The human body is extraordinary. It has a phenomenal ability to show us when we’re out of balance by producing symptoms that make our life less than comfortable. The current ‘social norm’ is to go to a doctor when these symptoms appear in the hope that we can get rid of them and feel better again. Homeopathy offers us an alternative approach. It is the ‘vital force’ or life force within us that is producing these symptoms as an ‘alarm bell’ so we realise something within us is out of balance. The body produces disease when we are in a state of ‘dis-ease’ and as we take remedies to help resolve the problems and heal ourselves, we also have the opportunity to gain valuable insights and understanding about what has been going on on a deeper level.
Homeopathic remedies are a natural, safe form of medicine that work to stimulate the body’s own inner healing system, bringing us to a place of balance and health. When receiving homeopathic treatment, every part of you is important. It’s not just the physical symptom that needs to be looked at but how you are feeling, what is going on in your life, how you live your life. Remedies are then carefully selected to match the symptoms that you have come in with, it is always individual and everything you discuss with the homeopath will help to determine what remedy is needed.
The remedies then stimulate your ‘vital force’ and help to bring resolution to whatever it was that was out of balance. Homeopathy is very much about stimulating the body to use its intuitive wisdom to resolve anything that isn’t right. It is inherited patterns, past experiences and even ancestral influences that make us susceptible to illness. Homeopathy can be used to treat all of these, bringing us nearer to a truer and clearer pricture of who we really are.
Homeopathy can also be used to support us as we embark on our inner journey as well as for physical support. It can be as deep, versatile and practical as suits each individual. Whether it is hayfever, painful periods, depression or a desire to clear some ‘baggage’ – homeopathy has something to offer. As homeopathy treats the whole person it can be used in virtually any complaint.
