Homeopathy is a safe, natural and holistic system of medicine that has been used for over 200 years. It is based on a simple principle of healing called the Law of Similars, which states that a substance that can create symptoms in a healthy person is capable of treating those same symptoms when they arise in a sick person. This is what the word ‘homeopathy’ literally means – similar (homeo) suffering (pathy).
Homeopathic medicines are specially prepared, highly diluted medicinal substances that are drawn from plant, mineral or chemical sources. They are non-toxic, non-addictive, free from side effects and can be safely taken alongside conventional medicine.
When the correct homeopathic remedy is applied, the body’s own self healing mechanism is stimulated. Healing takes place from within, general wellbeing is boosted and the frequency and intensity of symptoms are reduced - the body has been stimulated to recover a previously held level of health.
