Homeopathy was founded by German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann over 200 years ago, and it is based on the Law of Similars or "Like Cures Like". This law understands that substances that cause healthy people to experience symptoms can also stimulate healing in people with these very same symptoms. Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine that generally uses substances from the plant, animal and mineral kingdoms to gently stimulate your body's innate ability to heal. These medicines are called remedies.
You see, your body wants to heal and come back to health and balance. And it knows exactly how to do so, it simply needs a gentle nudge. This is exactly what your remedy will do; it will initiate healing in you at the deepest level.
Homeopathic remedies can be taken by people of all ages and stages, as they are gentle, safe, effective and have no side effects. Homeopathy is recognized as the second most therapeutic form of medicine in the world today.
Homeopathy is for anyone suffering physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually. As a homeopath, I take into account your whole being when prescribing a remedy for you – not just why you are here to see me. If you have knee pain, for example, I make sure to understand that pain as well as who you are as a person. What brings you joy, what causes you stress, how do you experience that stress? What is your favourite season? How do you tolerate cold and hot weather? What do you dream about? How is your sleep? What foods do you crave and avoid? How is your digestion? You have knee pain, but do you also have headaches or skin issues? Homeopathic medicine is individualized medicine, and as such the remedy I prescribe will be for the whole of you.
