What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is based on the principle of “like cures like”.

Homeopathy is a safe, effective and gentle medicine with a philosophy that trusts your body is the best conduit to heal itself and strengthens the vitality that we all possess.

Homeopathy treats the whole person and recognises that all symptoms are expressions of disharmony within the whole, and that it is the patient that needs treatment and not the disease.

With the application of quantum physics and the theory that water has memory; an electromagnetic field, which homeopaths call ‘The Vital Force’ keeps our body in equilibrium. When this equilibrium is disturbed, disease follows.

Homeopathy is gentle and safe to use along side conventional treatments.

Homeopathy is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’, where disharmony can be restored by a substance that is capable of causing similar symptoms, in a healthy person, to that of the disease.

For example, if you have had too many coffees one morning, you may experience restlessness, palpitations, a racing mind, and eventually sleeplessness if taken in the evening. Coffea, a homeopathic remedy made from the coffee bean, would be used to bring the body to vitality and help to calm these symptoms.

The Homeopathic approach to health, works in sharp contrast to conventional medicine. I often use a non-health related analogy to explain this. If the lightbulb of the headlights in your car starts to flicker, then go out, what do you do? You may first decide to change the bulb to ascertain if it wa s defective. If this doesn’t work, you don’t simply drive at night without it. That would be extremely dangerous! Instead, you start to dig deeper into where the problem might lie, perhaps delving into the wiring or connections. Similarly, homeopathy looks at why the body may be producing certain symptoms, and where the disequilibrium lies. It goes to the root of the problem and heals the underlying susceptibility of the problem.

The main principles of modern/conventional medicine is to remove or suppress symptoms the body is producing.

For example, when you suffer from heartburn or gastric reflux, you are often prescribed an antacid like Gaviscon. Over time, you are likely to need more of this medication to alleviate the symptoms your body is producing.

 Whereas, with homeopathy, we would be looking at why your body is producing these symptoms, and work to stimulate and energise your body to heal itself, so that you no longer have these symptoms entirely. Homeopathy is always working with your body to achieve homeostasis.

Fascinating, isn’t it?

As an Olympic Athlete, I have used homeopathy countless times to assist with the various bumps and bruises that I have suffered from hitting hurdles. My favourite homeopathic remedy is Arnica and I wouldn’t dream of using anything else. Homeopathy offers a range of natural remedies.

If you’re curious about homeopathy and would like to know more, I recommend checking out The Homeopathy Research Institute (HRI). This UK-based charity is dedicated to promoting high-quality clinical research in homeopathy at an international level. The charity was founded by physicist Dr. Alexander Tournier, who previously worked as an independent researcher for Cancer Research UK, conducting interdisciplinary research at the boundaries between mathematics, physics, and biology.
