What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy acts on an energetic level and has a broad effect, shifting mental, emotional and physical symptoms.
The homeopath pays close attention to a persons symptom, which is the body’s attempt to restore itself to balance. Unlike conventional medicine which seeks to control and suppress these symptoms, the homeopath uses these symptoms to guide them to the correct homeopathic medicine to restore health naturally.
Homeopathy is used to assist people rather than to treat illness. Anyone, whatever the diagnosis, can benefit from homeopathic care.
Homeopathy helps by increasing the individual’s strength and resistance to disease and is effective in relieving many acute and chronic health complaints, some include: injuries, migraines, allergies, chronic pain, PMS, menopausal symptoms, hormonal health, infertility, psoriasis, eczema, asthma, infectious diseases, HIV/AIDS, depression, anxiety, IBS/Chrohns, rheumatism, sciatica, seizures, autism, ADHD, and many more.
Stimulate healing: Homeopathic treatment, like all truly natural therapies, seeks to stimulate the innate healing power of the individual so that all physiological systems function at their best.
Totality: The homeopath views a person’s health as a condition of the entire individual rather than in terms of isolated symptoms. Homeopaths do not diagnose disease or treat disease – we treat the individual.
Like cures like: Homeopathy is based on the “Law of Similars” which states that a substance that causes a particular set of symptoms in a healthy individual will cure the same symptoms in an ill person. Homeopaths use this principle in order to select the appropriate remedy for an individual.
Your visit to a Homeopath
Your homeopathic process is both simple and non-invasive. It begins with an initial consultation and continues with follow-up visits every few weeks to monitor your progress.
Essential to effective homeopathic care is the information that you provide to your practitioner. The information you provide is characteristic to you and your condition and you will want to describe your symptoms as fully as possible.
In addition, your homeopath needs to know a lot about you in general, and will want to discuss your mental/emotional nature.
The ultimate goal of a homeopathic consultation is for the homeopath to truly understand what is unique about you and your condition.
