Why Homeopathy is worth a try
by Lou Rubic
I love homeopathy. It is a system of medicine that is constantly under attack by sceptics, however there is a long history of observational evidence and personal experience supporting the use of homeopathy as a safe and effective adjunct to any wellness prescription.
Homeopathy is based on the premise that “like cures like”. This idea was expanded upon and developed by Samuel Hahnemann in 1790 when he was studying herbal medicine and experimented on himself and his family with dosages. He took an extract of the Peruvian Cinchona bark in high doses and noticed it caused symptoms similar to malaria, without actually having malaria. An extract of this herb, quinine, is still used today to treat malaria. Another example of this is the use of homeopathically prepared onion to treat hayfever symptoms that include watery, burning eyes.
Homeopathic medicines are prepared by diluting the original substance, and then ‘potentising’ through a process of succussion (creating vibration). Due to this dilution process, homeopathic medicines are easy to take, tasteless and safe to use when take pharamceutical medications. Suitable for all ages, even pets.
