What is Homoeopathy?

Homoeopathy is a  form of Natural Medicine that stimulates your own body’s healing energy to balance itself. This is a vibrational energy medicine.
The “energy medicine” is a branch of medical science based on the principle that disease can be cured by strengthening the body’s defence mechanism with substances selected for their energy-giving properties.

Homoeopathy derived from the words “homeo” and “pathos” meaning “similar suffering” a remedy is selected which, in its crude form, would produce in a healthy body the same symptoms found in a sick person suffering from the specific disease. This crude substance selected from animal, plant, mineral or chemicals, is diluted and purified beyond the point of harm to its quit essential state of energy. In contrast to allopathic medicine, by which symptoms are treated with toxic drugs that weaken the body. Homoeopathic medicine aims to change the body’s energy levels, which lie at the root of disease.

The ultimate approach to healing is to remove the abnormalities at the subtle-energy level, which led to the manifestation of illness in the first place. This is the difference in approach between the traditional medicine of today and the spiritual/holistic medicine of the future.


What can be treated?

Symptoms whether mental, emotional or physical are seen as an imbalance within the body. Chronic (long standing) problems or acute conditions with a rapid onset can be treated. Minor accidents can be treated with first aid remedies. Some examples of conditions that can be treated include, fever, fears, phobias, anxieties, headaches, behavioural problems, coughs and colds, bites, burns, skin conditions, constipation, bruising, swellings, ADHD, ear infections, tonsillitis, motion sickness, morning sickness, insomnia and the list is endless.


What will my Homoeopath need to know:

Your initial consultation can take up to two hours, however acute complaints may only take 30 minutes.

You are  a unique individual, therefore all symptoms of your illness are taken into consideration. Information relating to your current problem/s,  your present and past medical history also including  family/genetic  history will be collected.  Questions asked during case taking history will also  include, thermals, diet, sleep/dreams, lifestyle, emotional, physical and mental aspects.
