“Like treats like” is the basic principle of homeopathy. Homeopathy is a complete system of natural, evidence-based, medicine which works on the principle that ‘like cures like’. This means that a substance given in highly diluted form as a remedy can help treating the same symptoms it can cause when taken in large doses. A typical example is coffee: while in many people coffee can cause inability to sleep and an overloading of the nervous system, the highly diluted homeopathic remedy that is made from it can help people who suffer from a similar kind of insomnia.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that is over 200 years old and currently used by hundreds of millions of people worldwide. It works by stimulating the body’s self-healing with small doses of highly diluted substances – these are called remedies.
Homeopathy is the second largest system of medicine in the world today, as recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Remedies do not chemically override your system, but work with it to stimulate your own self-healing and encourage your organism to find a new, healthy balance.
Highly-diluted remedies mean no toxic effects, which makes this form of medicine ideal to be used at times like pregnancy and infancy as well as alongside conventional treatment.
Homeopathy does not treat conditions but the person: each remedy is selected strictly to match the whole of the patient’s symptoms.
Well-selected homeopathic remedies aim at improving the physical, emotional and mental health of the patient.
