WELCOME TO THE HEALTHY PATH
Have you been diagnosed with a chronic disease? Are you constantly tired or stressed out, depressed, or sleepless? Do you suffer from chronic pain? Are you looking for a healthy alternative medicine choice for your children? Do you want safe, gentle and effective treatment?
If you answered yes to any of the above, or indeed if you have any other health issues – think homeopathy. From allergies to migraines, from skin problems to digestive issues to musculo-skeletal disorders, from 'female' problems to children's issues – homeopathy can help!
The founder of homeopathy over 200 years ago was a German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, who declared that the aim of homeopathy was a "rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of health".
What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a system of natural health care that is recognized by the World Health Organization as the second largest therapeutic system in use in the world. While it is most popular in India and South America, over thirty million people in Europe, and millions of others around the world, also benefit from its use. A little known fact is that the family doctor to England's Queen Elizabeth is a homeopathic physician. Mahatma Gandhi said, “Homeopathy cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment and is beyond doubt safer and more economical, and the most complete medical science".
How is homeopathy different?
Conventional medicine treats you organ by organ, disease by disease. You see a gastroenterologist for digestive problems, a nephrologist for kidney problems etc. In many chronic conditions, conventional allopathic medicine's prescription is a pill to be taken for the rest of your life, to treat a
particular organ or disease.
When you take this medication for several years, it inevitably has side-effects, for which another specialist prescribes
another pill. And so on...
In sharp contrast, homeopathy works not just on a disease or an organ, but on 'you' as a whole. It therefore restores health not just in a particular organ, but on many levels – mental, emotional and physical. Patients report increased energy, better moods, better sleep, and overall enhanced health, in addition to of course, improvements in the original health problem/s that they experienced. When I meet you, I spend over 2 hours at our first appointment getting to know you – your health problems being an integral part of the interview.
One of the most comprehensive homeopathic patient outcome surveys was an analysis of over 23,000 outpatient consultations at the Bristol Homeopathic Hospital in the UK from November 1997 to October 2003. This represented over 6,500 individual patients whose outcome was recorded at follow-up. More than 70% of these follow-up patients recorded clinical improvement following homeopathic treatment. Patients were treated for a variety of conditions such as Asthma, Chronic Fatigue syndrome, Eczema, Depression, Crohn's disease/Ulcerative colitis, Irritable bowel syndrome, Headaches/Migraines, Menopausal syndrome, and Arthritis.
