What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine aimed at supporting and triggering a body’s natural ability to heal.
The Homeopathic approach is a holistic one. It looks at the whole person while taking into consideration all symptoms and peculiarities experienced at the time.
A Homeopath considers physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of health well as personal (health) history and family health trends as interconnected factors in someone’s presenting health issue.
Homeopathic prescriptions are made by systematically choosing and matching a remedy to a person’s symptom totality, according to set laws and theories.
A Homeopathic remedy carries the energetic imprint of the original substance it is derived from and is a highly dilute and powerful direct stimulus to ones ‘self healing ability’ thus restoring balance on an energetic and deep level and affecting change in a persons health experience.
A prescription sets in motion a healing process and response that is unique to the individual.
Homeopathy can be applied in Physical, Emotional, Mental and Behavioural issues and in combinations of these.
“ The highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of health, or removal and annihilation of disease in its whole extent, in the shortest, most reliable, and most harmless way, on easily comprehensible principles. ” Samuel Hahnemann, Founder of Homeopathy, Organon of Medicine, 1842
What Homeopathy is not
Homeopathy is not an “umbrella term” that describes a variety of different natural therapies.
Although the remedies used in Homeopathy may be made from natural substances also used in other modalities, Homeopathy should not be confused with Naturopathy, Herbal medicine, Chinese medicine, or other types of natural therapies. It is its own, unique therapeutic system.
The biggest difference is that Homeopathic remedies are very highly dilute medicinal substances. Because of these extremely small doses used, Homeopathic remedies are generally gentle in action, safe to use, without lasting side effects and non toxic.
Homeopathy is not a magic cure. Just as with other therapies; results depend on the skill of the practitioner as well as the situation, commitment and compliance of the individual patient.
The Homeopathic approach is very different from what we know of conventional medical approach and methods and there is still much we need to learn about the mechanisms underlying it.
It may be hard to explain how it works exactly, but it is certainly not Witchcraft, a Religion or a Sect.
You don’t have to believe in it for it to work (It does work on herd animals, babies and those unconscious).
