Homoeopathy has been used for 200 years and has even been shown to be effective when orthodox medicine has failed. It works on the principle that if you give a certain substance to a healthy person they will show certain symptoms. If you give the same substance that has been diluted and shaken in a specific way i.e a homoeopathic remedy, to an ill person with the same symptoms it will cure those symptoms. The remedies are made from various substances such as plants, minerals and biological tissues. Homoeopathy is sometimes confused with Herbalism but here only plants are given in their natural undiluted state.
Homoeopathic remedies are prescribed individually and every aspect of the patient taken into account. It is just as important to understand what the patient is feeling about themselves and what their temperament is like as it is their physical problem. Homoeopathy is useful in many conditions that restrict our lives and those of our animals, conditions that may not even be serious but can make life difficult.
