The World Health Organisation recognises Homoeopathy as the second most widely used medicine in the world. Homoeopathy is a form of health care that treats people suffering from a wide range of conditions, both acute and chronic. It is a therapeutic system of medicine that aims to promote a self-healing response in the patient, by the administration of specially prepared medicines that are similar to their condition.
Homoeopathy follows legal and therapeutic guidelines for the preparation and the prescription of medicines to assist a patient self-heal. These medicines have been prepared in a specific way by a potentising process that involves serial dilution with intercurrent succussion (shaking hard). The potency and dose prescribed can vary, depending on each patient’s individual needs. The medicines are usually taken orally and can be provided in pilules, powders, tablets, sprays or drops.
