What is Homeopathy
Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine, aimed to promote general health as well as the treatment of chronic and acute illness. Homeopathy works by gently stimulating a persons natural healing energy to resolve the illness, fight infection and regain health.
Homeopathy works in a different way to orthodox or conventional medicine. The medicines that are prescribed work against the illness and its symptoms e.g. anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant or anti-biotic. In homeopathy, illnesses are cured by using small, specially prepared doses of substances prescribed on the basis of similarity of symptoms, stimulating and directing the body’s natural healing energy.
Homeopathy and Children
Homeopathy is a gentle, safe and effective system of health care which is well suited to children and adults alike. It does not have the side effects associated with conventional medicine, as only trace amounts of the active medicine are used in a specially prepared form. Homeopathy is not tested on animals. It is a highly effective system of medicine as has been consistently shown over the last 200 years and is suitable for the whole family.
In the last 200 years the clinical effectiveness of homeopathy has been clearly demonstrated and today homeopathy is used worldwide.

The Homeopathic Consultation
The homeopathic practitioner will examine many symptoms, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, in order to get a complete picture of the individual with the illness in order to prescribe the correct remedy. Often it is the symptoms that seem almost incidental and unusual that are the most valuable to the homeopath, for they give the person with the illness their own particular individual character and thus suggest the remedy.
For example, each person with asthma will receive a different remedy according to their individual characteristics. A chilly, restless and impatient person with asthma that is worse at night will receive a completely different remedy to a person who is sensitive to heat, tearful, mild and shy and has seasonal asthma. As the physical condition improves the persons emotional and mental state, for example, fears, anxieties, concentration, appetite, sleep etc. will improve
