Can homeopathy help you?
Homeopathy has the potential to help many people with a wide range of conditions, both acute and chronic, because it treats the person rather than the named ‘disease’. Some of the conditions homeopaths see in the clinic include, recurrent infections such as colds and tonsillitis, skin conditions including eczema and psoriasis, menstrual irregularities, menopausal complaints, cystitis, anxiety and insomnia. The focus of homeopathic treatment however is on the whole person, and the individual way a person experiences their symptoms.
It is the fastest growing system of medicine in the world and is based on over 200 years of clinical experience. An estimated 100 million people in Europe, and 7.4 million in the UK use homeopathy. It is an integral part of the health service in countries from Switzerland to Mexico, to India to Brazil and South Africa, (Homeopathy International, N.D.).
Homeopathy is a system of medicine, based on treating the individual with highly diluted substances, which stimulate the body’s innate ability to heal. Because homeopathic medicines (often referred to as remedies) are non-toxic, there are no adverse side effects (F Dantas, 2000). This makes them safe for everyone to use, including pregnant women, babies, children and the elderly. In fact, the whole family can benefit from homeopathic treatment, including the family pet.
Many parents seek homeopathic treatment for their children because they are concerned about the over-use of antibiotics or the possible side effects of drugs.
Some like to use homeopathy alongside conventional medicine, or other complementary therapies, in an integrated approach to health and well-being.
Experience has taught me that there is no one route to health. We are all unique, so different approaches will suit different people.
