Homeopathy is a system of therapy that looks at the whole of the body, mind and spirit by using active ingredients in minute doses, along with naturally occuring substances in order to stimulate the body’s own defense and healing process. Homeopathy stimulates the body’s immune system, allowing the body to return to a balanced state.
Homeopaths see symptoms of illness as evidence of the body’s natural and automatic efforts to heal itself and use these clues to guide them when prescribing a homeopathic remedy.
The homeopathic doctor uses these symptom clues from all aspects of the patient’s make up to arrive at a clear understanding of the nature of the disorder. The patient’s likes, dislikes, symptom times of the day, emotional state are all considered important to the well trained homeopath.
Only then is a remedy then prescribed for that individual patient’s disorder.
