This brilliant system of medicine was introduced by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, at the end of the eighteenth century. Its simple yet profound principles are based on the body’s ability to heal itself.
Homeopathic medicine is safe and effective, and has been used by millions of people worldwide for over 200 years.
Homeopathy is quite different from conventional medicine in that it deals with the whole person rather than just a specific illness. A practitioner of homeopathy explores, in detail, the unique thoughts and experiences of each individual in order to uncover the basis and patterns of suffering.
By understanding the physical manifestations of the imbalance, coupled with the mental and emotional presentation, we are able to discern the deepest, multi-dimensional state of the client.
Symptoms provide a road map to understanding the underlying imbalance. Rather than considering a different medicine for each individual symptom, homeopaths work to understand the relationship between all symptoms and see them all as a part of the whole.
Thus, in order to understand a person’s seasonal allergies, we must also look into his sleep patterns, food cravings, moods, etc.
Homeopaths do not diagnose or treat diseases—rather, remedies are selected to correspond to the total state of the person, taking into account all signs and symptoms that individuate their suffering.
Homeopathic treatment has the potential to produce deep healing that includes improved vitality, harmony and higher levels of personal awareness. The beauty of homeopathy is that it is used to assist in wellness rather than to treat illness. Thus, anyone, regardless of diagnosis, can benefit from homeopathic care.
