"I've not been well since I had flu"
"The doctors say none of my tests show anything wrong, but
I know I'm not well"
"I don't feel like my old self"
These are people talking about their loss of vitality. Vitality
is the ability to respond to challenges in our lives, to
recover fully from illness and to be creative in our relationships
and in our work. Illness which can be diagnosed by tests
or examination follows loss of vitality and is caused by
it. Homeopathy works by initiating a process by which vitality
is enhanced so that health and creativity return.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine based
on the idea of "like cures like"
That means that the way in which we become ill and all the
symptoms we feel are matched by those that the remedy would
cause if it were repeatedly given to a healthy person [eg.
which is onion, for hayfever in some patients].
In tiny, but powerful doses
that remedy can then work
with our vitality to exactly stimulate those aspects which
have been affected. Because the system is precise it is rare
to experience side effects.
