Homeopathy, medicine of the past, present and future.
Dr Samuel Hahnemann established homeopathy as a medical treatment over 200 years ago,
after becoming disillusioned with the harsh medical practices of his day.
His approach to illness has certainly stood the test of time and is now regarded by many as the
future of twenty-first-century medicine.
Unlike the mainstream model of a ‘one size fits all, a pill for every ill" medicine, homeopathy
recognises that we are all unique individuals. Often described as vital or energetic medicine,
homeopathy understands that our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects are interconnected
and that symptoms are expressions of disharmony within the whole.
It seeks therefore to treat the whole of the person experiencing the symptoms rather than the illness, condition or label alone.
Homeopathy respects the body's inherent ability to self heal. It looks to the underlying causes of a disorder and assists with
returning your true self to a sense of wholeness and homeostasis.
It is a complementary, dynamic, therepeutic, system of medicine, which is considered as both an art and a science.
New remedies and methods of prescribing continue to evolve, making homeopathy a truly vital medicine for the new and
evolving diseases in today's complex world.
Homeopathy has it's own philosophy. At its core is the guiding principle of the ‘law of similars’ or ‘like cures like."
Although Hahnemann first applied this central idea to his medicine, it has it's origin in the ancient past and has been recorded in folklore.
The Delphic Oracle (800 BC) proclaimed "that which make sick shall heal."
And Hippocrates (460-377 BC), regarded as the ‘father of medicine, stated that “by similar things a disease is produced and
through the application of the like is cured.”
Today we see examples of this "law" in conventional medicine. Ritalin, the stimulant amphetamine-based drug, originally promoted
as a "pep pill" in the 1960's is now routinely prescribed for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
While homeopathy is used to support a wide range of issues, its goal is your complete health – body, mind and spirit.
It is gentle, effective, non-toxic, non-addictive and safe to take alongside antiretrovirals and other medicines.
Suitable for the whole family, through all life’s milestones: pregnancy, birth, childhood, puberty, adulthood, the menopause and old age.
Proven to be beneficial for physical and psychological symptoms, resulting from trauma, chronic and short term illness,
acute first aid situations and invaluable when ill-defined ilnesses are not able to be diagnosed.
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
The World Health Organisation (1948)
“The greatest mistake physicians
make is that they attempt to cure the bodywithout attempting to cure the mind;
yet the mind and the body are one
and should not be treated separately".
Plato (427—347 BC)
“Those who merely study
and treat the effects of disease
are like those who imagine that
they can drive away the winter by brushing the snow from the door.
It is not the snow that causes winter,
but the winter that causes the snow". Paracelsus (1493-1541)
