What Is Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a natural, holistic system of medicine which seeks to gently stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Homeopathy is different than most other medical approaches as it seeks to heal the individual, not to suppress disease symptoms. In this way the person is freed from their illness instead of becoming dependent on medication to control the symptoms. Instead of just treating your illness, homeopathy uses the symptoms that you are experiencing and matches these to the correct homeopathic medicine with an aim to treat the root of your disease and enhance health rather than suppress symptoms.

By using natural sources for medicines and then refining them for homeopathic application, homeopathy is a non-toxic, safe and effective approach to recover from dis-ease.

Homeopathy is a safe, gentle and effective form of medicine that can be used to treat many conditions, illnesses, and diseases. Homeopathic remedies are made from minute, potentized doses of substances from plant, mineral or animal sources. These medicines are prepared according to scientific principles that allow them to be easily utilized by your body to support your body’s attempts to heal itself. The basis for homeopathic prescribing is the Law of Similars, which states that the symptoms produced by a substance taken in a large dose can be cured by that same substance taken in a minute, potentized dose. The remedies safely carry the energetic information of the original substance into the body to trigger a self-healing response that returns the patient back to health.

An example of this can be seen in a case of insomnia. Coffee taken in large doses has been known to cause insomnia. The homeopathic remedy made from a minute, potentized dose of coffee, called Coffea, is often used to treat insomnia. Another example is a case of hay fever. People suffering from hay fever will experience watery, runny eyes and sneezing and the homeopathic remedy made from red onion known as Allium Cepa, is often the indicated remedy in these cases as we all cutting a onion will give these very same symptoms!
