What is Homeopathy?
The Homeopathic Principle
Homeopathic principles have been known since the ancient Greeks, and doctors of the 16th and 17th centuries knew of the principle “like cures like”. But it was the German physician and chemist
Dr. Samuel Hahnemann of the late 18th century who created the system of Classical Homeopathy
we have today.
Homoeopathy uses the Law of Similars, treats "like with like” meaning that if natural substance can create illness in a healthy person, then the same substance in very dilute quantities, given to a patient can restore health again.
These natural substances are from the plant, mineral or animal kingdom and are prepared under strictly controlled conditions within a homeopathic pharmacy. The raw material is highly diluted and shaken (succussed) to prepare the many different strengths (potencies) of remedies.
Dr. Samuel Hahnemann
They are safe, non-toxic and non-addictive, so everyone including the elderly, children, pregnant women and babies can take them. Homeopathic vets also use these remedies in their treatment of animals.
Treatment Tailored To You
A key homeopathic principle, is that every person will produce their own individual combination of symptoms, even though they may be suffering from the same disease as their neighbour. Homeopathy does not treat diseases, but looks at treating the particular set of symptoms produced within each person.
“It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease, than to know what sort of disease a person has.”
Homeopathy is a very personalised and individual therapeutic system of medicine. Your friend or neighbour may need a very different remedy to you even though you may share the same disease label.
Whole You Healing Approach
A key homeopathic principle is not to suppress symptoms, but use them as key indicators to create a picture of your individual system response. This is then matched to an appropriate remedy that has the same symptom picture as you - Law of Similars treats “like with like”.
