Homeopathy is a gentle, holistic system of healing and can be used for everybody: babies, pregnant women, sensitive patients and elderly people. Homeopathy can cure and prevent problems.
Homeopathic practise looks at the organism in the way that a human body is developing, functioning and is able to control diseases . The approach was called “vis medicatrix nature”, which means "nature’s healing power". Disease is a distraction of the ability to heal. In this case homeopathic medicine corrects loss of body strengths and helps to overcome the illness, not just reduce its symptoms.
Homeopathic medicine is made of a variety of plant, mineral and some chemical substances. They are produced by serial dilution and succussion (vigorous shaking) in a solution of alcohol or water.
Homeopathy can be used for most physical (hay fever, allergies, a number of skin conditions, asthma, earache, eczema) and emotional complaints such as grief, trauma, depression, anxiety, hyperactivity (for children). It can also help arthritis, obesity, menstrual and digestive disorders.
Homeopathy has no side effects, there is no danger of addiction or toxicity.
A bit of history: Homeopathy goes back to the fifth century BC, when Hippocrates the “father of medicine”, wrote that there were two methods of healing: by “contraries” and by “similars”. Paracelsus (15th Century), a German doctor believed in “like cures like”, or that the poison that causes a disease should become its cure. His observations on the law of similars were taken up only after two hundred years by Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), who became the founder of homeopathy. He discovered that Chinchona, which was well known in the 18 century for the treatment of malaria, given to a healthy person provokes symptoms similar to those of malaria. It gave him the idea that medicine that cures disease can give symptoms similar to those of the disease to healthy person. His principle of curing with similars-“like cured like” become the first law of a system of healing he called “homeopathy” from the Greek ” homeos”(similar), and “pathos”, meaning disease.
