Homeopathy a Holistic Approach
Homeopathy is a complementary therapy and uses a holistic approach. It is holistic because Homeopaths look at each individuals mind, body and emotions when they are in consultation.
Each session gives the Homeopath a good, overall picture of the client. During each session, the Homeopath then fits the remedy according to each individual set of symptoms.
Homeopathy and the principle of – like treats like
The concept of, like treats like is more well known as, like cures like.
This concept was greatly inspired by; the great Greek physician and Father of Medicine, Hippocrates.
“By similar things a disease is produced and through the application of the like is cured”. Hippocrates (460-377 BC), Father of Medicine.
Homeopaths treat clients according to their symptom picture. To understand each clients symptom picture, a Homeopath takes a detailed case of each person and matches the remedy according to the mental, emotional or physical symptoms that are apparent at the time in the consultation.
As an example, each remedy has an individual profile similar to that of each person.
The Homeopath then matches the remedy and person symptom profile and gives a homeopathic dose that encourages the holistic body systems to rebalance.
This is where the principle of, like treats like, originates. This system of complementary medicine was devised by; the German physician Dr Samuel Hahnemann. His original intention for creating Homeopathy was to find a more beneficial treatment to reduce harmful side effects.
Homeopathy aims to stimulate the natural body systems and to rebalance the mind, body and emotions. The remedies given by the Homeopath are specific to each person. The potencies can vary according to the pathology of each individual.
Through 200 years of practice and observation, the Homeopathic remedy kit has expanded to over 3000 usable remedies. It is estimated about 6million people in the UK use Homeopathy, and 100million in Europe. Of the 42 countries in Europe Homeopathy, is practised in 40.
People of all ages seek homeopathy for a myriad of reasons. There is no age limit with homeopathy. We see pregnant women or parents with newborns, the elderly, executives, even famous people and sports personalities use homeopathy. Paul McCartney, Usain Bolt, Jennifer Aniston, Cher, Kim Cattrall, Cindy Crawford, Hilary & Bill Clinton, David Beckham and Tina Turner are, to name a few.
