What is homeopathy?
Samuel Hahnemann developed the system that is now called homeopathy over 200 years ago. Homeopathy works on the principle that like cures like. An easy to understand example is that where chopping onions causes your eyes to water and your nose to run, the onion can be used homeopathically to treat colds and hayfever where the main symptoms include watery eyes and a runny nose.
Homeopathic medicines undergo a ‘proving’ process where volunteers take the new remedy until they start experiencing symptoms with the results recorded in detail in this way remedies when ‘proved’can be added to the homeopathic pharmacy. Homeopathic remedies are not tested on animals.
Homeopathy is non addictive, the medicines are non toxic and completely safe. Homeopathic medicines can be taken alongside your conventional treatment and can be in either liquid or pill form.
