What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a very rigorous system of natural medicine; it appreciates that within each person there is an innate healing power that can help restore health – not simply alleviate or suppress symptoms. This healing power is visible every day when, without any outside help, our cuts heal and our colds disappear. Homeopathy powerfully stimulates this healing process to cure illness.

Two hundred years ago the brilliant German physician Samuel Hahnemann discovered homeopathy’s core truth: like cures like. Conducting extensive medical research, he learned that different natural substances given in large doses would make healthy people ill. He then proved that these same substances, specially prepared and given in small doses, would cure people who were ill with these very same symptoms.

The total picture of symptoms, especially those that are unique to and characteristic of the patient, are considered. A remedy is selected which best corresponds to that total picture. That remedy then works by augmenting the body’s inherent ability to heal itself.
