What is Homoeopathy?

Homoeopathy is one the fastest growing and most trusted forms of natural medicine. The skilled practitioner can often achieve remarkably effective results for both acute and chronic illnesses. A form of subtle energy medicine, Homoeopathy, though it is based upon ancient principles, was brought to popularity by German physician and pharmacist Samuel Hahnemann in the late eighteenth century. Although Hahnemann was trained in conventional medicine, he became disillusioned by many of the barbaric surgical procedures and practices of the day, and by powerful medications that were used without any sound rational basis, and which had such appalling side effects.

Experimenting firstly upon himself, Hahnemann discovered that various natural substances, when consumed on a regular basis, produced symptoms of various illnesses, despite the person being free of the illness itself. The critical point however was that he discovered that the same substances, when administered, in very dilute amounts, to patients actually suffering from the illness, appeared in many cases to cure the illness. Hahnemann also discovered, quite bafflingly, that the more dilute the form of medication, the more effective it became.

It is fair to say that conventional medicine has embraced Homoeopathy as much as it has any other complementary therapy. Results of Homoeopathic remedies have been proven to be successful in over 130 "blind" scientific trials. Almost all illnesses can be treated.The UK has five NHS Homoeopathic hospitals in London, Glasgow, Bristol, Liverpool and Tunbridge Wells.
