Frequently asked questions:

Homeopaths believe that the body is a self-righting mechanism and that ill health generally develops from energy blocks caused by trauma, contagions, toxins and an inherited predisposition. Once the right homeopathic remedy/s are found to remove these energy blocks, then your body has the capacity to self-heal.
At the outset, the homeopath will assess your total health status by asking you questions about your and your families health and medical treatment, and then, from a ’like cures like’ perspective, will select for you one or more of the 3000+ homeopathic remedies created over the last 175 years which has the action to release the specific energy blocks that may be the cause of your ill health.
Here is an example of ‘like curing like’. It is commonly held that the caffeine in coffee can prevent sleep. In fact, sometimes people drink strong coffee specifically to stay awake. However, because of the unique way that a small amount of coffee is made into a homeopathic remedy, the coffee’s action is reversed and therefore may be given by a homeopath to reverse problems of sleeplessness. Hence ‘like cures like’.
