In homeopathy, dis-ease is recognised as affecting the whole person’s body, mind and spirit. Symptoms are the body’s intelligent attempt at restoring balance (homeostasis). The aim of treatment is to stimulate and support the body’s healing mechanisms to help its symptoms complete their processes and restore health.
Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine, used widely around the world and was developed by Samuel Hahneman, a German physician, at the end of the 18th century. (Please see my blog to learn more about how homeopathy was developed).
An important principle in homeopathy is The Law of Similars (“Like Cures Like”) meaning that a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large amounts can be used in very small amounts to cure those same symptoms.
Homeopathy can safely be used alongside conventional treatment.
“IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHAT SORT OF A PERSON HAS A DISEASE THAN TO KNOW WHAT SORT OF DISEASE A PERSON HAS”
“As an 82 year old, I consider myself to be very fortunate to be, generally, as robust and healthy as I am, still able to do demanding physical work around the home, lifting and carrying twenty kilos without too much strain. Until recently. A few weeks, for no apparent reason that I was aware of, I became continually tired, needing to sleep many times every day. I was listless, despondent, withdrawn and irritable. Everything became an effort. All of this I explained to Cath. The treatment she prescribed was quite miraculous in that, within days, I was back to “normal”, so much so, that my wife was prepared to talk to me!”
