What is Homeopathy?

As a holistic medical approach, homeopathy considers how each person interacts with their environment, responds to disease and copes with life events in order to devise an individualised treatment plan aimed at restoring balance and establishing improved wellbeing. Homeopathy contributes to your health by helping you to manage it. As a result, the same disease in any group of people could be treated with different remedies. It can also be specifically aimed at conditions causing you concern, as would be the case for example with Hayfever and Upper respiratory tract infections

The vast majority of homeopathic remedies are made from substances found in nature. Prescriptions are chosen using a “like curing like” approach, by exploring not only a person’s symptoms, but also their predisposition and susceptibility to disease. In the case of allergies and hayfever it is also crucial to determine triggers.

It is used by some dentists, especially to make treatment such as tooth extraction a less painful experience. It has also been shown to be beneficial postoperatively following surgical procedures.

There is evidence that homeopathy can help coping with the side effects experienced with some prescribed medications and treatments such as chemo and radiotherapy.

It is an individualized medicine with treatment tailored specifically for you.
