Homeopathy is a powerful yet gentle scientific system of healing that safely and calmly restores the body to a natural state of health. The medicine acts by stimulating the body’s own healing response through its similarity to the imbalanced state in the body. The action of the remedies vitalises and strengthen the body, and supports convalescence after the depleting effects of imbalance.
Prescribing homoeopathically considers the persons behaviour and state of mind as much as the physical symptoms in the body. The slightest imbalance in the body, and the most subtle emotional and physical changes in your body all contribute to the disharmony that may be occurring. In a homeopathic consult, the finest detail of the individual experience assists in choosing the best remedy.
Since its conception in the 1800s, all remedies have been “proved” or tested on healthy people, who have taken a mild dose of the remedy for 6-8 weeks and recorded their physical and emotional reactions. Clinical experience with Homeopathy has shown that the remedy will be effective in restoring balance in people experiencing these same symptoms.
Homeopathic remedies are administered as small pellets or pilules, or by drops, which makes them easy to use, especially for children. Tissue Salts, or biochemical mineral salts, as well as Bach Flower Essences which focus on emotional balancing, are also homeopathic preparations, and may be included in a personalised prescription.
Homeopathy as a system of medicine continues to fascinate and amaze me, and I am committed to continuous research and study in this modality.
