Homeopathic Treatment in Perth at Cambridge Health Centre

What is Homeopathy?

Listen to Marion explain homeopathy;

Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine developed about 200 years ago. Homeopathy is now used worldwide. It is based on the principle of ‘likes cures like’:

Cutting onion causes irritation in eyes, sneezing and watering. Diluted and homeopathically prepared onion juice (allium cepa) will alleviate the condition and settle symptoms of common cold or hay fever.

In Britain, for example, there are five homeopathic hospitals available under the National Health Service (NHS), including the London Homeopathic Hospital. The English Royal family has used it since Queen Victoria’s time in 1830, and it has wide acceptance throughout Europe. In France the most popular cold and flu remedy is a homeopathic medicine, and in India over 10,000 doctors use homeopathic medicines to treat their patients. Homeopathy may be used in the treatment of chronic illness, acute conditions and minor accidents requiring first aid. It is a complementary medicine and can work alongside conventional treatments and medications where applicable or required.

What Does a Visit to a Homeopath Involve?

The first consultation with a homeopath may take an hour or more, however simple acute complaints may only take 15-30 minutes. Information relating to current symptoms and past medical history will be required. Questions may also be asked about diet, sleep, lifestyle, and about some mental and emotional aspects. Treatment then involves the prescription of the most suitable medicine, matching all of the symptoms and individual characteristics of the patient to the medicine. Two people with the same condition may have very different prescriptions because of their own unique set of symptoms. Your practitioner might also advise general lifestyle and dietary changes as part of a treatment plan.

A single dose or repeated doses of medicine may be given. These small amounts of medicine are sufficient to stimulate the body’s healing process.

It is important to note that in general naturopaths are not homeopaths. If a person dispenses homeopathic medicines it does not necessarily mean that they are a fully qualified and registered homeopath.
