What are Homeopathic Services?

Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine which has been in worldwide use for nearly two hundred years. The Royal Family has used it for generations. People suffering from all kinds of illnesses, from depression to arthritis. Migraine to ulcers, and now 'the more 'modern' illnesses including AIDS and ME can be helped by homeopathy to regain their health. Good homeopathy will not just drive away the symptoms but help the patient deal with the cause of the illness and regain good health.

Homeopathy is holistic medicine. The holistic approach to medicine takes a wider view of the causes of illness, and the ways in which people express their illness. Homeopaths do not treat physical, emotional and mental or even spiritual illnesses separately, but regard them as intimately connected, since they all are aspects of the patient's suffering. Before prescribing. the homeopath takes to have a complete overview of the patient. A remedy is then prescribed for that individual patient, not merely for his or her disease but for ‘the person's whole state. Homeopathic remedies are prescribed according to the ‘Law of Similars’. This means that the symptoms caused by an too much of a substance are the symptoms that can also be cured with a small dose of that substance.

Homeopathy is gentle and subtle. It is the body's energy which is influenced rather than its chemical balance, and the remedies do not cause side effects, as there is no chemical trace to accumulate in the body's tissues. For the same reasons it is not possible to take an overdose of homeopathic medicine in the same way as In orthodox medicine (orthodox medicine works on a chemical level)
