Homeopathy is a clinical science discovered by Christian Frederick Samuel Hahnemann, a German Physician, in the late 1790's and 1800. Homeopathy today is a rapidly growing system and is practiced almost all over the world.
Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine that utilizes minute doses of carefully selected ingredients made from plants, mineral sources and many other natural substances, to enhance the body's natural healing processes. Its strength lies in its marked effectiveness as it takes a holistic approach towards the sick individual through promotion of inner balance at mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical levels.
Why choose Homeopathy?
Homeopathy recognizes the inseparability of body and mind. Homeopathy heals the patient as a whole and not just the disease.Homeopathy believes in a Holistic, Totalistic, and Individualistic approach. This makes Homeopathy the true and rational art of healing.Also, Homeopathy is safe to use when many other types of modalities may not be recommended, such as in case of newborns and during pregnancy.
How does Homeopathy Work?
Homeopathy works on the principle of "Similia Similibus Curenter" which means, "Let Like be cured by Likes", derived from the Natural Law of Nature. In this the remedy administered to the diseased individual is such that if given to a healthy person it produces a similar disease as found in the diseased individual. Thus when the pathogenesis of the remedy matches with the symptoms of the diseased person, this remedy is called the "Similimum" which helps restoration of health. Unlike any other system of medicine, the remedies used in Homeopathy have been previously proved on healthy human beings therefore their actions and reactions are fully known to the Homeopaths. This makes Homeopathy the true and rational art of healing.

Is there any advice about diet and lifestyle?
A normal diet and lifestyle does not need any changes, unless if it seems that this may be contributing to your illness. As we all know these days, a balanced diet is necessary for good health, with less sugars, fats, alcohol and refined foods. I may also suggest adjustments to your diet if in the course of the treatment it becomes apparent that you are inadvertently antidoting the action of your prescribed remedy, (some clients and remedies are particularly sensitive to coffee, peppermint, menthol etc).
The Homeopathic Interview
The Homeopathic interview is very in-depth and may take a considerable amount of time. This will involve a detailed case taking where you will be examined and listened to while you explain in as much detail as possible your present symptoms, thoughts and feelings, and the past history that has led you to this present health condition. After recording your case, the whole picture will be analyzedand a single remedy will be advised to you which best covers your expressed symptoms: mental, emotional and physical. This remedy will be recommended to you in an appropriate potency and frequency of repetition according to the assessment of your need. After a suitable interval you will be called for a follow-up to assess the effect of the remedy advised, and receive more Homeopathic care as and when appropriate. The number of appointments, remedy recommendation, will vary for each patient according to their condition and severity. A Homeopathic consultation can be the turning point that will lead to a restoration of Health and Vitality.
