Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a sophisticated medical science which individualises a remedy based on the totality of a person's symptoms. A person's unique pattern of symptoms, his or her headache, stomachache, constipation, low energy in the morning and fear of heights are all interrelated. No matter what the individual symptoms are, they are recognized as primarily an intrinsic effort of the organism to adapt to and deal with various internal or external stresses.

It is Safe and Natural: by using minimal doses of natural medicine, there are no known toxic side effects in patients treated over the past 200 years. It is therefore suitable for everyone from infants to pregnant women, elderly and generally sensitive people.

It works by reinforcing the body's own defense mechanisms; therefore it is preventative as well as curative. By addressing the cause and not the effect it is highly effective for a very wide range of conditions, treating every day ailments as well as serious complaints.

Holistic: it treats the whole person with specific remedies looking after the psychological and emotional problems as well as physical ones. It considers the patient in relation to his or her environment, lifestyle and life history.

No significant interaction is known between homeopathic remedies and other forms of treatment. In fact, sometimes the combination is indicated to reduce the quantity of toxic drugs required.

It is non-addictive, and does not create dependencies, easy to take and pleasant to taste.

Safe for the environment – manufacturing doesn't hurt the environment.

What are Homeopathic Remedies?

Homeopathic remedies are primarily based on natural substances – common plants and seeds, common metals and their salts, and natural elements. All homeopathic remedies are dissolved into an alcoholic solution called the "mother tincture". Through a special process of diluting and sucussing repeatedly, the resulting solution is potentised, then spread onto lactose or sucrose pills.

How are the remedies taken?

Pills must be left to dissolve under the tongue and not swallowed, because the numerous tiny blood vessels under the tongue allow the active substance to rapidly enter the blood stream. The pill may also be dissolved in water and taken as a liquid. Homeopathic remedies are incompatible with mint, camphor, menthol, and strong smelling essential oils.

What is the reaction time?

The appropriate treatment taken at the onset of symptoms will reduce and shorten the effect of common illnesses such as flu in a couple of hours. However, for chronic conditions, the homeopathic practitioner must prescribed longer term treatment, taking into account the patient's constitution, so it may be a few weeks before results are noticeable.
