Homeopathy is an effective and scientific system of healing which assists the natural tendency of the body to heal itself. It is a gentle yet effective form of treatment for many conditions, illnesses and diseases. It is a holistic form of medicine which means that in determining treatment the whole person is considered as well as the specific problem or illness. It respects the
body and recognises that all symptoms of disease are expressions of imbalance within the whole person.
Homeopathy understands the body has a natural balancing mechanism, which can be upset by various factors, including stress and inherited tendencies.
The medicines, or remedies, used in homeopathy are minute doses of natural substances, which have been taken from plants, animal, or minerals. They are safe and non-toxic due to high dilution. They can be used safely in conjunction with conventional medication. Homeopathic remedies stimulate the immune system and help the body heal itself, getting to the source of the illness rather than suppressing symptoms.
