What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a complete system of complementary medicine which is gentle and effective and based on the treatment of the patient as an individual. It works by assisting the natural ability of the body to heal itself. Unlike conventional medicine there are no side effects and it is impossible to become addicted to the remedies. Because homeopathy treats the person rather than the symptoms, you could be suffering from, say, arthritis, IBS and migraines and, whereas orthodox medicine would see these as three separate problems and treat the symptoms of each with different medicines, homeopathy would treat you as a whole, with a single remedy, so that the whole of you gets better. With homeopathy, we always aim for a cure rather than just the relief of individual symptoms so that you are left without any reliance on treatment or medication whatsoever.
The remedies themselves are all natural substances which have been prepared in such a way that the energy from them stimulates the body's natural healing process. It gets us back on track when life has knocked us off balance.
Homeopaths see illhealth as an imbalance within, with the effects of the imbalance being shown on the ouside in the form of symptoms. The outside bits can only be properly put right if the imbalance is corrected first. If patients come back and say that they feel better in themselves, even if their physical symptoms haven't yet disappeared, I am confident that these will soon show improvement.
Homeopathic remedies come in the form of sweet pills which are dissolved in the mouth. They are absorbed into your system straight away and for some the effect is immediate, especially with acute problems.
Most homeopathic treatment is for chronic or on-going problems. However, homeopathy is brilliant for acute ailments such as Sprains and Strains, Chest Infections, Digestive Upsets, Menstrual Pain etc. etc. etc. and in these situations often a short telephone consultation is all that is needed. Where there is a chronic problem, however, a commitment to several face-to-face consultations is necessary. If you have a chronic problem, we must, between us, get to the root of the problem and find a cure.
