Homeopathy is a system of complementary medicine in which ailments are treated by minute doses of natural substances that in larger amounts would produce symptoms of the ailment.
By giving the body a dose of something that it is already experiencing, we are matching the energy of the disturbance in the body to help relieve the symptoms, whereas the conventional medicinal approach is to suppress the fever back into the body, homeopathy works by stimulating the body’s natural tendency to heal itself, it acts as a catalyst.
Homeopathy adopts a “like treats like” approach to natural well-being. As a homeopath I am not so concerned with disease labels, but rather how your body expresses the symptoms of an illness. Remedies are matched to you, on an individual basis, taking into account your physical, mental and emotional situation.
Homeopathy is an energy medicine where there is no “one pill fits all” ethos.
Homeopathy can be used for acute and chronic conditions and is safe alongside conventional medicine. There are many different ways to practice and use homeopathy, acute prescribing can help for first aid use whereas chronic conditions can benefit from an in-depth case taking, and analysis to find a remedy that suits your individual needs at that time – this is called constitutional prescribing
