Homeopathy promotes deep healing
Homeopathy addresses the root cause of the disease instead of focusing on symptom suppression and control. It understands that our body is intelligent, trying to defend itself and remain healthy at all times.
Think of a food poisoning – vomiting and diarrhoea is an intelligent, although unpleasant, response. The body is attempting to get rid of the toxins and pathogens. It is always trying to return to balance.
Sometimes the stress and negative influences get too much to handle though and we get stuck. Homeopaths view symptoms as the body’s way of communicating an imbalance. Symptoms are cues that guide the homeopath to the root cause of the disease. By addressing the core of the problem homeopathy seeks to heal, not supress your symptoms.
Mainstream medicine and how it works
Although conventional medicine is often successful in controlling the symptoms and providing immediate relief, the benefits are superficial and short-lived because nothing is done to strengthen the patient’s own defences. Their issues recur and often require higher doses of medication on a continuous basis. Next the medication is producing undesirable side-effects, for which another medication is prescribed, and vicious cycle goes on. People end up on a long list of medications and are getting sicker and sicker in the long run. Suppressing the symptoms is like switching off a warning light in your car that is signalling a low oil level. Switching off this light may make you feel better because it takes the pressure off, but it will mask the problem instead of fixing it, and ultimately will lead to an irreversible engine damage.
And what about homeopathy?
Homeopathy, on the other hand, honours the body’s wisdom and helps regain the balance and stimulate and support the person’s immune and defence system. The benefits of the treatment are sometimes slower to manifest compared to conventional suppression, but true healing is taking place on a deep level. People report feeling more energy, joy, peace and wellness, and achieve lasting relief of their symptoms.
Homeopathic treatment is always personalised
You are unique, and you experience your symptoms in a particular way, different from another person diagnosed with the same disease.
For example, one person allergic to pollen may have profuse acrid nasal discharge, while another may have extremely irritated, burning and itching eyes accompanied by bland nasal discharge. Their symptoms are triggered by the same irritant and their condition has the same label, but they react completely differently.
Homeopathy is person-centred and the treatment is tailored to your specific set of symptoms and circumstances. You are treated as a unique individual rather than according to a disease label.
Homeopathy is holistic treating the WHOLE you
Homeopathy treats the whole person rather than fragmenting us into body parts. Mental, emotional and physical symptoms are viewed together because within us everything is interconnected. Homeopathy is truly integrated, flexible and adaptable modern medicine.
