What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a gentle and natural healing system that works with the body to relieve symptoms, restore vitality, and improve overall health. It is recognised by the South African government as a form of medicine.

Homeopathy can help strengthen the body to fight short-term illness such as colds, flu, earache, sore throats, and more, and for chronic conditions like asthma, depression, hormonal disease, digestive complaints  or arthritis.

Homeopathic remedies are environmentally friendly, cruelty free, and derived from natural sources.

How does Homeopathy work?

Homeopathy is a system of medicine developed in the 18th century by Dr Samuel Hahnemann, which approaches good health in a holistic way – taking account of the whole person and not just the symptoms or ‘disease’. The fundamental principle is that ‘like cures like’ – i.e. the Dr will select a homeopathic remedy made from a natural substance which would usually produce the very symptoms being shown, but in a tiny dose which has been ‘potentised’ to be effective. A simple example might be that a homeopathic dose of Allium cepa (made from onions) could help someone who has watering eyes and a streaming nose – exactly the symptoms we experience when we chop an onion.
