Homeopathy is a gentle yet effective form of treatment for many conditions, illnesses and diseases. It is holistic in nature, which means that in determining treatment the whole person is considered as well as the specific problem or illness. The medicines used in homeopathy are minute doses of natural substances (plants, minerals etc)

Homeopathy first gained prominence in the 19th century after extensive pioneering work by the German physician and chemist, Dr Samuel Hahnemann. The origins of homeopathy date back from the 5th century BC, when the Greek physician Hippocrates was known as the “father of medicine” introduced homoeopathic remedies to his medicine chest.

The basic principals for homeopathy are that the natural state of the human body is one of health and that we possess the innate ability to overcome the disease. The energy, or vitality, that we all have within us enables us to grow, repair damaged tissue, respond to stresses in our environment and generally function with a sense of well being. When something happens to us that causes us to feel undue stress, we start to produce symptoms.

Homeopathically, symptoms of an illness are seen as the body’s positive attempt to heal itself. By giving the appropriate homeopathic remedy, this natural healing energy is stimulated and the body can once again restore itself to balance. Homeopathic remedies allow the body to heal itself, without any side effects. It has a long-term benefit in that you improve your general state of health ( immunity), thus making you less susceptible to diseases in the future.

Homeopathic treatment works for acute (short-term) illnesses, chronic (long-term) ailments and the aim is to prevent as well as to treat illnesses. It is suitable for all age groups from newborn babies to the very old.

The name Homeopathy comes from the Greek word “homios” meaning like and “pathos” meaning suffering. Homeopathy simply means treating like with like. In practice, this means a substance that causes symptoms of illness in a well person can also cure similar symptoms when they result from illness. This view is the opposite of conventional (allopathic) medicine, which treats illness with an antidote rather than a similar substance. For example, an allopathic doctor would treat diarrhoea with a substance that causes constipation, while a homeopathic doctor would treat it with a minute dose of a substance that would actually cause diarrhoea if given in a large dose. All the homeopathic remedy is doing is to assist the body to return to its normal state.

What can Homeopathy do for you?

Homeopathic treatment can be beneficial for the whole range of human diseases.

Infectious diseases from sore throats, influenza and scabies to measles and pneumonia. Diseases of all the major systems of the human body, of the heart and circulatory system, from hypertension and heart conditions to varicose veins, of the respiratory system, including croup and asthma, of the digestive system, from mouth ulcers to irritable bowl syndrome, of the urinary and reproductive systems of both men and women, for example cystitis, kidney infections and in women, endometriosis , and other gynecological conditions, of the hormonal and nervous systems, including multiple sclerosis, thyroid disorders, menopause and all kinds of period problems, of the skin, for example eczema, psoriasis, acne and warts, of the musculoskeletal system, effective in sport injuries and all rheumatic and arthritic problems.

Being holistic, homeopathy treats the mind and the emotions as well:

Mental problems: these may be minor , such as poor concentration in students, or failing memory or conditions arising from serious pathology like Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia etc, Emotional Problems: all kinds of emotional problems respond well to homoeopathy: insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, obsessions, manic-depression etc.

Homeopathy also provides treatment for psychosomatic disorders, or for cases where it is known whether there is a physical basis for the symptoms. Either way, the correct homeopathic remedy will work. This is because the remedy enables the vital energy of the patient to do whatever is necessary for healing, whether a mental or physical change is needed.

Homeopatic treatment used in conjunction with the prescribed treatment regiment for diabetes, hypertension and AIDS, improves the overall state of health and vitality of the individual. One of the main benefits of homeopathy has not been mentioned. This is simply feeling better. Feeling better in yourself is often the first sign of a remedy working.
