Homœopathy is a complete system of medicine developed by German physician and chemist, Dr Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), based on the principle of “let likes cure likes”. This law or principle is based on a long held belief as far back as Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, and other ancient healers such as Paracelsus, that substances that produce symptoms in a healthy individual can be used to treat similar symptoms in a sick person. Thus homœopathic treatment is believed to stimulate the body’s ability to fight infection and susceptibility to disease.

Homœopathy is now used worldwide, with a 200 year history of clinical experience. It is recognised by the World Health Organisation as a valid form of healthcare.

Homœopathy may be used in the treatment of chronic illness, acute conditions and minor accidents requiring first aid. It is a complementary medicine and can work alongside conventional treatments and medications where applicable or required.

Homœopathy aims to treat the whole person, taking into account personality, lifestyle and hereditary factors as well as the history of the disease. Since all patients are unique, homœopathic medicines are prescribed to treat patients as individuals. For example, headaches in different patients would each be treated with different medicines, according to the patient’s individual symptoms.

Homœopathy can be of benefit for all ages, at any stage including pregnant women, mothers, fathers, babies, young children, teenagers, and the elderly. Homœopathy can treat the symptoms of a wide range of conditions including, for example:

  • Acute complaints – coughs, colds, earache, food poisoning, hangover, travel sickness etc.
  • Chronic complaints – skin conditions, hormone imbalances, depression, headaches, behavioural problems, digestive disturbances, asthma, arthritis etc.
  • First aid situations – bites, stings, hives, injuries, trauma, shock etc.
  • Vague symptoms - where there are no identifiable causes of disease, but the person feels far from well.

Are there any side effects?

Healing takes place in different ways and reactions to a medicine vary. Sometimes there is an immediate improvement. Sometimes healing begins with an increased feeling of well being, even though symptoms initially remain. In some cases, old symptoms recur as part of the healing process. Occasionally there is a temporary worsening of the symptoms prior to improvement. You should tell your homœopath if you have any of these reactions.

Your homœopath may also work in consultation with your doctor or other healthcare practitioner if necessary.

Can homœopathic medicines be taken with conventional medicines?

Homœopathic medicines may be taken in conjunction with conventional drugs without any adverse effects; however, it is recommended that the advice of an AROH-registered homœopath be sought regarding this matter. All professional members of the AHA are registered with the Australian Register of Homœopaths (AROH).
