Homeopathy

What is Homeopathy?

Barbs
  • Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine, which focuses on the individual patient as an entity, not solely on their disease. Information gathering prior to prescribing is usually very detailed, because each case will be considered unique. Ten different cats with cat flu might require ten different homeopathic regimes, if they differ markedly in their symptoms.
  • This system has been in use for 200 years.
  • Homeopathy operates on the principle of like cures like. As an example, the common weed Wandering Jew (Tradescantia) is a common irritant for dogs' skin, causing marked redness and itching. A homeopathic preparation made from the plant can be effective in alleviating this misery.
  • The British Royal Family have supported and used homeopathy for generations. Their longevity and vigour in their senior years could be considered a good demonstration of the beneficial effects it has had on their health.
  • Homeopathic preparations are absorbed from the mucous membranes, usually of the mouth. This means that the animal does not have to swallow it for it to be effective. Usually it is easy for you to put a few drops on a small piece of food or onto your animal's gums.
  • Homeopathy is a natural healing system, which stimulates the body to heal itself. It is safe, effective and gentle.
