Hope , Health and Happiness with Homoeopathy
What is Homoeopathy?
The Australian Homoeopathic Association rightfully describes Homoeopathy as a complete system of medicine.
Developed by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician and chemist (1755-1843), Homoeopathy is based on the principle of – Let Like Cure Like which is also called the Law of Similars.
Homoeopathy stimulates the body's inherent ability to heal itself and recognizes the fact that each individual is unique and should be treated as a whole.
An example of this principle is Allium Cepa a medicine prepared from the Red Onion. Chopping an onion usually produces stinging and watery eyes in a healthy person. These symptoms are very similar to those of Hay fever, for which this remedy is most often prescribed.
In the last few years studies have been published in various prestigious medical journals such as the Lancet, British Medical Journal, British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, International Journal of Immunology and Paediatrics, and Human and Experimental Toxicology. These studies have demonstrated the biological activity and therapeutic benefits of homeopathic medicines. Homœopathy is now used worldwide, with a 200 year history of clinical experience. It is recognised by the World Health Organisation as a valid form of healthcare.
Many famous people including the British Royal Family have great faith in Homoeopathy and routinely use it for various illnesses. Just to name a few, Catherine Zeta Jones, Jane Fonda, David Beckham, Pamela Anderson, Susan Blakely, Vidal Sasoon, Tony Blair and Martina Navratilova.
Why use Homoeopathics?
It is NATURAL - We are coming to a realisation that natural is best. Our outlooks are becoming broader and we understand that living with Nature makes us stronger and smarter.
It is HOLISTIC - We understand that it is necessary to look at every person as a 'whole'.Just treating the condition or the symtom is never the answer. True cure lies in seeing the complete picture and treating the individual. Physical and psychological features are both important. The treatment is tailored for an individual's specific symptoms and characteristics.
Homoeopathic medicines are SAFE - they are extremely dilute and highly energized. Hence they are virtually harmless and can be used at any stage in life - during pregnancy, when in labour, for the mother after delivery and when breast feeding and for the baby at birth and then at every stage of growth.
All Homoeopathic medicines are POTENTIZED, which means they undergo a phase of treatment that makes all of them extremely safe no mater what the source.
They are PALATABLE and children love them. Most Homoeopathic medicine is dispensed in the form of sweet sugar globules which are easy to take.
Homoeopathy is the SECOND MOST WIDELY USED system of medicine in the world and is recognized by the WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION.
It can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine if need be.
“No individual has done more good to the medical profession than Samuel Hahnemann”
-Sir William Ostler,(the father of Homeopathy)
