Homeopathy is safe to take alongside medicine prescribed by your doctor and can work well in an integrated approach with conventional health in order to promote your well-being.
Homeopathy is based on the principle that you can treat ‘like with like’, that is, a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms. For example, drinking too much coffee can cause sleeplessness and agitation, so according to this principle, when made into a homeopathic medicine, it could be used to help people with insomnia.
For me homeopathy is about really listening to what your illness means to you and taking the time to match your dis-ease with a treatment that will help you regain balance in all aspects of your life, physically, mentally and emotionally. So the skill of the homeopath is being able to really listen to what is specific to you as an individual.
I like to say to patients that ‘homeopathy treats people, not an illness’.
Homeopathic remedies are very safe, non-addictive and have no dangerous side effects.
It is a holistic form of medicine which brings long lasting health benefits to the emotional, mental and physical aspects of people’s lives and it is widely used throughout the world.
Because it is a safe and gentle form of medicine it can be used by anyone – from babies, expectant mothers to the elderly, regardless of other medications prescribed.
