Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine used globally for the treatment of acute and chronic disease, in both humans and animals. It is based on the law of similars, ‘like cures like’, and involves treating patients with diluted, potentised substances. Homeopathy does not interfere with conventional medicine and is very safe.
The homeopathic consultation is more detailed and so longer than a conventional consultation, with a first consultation taking about an hour. Choosing the right homeopathic remedy depends upon gathering all the information possible about the patient to find their individuality, and so find their remedy. This includes their current disease, history, emotions and personality. Like other forms of holistic medicine, homeopathy also takes into account external factors, such as diet and environment, to optimise overall health.
