In a society with today’s modern lifestyle, we are more or less forced to adapt to stress and external influences. This may in the long run lead to decreased levels of health. Many will seek help from traditional medicine through ingesting synthetic medicines foreign to the human body.
Medical help is necessary in serious cases of ill health. But in order to limit the body’s exposure to damaging and unnecessary side effects, we should become more aware of using natural remedies when treating ailments.
Homeopathy is a natural form of medicine which has become increasingly more popular over the recent years. Homeopathy is impressingly the second most used health system on a world wide basis. In Europe alone there are more than 30 million people using homeopathy. Homeopathy is a gentle form of treatment which is safe to use for all age groups . homeopaths treat holistically, with a focus on treating the individual rather than the disease. This ensures long lasting health benefits on both a physical and mental level alongside a sense of increased energy and well being.
Homeopathy is based upon the principle that like treats like. This principle describes that when a certain substance is able to produce certain symptoms in healthy individuals, then it follows that it also will cure the same symptoms when ill. This idea became known amongst the ancient Greek, but it was not until the beginning of the 19th. Century that it became a part of a system made by the German doctor and pharmacist Samuel Hahnemann.
Homeopathic medicine alone is sold for about 1 billion Euro yearly, 70% of this sale takes place in Europe, where an increase between 15-20% has been reported. Half of the French doctors prescribe homeopathy regularly, and 7 out of 10 French doctors state that homeopathy is effective.
