Homeopathy is a safe and effective system of medicine that uses a wide variety of substances in dilute doses to stimulate the body's natural ability to heal itself without any toxic side effects. Research in the field of quantum physics has demonstrated that repeated dilution and vigorous shaking imprints the characteristic energy pattern, or blueprint, of the original substance onto the water in which it is diluted. Remedies given in this dynamic form enable the body to regain the energy and ability to restore health.
"… the highest ideal of therapy is to restore health rapidly, gently, permanently;
to remove the whole disease in the shortest, surest, least harmful way,
according to clearly comprehensible principles."
Aphorism 2, The
Organon, Samuel Hahnemann
ORIGIN OF HOMEOPATHY
In 1796, a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, discovered a revolutionary approach to cure disease which he called “homeopathy”, from the Greek words meaning "similar suffering". Hahnemann discovered that any substance of plant, animal or mineral origin given to a healthy person in crude or repeated doses will cause that person to develop disease symptoms. He also found that any substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person, when given in diluted doses to someone who is unwell with similar symptoms can potentially cure them. This is known as the Principle of Similars.
Homeopathic tinctures are made by specialised pharmacies from substances including plants, animal products, minerals and elements, as well as some disease products. They are diluted so that any poisons become safe to ingest. A process of further dilution and vigorous shaking follows to create various potencies (strength of the remedy). Some potencies work mainly on the physical complaints, others also on the mental/emotional plane of the person.
Homeopathy's popularity is acknowledged by the world health organisation and it is used by millions of people worldwide in both acute and chronic health complaints. It has a proven track record for safety and clinical effectiveness.
