Homeopathy

HomeopathyHomeopathic medicine is based on the research and observation of the 18th century, German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann. He hypothesized, like Hippocrates, 2,000 years earlier, that what a drug can cause, it can cure, which is the way of similars. Indeed the word, 'Homeopathy', is Greek for 'similar suffering'.

Unhappy with the large doses of compound mixtures prescribed by conventional doctors in his time, which Hahnemann felt did more harm than good, he strove to reduce the toxic, side-effects of his remedies, by serial dilution and succussion, or shaking. A minimum dose of his remedies, all derived from natural substances, was then prescribed.

Hahnemann recognized, as did Plato and Hippocrates long before him, the importance of treating the person as a whole, rather than just their particular disease symptoms.. So he would select a remedy that matched the totality of a person's symptoms, reflecting their unique constitution.

"The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole." Plato

"It is far more important to know what person the disease has than what disease the person has." Hippocrates

Over the past 250 years since Hahnemann's day, Homeopathy has been widely used throughout the world. Today, the World Health Organization estimates that Homeopathy is used by 500 million people worldwide.

At Suffolk Clinic, we offer a homeopathic medicine consultation service for adults

In the initial consultation, we take time to listen carefully to you and the details of the symptoms that are troubling you, so that we can build a picture of them in relation to you. Then we prescribe a remedy whose symptom picture most closely matches you as a whole person. Follow up consultations are, initially, a month to six weeks apart.
