Homoeopathy is a system of treating disease that stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms without toxic side-effects. Homoeopathic practitioners, as a diagnostic profession, are able to play a greater role in the healthcare of patients by recognizing the need for referral and assuring that their prescriptions are allied to those of conventional medicine where required. Homoeopathic practitioners are registered with the Allied Health Professions Council of South Africa (AHPCSA).
It is a holistic medical practice, treating the whole person. The word homoeopathy comes from the Greek words 'homoios' meaning 'like or similar, and pathos meaning 'suffering'. Therefore these words encompass the essence of homoeopathy which is "like with like", That is the principle of Hahnemann "let like be treated with like."
The homeopathic way of thinking, a disease originates from a disturbance of the patient’s "vital force." The "vital force" is the life force energy that sustains life. As the origin of disease occurs on this energetic level, therefore the homeopathic remedy has also to be on this level to be effective.
Homoeopaths are trained to diagnose disease, formulate treatment and management protocols for patients, as well as prepare and dispense remedies according to homoeopathic principles.
