Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing. Based on their specific symptoms, a homeopath will match the most appropriate medicine to each patient.

Like with like

Homeopathy is based on the principle that you can treat ‘like with like’, that is, a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms. For example, drinking too much coffee can cause sleeplessness and agitation, so according to this principle, when made into a homeopathic medicine, it could be used to treat people with these symptoms. This concept is sometimes used in conventional medicine, for example, the stimulant Ritalin is used to treat patients with ADHD, or small doses of allergens such as pollen are sometimes used to de-sensitise allergic patients. However, one major difference with homeopathic medicines is that substances are used in ultra high dilutions, which makes them non-toxic.

Benefits of Homeopathy
  • Homeopathy is safe, gentle and effective
    Homeopathy works by stimulating the body’s own innate healing ability. Although gentle the results can be rapid, powerful and long lasting.
  • Homeopathy can be used by everyone
    Children, teenagers and adults – it can even be safely used by pregnant and nursing mothers, sensitive patients, babies and the elderly.
  • Remedies are non addictive with no harmful side-effects
    A special preparation process called potentisation refines the remedies to remove any toxic side effects.
  • Homeopathy can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine
    It is always advisable to let your GP know about any treatment.
