What is homeopathy?

HomoeopathyHomeopathy/Homoeopathy is a method of treatment which was developed by German physician Dr Samuel Hahnemann in the late Eighteenth Century and is used throughout the world.

Homeopathy is based on Greek philosophy that “ like cures like “ which means a substance which can produce symptoms of disease in a healthy person, can remove similar symptoms from the sick when given in homeopathic doses.

Homeopathy treats each person as unique individual with the aim of stimulating their own healing ability.

A Homeopath selects the most appropriate medicine based on the individual’s specific symptoms and personal level of health. There are thousands of commonly used remedies and each homeopathic remedy can be used to treat a specific set of symptoms.

Rather than giving the same medicine to each patient with the same diagnosis, homeopathic remedies are selected for each person based on the entire symptoms picture of an individual ( Tailor-Made treatment ), in addition to the diagnosis and pathology.

According to Homeopathy, disease is caused by disturbance in our vital energy or vital force. Vital energy is that dynamic energy that keeps us alive and maintains our organs and systems in a harmonious whole.

This vital energy can be deranged by external influences such as lifestyle, microbes, environmental exposure, as well as physical and mental trauma or stress.

Thus a disease originates from disturbance of this “ Vital Energy” that keep our whole body and mind in harmony or health.

As the origin of the disease occurs on a dynamic level it needs a dynamic or energetic remedy to get treated. Homeopathic medicine are energy medicine which are prepared by a process of Dynamization or potentization.
