The German physician and chemist Samuel Hahnemann (1755 - 1843) drew together the principles of Homeopathy. Homeopathy has been practised all over the world for the past 150 years and continues to flourish. There are five Homeopathic hospitals in the UK.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Your body has a natural ability to heal and repair itself. Think of a cut finger or common cold - over a period of time the cut is healed and cold symptoms lessen and finally go.
The practice of homeopathy views symptoms as the body's attempt to heal itself. Sometimes your body may need some help and the Homeopath's goal is to find the remedy which closely matches your symptoms. This remedy will stimulate the body's own resources, it does not aim merely to remove the symptoms, but treats the cause and thus health is restored.
The potential effects of each homeopathic remedy are well documented. The knowledge of how to use these remedies comes from three main sources:
- Clinical Experience
Provings is the term used when a substance is tested on healthy adult volunteers. Remedies are never tested on animals.
The Homeopath takes a careful and detailed case history, looking at the physical, mental and emotional aspects of each patient. You may be asked questions about all sorts of apparently minor deviations from health and about your character and personality traits.
Before prescribing, the Homeopath has a clear understanding of your state of health. Remedies are then prescribed for you as an individual, not only for your illness, but for your whole state.
You may get better in unexpected ways. Your body will put itself right in the most important areas first, not necessarily in the way you envisaged. A re-appearance of an old symptom would be welcomed by the homeopath as a sign that you are getting better. These symptoms will pass quickly and a higher level of health is achieved.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Every individual is different, occasionally ailments may be completely relieved after the first prescription, usually it takes longer - a few weeks or months.
