A safer, gentle approach to health care
Homeopathy was developed over 200 years ago by chemist and doctor; Samuel Hahnemann. He was tired of the harsh medical procedures of his day, and wanted to create a safe, more gentle approach to health care.
Homeopathy is based on 3 main principles:
The similarity of symptoms a substance causes in a healthy person, vs the symptoms we are treating. Eg. The homeopathically prepared medicine made from coffee, can help treat restlessness and insomnia. The same symptoms some people get after one espresso too many! Like cures like is also found in conventional medicine. For example Ritalin, which is a stimulant, is used to treat hyperactivity.
In Homeopathy we use the smallest amount of medicine needed to stimulate a healing response from your body.
We treat you as a whole person, not just your symptoms. Everyone responds to a cough, backache, or depression differently. So you need an individual medicine for you.
With your participation, a thorough medical history will be taken, questions will be asked not only relating to your physical symptoms, but also some mental, emotional and environmental aspects. I support the involvement of other practitioners to assist in maintaining your well-being, help your recovery, or reduce side-effects of medications.
