What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a treatment that uses remedies. Remedies can be made from virtually anything but are often plant or mineral based.
Over 200 million people in the world use homeopathy on a regular basis. In the UK there are 6 million users which is 10% of the population.
Homeopathy was originally developed by Samuel Hahnemann in Germany over two hundred years ago. There are two basic ‘principles’ or key points.
The principle of similar. This means that if something were used in large amount it would cause a number of symptoms. However, in a small amount this substance can be used to relieve those same symptoms.
The principle of ultra dilution. Hahnemann discovered that the substances he used could be diluted down to a level at which there is none of the original substance left in the remedy. If the dilution is then shaken in a particular way, it can be used to treat the underlying imbalance.
Homeopathy can be used alongside conventional treatment without causing any ill effects.
