Homeopathy is a system of medicine which is based on over 200 years of development and research. Put simply, homeopathy is a way of treating illness which uses the body's own abilities to make itself well, based on the principle of "like cures like".
The aim of the homeopath is to treat the person and not the disease. It is not enough to simply suppress symptoms, if a person is to be healed the underlying cause of their disease must also be removed. Rather than treat each symptom in isolation the homeopath looks at the whole person and seeks to match this unique expression with a homeopathic remedy.
