What Is Homeopathy?

 

Homeopathy is an art and a system of medicine which was developed over 200 years ago and continues to evolve to this day. It is simple, safe, and universal.

Homeopathy was started by a German physician named Samuel Hahnemann in the late 1700’s.

He drew on the principal of “like substances curing like substances".

Things which might cause symptoms in a healthy person are used to cure the same symptoms in a person who is ill.

SIMPLE
A person takes only one remedy at one time. There is no need for an array of pills, special diets, or diagnostic procedures.

ART
The art is in discovering which of the more than 7700 substances currently made into homeopathic remedies is needed by that person in that moment. The job of the homeopath is to match as closely as possible the energy of the person to one of these remedies.

SAFE
Most remedies are made from plant or mineral sources. They have been diluted and changed from their original form so that any toxicity has been removed.

UNIVERSAL
This makes homeopathic treatment perfectly safe for everyone, including pregnant women and newborn babies.

Furthermore, homeopathy sees people, not illnesses, so virtually every condition is treatable.

SPECIALISTS IN THE UNUSUAL
It is the ideal medicine for all complaints which as yet have no name in conventional medicine or for which there is no known cure. 

REMARKABLE IMPROVEMENT
I have seen remarkable results in patients who have been told there was no hope for them or that they would be on heavy painkillers or other medication for the rest of their lives.

I had the privilege of being interviewed twice on Vankleek Radio. The first interview is an introduction to me, and the second is about a series of lunch time talks I did on practical homeopathy.

Listen to both interviews below.
