The Greek word homeopathy means similar suffering.
I need to match the symptom picture of your illness or injury to the symptom picture of the homeopathic remedy. This is called The Law of Similars in homeopathic philosophy.
Homeopathic remedies are clinically tested on healthy people in repeated doses over a specific period of time. These people will then produce a particular set of symptoms that is a “proving”. All the physical and emotional symptoms produced by each person are carefully notated.
These symptoms are collated into homeopathic repertories as paper or digital forms of reference. This process has been going on for many centuries. Now there are literally hundreds of “proven” remedies that I can access and use to my patients benefit. Proposed new remedies are undergoing this process right now.
Once I have found the remedy most similar to your symptoms this can stimulate your body’s own healing mechanism. This may reduce your symptoms whilst gently improving your health and wellbeing.
