WHAT IS HOMOEOPATHY?

Homoeopathy is a complete system of medicine and is probably the best known and most widely accepted of the complementary therapies. Along with osteopathy, acupuncture, chiropractic and herbal medicine, it has been included as one of the five “Group One Therapies” (House of Lords’ Select Committee on Science and Technology 2000).

Homoeopathy uses a system of medical treatment that includes a wide range of natural remedies to stimulate the body to heal itself. It is based on sound, well researched philosophical principles that focus on stimulating the body’s own defense systems, thus enabling the body itself to start the healing process (Society of Homeopaths). Homoeopathy can be used along with conventional medicine.

The principles are founded on the work of Dr Samuel Hahnemann, a medical doctor from the 18th century. He discovered "that which can produce a set of symptoms in a healthy individual, can treat a sick individual who is manifesting a similar set of symptoms." This principle, like cures like, became the first of a new medicinal approach to which he gave the name “Homoeopathy”.

We give students the opportunity to build a firm foundation based on Hahnemann’s principles of homoeopathy. These principles include the following:

  • Vital Force· Susceptibility
  • Miasms
  • Minimum Dose
  • Direction of cure
  • Law of similars
  • Single remedy
  • Provings – Materia Medica
  • Succussion and Dilution
