'Similia Similbus Curantor' - like cures like
"The highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of health in the shortest, most reliable, and most harmless way."
Dr. Samuel Hahneman, founder of Homœpathy 1805
Homœpathy is an effective system of healing which assists the natural tendency of the body to heal itself. It recognises that all symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person: it is the patient who needs treatment not the disease. Homœpathy aims to stimulate the body's vitality and its immune system so that it can heal itself.
Examination includes a very detailed case taking and physical examination. This is all aimed at finding the root cause of your health problem or your state of disease, and to find a remedy that matches your symptoms and personality. It also takes account of you as a person - your individual characteristics i.e. physically, psychological as well as emotional.
The homœpathic remedy prescribed will match both your symptoms and your character.
It may be in tablet or liquid form and is made from plant, animal, mineral and any material that exists on earth. Our body contains all these elements and at certain state we may resonate the characteristics of these elements.
Homœpathic remedies are made by a process of dilution and succussion (shaking or vibrating) - this process known as Potentisation brings out the healing properties of the elements. It is said that the very substance that is harmful in its crude form may well be curative in the homœpathic form.
During (and after) homœpathic treatment you will be asked to refrain from drinking coffee and other stimulants that are likely to negate the remedy. Homœpathic remedies do not cause side effects and you do not become addicted to them.Hence they are safe for pregnant women, nursing mothers, children of any age and the elderly. Particularly those who are allergic to conventional medication will benefit from Homœpathic treatment. Persons undergoing surgery can also be helped in early recovery.
