Homeopathy is a safe, gentle and effective system of medicine that works by stimulating your body's own healing process. Established over 200 years ago, it uses a holistic approach that considers all aspects of an individual, including lifestyle, personality and medication.
Homeopathy works by stimulating your body's own healing process. It recognises that symptoms of illness are the body's attempt to heal itself.
The remedy chosen is based on the Law of Similars - "treating like with like" – acting as a catalyst to promote the person's own natural healing ability.
Homeopathy uses tiny doses of safe, non toxic substances to activate the healing process. This means that it is particularly suitable for pregnant women, the elderly, those with drug allergies and children.
Homeopathy can be used to improve a wide range of physical, mental and emotional problems – both minor and persistent. Because it also improves overall health, clients typically report a general sense of well being and other positive changes in their lives.
Health problems that can respond well to homeopathy include eczema, asthma, hayfever, acne and skin problems, menstrual and menopausal problems, bowel and urinary problems, migraine and recurrent illnesses like tonsillitis.
If you are taking prescribed medication for a long term problem, this does not prevent you benefiting from homeopathic treatment. Over time you may find symptoms that have not been addressed by your existing medication resolve.
Homeopathy can also ease the after-effects of prescribed drugs and other addictive substances.
Homeopathic remedies stimulate the body to heal itself; it therefore improves the health of the whole person.
In 2005 the World Health Organisation brought out a draft report, which showed homeopathy was beneficial. In the past 25 years there have been over 200 trials into homeopathy, the results of which have concluded the benefits of the treatment went beyond results that could be explained by the placebo effect.
In 2005, the Bristol Homeopathic Hospital carried out a published study on 6500 patients. 70% of them showed an improvement in health.
There are more than 4,000 homeopathic remedies that have no toxic side effects. This enables each prescription to be unique and tailor made to each individual patient.
Remedies are made from one substance, so we know the exact ingredients.
Homeopathic practitioners train for 4 years to qualify. They study Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology as well as studying the philosophy of homeopathy and the 4000 remedies available for use.
