Homeopathy is a system of natural health care that has been in worldwide use for over 200 years. It is recognized by the World Health Organization as the second largest therapeutic system in use in the world. While it is most popular in India and South America, over thirty million people in Europe, and millions of others around the world, also benefit from its use.
The name homeopathy, coined by its originator, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, is derived from the Greek words for ‘similar suffering’ referring to the ‘like cures like’ principle of healing.
Homeopathy treats each person as a unique individual with the aim of stimulating a natural response toward wellness, or “at-ease-ness.” Homeopathy is founded on two basic principles…
Like Cures Like
The body knows what it is doing (even in dying) and symptoms are the body’s way of communicating illness or “dis-ease” in a very specific way. A homeopath uses that information to select a medicine that matches the unique symptom picture expressed by the patient.
The Minimum Dose
Minimum dose is based on the idea that the stimulus of a medicine works from upon the body’s vitality, so that only enough is administered to initiate the body’s own natural process.
Why is homeopathy so popular around the world?
Homeopathic treatment works with your body’s own powers to achieve resolution. You are treated as an individual, not as a collection of disease labels or symptoms. Homeopathy considers all of your symptoms at all levels of your being – the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical expression of your circumstances, and finds the ‘like cures like’ match for them.
Homeopathically prepared remedies, providing the minimum dose, are powerful and non-addictive.
