Homeopathy is a system of medicine that respects the fact that everyone is unique and individual, it treats the whole person and not just the disease or symptoms. Homeopathy uses natural medicines (remedies) to prevent and alleviate disease and symptoms by finding the route cause of the problem. For example a person with a recurring cough may take a cough suppressant and although this may stop the cough it does not cure the virus or emotional factor that causes it. In homeopathy the cause of this cough would be established, which leads to an ultimate alleviation of the symptom and not purely a masking of the persons symptoms.
Homeopathy bolsters the body’s natural healing system by encouraging symptoms and diseases to run their course in an accelerated manner. Homeopathy helps the body to fight the disease more effectively rather than just masking the symptoms. It works very deeply and can have lasting benefits on all levels both physically and emotionally.
