Homeopathy is a safe and effective system of treatment for babies, children and adults. It stimulates the body’s own healing power to strengthen the immune system and promote wellbeing. It looks upon symptoms of illness as signs of disharmony within the patient at all levels; mental, physical and emotional. In treating the person as a whole, harmony within the patient is restored, hence removing symptoms of illness.
Dr Samuel Hahnemann developed Homeopathy over 200 years ago when he discovered the ‘law of similar’ which explains ‘that which makes sick shall heal’. Homeopathy uses remedies that are gentle, subtle and powerful. They are from minute quantities of naturally occurring substances. For instance we know that when cutting an onion, we experience a runny nose, a sore throat, stinging watery eyes. So a homeopathic remedy from ‘Allium Cepa’ (onion) could be given to patients who suffers from hayfever.
During your first visit, your homeopath will need to know more than just your physical symptoms, but also about you as a person. You will be asked a series of questions designed to establish a homeopathic picture of you and your health. You can ask questions to clarify your treatment. Depending on the length of time you had your symptoms, treatment can take between just a couple of sessions to several appointments and our homeopath will discuss treatment times with you.
Remedies are usually given in tablet or liquid form.
