Homeopathy is a gentle, safe and effective form of medicine that has been used for over 200 years. It is one of the most widely used forms of medicine in the world today, used by an estimated 500 million people. Homeopathy is a holistic therapy that treats the individual. The homeopath will ask many questions about your health history, how you sleep, how you are emotionally for example, as well as recording current symptoms in order to build up a thorough, multi-dimensional picture. Each homeopathic remedy has a picture that is matched to the individual.
