Understanding Health & Homeopathy
Your health is the only thing that is really yours. Money cannot buy health once it is lost, and so your health is worth the best investment that you can make. If you invest in your health by being aware of the food you eat, the exercise that you take, your state of mind, and the stress you are under, then you will feel a greater sense of inner peace, of control, a sense of well being and of your ‘vital energy’. Long term health very much depends on taking action to change habits that predispose us to disease.
Homeopathy is an excellent system of medicine, which can support you to make the inner changes necessary to achieve and maintain your health, not only on a physical level but on an emotional level as well.
Homeopathic treatment comes from an understanding that we are more then just our outer physical body, that we are an integrated energetic whole in which emotions and thoughts impact on the physical body by effecting the nervous system and the endocrine system. (Next time you feel really angry observe the effect it has on your body – tenseness, headache, tight chest?).
Once we grasp that health depends on an energy level that we cannot ‘see’ but that we can ‘feel’, we can begin to perceive health from a different perspective and take action to maintaining a healthy life style. From an energetic perspective, ill health and disease can be seen as coming from emotional disturbances such as deep sorrow, shocks & traumas, as well as from environmental factors. From this perspective it is not so much the force of the 'shock' that is important, but the strength of the individuals vital energy to overcome it. Homeopathic treatment is designed to support the vital energy in its efforts to keep the individual healthy.
Our practical homeopathic practitioners use a timeline as a tool when taking the client’s case . (A timeline is a history of the client’s life in sequential order of age, paying particular attention to mental/emotional traumas, physical, traumas and poisonings). Life has always been full of risks, accidents and emotional traumas like fear, anger, humiliation, loss, or rejection. Everyone has an individual response to these trials of life, and consequently will present different symptoms of stress at different levels of severity.
Homeopathy is a safe and gentile system of medicine which empowers the client’s vital energy to begin healing their physical body. Practical homeopaths look at simple ways to support clients to make the necessary changes towards health.
