Why Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a gentle, holistic system of healing, suitable for everyone, young and old. It focuses on you as an individual, concentrating on addressing your specific physical and emotional symptoms, to give long-lasting benefits. Homeopathy can offer health care, which is both effective and extremely economical.

How Does It Work?

Homeopathy is a gentle natural therapeutic system that not only heals physical ailments, but also touches the soul. Hence it is based on affection for our patients, respect for the human condition, and compassion towards the foibles and weaknesses of humanity.

Homeopathy is a system of medical therapeutics based upon a fundamental law of nature known as The Law of Similars, a law that is unchangeable and constant, such as the law of gravity. This law enunciates that those symptoms that a substance can cause when administered to a healthy person, are the very symptoms, which that substance can heal when administered to a sick person. This law was coined by Hahnemann and accurately expressed in Latin “Similia Similibus Curentur” which translates ‘let like be cured by like’. The correct application of this law enables the physician to bring about a full recovery in curable conditions and to bring relief to those cases that are beyond cure. Hence, homeopathy is a system of therapeutics, which is not suppressive or palliative or a replacement therapyHomeopathy is a gentle deeply healing system. It works with the body’s own healing energy (Vital Force) to strengthen it and views symptoms of illness as normal responses of the body, as it attempts to regain health.

Homeopathy acts by restoring the patient’s constitution to a state of on-going vigour, health and balance, experienced both mentally and physically. It achieves this by utilising, stimulating and enhancing the body’s own curative, defensive and recuperative powers. The remedy that fulfils this criterion is the one that best matches or mirrors the patient’s mental, emotional and physical condition, best known as the homeopathic ‘simillimum’ – the remedy most ‘like’. 

Is Homeopathy Safe?

  • Safe, gentle and free from side effects. Homeopathy is the safest mode of alternative medicine and children deserve safe medicines. Nowadays a growing number of parents are concerned about the side effects of conventional drugs. In this scenario, homeopathy is a wonderful therapy option.

  • Increases immunity and body’s resistance, naturally. According to homeopathic principle, when a person suffers from any disease state his vital force (immunity) gets unbalanced. Homeopathic medicines act directly on vital the force making it stronger. Children have a delicate immune system, therefore, it is an excellent option to address childhood illnesses.

  • Complements other therapies in a noticeable way. Homeopathic remedies are manufactured in a special way, containing no chemical substances; therefore they can be used along with conventional drugs without the risk of chemical/drug interactions. An example is asthma where most of the times it is necessary the use inhalers and other indicated conventional drugs. While the conventional medication/chemical drugs will act on the physical level addressing physical symptoms, the homeopathic medicines are imponderable, dynamic in form, resolving the disease process at a causative level, while encouraging and stimulating the inherent capacity of the body to heal itself. Hence, they will be acting on the patient’s subtle energetic level. As the patient improves, conventional medicines can be tapered down gradually.
