Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions.

An individualised treatment based on holistic assessment

A homeopathic assessment takes account of the patient’s actual symptoms, and in addition considers the patient’s physical build, temperament and genetic predispositions. All such factors contribute to the entire picture. A basic principle of homeopathy is that substances capable of causing disorder in a healthy person are used as medicines to treat similar patterns of disorder experienced by ill people.

Homeopathy was first developed in Europe more than 200 years ago, by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843).
