For a natural holistic treatment option for chronic and acute illness

Homeopathy is a complete, holistic system of treatment for chronic and acute illness. Homeopathy is the second most widely used medicine in the world after western medicine. Homeopathy has been integrated into the national health care systems of many countries, including India, Mexico, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and the United Kingdom.

While no-one, as yet, has developed a definitive explanation for how homeopathy works, recent studies are making significant headway. From an evidence based perspective we do know that from a meta analyses of RCT’s homeopathy has consistently performed higher than placebo. Most practitioners believe homeopathy works by gently stimulating a person’s natural healing energy to resolve illness, fight infection and regain health. Stimulating the body’s natural healing system/defences is a great option for babies, children and pregnant women and people who are immune suppressed rather than manipulating it with harmful chemicals. Homeopathy treats the person and the illness.

Can you use homeopathy alongside conventional medicines?

What are homeopathic medicines?

Homeopathic medicines are made from a wide variety of sources including plant, animal, mineral and other sources. The most common method for developing a remedy for use is known as a proving. Provings are clinical trial homeopathic style. A proving is a double blind trial in so far as the person distributing the remedies and the person receiving the remedies do not know who has received active doses of the medicine and who has received placebo. Remedies are always tested on healthy individuals. As a result of taking the remedies, the testers reveal a set of symptoms which are carefully noted then rigorously collated, analysed, categorised and ultimately reported on.
