What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a system for medicine which has a completely different approach to disease and remedies from that found in conventional or “allopathic” medicine. Homeopathy is practised both by lay people and qualified medical professionals: doctors, dentists, even veterinary surgeons use Homeopathy to varying degrees. Many thousands of people choose to use this approach for every-day family ailments.
In the more common allopathic approach, remedies are used that work against the disease and their symptoms - the “anti” drugs. The homoeopath, by contrast, views the symptoms as a direct manifestation of the body’s attempt to heal itself. Consequently a substance is given capable of producing similar symptoms if given to a well person.
Homeopathy does not treat diseases but, rather, individuals with specific symptom pictures.
Homeopathy is an approach to treatment: it is why a remedy is given, not what is given.
How does it work?
Homeopathy attempts to stimulate the body’s own natural healing capacity. Homeopathic remedies act as a trigger for the body’s own healing forces and remedies are prescribed on a very individual basis. The homoeopath takes note of physical, mental and emotional symptoms, together with full details of the “modalities” - modalities being all the factors that make the ill person feel better or worse. From the extensive picture the homoeopath then selects a remedy, which both matches the picture and, which would, if given to a well person, create the same symptom picture.
Special Note: The theory and philosophy of Homeopathy is far more complex than has been detailed here - however such knowledge is not essential in order to use Homeopathic medicines for every-day ailments. For more complex ailments please seek the advice of a Doctor who specialises in Homeopathy.
