You can visit the Society of Homeopaths website to find out more about what Homeopathy is. The Society also publishes research evidence which you can access here.
The name homeopathy was created by its originator Samuel Hahnemann and is derived from the Greek words for ‘similar suffering’ referring to the ‘like cures like’ principle of healing. Homeopathy doesn’t separate the physical, emotional and mental symptoms, but takes the view that they are all interconnected. This is what makes homeopathy a truly holistic and refined art. The Homeopathic view is that disease originates in the energy body, called the Vital Force. Hence, the dis-ease needs to be treated with medicine that can change this vital force. This is the profound nature of Homeopathy in my view. I take great comfort that for what ails someone inside, outside in the world, there exists a substance to help which can be potentised into a homeopathic medicine.
Homeopathy is a well-regulated and safe form of medicine with little or no side effects and has been established and refined for over 200 years. Often people decide to try homeopathy when they feel they want to explore a natural and gentle alternative. For me personally, Homeopathy is an alternative and complementary system of medicine that is both an art and a science, treating the whole person as well as what ails them. Homeopathy works on a different ancient principle of medicine, called the Law of Similars and this is what makes it such an exciting medicine, facilitating real change in people’s lives.
