What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a gentle, yet deep healing and effective system of medicine based on the principle like cures like.
Founded by the German Doctor Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). Initially, homeopathy removes the underlying emotional or mental stress of chronic disease, then acts to release the illness from the body externally.
Homeopathy is gentle and often enhances the quality of life as it works through the healing process.
What can be treated by Homeopathy?
Homeopathy may help in the management of the following complaints:
Emergency/first aid complaints for example bites, hives, traumas, injuries, emotional shock, etc.
Acute (self-limiting) complaints for example colds, coughs, diarrhoea, earache, food poisoning.
Chronic (recurring) complaints for example hormonal imbalance, headaches, depression, anxiety, problems with sleeping.
How does it work?
Based on the same healing paradigm as acupuncture, homeopathy works with the chi or vital energy of the body to activate the body's own healing system.
Homeopathy is based on a principle called the ʻlaw of similarsʼ. Meaning the substance which can cause symptoms in a healthy individual, can alleviate those same symptoms in a person who is unwell.
An example of this principle is coffee. In some people too much coffee can create heightened mental and physical alertness, they become " hyper" overstimulated and unusually reactive to stimuli such as sounds and smells.
When someone presents at a homeopathic clinic with symptoms of insomnia, headache, irritability and an over-stimulated nervous system- Coffea cruda prepared according to special homeopathic principles, may be chosen to alleviate their condition. While coffee can keep you up at night, homeopathic coffea cruda can alleviate insomnia.
