short introduction and first
The word homoeopathy comes from the Greek and means
Homoeopathy is a complete system of medicine which aims to promote general
health, by reinforcing the body’s own natural healing capacity. Homoeopathy
does not have treatments for diseases. It has remedies for people with diseases.
Perhaps the most important fact about homoeopathy is that
it is based on a conception of sickness and disease that is essentially
rational, because it is in accord with natural law. Sickness is not a local
affair but involves the whole person, both psychologically and physically.
People are not sick because they have a local disease. The local disease is
there because they are sick. They are sick because their cells and tissues are
not healthy and because, in consequence, there is a state of disorder and lack
of efficiency in vital function.
Sickness is a highly individual matter. What counts in every case is not only
the nature of the causal factor but also the personal, particular and pertinent
reactions of the cells and tissue fluids of the individual. Inasmuch as disease
is a deviation form the normal, a disturbance of the balance and rhythm of
metabolic process essential to health, it is the living body itself that must
undertake the task of reversing the disease process, repairing the damage and
restoring normal function. Homoeopathy stimulates and strengthens the
natural curative powers of the body.
