Homeopathy is a holistic medicine which uses specially prepared, highly diluted substances with the aim of triggering the body’s own healing mechanisms.
This system of medicine is based on the principle of “like treats like”. This means that a substance which can cause symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat similar symptoms.
There are many reasons people choose to use homeopathy:
Reason 1 - It can be used for so many health issues
Homeopathy can be used for short-term issues such as coughs, stings, and headaches.
However, it is also highly effective for recurrent problems such as infections, acne, period pains, and menopausal symptoms.
Chronic health issues, including eczema, hay fever, hormonal issues, and insomnia respond very well to homeopathic treatment.
Reason 2 - It is tailored to you and your specific symptoms
Homeopathy is different to traditional medicine as it treats the person rather than the disease. When you see a homeopath, they will focus on your own particular symptoms – what makes it better or worse, when it started, and the causation, as well as your personality traits.
Reason 3 - It helps your body's natural ability to heal itself
The homeopathic remedies work by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanism. The remedies are made from mineral, plant and animal sources. A homeopath will select the remedy that best matches the presenting symptoms, both physical and emotional.
Reason 4 - It treats both mind and body
Homeopathy is based on the philosophy that emotions, mind and body are all affected by each other.
Reason 5 - It can be used for any age
Homeopathy can be used for all ages. The remedies are safe, gentle, and non-addictive, with no side effects. They are great to use during hormonal changes, such as puberty and menopause.
Reason 6 - It can increase overall vitality
For many health issues, consultations with a homeopath as well as relieving your symptoms can also increase your overall vitality and ability to ride the stresses of life, and help to achieve your goals.
How does a homeopath decide which remedies to prescribe?
During a consultation, your whole health history will be discussed. If you have a number of health issues, you are treated holistically, and all of the symptoms are taken into consideration.
All these will lead a homeopath to decide which of the many remedies to prescribe. A Repertory and Materia Medica will be used. There are so many remedies for each ailment but there are just a few that will be most beneficial to you.
