Homeopathy uses a holistic approach to maintain health and well being and is fast becoming the preferred method of treatment around the world. Homeopathy focuses on individualisation and because of this is considered a patient driven profession as it caters for every patients’ experience of illness on a mental, emotional and physical level. Homeopathy takes into account the diet, nutrition, environment and being of the patient. Homeopthic medicines stimulate the defence mechanisms of the body, that are needed to ward off the condition under treatment, and have the ability to stimulate the repair of any damage which the body has to heal. In this case the medicine does not fight the disease, but the body itself is stimulated to combat the condition, by restoring the balance and mechanisms involved in recovery and health. Homeopathic medicines support the action of the medicine, by stimulating the body’s own healing potential.
