What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy quite simply is a gentle, yet highly effective system of medicine. It uses naturally occurring substances in the form of remedies to stimulate the body’s own healing power. The results, although gentle, can be powerful and long lasting. It is suitable for everyone, even sensitive patients, from pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence to adulthood right through to elder life.
It is no surprise that many people have heard of remedies such as Arnica or Chamomilla. Did you know that there are hundreds and thousands of homeopathic remedies used worldwide frequently to help treat an enormous number of health ailments and conditions?
What if I am already under medical treatment?
Homeopathy is certainly not a substitute for all other healthcare, however it can be safely used as the first treatment option in an unlimited range of conditions. It can also be used in a complementary way in other situations, for example, to support good recovery after childbirth, operations, injuries, emotional shock, grief etc.
Homeopathy is safe to use with conventional drugs and should be seen as a complementary treatment, not necessarily as an alternative. Many clients do find that my choosing to take Homeopathic remedies as a first choice , they may not need to pursue further medical treatment in the future.
Despite the differences in approach, homeopathic and conventional treatments can really give you the best of both worlds. Consulting a medical doctor who has an interest in homeopathy may give you peace of mind.
What are remedies made from?
Homeopathic medicines or “remedies” are generarlly made from plants and mineral substances that are highly diluted and then added to lactose tablets or pills. Your homeopath may also prescribe the remedy as daily drops if you are taking regular medication. They have a pleasant taste which make them particularily popular with children!
Homeopaths choose a remedy to carefully match the patient’s individual physical and mental symptoms and their emotional state. Remedies are approved by the Irish Medicines Board which regulates all medicines in this country. They are made by strictly regulated Homeopathic pharmacies.
