsillitis.

Homeopathy can be used for acute illnesses e.g. coughs, colds, stomach upsets. For first aid e.g. travel sickness, bruising, insomnia, shock. Or it can be given as a constitutional remedy to help with deeper seated illnesses e.g. depression, arthritis, eczema, menopausal disorders. It does not replace medical assistance for serious illnesses.

What to expect at consultations

During a homeopathic consultation a very detailed picture of the person and disease process is built up and an appropriate remedy is given in tablet, powder or liquid form to be taken in a clean mouth as often as prescribed. Only enough remedy is taken to stimulate the bodies own healing powers.

Homeopathic remedies are given in highly diluted forms and are safe for all to use and can be used along side conventional medicine.
