The story of homeopathy began over 200 years ago with its founder Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician. Hahnemann was disillusioned with the medical practice of his day, believing that he harmed more people than he cured and that those who improved did so despite the medicines, not because of them. He ceased practicing medicine and concentrated on developing a philosophy of healing. He believed in the body's innate ability to heal itself and theorised that symptoms of “disease” are actually the body's attempts to adjust to upsetting external stimuli, a bit like a tight-rope walker waving his arms around to regain balance after he has been pushed.

Through trial and error (experiments that he often carried out on himself), Hahnemann observed that:
•  Medicines or substances that cause a set of symptoms in a healthy person will remove a similar set of symptoms in an unhealthy person; and
•  Miniscule doses of remedies bring about healing without the side effects often experienced with larger “heroic” doses.

These were and still are exceptional and quite radical beliefs. The following example may help to clarify. Ipecac causes vomiting when swallowed, it is often used to help people vomit poisons that they have ingested. However, miniscule homeopathic doses of ipecac are used to alleviate nausea and vomiting.

Homeopathy is described as both a science and an art. A science because the testing of substances on healthy people is conducted by strict rules and the symptoms elicited are meticulously recorded and annotated. Most homeopathic remedies have been in use for hundreds of years, their history and efficacy observed and recorded throughout. In Europe , Heel homeopathic products are tested on cohorts of thousands and Heel products are routinely prescribed by GPs. Homeopathy is described as an art because the practitioner needs to illicit essential health information during an interview and then match the complete set of symptoms with a remedy picture.

Homeopathy is recognised as safe, effective and inexpensive by the World Health Organisation. In many countries such as South Africa , India , Germany and France it is studied at university level and graduates have the same status as medical doctors.

Many people are confused between the terms homeopath and naturopath. A naturopath is a health professional who uses a variety of natural healing modalities, including homeopathy. A homeopath uses only homeopathy. Louise at Simply Natural Health Care is a naturopath who believes that homeopathy used in conjunction with nutrition and herbal medicine is the best way to return the body to health. For this reason, Simply Natural Health Care offers a free homeopathic or Bach flower remedy with your first consultation.
