What is Homoeopathy?
Homoeopathy is a therapeutic medical system, based on the observation that substances that are capable of causing disease in healthy individuals may be used in a diluted form to treat a similar disorder in the ill.
Homoeopathy is a great modality to help patients cope with a variety of ailments, such as colds and flu, acute or chronic conditions, stress, mental and physical exhaustion and even lack of motivation.
Homeopathy focuses on the person, experiencing an ailment, instead of only looking at the ailment and forgetting about the person. For example, with stress we all experience and deal with this in so many different ways, while one person might continuously get sick, another might get aloof or frustrated while someone else may experience heart palpitations or lack of appetite.
There are so many benefits to using homoeopathy, one of which is that the remedies don’t do the work for your body, instead it teaches your body how to rebalance or return to health by itself, this is so important as this empowers the body to better deal with these ailments or stresses in the future.
During a consult, a thorough case will be taken of the presenting complaint, the vitals will be measured, such as blood pressure etc. and further diagnostic testing, if needed. After this, a remedy which best suits the patient and their individual needs will be prescribed. However, the treatment is not limited only to a homoeopathic remedy, a holistic approach is always taken to ensure the best outcome for patients this includes diet, supplements and or vitamin intramuscular injections or biopuncture (intradermal injections of homeopathic remedies).
