What is Homeopathy?

Berkhamsted Homeopathy

Homeopathy is an effective and well proven form of medicine which has been used for over 200 years. It was founded in 1796 by a German physician and chemist, Dr Samuel Hahnemann who believed that the majority of disease processes in the body could be understood through symptoms.

It is a scientific system of medicine based on the ancient principle that a substance which could produce a set of symptoms in a healthy person, could also cure a similar set of symptoms when part of a disease.

Homeopaths recognise that all symptoms of ill health are expressions of an imbalance within each unique individual and homeopathic remedies work by stimulating and assisting the body’s own healing power.

Homeopathy is safe, effective and without side effects. The remedies are in high dilution which means they are non-toxic and non-addictive.
