Homoeopathy is an effective system of healing which assists the natural tendency of the body to heal itself. It recognises that symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the patient who needs treatment not the disease.
Homoeopathy is based on the philosophy that the body, mind and emotions are not separate and distinct, but are fully integrated. Homoeopathy is based on the principle of the 'law of similars' or "like cures like". A homoeopath seeks a remedy that fits all of a patient's physical and psychological symptoms and therefore leads to an increase in the person's "vital force" or vitality.
. The Royal Family has used Homoeopathy since 1830 and in France the most popular cold and flu remedy is a homoeopathic remedy.
Homoeopathic medicines are made from a variety of sources, such as plants, animals and minerals. They are prepared by a method called 'potentisation' to precise standards in professional Homoeopathic pharmacies and are regulated by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). Potentised medicines are powerful and only small doses are required for highly effective results. Homeopathic remedies work by stimulating the body's own healing powers ‘the vital force’ to bring about health and wellbeing. They are completely natural, non-addictive and suitable for use in all stages of life, from the newborn to the elderly.
A Homoeopathic medicine is one, which is known to produce a well-defined set of symptoms if taken by a healthy person. This medicine is then used in the treatment of a patient presenting with that specific set of symptoms, by administering the same substance in a micro dose. The effect is displacement of the condition restoring constitutional balance and good health and a raising of the vital force.
