Homeopathy

Homœopathy is a complete system of medicine based on the principle of “let likes cure likes”. Homœopathic treatment is believed to stimulate the body’s ability to fight infection and susceptibility to disease.

Homœopathy is recognised by the World Health Organisation as a valid form of healthcare. It may be used in the treatment of chronic illness, acute conditions and minor accidents requiring first aid.

Homœopathy aims to treat the whole person, taking into account personality, lifestyle and hereditary factors as well as the history of the disease. Since all patients are unique, homœopathic medicines are prescribed to treat patients as individuals. For example, headaches in different patients would each be treated with different medicines, according to the patient’s individual symptoms.

Homœopathy can be of benefit for all ages, at any stage including pregnant women, mothers, fathers, babies, young children, teenagers, and the elderly.

Homœopathy can treat the symptoms of a wide range of conditions including, for example:

  • Acute complaints – coughs, colds, earache, food poisoning, hangover, travel sickness etc.
  • Chronic complaints – skin conditions, hormone imbalances, depression, headaches, behavioural problems, digestive disturbances, asthma, arthritis etc.
  • First aid situations – bites, stings, hives, injuries, trauma, shock etc.
  • Vague symptoms - where there are no identifiable causes of disease, but the person feels far from well.


Treatment then involves the prescription of the most suitable medicine, matching all of the symptoms and individual characteristics of the patient to the medicine. Two people with the same condition may have very different prescriptions because of their own unique set of symptoms. Your practitioner might also advise general lifestyle and dietary changes as part of a treatment plan.
