What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy has been used in many countries for over two hundred years using the same remedies prepared under the same guidelines established by Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of Homeopathy. Homeopathic medicines help us to overcome disease by stimulating the body's natural healing abilities.
The aim of the Homeopathic approach to illness is to remove the cause of the disease at its source. As the remedies increase our vitality, we feel better - more like "our old selves". Homeopathic medicines are prepared from naturally occurring substances and are without side effects.
The Word 'Homeopathy' is formed from two Greek words and essentially means "like can cure like". As an example, a Homeopathic remedy prepared from onions is used for the well-known symptoms that onions can cause: stinging, watering eyes and sneezing. The process of preparing the plant into a Homeopathic remedy removes any toxic effects the crude substance might have.
Homeopathic remedies are prepared by a method of repeated stages of dilution that include vigorous shaking of a substance within a solution of water. In recent years, evidence is growing in the area of quantum physics that help to explain the idea behind the preparation of homeopathic remedies and how they work on the body (see Pubmed ). In addition, Dr. Luc Montagnier, the French virologist who won the Nobel Prize in 2013, supports Homeopathy. In an interview published in Science Magazine of December 24, 2013 Professor Montagnier said “The high dilutions used in Homeopathy are right. High dilutions of something are not nothing. They are water structures which mimic the original molecules." Read about the evidence for homeopathy at 4Homeopathy and the Homeopathy Research Institute.
How does homeopathy work?
Homeopathy differs from conventional medicine in that it aims to stimulate the body’s own powerful healing mechanism, addressing the underlying cause of your symptoms, rather than suppressing them. Homeopathy is rooted in the fundamental principle that like cures like.
Your body functions through an innate intelligence which keeps everything in balance – in spite of the stresses and strains of everyday life. We all take for granted the body’s natural healing ability – cuts and bruises heal, fractures mend, infections are dealt with – without our being aware of it. Sometimes, however, this natural ability is overwhelmed usually by daily life and stress.
Symptoms begin to appear as your body attempts to restore harmony, but cannot achieve it. Homeopathy recognises your symptoms as signals from within that all is not well, they are evidence of an imbalance in the whole person and your body’s way of communicating. The aim of a well-chosen Homeopathic remedy is to reverse that process of depletion and imbalance, setting the person (or animal) back on the road to recovery.
Homeopathic remedies are very safe and cost effective. When prescribed the correct remedy, often patients report being able to reduce or discontinue their conventional medicines. Homeopathy can help a range of ailments including rheumatism, allergies, vertigo, irritable bowel syndrome and many others.
What to expect during a homeopathy consultation?
In order to find the appropriate remedy for the patient, I will need to ask a series of questions to gather information about your state of health. A homeopathic consultation involves a lot of listening on our part to gather as much detail about your physical symptoms as well as how you are feeling in general. People are often amazed and grateful that someone takes the time to try and understand their ailments and it can be a very empowering experience.
The initial consultation can last from 1.5 to 2 hours in order to establish a complete picture of your pattern of health. Homeopathy considers the entire person and not just the single part that is showing symptoms. In addition to the current complaint, we gather information about your unique experience of life. Many patients gain a deeper understanding of themselves in the process that enables them to continue engaging in a process of self healing. At the end of the consultation, I will take a few days to select the remedy and then mail it to you along with instructions for dosage.
Given the nature of the homeopathic process, we recommend at least 3 visits. Follow up appointments tend to be shorter depending on how the patient is doing. Typically the follow up appointment is scheduled about 4-5 weeks after the initial consultation. However, if you have questions in between, you are always welcome to reach out to me directly.
