Homeopathy is a gentle, holistic system of medicine which stimulates and supports the body’s natural healing ability. It was developed over 200 years ago by the German doctor Samuel Hahnemann but its roots reach back as far as the ancient teachings of Hippocrates and Paracelsus.
What are remedies?
Homeopathic remedies are selected based on your individual symptoms as we all express symptoms in a different way. To accurately prescribe a remedy(ies) homeopaths take a detailed picture of your life story including your current symptoms past health history, family medical history, current and previous medications, psychological and emotional factors, toxin exposure, exercise, stress levels and dietary habits.
A remedy is prescribed that, given in a material dose, would cause similar symptoms to those present in the individual. This substance is highly diluted and shaken in a carefully controlled way and when administered stimulates the body to correct the problem.
Is Homeopathy suitable for me?
