Homeopathy is a natural form of medicine used by over 200 million people worldwide to help relieve both acute and chronic conditions.
It is based on the principle of treating “like with like”. That is, a substance that causes symptoms when taken in large doses can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms.
For example, drinking too much coffee can cause sleeplessness and agitation.
According to this principle, when made into a Homeopathic medicine, this could be used to treat people with those symptoms.
However, Homeopathic medicines use minimum doses of the active substance, which results in the medicines being non-toxic.
Homeopathy a complementary treatment
Homeopathy should be seen as a complementary treatment rather than an alternative to conventional medicine.
Despite the differences in approach, Homeopathic and conventional treatments can work very well together and are frequently used as part of an integrative approach.
Consulting a medical doctor who is trained in Homeopathy allows patients more treatment choices.
