What is Homeopathy?
What is it and how does it work?
Homeopathy is a holistic, gentle and effective system of natural medicine which uses specifically prepared medicines of highly diluted substances, called remedies, with the aim of stimulating the body’s own healing mechanism. It helps the person to do what the organism tried to do to get better anyway and does not just suppress or mask over any physical symptoms.
It is an individually tailored treatment for each patient, which is remarkably effective in improving, strengthening, supporting or restoring a person’s health, vitality and overall well-being from the inside out.
Homeopathy has been in use for over 200 years. It is the second most used form of medicine in the world according to the WHO and is used by over 200 million people worldwide to get over acute diseases and improve chronic conditions.
The word homeopathy itself means ‘like treats like’, which in other words means that a substance taken in small amounts will eradicate the same or similar symptoms it causes when taken in large amounts.
A simple example for this principle is the onion. Most people will react to the slicing and chopping of an onion with a runny nose and eyes as well as stinging and burning in the eyes and possibly sneezing. The homeopathic remedy alium cepa, which is the highly diluted version of the very same substance and therefore the small amount of it, will significantly improve colds or types of hay-fever which present similar symptoms as mentioned above of runny nose and eyes, etc.
Over the years a huge amount of research has been conducted to understand and explain how the micro diluted homeopathic remedies store the powerful information of the original substance that can then achieve such amazing results in the organisms of our patients.
Homeopathy has been seen to be beneficial to a huge variety of acute and chronic issues in all stages of life. For examples of conditions which showed significant improvement or relief after the use of homeopathy click here.
Why Choose Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a responsible choice for our own health and well-being as well as for our planet!
Five good reasons why homeopathy can be the medicine of the future:
Our remedies are made of natural substances, mainly coming from the mineral, plant or animal kingdom. Due to the high dilution of these substances, any toxicity which may have been present in the crude version of them, will be eliminated and the process of vigorously shaking (succussing) said dilutions, will enhance the positive effects of these substances and therefore increase its effectiveness on the organism.
2. This way of preparing our remedies makes them very sustainable. A minute dose goes a long way in preparation and usage.
3. With this sustainability comes the environmental friendliness.
No residues polluting rivers or other waters.
No wasting of water or using large amounts of space to grow vast amounts of one type of material.
No wasting of energy for production or destruction of forests or other nature reserves in sourcing our ingredients or disposal of substances.
4. Cost-effectiveness of the remedies due to the fact that a small amount goes a long way.
Thanks to the minute doses of substances, we need very little material to produce them and only a few pills are needed by the majority of patients to achieve improvement depending on the intensity and issue within each specific case. No expensive patents to protect difficult recipes and high cost of laboratory tests to evaluate the safety of the product, only minute doses of nature in diluted form in a bottle.
5. Due to the personalised aspect of the treatment the effect a remedy can have in most cases is gentle, effective and long- lasting. Homeopathic remedies are without side-effects, non-toxic and non-addictive.
Our big selection of remedies is safe for babies, children, pregnant and breast-feeding women and can be used alone or alongside other treatments and therapies without interfering with them.
Homeopathy can bring relief in its own special way by improving not only our health and well-being, but can also help reduce the use of antibiotics and other types of conventional, over-the- counter drugs like pain killers, sleeping tablets or fever-reducing medication to a minimum, so they become or stay effective when we might need them.
