Homoeopathic treatment stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself. As an holistic therapy it treats the whole person using an approach based on Hippocrates observation 2000 years ago that “like cures like”
Samuel Hahnemann the founder of homoeopathy, and medical doctor, developed this system of treatment 200 years ago.
Each patient is unique so treatment times will vary from person to person. In some cases a prescription can provide immediate relief or help to stimulate a shift towards improvement. Treatment times also depend on the length of time that a person has been suffering with a complaint. After the initial consultation, a follow-up consultation 4-6 weeks later is an opportunity to assess response to an initial prescription, and further treatment can be provided, if needed. For more chronic complaints monthly consultations may be necessary for several months.
Homoeopathic remedies, as a general rule, do not interfere with conventional medication. Never stop taking medications prescribed by your GP or other health provider, without discussing this with the prescriber first. Homoeopathy is a complementary system of medicine so can work alongside other forms of treatment.
