What is homeopathy?

Homoeopathic remedies are made from highly-diluted naturally occurring substances such as plants, animals and minerals. They are prescribed to stimulate and strengthen the body’s own healing response or immune system. Remedies are safe to take with conventional medications, and can also be taken while pregnant or breastfeeding. Homoeopathic remedies have been reported to ease many of the common symptoms that affect adults, mothers, children and babies.

An example of a plant based remedy is Arnica which is commonly used to ease the trauma of bumps and bruises. An example of a mineral-based remedy is Nat-Mur made from common salt. Patients report it is effective in treating the symptoms of dry skin and skin sensitivities. Other remedies are made from the animal kingdom. Sepia is a commonly used remedy that reportedly helps with symptoms associated with menstruation.. As remedies are highly diluted there is no danger of side-effects, interference with conventional medications, or addiction.
