Homeopathy in Sydney
Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine which treats the person
as a unique individual. A homeopath will not look at physical, emotional,
mental or spiritual symptoms separately, but regard them as intimately
connected, since all are aspects of the whole person. A human being
is an integrated system maintained by an energy flow. Ill health
stems from a blockage in this energy flow, which will affect all
facets of a person.
The highest ideal of medicinal therapy is to restore health rapidly,
gently and permanently; to remove and destroy the whole disease
in the shortest, surest and least harmful way, according to clearly,
comprehensible principles. So it was that Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843),
the founder of present day homeopathy, defined his goals for a 'new'
system of medicine.
Homeopathic remedies work by gently stimulating this healing energy,
thus enhancing the persons natural, inborn drive towards balance
and well being.
Homeopathic remedies are prepared by a method known as potentization
whereby the energy latent in the medicine is liberated and increased.
The process imprints the characteristic energy pattern, or blueprint,
of the original substance into the remedy. There is abundant proof,
over the last 200 years, that the remedies are effective in treating
all manner of illness.
A homeopath will prescribe different remedies during different
stages of a health problem. For example an certain remedy may be
prescribed for an acute problem such as a cold, then a little later
a constitutional remedy might be prescribed to improve the overall
health and well being of the person.
Homeopathy and Illness?
Homeopathy can help to heal a person with serious health issues
as a compliment to orthodox medicine. For example, homeopathy may
help a person to improve sleep patterns and appetite, while reducing
anxiety and depression, without interfering with other medical treatment.
As homeopathic medicine helps to improve the well being of the whole
person, it may also assist to alleviate other health problems and
Homeopathy is effective for a vast array of physical and emotional
problems which may include:
- Childhood Anxiety and Depression
- Ear, Nose and Throat Problems
- Childhood Behavioural Problems
- Childhood Learning Difficulties
- Stress Management
- Post Natal Issues
- Stress Management for Parents
- Early Childhood problems
- Allergies, Hayfever and Sinusitis
- Digestive Problems
- Headache and Migraine
- Influenza and other Viral Illnesses
- Traumatic Injury
Homeopathy is also helpful during pregnancy, when many pharmaceuticals
are contraindicated, and for patients who are sensitive to, or who
refuse to take, conventional medications.
The Homeopathic Consultation
The first homeopathic consultation usually takes one hour to one
and a half hours. Subsequent consultations will last 30 to 40 minutes.
Consultations are confidential.
A homeopath will ask you questions about your past and present
health, life experiences, patterns of health in your family and
your personal characteristics. This will include looking at the
physical, mental and emotional aspects which make you a unique individual.
You may be given a single dose of a homeopathic remedy, or repeated
doses of a that remedy. Where an illness has developed over a long
period of time, several treatments may be necessary over a period
of months. Whereas in acute (short term) conditions, results may
be gained very quickly.
Recovery takes place in different ways depending on the nature
and history of your condition. Generally you will notice an increase
in energy and well being during your recovery.
