What is homoeopathy?

Homoeopathy is a form for holistic medicine. This means that it is the whole individual person who is treated – and not just the symptoms. Homoeopathy is a gentle, healing form of treatment, which helps the patient to regain its health by stimulating the body’s own healing forces. In order to do this, the homoeopath uses remedies that are mainly made of substances from the mineral, plant and animal kingdom.

The Classical Homoeopath understands symptoms as signs for a disturbance of the persons life force and in her view they show themselves where the organism does least harm to itself. Not the symptoms but the fundamental disturbance of the life force is the illness.

The homoeopathic remedy is supposed to stimulate the self-healing forces and not just to suppress the symptoms.

The classical homoeopath considers human beings as individuals, who react differently according to their fundamental nature and background. The total symptom picture is therefore a very individual and personal expression of an inner condition. The homoeopath tries to understand this condition and get an idea of the whole patient, physically as well as mentally and emotionally.

Homoeopathic remedies have been proved in groups of healthy persons. After they took a remedy, they developed specific symptoms that have been collected into remedy pictures.

It is the task of the homoeopath to find the remedy, which in its proving has produced the remedy picture that is the most similar to the total symptom picture of the individual patient.

Homoeo = the like, pathos = illness.
