About Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a complete science based on the precept of Similia Similibus Curentur. “let likes, be treated by likes.”  As far back as 400B.C, Hippocrates and much later Paracelsus in the 16th century; had both used this principle in their treatments.  Paracelsus himself, declared  “what makes man ill, cures him.”  It wasn’t until 1796 that a German physician and chemist, named Samuel Hahnemann expanded on these ideas and developed what is known today as Homeopathy.

 As an example of this principle, I can use poison ivy, which causes, redness, intense itching, burning blistering and sometimes, stiff muscles when a healthy person comes in contact with it. Homeopathically it can then be used for conditions in the sick; such as herpes, burns, eczema or arthritis.


Homeopathic medicines work by  stimulating your bodies innate healing mechanisms, thus re-establishing balance and strengthening your immune system.  These imbalances can occur on a mental, physical or emotional level.  The remedies themselves come from the plant, mineral or animal kingdoms.  They are put through a unique process of dilution and potentization, which avoids the nasty side effects that some other medicines can have.   They are dispensed in liquid or dissolvable tablet form and are very easily given to children or the elderly.

Homeopathy has been used successfully, worldwide, in treating chronic, acute and first-aid conditions.  The World Health Organization (WHO) states it is the second most widely used medicine in the world. Here in Australia, the medicines themselves are prepared under the rigorous guidelines of the the Therapeutic Goods Act. (TGA).
