WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY?
Homeopathy is a system of natural medicine which uses highly diluted substances from plant, animal or mineral, to stimulate the body’s self healing abilities. It is based on the principle of "like cures like" where a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person can be used to cure those same symptoms in a "sick" person. Homeopathy is a holistic practice which treats the symptoms of the body and mind as a totality.
Homeopaths recognize that symptoms of ill-health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person, and that the whole person needs treatment, not just the isolated symptoms of a particular illness. This will ensure cure on a mental, emotional and physical plane that is non-invasive, gentle, quick, safe and permanent.
Homeopathy has been used successfully worldwide for over 200 years and is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world, and is the fastest growing. Millions of people in over 28 countries use homeopathic medicines on a regular basis and enjoy many benefits including relief of symptoms and more vibrant lives. It is part of the public health care systems of nations in Europe, South America and Asia. It has a laudable two-century clinical record.
There are hundreds of high-quality basic sciences, pre-clinical and clinical studies showing it works. It is beneficial on its own or as a complementary therapy for a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, as well as palliative relief in advanced cases or as a preventative medicine. Free of side-effects, homeopathy is the safest option for pregnant women, infants, children and the elderly.
