What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine that uses remedies to stimulate the body’s own innate ability to heal itself. It offers superior results by treating the underlying causes of illness, not just the symptoms of the disease. Homeopathy uses remedies made from natural sources from the plant, animal and mineral kingdoms. Homeopathic remedies are safe, gentle and effective and can be used safely in conjunction with conventional medicine.
How does Homeopathy work?
As a holistic approach to health, homeopathy takes a wider view of illness and the causes of disease. It recognizes that symptoms are the body’s way of letting us know that things are out of balance and each person expresses this imbalance differently. Therefore it is necessary to treat the individual and not the disease.
Take for example, one person feeling pain in their joints may find the pain aggravated by damp conditions while another person may find that cold aggravates more. Because homeopathy treats people based on their individual response, people experiencing similar ailments will actually receive different remedies.
