What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a gentle, yet amazingly powerful natural therapy that has been used for over 200 years. It is a unique therapy that can uncover and resolve the causes of stress or disease in the body and bring about balance quickly and gently. It takes into account a person’s unique physical, emotional and mental state and because everybody is unique it uses these clues to find the causes to their problems.
Homeopathy is deep acting, long lasting and re-activates the body’s energy and vitality bringing back balance and health. A person is guided and supported to attain good health using these highly diluted substances. I welcome you to a unique approach to increase confidence and understanding of the body’s processes to attain great health.
How did it begin?
Homeopathy was developed by Samuel Hahnemann in Germany (1755-1843). Samuel Hahnemann was a medical doctor who felt their systems at the time a bit harsh (they used to do blood-letting etc, at this time and this was how President Washington died) and he instead turned to translating medical documents. Here he found an article about ‘cinchona bark’ (this was quinine and what they used to treat malaria at the time) and he wondered what would happen if he took this bark without having malaria himself. Well, he started to develop similar symptoms to malaria! When he stopped taking it, the symptoms disappeared. He experimented some more on himself, his family and his friends using different substances and each time he’d come to the conclusion that any substance given to a healthy person in repeated doses, will cause that person to develop similar symptoms of that disease. This is the foundation of the “Law of Similars” on which homeopathy is based and this principle of “like treats like” is the basis on which homeopathy was founded. It is a law of nature that had been recognised by Hippocrates and Paracelsus. Hahnemann was the first to test the principle systematically and establish a new system of “medicine”. After further experiments on many other substances, he found that administering diluted doses of these substances, alleviated the subjects’ symptoms.
Homeopathy has spread throughout the world and many more people are turning towards this safe, effective and natural method.
Many famous people such as Mahatma Ghandi, the Queen of England, Prince Charles, Paul McCartney, David Beckham, Usain Bolt, Cher, Cindy Crawford, Pamela Anderson, Tina Turner, Monica Bellucci, Jennifer Aniston and Cate Blanchett to name a few are said to use it and rave about how effective it is.
How does it work?
Homeopathy works with the natural laws of “like cures like”, for example, the remedy made from coffee will help with the effects of insomnia, trembling, palpitations and an over-active and busy mind, because that is what too much coffee will do to you. If you get a cold with burning, watery discharge from the nose and eyes, then the homeopathic remedy made from red onion is used because that is what an onion (when cut open) will do to you.
The homeopathic remedies are made from plants, minerals and many other different substances. When Hahnemann created his remedies he constantly experimented with them and came up with amazing results especially when he diluted the remedies and shook them up each time they were diluted. These stages of dilution and shaking up is called “potentising” and this process increases the power or as we call it the “potency” of the remedy. So basically, the more the solution is diluted and then shaken up, the more potent it becomes. There are pharmacies in New Zealand and all over the world that make Homeopathic Remedies.
Homeopathy is a truly holistic system as it recognises that all parts of the body, the emotions and the mind are all inter-dependent and therefore need to be taken into account together with all presenting symptoms in order to find a remedy.
Homeopathy aims to restore a person to better health and vitality. Symptoms of a disease in homeopathy are seen as the body’s way to balance itself, so symptoms are seen as positive and adaptive responses to different stresses in a person. Therefore homeopathy does not suppress symptoms, it stimulates the body’s defences or vitality to become healthy again. The final result is to eliminate symptoms of the disease and this improves health.
There is no testing on animals.
Are there any Side-Effects?
