Homeopathy is the second largest system of medicine in the world. Over 200 million people worldwide use it.
It is a holistic form of medicine where the medicines are prepared specifically in a variety of high dilutions. These medicines are then given in either tablet or liquid form. A homeopath will take a patient's case over a consultation period of 60-90 minute noting symptoms and their overall health. They will then go on and match a specific medicine appropriate to that person and their symptoms this acts as a stimulant to trigger the bodies own healing response.
Homeopathy uses the law of similar, ‘like cures like’. A substance in large doses that can cause a symptom can then go on in smaller doses to treat similar symptoms.
