HOMEOPATHY IS EFFECTIVE, PRECISE,
SAFE AND LONG-LASTING.


HOMEOPATHY IS EFFECTIVE:
At the heart of homeopathy is the principle of “cure by similars.” Substances that can cause symptoms in a healthy person are used to cure similar symptoms in someone who is ill. Homeopathy was developed by a German physician named Samuel Hahnemann in the early 1800s.

Samuel Hahnemann The homeopathic method made its first pronounced impact during the cholera epidemic of 1832 when, by the accounts of all observers, homeopaths had far higher recovery rates than conventional medical doctors. Since the initial research of Dr. Hahnemann that led to the development of homeopathy as a comprehensive system of medicine, extensive clinical experience, observation and research continue to support its effectiveness.

HOMEOPATHY IS PRECISE:
A conventional doctor usually focuses on a limited range of symptoms. The homeopath observes and considers the patients physical, mental and emotional state; for disease reveals a disharmony of the whole person. The initial consultation may therefore take up to two hours. The homeopathic treatment is fine-tuned until the prescription matches the patient's idiosyncratic symptoms and constitutional make-up. There are no routine prescriptions in homeopathy.

For example, two children have asthma:
One child is a chubby, complacent, sensitive boy with a tendency to sweat a lot. His asthma attacks occur mostly in the fall and winter. Another boy with asthma is energetic, talkative and likes to pick fights. His asthma occurs mostly at night. These two children, though both with the same condition, need two different homeopathic remedies.

HOMEOPATHY IS SAFE:
In the hands of a well-trained homeopath, all homeopathic medicines are safe and without harmful side-effects. Classical homeopaths use a single remedy at any one time and wait a minimum of four to six weeks to re-prescribe.

HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT IS LONG-LASTING:
The aim of all homeopathic treatment is complete cure or lasting remission. Patients who receive homeopathic care usually experience enduring relief from their disorders and a higher level of health and well-being. Homeopathic treatments address the underlying conditions of disease symptoms, so that permanent ease and health are restored. The individual is able to enjoy life more fully. Homeopathy can also enhance palliative care.
