Homeopathy

More and more people are now choosing a more natural and wholesome way of life, opting for organic foods, environmental friendly products and body and mind enhancing activities such as yoga and meditation. It is but natural that people should begin to consider more holistic forms of health care with fewer side effects.

Homeopathy is based on the principle that imbalances in one's life are responsible for ill health and if left untreated develop into chronic problems. The aim of homeopathy is to correct these imbalances by harnessing the body's own natural healing properties. This system of medicine is over 200 years old.

It is a deep-acting therapy with an individualistic approach. It considers an ailment has a disturbance of the whole person. Therefore homeopathy aims to treat the whole person rather than individual symptoms. A consultation with an homeopath includes a detailed case taking of the patient's physical, mental and emotional health.

Treatment is in the form of remedies that correspond with the patient’s symptoms. There are now more than 3000 complex homeopathic remedies in use throughout the world, most of them derived from natural sources such as plants and minerals, some from animal and human tissue or secretions. The remedies cannot cause side effects, and are safe enough to be taken by babies, children and adults alike.

A whole range of ailments are suitable for homeopathic treatment, including digestive disorders, hormonal disturbances, skin, allergies, depression, and babies, children and pregnancy related problems.
