Homeopathic medicines are all derived from natural sources with medicinal properties that provoke a powerful healing reaction in the individual’s system. The power of the bodies healing mechanism is vast and many complaints heal themselves unaided; but when the healing process is faulty, blocked or slow, the homeopathic remedy acts as a stimulus to the curative powers of the body. The remedy however, must match the individual’sdisease state closely and therefore the homeopath must prescribe the correct remedy and the correct dosage for each patient. A well-chosen remedy acts as a catalyst for healing. Ultimately the patient can sustain health without the stimulus provided by the remedy.
A well chosen, individualized homeopathic medicine strengthens the vital system, encourages healing and lowers the susceptibility to future illness. Many health conditions can benefit from homeopathic care. It is particularly effective in the treatment of long-term chronic diseases. Homeopathy can play an important part in preventative medicine and the maintenance of health; reducing the incidence of acute conditions.
Since homeopathic remedies do not have any toxicity, homeopathy is safe for even the most sensitive patients such as pregnant women, infants and the elderly.
