What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy was formulated by Dr Samuel Hahnemann in the 18th century. He was looking for a system which would heal people rapidly, reliably and gently— with no negative side effects. Homeopathy spread quickly throughout Europe and the USA.
Homeopathy is an increasingly popular alternative system of healthcare. Many people are searching for an effective health care system, which is natural and safe. Homeopathy works in harmony with the innate healing power of the individual.
“I can’t manage without homeopathy. I never go anywhere without homeopathic remedies. I use them often’’. – Paul McCartney
A homeopathic remedy stimulates the body to heal itself, rather than directly targeting a symptom or condition—as is generally the case with conventional drugs. People with a similar complaint can exhibit different symptoms based on their individual constitutional type. They would therefore receive different homeopathic remedies. A homeopath will take the whole person into consideration when prescribing, rather than focusing on an isolated symptom or system.
Homeopathic remedies and how to take them
Homeopathic remedies are made from a variety of substances found in nature, such as minerals and plants. These substances are prepared by a highly controlled process of dilution and succussion. These processes render the remedies non-toxic yet highly effective.
Homeopathic remedies come in a variety of forms, including liquid potencies and tablets of various sizes. During your consultation Elisabeth will give you specific guidance on the best remedy type for you, and how and when to take it.
Is Homeopathy enough?
Anyone can benefit from homeopathic treatment, as it treats the individual rather than the complaint. Homeopathy can also work well alongside conventional approaches.
Good health is the result of a good lifestyle. This is comprised of many things, such as healthy eating and regular exercise etc. Homeopathic health care is one approach to a healthy life, other aspects also need due consideration.
