HOLISTIC APPROACH — THE BIG PICTURE
Classical Homeopathy has a wide effect; it can bring changes in mental, emotional and physical symptoms. It helps by supporting the body’s ability to recover from and resistance to disease. As such it can be effective in addressing both chronic health complaints and sudden acute symptoms.
Since homeopathy treats the whole person – a collection of qualities and symptoms rather than a particular illness – anyone, regardless of their diagnosis, can generally benefit from homeopathic care.
Homeopathic treatment aims to stimulate the inner, natural healing ability of the individual so that body systems function at their best. Selection of a remedy is based on the total state of a person’s illness. As this inner health strengthens, symptoms improve.
HISTORY OF HOMEOPATHY
The principles of homeopathy were first formulated and utilized at the end of the eighteenth century by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician. He had given up the practice of medicine when he found the therapies of his time to be ineffective and harmful, and did not resume practice until he discovered in homeopathy a means to help people heal gently, rapidly and reliably. Homeopathy spread quickly throughout Europe and to the United States. Although the United States experienced a dwindling use of homeopathy in the early 20th century, it is once again on the rise. Today, homeopathy has a strong following in many countries including Canada, Australia, India, France, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Japan, Russia and England including the Royal Family.
