Homeopathy is a system of medicine based on principles laid down over 200 years ago by a German physician, Samuel Hahnemann. By utilising the principle of 'Similars' or 'Like Cures Like' and using only the smallest doses of non toxic medicinal substances, the therapy is both safe and effective.
Homeopathic Treatment is directed at the whole person. A well selected homeopathic medicine can gently stimulate the natural healing forces of the body to bring about health.
Using the Law of Similars, homeopaths match the symptoms of the patient to the symptoms produced by a medicinal substance when given to a healthy person. The testing of a substance on healthy persons is known as a 'proving'.
The symptoms produced in provings form the content of our 'database', known in homeopathy as the 'Materia Medica'. It is the knowledge held within the Materia Medica that enables the homeopath to find the precise medicinal substance suited to the individual patient's needs, thereby bringing about an effective cure.
Minimum dose homeopathic medicines are largely derived from animal, plant and mineral sources. They are made using a method of serial dilution. The microdoses produced are called potentised medicines. The high dilutions produce extremely safe and effective medicines.
Homeopathy's effectiveness in a wide range of conditions is increasingly being verified by high quality clinical and laboratory trials (both human and animal), many of which have been published in respected journals in recent years eg, The Lancet, British Medical Journal, Pediatrics.
