A holistic way to improving your health.

About homeopathy

Homeopathy is a holisitic medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, its been used for over 200 years. The aim is to trigger the body’s natural system of healing. Based on your individual symptoms, a homeopath will find the most appropriate remedy for you.

 

Like with like

 

Homeopathy is based on the principle that you can treat ‘like with like’, this means, a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat similar symptoms.

 

For example. if you drink too much coffee you can experience sleeplessness and agitation.   Therefore, according to this principle, when coffee is made into a  homeopathic remedy, it can be used to treat these same symptoms.

 

This concept is sometimes used in conventional medicine, for example, the stimulant Ritalin is used to treat patients with ADHD, or small doses of allergens such as pollen are sometimes used to de-sensitise allergic patients.
