What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that was developed by a German medical doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, in the early 1800’s. It focuses on
the unique characteristics of each individual and addresses every concern that a patient has, from their physical well-being to their emotional and
Homeopathic remedies are made out of plants, minerals and other organic substances. Some are commonly known, such as the daisy, while others
are rare. When remedies are made, they are diluted in concentration. In fact, the more diluted they are, the stronger they become. These remedies
stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes.
The science of Homeopathy is based on the principle that ‘like cures like’ or the ‘Law of Similars’. If a substance given to a healthy person can
produce certain symptoms, then that substance in homeopathic potency can cure the same or similar symptoms in a sick person.
How Does Homeopathy Work?
Homeopathic remedies promote a person’s own natural healing processes so that the body heals itself, i.e. it works with the immune system, not
Sickness involves the whole person, psychologically, as well as physiologically. People are not sick because they have a local disease, they have a local
disease because they are sick, and each sickness or disease is a highly individual matter, and must be treated as such.
Homeopathy treats the individual, and not the illness, on all levels to bring about balance.
Is Homeopathy Safe?
The highly diluted nature of homeopathic remedies means that they are non-toxic, therefore they are safe.
It is, however, important to remember that on the way towards cure ,temporary exacerbation of symptoms may occur. These are known as
homeopathic aggravations and they indicate a release of underlying problems and are therefore seen as ultimately helpful, although temporarily
unpleasant. It may be an aggravation of the current condition, or it may be old symptoms resurfacing in order to be cleared. This will be a temporary
aggravation and is necessary in order for true cure to take place.
