Classical Homoeopathy is very different in approach from orthodox medicine. Normally a person goes to a doctor for a specific disease or a problem and is given a medicine to take that problem away, but the symptoms are there for a reason and if the reason still exists then the problem will return either in the same form or in a different disease or problem. The reason for this is that the core of the problem wasn’t dealt with. This is called suppression. Homoeopathy has a clear understanding of the difference between suppression and real healing. With healing, the root of the problem is dealt with first, and as a result the symptoms are no longer needed and fade away.
During a consultation the homoeopath looks at everything that is going on in the patients life, not just a few isolated symptoms. The same patient that comes in complaining of headaches may also have depression, insecurities, low energy and a long list of other problems. A single homoeopathic remedy, matching the whole picture is prescribed. This is known as Constitutional Prescribing.
People who have had homoeopathic treatment generally find that their overall state of health and wellbeing has improved. Holistic medicine, with its philosophies of health maintenance and disease treatment, is really the ordinary, common sense medicine which has been practised for centuries. It combines the knowledge of natural sciences and that old fashioned duo of experience and common sense. Natural law is based on the principles of nature which are permanent and irrefutable, and have remained unchanged since their discovery. It is only by making choices about all of these factors that we can enjoy health in its fullest extent.
