About Homeopathy


A Natural System of Healing that has been in use for 250 years



Allium cepa

Homeopathy uses remedies - specially-prepared substances from the natural world - to stimulate the body’s own self-healing abilities.

Homeopathy means similar suffering and is based on the principle that like cures like - that is, what will cause a symptom in a healthy person, will cure that same symptom in a sick person.

For example:

Slicing an onion can cause symptoms of burning and watery eyes, as well as sneezing and a runny nose. Many hayfever sufferers with symptoms of burning, watery eyes, sneezing, and runny nose have found dramatic relief after taking homeopathic Allium cepa (the remedy made from red onion). Thus the substance that causes symptoms, can, as a remedy cure those symptoms. In other words, "like cures like".

Benefits of homeopathic care:

  • Homeopathy works in both acute and chronic ailments.
  • Homeopathy can be used safely and effectively alongside most conventional drugs and other therapies.
  • Homeopathy has no harmful side effects.
  • Homeopathy uses ‘remedies’ to stimulate the body’s own self-healing abilities; the  immune system becomes stronger as a result.
  • Rather than simply suppressing symptoms, Homeopathy restores balance and improves overall health, so that we are less susceptible to what ‘made' us sick before.
  • Homeopathy offers individualized care that supports the whole person.
  • Homeopathic medicines are tested only on healthy humans in order to determine the range of action of each remedy.
  • Homeopathic medicines are inexpensive when compared to over-the-counter and prescription drugs.
  • Homeopathy is the second most widely-used system of medicine in the world.
