Homeopathy treats and improves the health of the body and mind to prevent the chances of developing sickness.
What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy’s roots emerge from the findings, teachings and writings of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). For over two hundred years Homeopathy has been practiced throughout the world. Originally from Europe, Homeopathy is also very popular in South America, Australasia, Russia, India and North America. Homeopathy is the most widely practiced form of alternative medicine in the world.
How does it work?
The HOMEOPATH will take a very detailed history from the patient in order to try and ascertain the complete symptom picture, to know your state of mind and exactly how the symptoms are present and what makes your symptoms better or worse. Having obtained a complete picture, the homeopath will then try to match your symptoms to a particular remedy. A prescription for a simple acute problem can sometimes be done over the phone or in a very short period of time.
Homeopathy for men
“Men tend to put off seeking any medical treatment until their condition can no longer be ignored.” Homeopathy treats you as a whole person. Symptoms such as lack of energy, insomnia, digestive problems, panic attacks, lung capacity problems, sexual dysfunction, skin conditions such as psoriasis, acne and eczema, herpes outbreaks and other STD symptoms, anxiety and depression, prostate pain and inflammation, back ache, lack of patience, addiction, and much more – all can be helped with homeopathy.

Homeopathy for Children
Homeopathic remedies are safe and very effective for children. As Homeopathic remedies strengthen the body’s resistance to illness, it is very wise to start Homeopathy as early as possible. Homeopathy is also effective in behavioural problems and temperament seen commonly in children such as:
- Fears and Phobias
- Nail biting
- Mental and Physical development issues.
Most children’s ailments like
- Chicken pox
can be addressed very effectively with homeopathic remedies without any side effects. Homeopathy can remove allergic tendencies to most food items.
Homeopathy vaccination is available for children at an early age.
Homeopathy for Allergies
Homeopathic medicine stimulates the body’s own defence system to cope with exposure to allergens, rather than suppressing symptoms. As in most homeopathic treatment, there are a number of treatment strategies that can be used to tackle allergies. Some offer simple symptom relief and must be repeated frequently, whilst other medicines aim to correct the underlying susceptibility to allergens.
Homoeopathic treatment of allergic rhinitis offers a better promise. Many such allergies can be treated permanently, though it may take one or two seasons before it is completely wiped out. Allium Cepa leads the homoeopathic table in treating this acute phase of allergic rhinitis. It is highly recommended for autumn allergy conditions with the following symptoms: frequent sneezing, constant dripping of watery discharge which may burn like fire and excoriate the upper lip and wings of the nose. All symptoms are worse indoors; better in open air. It is also very effective in treating morning attacks of sneezing that come during the months of autumn.
Homeopathy for Psychological Disorders
Homeopathy has given high emphasis on psychology and personality of the person to be treated of any physical disease or psychological complaint. It takes mind and body as a complete whole. Its treatment of psychological complaints is positive. Homeopathy not only relieves complaints but also makes the person more functional to become more adaptable and better equipped to handle the stress of life. Homeopathy understands and values minute feelings and also the physical impact of emotions.
Emotional states such as grief, fright, anguish, anger, indignation, guilt, remorse, disappointed love, homesickness and jealousy can be treated with homeopathy.
Homoeopathy can also very successfully treat negative states of mind such as depression, fear, anxiety, shock, panic attacks, phobias and anticipatory anxiety.
Homeopathy for Skin Diseases
Infections can be due to viruses, bacteria, fungi, or parasites. While measles, chicken pox, herpes, and warts are common examples of viral infections, impetigo, folliculitis and abscesses are bacterial infections. Fungal infections and infestation by lice are parasites; skin infections. Eczema and urticaria are allergic manifestations where psoriasis, lupus and vitiligo are auto-immune in nature. Physiological disturbances, such as hormonal changes, along with other contributory factors can lead to conditions like acne and seborrheic dermatitis.
Homeopathy recognises the body as a unified whole of physical as well as psychological components and confronts the problem deep within. Homeopathic medicines, unlike antibiotics, anti-fungal, anti-parasitics or anti-virus, do not target causative organisms. They boost the immune system of the body to fight and overpower them instead. For example, Morbillinum and Variolinum have been used to prevent measles and chicken pox respectively. Homeopathy does not advocate the use of external applications as they tend to suppress the disease only to return with a vengeance at a later time or to affect another more important organ or system manifesting in a completely different way.
- Cysts, Boils
- Hairfall and Dandruff
- Vitiligo/ White patches
- Eczema and Atopic dermatitis
- Allergic rashes/ Urticaria
Intake of Ready
Homeopathic medicines should be placed under the tongue of adults and children or in the cheek of an infant where they will dissolve. It is preferable that there should be nothing in the mouth to eat or drink 15 minutes before or after taking homeopathic medicines.
Some Homeopathic medicines may be antidoted by things like mint, caffeine or other remedies. In order to help prevent antidotes, take your remedies one at a time, with a “clean mouth”. It is not recommended to eat or drink 15 minutes before or after taking the remedies.
