What is Homoeopathy?
Homoeopathy is a safe and gentle system of medicine that has been used for over two hundred years and has benefitted many people with many different complaints.
Homoeopathy seeks to assist the body’s healing power and promote wellbeing. Homoeopaths do not regard physical, emotional or mental complaints as separate issues, but as part of a picture of the whole person. Homoeopathy can treat people of all ages and with a range of conditions.
It is well recognised that the body has the capability for self healing. In acute illnesses, such as a cold or chicken pox, the body naturally resists the infection and gets better by itself. However, some problems can be more difficult and homoeopaths aim to stimulate the body’s self healing powers in a focused way. The remedies used in homeopathy do not cause side effects and no chemical trace accumulates in the body’s tissues.
The Homoeopathic Consultation
Your first appointment will last approximately one and a half hours. Follow up appointments are usually monthly and last approximately three quarters of an hour.
In order to find the right remedy for your individual needs, you will be asked about your present symptoms along with a detailed medical history. You will be asked for details of medication, past and present, including vaccinations. You will also be asked about food cravings, sleep patterns and the medical history of your immediate family.
Everything you say will be treated in the strictest confidence and a remedy will be prescribed in tablet form, based on the information you give the practitioner.
Children and adults of all ages can be helped with a variety of problems. The homoeopath’s aim is to help patients achieve the sense of freedom that comes from knowing that their bodies are operating at the optimum level.
