Homoeopathy is a system of medicine based on the principle ‘like cures like’; substances that can cause symptoms in a healthy person, can be used to treat similar symptoms in an unwell person. Minute doses of a substance are then given to a person to promote and speed the healing process.
Homoeopathics can be used to treat both acute and chronic conditions. Homoeopaths believe that chronic physical conditions can occur as a result of emotional trauma. When the appropriate remedy is given, patients can be left feeling relieved of both their physical and emotional symptoms and experience a sense of balanced wellbeing.
