Homeopathy is a gentle form of alternative medicine, intended to stimulate the body's own healing mechanism, or immune system to heal itself. Described as a holistic alternative to conventional medicine, it can be appealing to those who have suffered with chronic illnesses, and feel that the treatments attempted by conventional medicine have been too reductionist. Those wishing to try a homeopathic approach can find homeopaths located in Cosmetic City Of London, South West London and Lymington.

Founded by Samuel Hahneman in the late 1800’s, homeopathy is based on a theory often described as "like cures like". Hahnemann studied medicine in Leipzig, then moved to Vienna for further study, finally graduating as a doctor at the University of Erlangen in August 1779. Despite his medical training, he was rather disillusioned with the medicine of his time, which ultimately led to his founding of homeopathy. If you would like to find out more about homeopathy, there are practising homeopaths you can contact in Harley Street, Notting Hill and South London.

Homeopathy focusses on the body’s innate intelligent self healing mechanism and works to strengthen this by using minute doses of carefully selected medicines. It takes the view that patients, not diseases, are the focus of healing. So treatment aims to stimulate the body's natural defences and recuperative powers. Homeopathy takes the position that this kind of approach can be effective for chronic diseases, where other methods have failed. If this approach appeals to you, you may wish to contact homeopaths situated in Saffron Walden, Milton Keynes and Liverpool.

A chronic disease is a disease or other human health condition that is persistent or long-lasting in nature. The term chronic is usually applied when the course of the disease lasts for more than three months. The word is often misused and misunderstood to mean "serious", whereas its true meaning is purely related to the duration of the disease, with the opposite of chronic being termed acute. If a relapse is experienced, followed by recurrence of the disease, then the more appropriate term would be "recurrent"; recurrent diseases relapse repeatedly, with periods of remission in between. If you have been suffering from a chronic disease and would like to find out more about homeopathic medicine, there are practices in Stowmarket, Autism and Lewisham.

If you have a chronic disease, and have tried conventional medicine without success, then you may find homeopathy useful to kick start a process of healing in the body. Different homeopaths may advocate slightly different treatments depending upon their assessment of your symptoms.
