What is Homoeopathy?
Homoeopathy is an effective and scientific system of healing which assists the
natural tendency of the body to heal itself. It recognises that all symptoms of ill
health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the
patient who needs treatment not the disease.
In 1796 a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, discovered a different approach
to the cure of the sick which he called homeopathy (from the Greek words meaning "similar suffering"). Like Hippocrates two thousand years earlier he realised that
there were two ways of treating ill health, the way of opposites and the way of
Similia similibus curentur - 'let likes be cured by likes'
Homoeopathy, a Greek word meaning 'similar suffering', is a rational holistic
scientific system of medicine based on the Law of Similars. It is a System of
Drug-Therapeutics, which states that a drug, capable of producing in a healthy
person a diseased-state exactly similar to that observed in a diseased person.
It acts as a curative agent if the disease is in a curable stage or as the best
palliative in the incurable stage. Homoeopathy has logically evolved as a science according to the method of inductive reasoning in which observation, correct interpretation, rational explanation and scientific construction play a leading role.
The successful application of the Law of Similars depends entirely on the
concepts of Individualization and Susceptible Constitutions that form the
cornerstone of Homoeopathic practice. The concept of Individualization takes
into consideration the total response of the organism to the unfavourable
environment. This total response is seen through Signs and Symptoms on
three planes: Emotional, Intellectual (Spiritual) and Physical where the life force
manifests itself. The concept of Susceptible Constitution takes into consideration
the hereditary influences and predispositions that play an important role in the genesis
How are the remedies made?
Homoeopathic remedies are derived from vegetable, mineral, animal and other sources that are used to treat a wide range of conditions, including acute infections and injuries, chronic diseases, and emotional disorders. Remedies are carefully selected, according to each individual case, to stimulate the body's own defense mechanism to heal body, mind and spirit in harmony, without toxic side effects. Homoeopathy is the second most widely used form of medicine in the world and after conventional medicine.
