What is Homeopathy?

calendulaHomeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing. Based on their specific symptoms, a homeopath will match the most appropriate medicine to each patient.

Treating Like with like

Homeopathy is based on the principle that you can treat ‘like with like’, that is, a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms. For example, drinking too much coffee can cause sleeplessness and agitation, so according to this principle, when made into a homeopathic medicine, it could be used to treat people with these symptoms. This concept is sometimes used in conventional medicine, for example, the stimulant Ritalin is used to treat patients with ADHD, or small doses of allergens such as pollen are sometimes used to de-sensitise allergic patients. However, one major difference with homeopathic medicines is that substances are used in ultra high dilutions, which makes them non-toxic.

Can Homeopathy Help You?

Are you looking for professional health care that is safe, effective and without side-effects?

Usually people come to homeopathy because they have failed to get the help they hoped for from conventional treatment.  Many people are worried about the potential side effects of medicines prescribed by their G.P.  A Homeopath looks at things differently, seeing symptoms as vital messages showing that something is wrong.  As such, when properly understood, symptoms can provide the key to the road to recovery.


Listed below are some of the more common conditions for which patients seek help from homeopaths: Patients turn to homeopathic treatment for many different reasons - often because conventional medicine has been unable to help them, or because they are unwilling to start taking medication that may produce unwelcome side-effects.

Homeopathy is an effective and scientific system of medicine, which assists your own natural healing process. Its holistic philosophy recognises that symptoms of ill health are a sign that something is out of balance, and that it is the patient who needs treatment to redress the ‘dis-ease’.

As a new patient, these ideas may be unfamiliar to you, but homeopathy has been established world-wide for over 200 years. Over 30million people in Europe use homeopathic medicines and the largest ever homeopathic hospital study showed significant improvement in 70% of 6,500 patients treated (Society of Homeopaths).
