What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a natural medicine prescribed individually. The carefully selected medicine will help to stimulate your own self healing mechanism. This means that the cause of the symptoms is addressed, not just the symptoms themselves so ideal for patients suffering from reoccurring infections or chronic illness.
Homeopathy has been used for over two hundred years and is currently the second most popular form of medicine in the world. In most countries throughout Europe and Asia, the Doctors are trained in homeopathy medicines alongside conventional medicine so the prescriptions are more widely available.
Where conventional medicine treats the symptoms, homeopathic medicine will help to address the cause of the symptoms and help the body to heal from the inside out.
When should I use homeopathy?
Homeopathy can be used to help relieve any health condition, of physical or emotional origin, and whether deep-rooted or an acute complaint. Because it is so safe and gentle, homeopathy is a popular medicine choice for babies, young children and during pregnancy as well as for the elderly and during palliative care.
For more persistent symptoms you should seek the advice of a qualified homeopath, who will be experienced in treating most conditions that you would go to the Doctor for. It is especially useful for finding the cause of chronic conditions when the symptoms continue to persist over a few months or years.
Examples of diagnosis may be migraines, IBS, anxiety, arthritis, low energy levels, asthma and eczema and well as recovery from medical procedures.
Homeopathy is also really useful for helping people recover from trauma, grief, anxiety and other emotional issues.
Can homeopathy be used with other medications?
Homeopathy is a complementary medicine which means it works alongside both conventional medication and other therapies, although you will need to let your homeopath know about the medications and treatments you are currently taking.
