Homeopathy, treating the individual, helping you to heal yourself.
Homeopathy is suitable for everyone, young and old, at any age or stage of life. Many parents choose to maintain their children’s well-being through using Homeopathy, and engaging with a fully qualified professional Homeopath. Homeopathy is a gentle and potent system of medicine. Homeopathy can address many health conditions and concerns by optimizing general health and well-being. Homeopathy treats the person who is unwell, restoring dynamic, good health and triggering a return to harmony and balance in the system.
Homeopathy is a long established approach to health care, used extensively worldwide. The principles of healing underpinning Homoeopathy, are the treatment of “Like with Like” which goes back thousands of years to the ancient Greek philosophers.
Homeopathy recognizes symptoms of ill health as a sign of general disharmony. These symptoms may appear to be localised, yet a whole system attempt to resolve inner disturbance is actually taking effect. The symptom picture, that unhappy state of imbalance, that “being ill at ease within yourself”, is our diseased state.
Homeopathy stimulates the body’s own capacity to self-heal. Treatment is always individualized: two people with the same illness can be given completely different remedies. In Homeopathy, mind, emotions and body are seen as inter-connected aspects of our individual self.
Homoeopathic medicines utilize minute doses of a chosen natural substance, which reflects the symptom picture, and stimulate the body’s own healing responses. These ‘potentised’ medicines enhance and engage our capacity for self-healing.
In Homeopathic consultation your practitioner will need to find out as much as she can about you as an individual – your specific symptoms, general energy levels, sleep patterns, lifestyle, the stresses and challenges that you experience, your medical history and any medication you are currently taking. This information will of course be completely confidential. The Homeopathic remedies you will receive will generally be in the form of tablet or liquid.
Recommendations will be made regarding diet, exercise and lifestyle, as these are all important to establishing good health. Clients are encouraged to maintain their relationship with their GP as at times the two systems of healthcare may provide a beneficial complementary approach to health requirements. You are likely to see your Homeopath at monthly intervals at first. The full duration of treatment varies depending on the individual.
