All About Me
What is Homeopathy
Homeopathy is a system of alternative therapy that use highly diluted forms of substances that trigger the body to heal itself.
Do all homeopaths work in the same way?
Homeopaths work in many different ways. Practical homeopaths are trained to look for the root causes to illness, what effect they have had in the body and to identify the obstacles to the body curing itself. In complex cases, there may be side effects of current medications, impacts of previous medication, trauma and illness and dietary and lifestyle factors all of which impact the body's ability to return to equilibrium. The patient may need herbal remedies to support the organs under stress, remedies to relieve symptoms and remedies to address the underlying causes. As the patient progresses, the treatment might reveal other layers that invite themselves to be healed.
Do homeopaths reject conventional medicine?
Modern homeopaths work alongside conventional medical practices and support their patients, whatever their current status of health or treatment.
Homeopathic remedies do not interfere with conventional medicine so can be used safely along side all other treatments.
Treatments that include the use of active ingredients including supplements and herbal remedies are recommended based on their compatibility with any concurrent treatment.
Does naturopathy replace the need for conventional Medicine?
No, if. you suspect you have a serious illness, always consult your doctor for a diagnosis and to discuss treatment options.
