Homeopathy is a main
form of treatment used at Tara Health Centre.
We have found homoeopathic remedies to be extremely beneficial in
treating a wide range of conditions. For this reason we
include homeopathic medicines in all our regular consultations and
also sell special
and isopathic complexes imported from overseas.
Sometimes called "The Royal
Medicine" because the British Royal Family has utilised homoeopathic
medicines since the 1830s, this treatment system is derived from both
natural medicine and orthodox science.
It brings together the best
of both worlds.
More about homoeopathy:
Homoeopathy is a
natural pharmaceutical science that utilises extremely small doses of
substances to stimulate a person's immune and defence system. Each
remedy is individually prescribed according to the "law of similars "
- that is, a substance which creates in overdose a specific set of
symptoms in a healthy person will cure these similar symptoms in a sick
person when given in very small doses.
homoeopathic remedies works so effectively because they work with
rather than against, the body's inherent immune system.
Mellifica - The
sting of a bee is used in homoeopathy to create a remedy to treat bites
and stings as well as generally for oedema of the skin and mucous membranes.
Passiflora Incarnata- Passion
Flower is used to make this remedy which is used to treat various
conditions including whooping-cough, insomnia, teething and spasms.
irritating symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, diarrhoea,
constipation, colds and coughs and allergies respond best to
homoeopathic remedies. Some chronic conditions, such as psoriasis and
eczema, stress-related, emotional and mental disorders have been helped
The science of
homeopathy was developed by German physician and chemist, Dr. Samuel
Hahnemann, in the early 1800's
experimented with the theory that "like cures like" and then determined that
the effects of the remedies he tested on himself were too toxic at the
conventional dosage level. He found that when a remedy is properly diluted,
healing is achieved without the severe side effects.
Homeopathy is very different in approach from most medical care systems.
Doctors generally give a medicine for a doctor for a specific disease or
problem to go away. But the symptoms are there for a reason, and if the
reason still exists then the problem will return, either in the same form or
as a different disease or problem.
It is common
experience that despite treatment, problems return again and again. At other
times problems seem to disappear after treatment, but not long afterwards
new problems come out to take their place. The reason for this is that the
core problem wasn't dealt with. This is called
suppression. Homeopathy has a clear understanding of the difference
between suppression and real cure. With cure, the root of the problem is
dealt with first, and as a result the symptoms are no longer needed and fade
In most cases
homeopaths look at everything that is going on in the patient's life, not
just a few symptoms in isolation. A list of apparently unrelated problems
such as headaches, depression, insecurities, low energy etc may stem from
the same root cause and by dealing with it, all of the problems will fade
After the correct
homeopathic remedy, most patients feel greater well-being and happiness.
Homeopathic care goes much deeper than most types of treatment. Changes in
life long problems, both physical and emotional are reported.
Use of Homeopathy is now
growing fast due to its high success rate in helping people, especially
those that cannot be helped by conventional medicine. Homeopathy is very
common and accepted in England, France, Switzerland, Germany, India and many
Homeopathy is often
extremely effective with people who have chronic diseases. This includes any
long-term physical or emotional problems, as well as illnesses which return
time and time again. Whether conventional medicine considers the condition
curable or not is not the major factor in determining whether homeopathy can
help. Homeopathy is also appropriate for those who have problems that bother
them, even though no disease has been diagnosed.
1. The homeopathic approach utilizes minute quantities of medicinal
substances to create therapeutic physiological changes through subtle-energy
2. In homeopathic
remedies, the energetic signature of the medicinal substance is transferred
to a solvent, such as water and sometimes then to a neutral pill of milk
sugar. It is the vibrational signature of the substance and not its
molecular properties which are utilized for healing benefits.
3. In homeopathy,
the more dilute a remedy's molecular concentration, the greater its potency.
This is opposite to conventional medicines in which there is a greater
potency with higher molecular concentrations.
4. Homeopathy is
based upon the Law of Similars, whereby a remedy is chosen for its ability
to reproduce the symptoms of the sick person in a normal healthy individual.
By matching the symptom complex of the patient with the known "drug picture"
of the remedy, a correct vibrational match between patient and remedy is
5. In homeopathy, a
remedy is chosen for its ability to stimulate and rebalance the physical
body through supplying a needed frequency of subtle energy. If the remedy's
frequency matches the patient's illness state, a resonant transfer of energy
will allow the patient's bioenergetic system to effectively assimilate the
needed energy, throw off the toxicity, and move to a new equilibrium point
Many respected people support homoeopathy
- don't take our word for it, take
Gandhi - "Homoeopathy
cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of
is the safest and more reliable approach to ailments and has withstood the
assaults of established medical practice for over 100 years."
Frederick Menninger, M.D., Founder of the Menninger Clinic - "Homoeopathy
is wholly capable of satisfying the therapeutic demands of this age better
than any other system or school of medicine."
Mark Twain - "The
introduction of homoeopathy forced the old school doctor to stir around
and learn something of a rational nature about his business. You may
honestly feel grateful that homoeopathy survived the attempts of the
allopaths (the orthodox physicians) to destroy it."
