Healing Through Homeopathy
The word homeopathy is derived from the Greek words homoios meaning ‘similar’ and pathos meaning ‘suffering’. Homeopaths treat the person with specially prepared, highly dilute preparations designed to stimulate a healing response and strengthen the body’s ability to heal itself.
We assess all of the person’s symptoms (physical, mental or emotional) and identify the remedy that is capable of producing in a healthy person symptoms most ‘like’ the symptoms the person is suffering from.
Homeopathy aims to treat the whole person, taking into account personality, lifestyle and hereditary factors as well as the history of the disease. Since all people are unique, homeopathic medicines are prescribed to treat individuals. For example, headaches are treated with different medicines according to the person’s individual symptoms.
Homeopathy is not a replacement for conventional medical treatment of serious diseases or infections, but aims to help alleviate the symptoms of a wide range of chronic and acute illnesses including:
- Hay fever
- Respiratory infections
