Homoeopathy was developed by Dr Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), based on the principle of ‘like cures like’. Homoeopathic remedies use highly diluted substances sourced commonly from plant, minerals or animal extracts. Hahnemann found that these remedies, if given to a healthy person would produce the symptoms that the remedy are being given to treat (like cures like).
Homoeopathy recognises that symptoms illness are expressions of disharmony within the person and that the person who needs treatment – not the disease. This system of medicine strengthens the natural tendency of the body to heal itself.
A range of individual characteristics such as lifestyle, emotions and physical conditions are taken into account during a homoeopathic consultation. Homoeopathic medicine may then be prescribed – these are usually in a convenient liquid or tablet form and have next to no taste. We have had success in managing a range of conditions including: skin conditions, grief, arthritis, depression, sprains, coughs and colds.
