What is homeopathy

Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine used by millions worldwide for over 200 years. It works by stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanism.


Homeopathy is based on the principle that ‘like cures like’. Substances that cause symptoms in a healthy person can be used to cure similar symptoms in a person who is ill. This idea was written about by Hippocrates and is used in other systems of medicine today, including conventional allergy treatments and medication commonly used to alleviate the symptoms of ADHD.

Homeopathic medicines are traditionally known as 'remedies'. They all come from natural sources and undergo a precise and lengthy process of dilution until only a very small amount of the original substance remains. This high dilution ensures that homeopathic remedies can be taken without any risk of side effects.


They are usually given in tablet form which dissolves on your tongue. You will need to avoid eating or drinking for fifteen minutes before and after taking the remedy.


Homeopathy can help treat acute and chronic conditions in both the young and old. It is safe for babies and pregnant women and can be used alongside conventional medicines. You should never stop any prescription drugs without prior consultation with your GP.
