History of Homoeopathy
The word homoeopathy is derived from the Greek homoios, similar, and pathos, suffering. The motto Similia similibus curentur is Latin and means “Let like be treated with like”.

The founder of homoeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann, was born in Meissen in 1755 then lived in Leipzig 1789-1821 where he became a physician. He experimented with cinchona bark (quinine), which was used to fight fever, and discovered that cinchona bark taken by a healthy person produced similar symptoms to those of fever. He noted that Hippocrates and Paracelsus had mentioned substances that produced and cured the same symptoms. He gave friends remedies and asked for reactions – these were called “provings” – then tried the same in greater and greater successions and dilutions (potencies). These potencies were then used as cures. Using his potencies of remedies he had great success treating victims of cholera epidemics in 1812 and 1820.

Later in his life, Hahnemann was forced to leave Leipzig because of hostility from apothecaries. He moved to Kothen where he wrote the “Chronic Diseases” then to Paris where he continued to practice until his death in 1843.


Homeopathy is a system of therapeutics used throughout
the world for over 200 years to treat illness in body or mind,
using remedies derived from natural sources. Its use is
based on the 'Law of Similars', "let like be cured by like" -
i.e. that substances which in large doses can cause certain
symptoms, can in minute doses stimulate the body's natural
healing processes to cure them.

Disease is a disturbance of the vital force, (our energy blueprint which intelligently harmonizes the living self-healing powers within heart, mind and body) producing mental and physical symptoms which point to the nature of the dis-ease. By matching this symptom pattern through careful history taking with different homeopathic remedy pictures, we choose the most similar remedy, the 'Simillimum', to stimulate the vital force for healing.

Like finding the right key to a lock, the gentle healing art of homeopathic medicine can sometimes have a profound effect, releasing symptoms that have been held in place for a long time, and for which orthodox medicine may have no answers.

Homeopathic remedies have no side effects and are safe in all stages of life. They have been successfully used in babies, during pregnancy and right up to the end of life. They are increasingly being used in medicine, dentistry, podiatry, nursing, veterinary medicine and pharmacy.

A Brief Biography of Samuel Hahnemann
Hahnemann's House in Kothen from 1821-1835, and here he completed the Chronic Diseases. WHO CAN BENEFIT?

Many people are understandably reluctant about taking conventional drugs. In many situations, homeopathy can provide a safe and effective alternative to drugs. This applies to acute, recurrent and chronic illness. In any given situation a decision must be made to decide what type of treatment is in the best interest of the patient. In life-threatening conditions or where there iis any risk of irreversible damage, we make use of surgery or orthodox drugs immediately as there iis simply no alternative to orthodox scientific medicine.


However, Homeopathy does have a place in most conditions seen in general practice:-

1. First aid for minor injuries, cuts, grazes, bruises, sprains, insect bites.

2. Failure to thrive or to assimilate nutrition.

3. Disposition to recurrent attacks of acute illnesses (tonsillitis, otitis media, frequent colds and 'flu, glands, headaches, tummy aches, recurrent cystitis etc...)

4. Acute conditions which are not treatable by conventional medication or where the
patient or his/her parent would prefer if possible to avoid drugs (colic, teething, colds
and 'flu, gastroenteritis,)

5. Most chronic diseases Homeopathy has some part to play - if not curative then supportive, helping reduce medication, promoting ease and healing. (E.g. migraine, asthma, eczema, other skin conditions, arthritis, and many others. Also a feeling of 'never being well since' some incident or event.)

6. Behavioral/emotional problems such as shyness, tics, stammering, school
phobia, attention deficit disorders, hyperactivity, fears, anticipatory anxiety, nightmares, insomnia, sleep-walking, sibling rivalry/jealousy, shock, grief, pain, anger, depression and resentment.


The initial homeopathic consultation takes at least an hour due to the detailed nature of the information needed to make the most accurate prescription possible, based on 'like for like'. You may for example be asked about your general energy, bodily functions, quality of sleep, food desires, temperament and personality, along with your presenting complaint, and what makes it better or worse. A physical examination and sometimes, a relevant blood test, ECG or x-ray may be necessary to complete the picture. Once the homeopathic remedy has been prescribed, we will usually arrange a follow-up within a few weeks.
