Homeopathy is a 200-year old system of medicine which is safe, gentle and effective, using dilute remedies to stimulate your body’s ability to heal itself. It was founded by the German physician and chemist; Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) and has been used ever since, becoming one of the most popular forms of complementary or alternative medicine in the world today.
Homeopathy is a "holistic" medicine which means that it aims to treat the person rather than only his or her symptoms. Homeopaths understand that symptoms of ill health are merely expressions of an imbalance or disharmony within the whole person. One has to bring the whole person back into a state of balance, and then the symptoms of disease (eczema, migraines, arthritis, anxiety or whatever) will go away.
Homeopathy has a wide scope of application and can be used to treat virtually any ailment in the young and old alike. People consult a homeopath for all sorts of reasons. Some use homeopathic treatment to deal with a specific medical problem, others may simply feel ‘out of sorts’. Whatever symptoms of ill health you are experiencing, homeopathy can be of benefit to you.
