homeopathy

a complementary approach to healthcare...

A brief history... Homeopathy was founded by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann M.D. (1755-1847), it's the second largest system of medicine in the world and used by over 200 million people. Homeopathy is based on the principle of 'like treats like', a principle dating back to Hippocrates (460-377BC). It was Hahnemann who developed it into a system of therapeutics after he became dissatisfied with the damaging side-effects associated with the medicinal treatments of his day. Simply put... a substance that is known to cause symptoms in a healthy person*, when taken as a specially prepared homeopathic remedy, is known to help treat similar symptoms in an unhealthy person e.g. too much caffeine in large quantities is known to cause sleeplessness but when caffeine is taken as a highly diluted homeopathic remedy it has the potential to help treat people suffering with insomnia

Why Homeopathy... because it views a person as an individual taking into account their physical and emotional make-up and aims to get to the very root cause of disorders/imbalances. A term used in homeopathy is never been well since which is so often the root cause – this link takes you to an article that defines this principle perfectly. Homeopathic remedies gently stimulate the body's own instinctive ability to self-heal in a safe, gentle and humane way
