What is Homeopathy?

  • A 200-year-old holistic system of therapeutic healing, which is based on the idea that ‘like treats like’. Symptoms are treated with a minute dose of a substance that, in large doses, would cause similar symptoms in a healthy person.
  • The active ingredients are given in a highly diluted form to avoid toxicity.
  • According to the Homeopathic Medical Association UK, the most effective remedy is one which matches the physical symptoms, the mental and emotional symptoms, and the general sensitivities of the person.
  • Remedies are discovered through a standard procedure called a ‘proving’, where a substance is tested on a group of volunteers.

What are the consultations like?

  • The patient is treated holistically, with detailed history-taking, examination and investigation. It is a gentle, non-invasive environment, and the information is treated as confidential.
  • Prescribing is based on all aspects of the condition and the patient’s personality and lifestyle.
  • The remedy may be given in a tablet, pillule, powder or liquid.
  • As in most other therapies, the number of appointments and remedies varies for each patient according to their condition and its severity.
  • The speed of recovery varies according to the nature and history of the illness being treated.

Is it safe?

  • Because the remedies are highly dilute, they are gentle. Healing begins from within your body, strengthening your Immune System and health, without danger of damaging side effects.
  • Homeopathy is considered suitable for allages, and even during pregnancy.
  • Remedies are considered safe alongside conventional treatment and medicines.
