What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a safe, effective, scientific system of healing, which assists the natural tendency of the body to heal itself? The word homeopathy comes from the Greek "homios" meaning similar and "pathos" meaning disease or suffering. The main principle of Homeopathy is the 'Law of similars'. This states "that which makes sick, shall heal". In other words, any substance capable of producing symptoms in a healthy person can cure those symptoms in a sick person - if given in the correct homeopathic dose.

By working in this way we stimulate the body's natural ability to heal itself as well as reducing susceptibility to ill health by creating greater resilience to the stresses of daily life. With Homeopathic remedies we are always looking to find the minimum dose that is necessary to facilitate this shift. Homeopathic remedies are energetic. They are made from plants, minerals, animal, disease products and other substances. These substances go through a process of serial dilution and succession - potentisation. This releases the inherent potential of the substance but contains no bio-active ingredients making Homeopathic remedies non-toxic and safe for babies and pregnant women.

Kinesthetic Resonance is also a helpful technique to identify sensitivities to different substances, eg foods, chemicals etc. Often by removing these stressors from the system and then treating the underlying susceptibility a person is better able to handle these substances in the future.
