Homeopathy is a widely used system of medicine based on the principle of ‘let like cure like’. So, you know how dicing an onion makes your eyes sting & tear? Well using onion as a homeopathic remedy can treat hay fever, which shares similar symptoms. That’s the ‘like cures like’ principle & thousands of Australians visit a Homeopath to treat a wise range of conditions including:
Chronic illness (such as behavioural, menstrual, skin conditions, asthma, allergies)
Acute conditions (coughs, colds, flu)
Minor accidents (bites, stings, trauma/shock).
Visiting a Homeopath is by enlarge viewed as a safe, natural, holistic approach to alternative healthcare, which may improve your health at not only the physical, but also the emotional level. In fact, many Health Insurers cover homeopathic consultations & medicines.
So, what can you expect?
During initial consultation your Homeopath will take time to gain an in-depth understanding of your state of health. Homeopathy is like a landscape painting. The disease being treated is the main feature but it is the background which gives that feature its true significance. Next individualised homeopathic medicines are prescribed that focus on removing the root cause of the issue & establishing a balance between mind, body & spirit, and bringing stability to your health & increased vitality.

Homeopathy was discovered by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician who lived from 1755-1843. He came upon the principles of homeopathy in the writings of Hippocrates, Aristotle & Paracelsus & subsequently tested the theory with medicines like Peruvian bark (the natural source of quinine used for malaria), elements like sulphur, mercury & many more. Hahnemann beleived that natural substances can change the state of people’s health, just as diseases do. He felt that treating a disease with a substance that produces symptoms similar to that disease, will quickly & permanently cure that disease. Hahnemann then put into practice this “Law of Similars”, which he named Homeopathy,
Homeopathic remedies are dilute, yet very powerful medicines made from natural substances found in the animal, mineral & vegetable kingdoms. The remedies can be in liquid form or tiny sugar pellets taken under the tongue.
The basic principle of homeopathy is that a substance that triggers a certain disease can also be used to treat that disease. This is referred to as the “Law of Similars”. As well as this “like cures like” principle, homeopaths also believe that shaking & diluting the substance increases its potency – a process referred to as potentisation or succussion. Any plant, mineral or animal substance can be used to make a remedy. This form of alternative medicine was first developed and described by German physician Samuel Hahnemann in 1796.
Practitioners of homeopathy believe that this suppression of disease is what eventually leads to the internal organs becoming diseased. They maintain that all disease has an underlying chronic, deep-seated & inherited cause that cannot be effectively treated by opposing the symptoms. Homeopaths believe that the miasm would still remain & that the only way to correct a deep-seated illness is to eliminate the disturbance being caused by a vital force.
