What is homeopathy
Homeopathy is a natural form of medicine used to treat both acute and chronic conditions and used by over 200 million people worldwide. It is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’. In other words, a substance taken in small quantity will cure the same symptoms it causes if taken in large quantity.
Each person is treated and cured as a specific individual and their mind, body, emotions and spirit are all observed in the prevention and management of disease as per the holistic nature of homeopathy.
A homeopath will select the most suitable medicine based on the person’s specific symptoms and personal level of health to trigger their own healing ability, by taking all these factors into account.
