It was some 200 years ago that a man called Samuel Hahnemann had a vision which led to the development of Homeopathy.
Homeopathy uses a principle of "like curing like". This principle is based on the observation that substances which cause symptoms in their crude form, can when much diluted, cure them.
Let me give you an example: Take Coffea (coffee), in its crude form it is a stimulant and can keep you awake, if you were to drink too much. Now homeopathy takes this crude form, dilutes it in liquid many times and also successes it (which is shaking the remedy vigorously), which produces the potentised remedy. This remedy will then be given to help with the effects of insomnia.
Simply put, the purpose of using Homeopathy is a gentle way of stimulating the body and mind to heal itself on all levels, and regain biological and psychological balance. It does this through the use of uniquely prepared remedies, prescribed to match the symptoms expressed by a person who is ill. In this way Homeopathy is radically different from mainstream medicine, with different understandings about the nature of health and illness, and a comprehensive set of principles and methods go with it.
The Advantages of Homeopathy
Effectiveness ~ Homeopathy has proved itself in treating every conceivable type of health care situation in tens of millions of clients.
Naturalness ~ Homeopathy does not use synthetic substances, but relies on the healing properties inherent in plants, minerals, and even animal sustances. These are used in their whole, natural state, not as isolated chemicals.
Safety ~ Homeopathy is safe, gentle and non toxic . There is no risk of poisoning, even if you accidently take too many remedies or the wrong one!There is no drug residue, addiction or build up of tolerance, even with long term use.
Non-invasiveness ~ Homeopathic remedies act as a catalysts, assisting all the body's natural processes, rather than interfering with subtle, natural functions. In this sense medicines are extremely gentle, respecting and preserving the intricate mechanisms of the biological systems.
Family based medicine ~ Homeopathy is ideal for children, the aged and in long-term treatment where there is very real concern about toxicity and side effects of short and long-term drug use.
Individuality ~ People have extremely wide variations from one another in their metabolism, biochemistry, reactions, and disease symptoms. In all these ways, homeopathy uses a remedy that exactly fits a person's needs, rather than routinely using the same medicine in all cases of a particular illness.
Acute Prevention ~ Remedies can be used to prevent the onset of conditions, including allergies, nausea, infectious diseases (like measles or colds). They can be used to prevent muscle overstrain, stage fright and antidote effects of late nights, overindulgence or overwork. You can have a homeopathic kit at home to also help with minor ailments (attending Wendy's first aid course would be ideal to understand how and when to use this kit).
Chronic Prevention ~ Professional treatment can eliminate many potential chronic diseases before they begin, or can halt their progress in the earliest stages.
