Homeopathic treatments – to stimulate natural healing
Homeopathy is a system of medicine which aims to help the body heal itself by stimulating the body’s own natural healing processes. Homeopathy treats the whole person, the holistic approach to health care provision; homeopathy aspires to restore well-being and overall good health.
Treatments for diagnosed illness
Homeopathic treatment is only prescribed after the illness has been diagnosed. A diagnosis is made through conventional medical consultation, followed by a homeopathic consultation. The homeopathic medicine is taken while the problem is present; it is stopped when the symptoms settle.
Homeopathy is a complementary medicine which can be safely taken along with conventional medical treatment and medicine. Homeopathy is safe in all age groups and during pregnancy.
Homeopathy has been thoroughly researched by accepted scientific methodology. In excess of 200 studies confirm that its effect is not due to placebo effect.
