Homeopathy is a method of treatment which was discovered by Samuel Hahnemann in Germany in the late 18th century. It is widely accepted and used throughout the world. Its effectiveness is beyond question and its positive results in patients have been observed. This method of treatment has been beneficial to many in the family and community.
Homeopathy is a holistic system of health care that focuses on the patient to provide enduring health and well being. It is believed that homeopathic remedies work with the body, acting as a catalyst to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
“Homeopathy” incorporates two Greek words ‘homoios’ and ‘pathos’. Homoios implies ‘like or similar’ and pathos means ‘suffering’. It means ‘treating like with like’ – an illness is treated with a ‘natural’ substance, which could produce similar symptoms in a healthy person.
Therefore, to restore health, a homeopath has to find a remedy that matches the patient’s symptoms.
Similia Similibus Curantur:
Individualization: As homeopathy is such an ‘individualized’ form of healthcare, no two patients with the same diagnosis and apparently similar symptoms will receive the same remedy. The treatment of one patient with apparently the same condition/diagnosis as another will more than likely be totally different. A truly unique and individualized form of healthcare!
Homeopathy is non invasive and safe.
It is a 3000 year old healing technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) . Acupuncture improves the body functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites–commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. The most common method used to stimulate acupoints is the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin.
TCM is based on the philosophy that the universe is made up of two opposing forces “Yin and Yang” which are inter-related, interdependent, change into one another e.g. Day and Night. Together they maintain the balance for a healthy life.
Energy or “Qi” flows throughout the body in specific pathways or meridians. This constant flow of energy keeps the yin and yang forces balanced. If this flow is obstructed it leads to pain, lack of function or illness. Acupuncture therapy releases this energy and stimulates normal functions for attaining health and well being.
