What is Homeopathy and how can it help me?
Homeopathy is used by millions of people all over the planet. It is unique in that it will see you as a 'whole' person, not just the individual symptoms you may be experiencing. It aims to address the underlying cause of your issue, as this is key to you getting better, permanently.
It uses numerous remedies made from natural sources (plant, mineral etc), each one having a particular set of symptoms that it can help with.
Each remedy works on a 'like cures like' basis. To explain this simply, if someone were to eat a poisonous substance like Deadly Nightshade (aka Belladonna), the symptoms they would get, which would include a very high fever, could be helped by taking the same substance in Homeopathic form. In fact Belladonna is a major fever remedy that many Mums rely on to help their children!
So, the Homeopath will take a note of your symptoms and give you the remedies that match those symptoms.The remedies taken are given to help stimulate the body's own healing ability no matter how long the person has been unwell. To know more about what happens during a consultation, see the Typical session page.
