WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY?
Homeopathy is a 200 year old, patient-centered approach to medicine based on the 'law of similars' and is used by over 300 million people around the world. Consider that the symptoms of a disease are not the disease but are instead the body's way of expressing that it has a problem, the symptoms are a result of the body trying to do something about it. Conventional medicine works by suppressing these symptoms however it does not get to the actual cause. A Homeopath understands that your symptoms are an indication of what your body's innate healing system is trying to do, prescribing a "like" substance that matches your 'state' gives your body the extra energy it needs to heal.
HOW DOES HOMEOPATHY WORK?
Homeopathy uses substances that have been highly diluted, to the point that no molecules of the original substance remain. How then does it work? The science behind it is still not fully understood however advances are being made in quantum physics and nano medicine which support the case that highly-diluted substances are something and not just nothing.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE-EFFECTS?
Homeopathic medicines are energetic and as such work on a completely different level to conventional medicines, which are chemical. They are non-toxic and do not cause any side-effects however symptoms may be experienced temporarily as part of the healing process. The reasons for these are primarily due to the 'rebalancing' effect that remedies facilitate - it is common to experience anything from cold or flu-like symptoms and on occasion fevers, as the body's immune system is activated. Your body will choose its most effective ways of eliminating toxins however these rarely last long and remember we are here to support you!
CAN I TAKE THESE REMEDIES ALONGSIDE MY NORMAL MEDICATION?
Yes - homeopathy is energetic and as such will not interfere with your medication. As healing takes place you will notice changes in your symptoms which may mean that you will need to speak to your doctor about making adjustments to your prescription.
