What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a system of complementary medicine that has been in worldwide use for over 200 years. Putting the patient at the centre of their own healthcare. It is a natural system of medicine that works with the body's own ability to heal itself. Homeopathy safely restores balance, back to the body with gentle stimulating remedies.

History...

200 years ago a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, came upon the principle of homeopathy by accident. Hahnemann found that if he gave the patient a much diluted remedy made from a substance that could cause the symptoms a patient was suffering from, he could cure those very same symptoms. Homeopathy is based on the core principle that ‘like cures like’ i.e. a substance which can cause symptoms if taken in large doses, can be used in minute doses to treat similar symptoms. The idea that a substance can be damaging in large amounts, but beneficial in small amounts is not new to science, in fact this concept (‘hormesis’) has been around for decades and is increasingly well documented in such fields as biology and toxicology.


There are even examples of ‘like cures like’ in conventional medicine e.g.

· The stimulant amphetamine-based drug Ritalin is used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

· Small doses of allergens such as pollen are used to de-sensitise allergic patients.


All homeopathic remedies are highly diluted and therefore have no side effects. Hahnemann’s discoveries were a turning point in the history of medicine and since then homeopathy has proved itself a safe and highly effective therapy, to the point where today 450 million people around the world use homeopathy as their principle form of medicine.


Homeopathy has been shown to work on babies and animals, there are numerous published scientific trials have demonstrated its beneficial effects.
