What is Homeopathy?

  • Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine -your mental, emotional and physical symptoms are treated as a whole and connected.
  • As a homeopath, I understand symptoms and disease to be an imbalance.  When an injury, illness, traumatic situation or stress impacts your health this can create an imbalance.
  • The aim of homeopathic treatment is to bring balance on all levels and relieve your symptoms naturally, safely and gently.

Homeopathy has three main principles:

  • “Totality of symptoms” –  I observe and consider all your symptoms on all levels – physical, mental and emotional, as disease indicates a disharmony of the whole person.
  • “Similar cures similar” –  Your characteristic symptoms will similarly match the symptoms of your prescribed homeopathic remedy, this in turn stimulates an innate healing response.
  • “Minimum dose” –  Homeopathic remedies are highly diluted leaving only a minute amount of the original substance.  I will only prescribe a minimal amount of a remedy and a single remedy at a time – just enough to produce a healing response to relieve your symptoms.
