What is homeopathy?

Updated: Aug 6, 2020

Homeopathy is a medical art and science which uses very tiny doses of natural substances to inspire the body/mind to heal.

As Homeopaths, we always strive to attend to “what is asking to be healed”, prescribing for the individual not the diagnosis.

The underlying principle in prescribing homeopathic medicines is “like cures like”. This principle was developed by the meticulous observations of Dr Samuel Hahnemann in the 1800s. He noticed that a substance that causes a symptom can, in tiny doses, cure those same symptoms by inspiring the body/mind to bring itself into balance.

Homeopathic medicines are known to be non-allergenic, non-toxic, and free of side effects and are even safe for the most sensitive people and animals.

Homeopathic remedies have never been tested on animals.
