Homeopathy in Littlehampton
Homeopathy is the second largest system of medicine in the world today, as recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO), and is used to help people manage all kinds of illnesses using natural medicines, looking at every person as an individual. The remedies prescribed to each individual aim to stimulate the bodies’ own natural healing ability and are always based on the individual’s presenting symptoms and level of health.
Homeopathy is a natural science originated in the late seventeenth century by German scientist Dr.Samuel Hahnemann. It is based on a principle called “ Similia Similibus Curentur” which means like cure like. It is a highly individualistic and holistic science taking into consideration the whole of you. Homeopathy medicines are natural in origin prepared from plant, mineral and animal. They have no side effects as are natural in origin.
The holistic nature of homeopathy means that body, mind and emotions are all considered in the treatment and prevention of disease. Profound changes in patient health, as well as life experience, are known to occur as no one part of the patient is looked at in isolation.
How does Homeopathy work?
Homeopatic medicine acts on the vital energy of the body; in a sick person this vital energy is low and it is manifested by certain signs and symptoms. These signs and symptoms are studied by the practitioner to prescribe the indicated ‘homeopathy remedy”. When a remedy is given to the patient in correct dosage and power, this natural substance acts to raise the vital energy of the body.
Most symptoms are as a result of the body trying to protect itself, the body knows what it is doing; the symptoms are its way of taking action to overcome illness. Homeopathy aims to use a small amount of what is perceived to be the underlying cause of the illness or symptom, helping to stimulate the body’s natural healing ability, allowing the body to heal in a natural way.
The administration of Homeopathic medicine gently exaggerates the presenting symptoms thus triggering the healing response. Conventional western medicines nearly always work to suppress symptoms, not addressing the underlying cause.
