It is becoming common place now, for parents to turn to homeopathy as a natural form of treatment for common childhood ailments.
And it is a growing trend, proving particularly useful for young children and in pregnancy, where pharmaceutical drugs are often unsafe. The remedies are not toxic, and can even be used on newborn babies.
The principle behind the therapy is that ‘like is treated with like’. The remedies chosen are those which, in much larger quantities, can produce similar symptoms to those being treated. The remedy acts as a catalyst, kick-starting the healing process.
The remedies are very dilute – so weak, in fact, that there are no measurable molecules left of the original substance. And this is why medical science is still reluctant to embrace homeopathy – it cannot explain how it works.
Homeopathic treatment is also available on the NHS at homeopathic hospitals in London, Bristol, Glasgow, Liverpool and Tunbridge Wells. There are also a large number of professionally trained non-medical homeopaths.
And, although self-help homeopathy can be extremely effective, it is better to see a qualified practitioner for long-term health problems. Click the photo for further information about homeopathy and maternity.
