What is Homeopathy

What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a gentle, natural approach to healing that's been around for centuries.

Homeopathy works on the principle of "like cures like." This means that a substance that can cause symptoms in a healthy person can be used in a highly diluted form to treat the same symptoms in a sick person.

Drinking too much coffee, for example, and you get jittery, have insomnia, or may be irritable. Coffea, derived from coffee beans, will alleviate these kinds of symptoms (even when you don't drink coffee, but still suffer insomnia.

Chop onions, for example, and your eyes will likely experience streaming, watery, and stinging. Interestingly, the homeopathic remedy Allium cepa, derived from onions, has shown effectiveness in alleviating similar symptoms.


Your body has unbelievable self-healing properties. Give it the right tools, and it will do just amazing.

Homeopathy is one of those tools and it offers remedies in the form and shape of little pillules, pills, or drops, made from substances like plants, minerals, and others.

Homeopathic remedies work on an energetic level - a little like acupuncture without needles. First, the substance is diluted and then succussed (vigorously shaken). This process is done many times and what's left is the energetic imprint of a substance.

The higher the dilution and succussion - the more potent the remedy - potency is the number and the letter that is printed on a bottle of a remedy., e.g. Coffea 30c - this remedy has been diluted 30 times, each time with 100 drops of water and vigorously shaken 100 times.

None of the original substance remains, which is just as well, because many of them are highly poisonous - think of the popular tummy bug remedy Arsenicum Album, which is derived from white arsenic, or the brilliant remedy for hormonal disturbances - Lachesis - which is - you guessed it - derived from the poison of the Bushmaster snake.

Dilution and succussion also mean that the side effects of homeopathic remedies are nearly 0.

No side effects. That's right.

Homeopathy stimulates the body's healing properties, and in doing so, will not just remove symptoms, but restore balance - you might say, that it strengthens the immune system, and makes you more resilient, more balanced, and happier in yourself.

This does not just work for acute ailments (think common colds, cases of flu, tummy bugs, shocks, etc), but also for longstanding chronic issues (think asthma, eczema, depression, anxiety, and many more).

So, you see, it's a very individual approach to healing. That's why a first consultation can well take 90 minutes, because the only way I will find out how things are for you, is by asking lots of questions.
