Homeopathy for first aid and common ailments.

With Sophia Russell RSHom

What is homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a system of natural health care that has been in worldwide use for over 200 years.  It treats each person as a unique individual with the aim of stimulating their own healing ability.  A homeopath selects the most appropriate medicine based on the individual’s specific symptoms and personal level of health.  It is based on the principle of “like cures like” – a substance taken in small amounts can cure the same symptoms it causes when taken in large amounts.

How can homeopathy help me?

Since homeopathy treats the whole person, it can be helpful in almost any situation where a person’s health is depleted. It can be very useful in the treatment of minor ailments, from cuts and bruises to coughs and colds.  It can also treat long-term problems.  I often see patients with long-term, chronic problems, many of which have failed to respond to conventional medicine, such as arthritis, asthma, migraine, chronic fatigue, depression, eczema and irritable bowel syndrome.  It can be used alongside conventional medicine.

The highest ideal of cure is the speedy, gentle and enduring restoration of health by the most trustworthy and least harmful way.

Samuel Hahnemann
