Homeopathy is a holistic form of medicine. In treating an illness, it takes into account the unique emotional and physical traits of the individual concerned.
Homeopathic remedies work by helping the body’s defense system to help itself. Obviously, anything that prevents the body functioning properly, for example a poor diet, lack of exercise, destructive emotions or environmental stresses, gives remedies an uphill struggle and requires attention.
Homeopathy at The Healing Sanctuary can be delivered in two ways:
1) Quick consultations over the counter where only the remedies are paid for.
2) A consultation in the consulting room, which is far more in depth and a consulting fee is charged.
Holistic systems of medicine, such as homeopathy, take into account more than just the physical symptoms of an illness, they emphasize prevention and the involvement of the individual in their own cure. The holistic approach is best expressed by the words of the doctor and philosopher Albert Schweitzer (1875 – 1965), who said: “within every patience there resides a doctor and we as physicians are at our best when we put our patients in touch with the doctor inside themselves”.
