What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy helps the body heal itself.

This might sound a bit naff.

On its own it does.

It might not make any sense.

Read on, and I promise to do my best to explain.

This could be worth a few minutes of your time …

So, how do homeopathic remedies work?

Homeopathic remedies are energetic medicines.

I lose some people here … but stay with me.

Conventional western medicines work on the physiology of the body. Their physical functions.

If you have a headache and you take a paracetamol, it blocks the chemical messengers in your brain that tell you you have pain (www.nhs.co.uk).

When you stop taking the paracetamol, often the headache will come back.


Because the headache is still there. It never went away. Your body just stopped hearing it.

Is this a problem?

It depends how you look at it.

It’s an option. For short term emergency use, it could be a good option in my opinion.

But, long term paracetamol use has been linked to an increased risk in issues like gastrointestinal bleeding (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29863746/)

You can’t pay Paul, without robbing Peter here.

So how is homeopathy different?

Homeopathic remedies don’t mask anything, they address the cause.

Why could you have a headache, and how could you cure it?

You can probably think of lots of reasons why. And what could help.

Dehydration – drink water.

Lack of sleep – rest.

Following a family argument – talk about it, resolve the issue.

Stress at work – reduce the stress load, find mindfulness activities to relieve the stress, and so on.

But, these things often take time.

Homeopathy helps the body heal itself.

That phrase again.

We have done a full circle.

Can you see how now?

It takes the cause, say one of the ones for the headache we talked about, and allows the body to heal this more quickly.

It is the catalyst.

And then the headache has gone.

And there are no toxic side effects.

And your body has learnt something. (More on this another time).
