About classical homeopathic philosophy
When the body´s natural balance called homeostasis (homeo meaning the same, stasis meaning standing still), is disturbed, symptoms and diseases occur. The body is constantly trying to maintain this balance, 24 hours a day, every day of your life. Take Homeostasis of maintaining normal blood pressure for example. If some stimulus (stress) or other disturbance causes blood pressure to rise, this is detected by pressure sensitive cells in certain arteries. These send nerve impulses to the brain, which sends nerve impulses to the heart. Heart rate decreases and blood pressure goes down. This returns blood pressure to normal, and homeostasis is returned.
The classical homeopath works together with you to find the causation of the disturbance. The homeopathic practitioner will look for links between signs and symptoms, even when it might look like there is no direct link to other people. Classical homeopathy is based on returning the homeostasis, thereby bringing back the individual’s balance; homeopathy does not simply treat the disease.
Classical homeopathy is based on finding the similimum, a homeopathic remedy that fits you and your specific complaints like a lock-and-key. Therefore, the treatment is personal and completely custom-made to suit you and your needs. Homeopathic remedies are medicines designed to stimulate your own healing powers, during acute as well as chronic ailments, and have no side effects.
Why choose for homeopathy?As long as we are healthy, we do not really think about how our body functions during day-to-day activities. It is only when our body seems to protest and stops us from doing what we want and need to do, that we are confronted with the systems of our body. The human body is a very fine-tuned and intelligent device. Everything is perfectly balanced – this is called homeostasis – to maintain this state. The body is driven by some sort of intelligence. This intelligence is the self-healing power of the body. You can observe it well when you cut yourself. Without you even doing anything consciously, the blood clots, the wound closes, a scab forms to close the wound from outside influences, and after a while new skin forms.
Homeopathy stimulates this self-healing power of the body, during acute as well as chronic illnesses. For children as well as adults, homeopathy is a very gentle and effective treatment, and can be used in nearly all diseases and complaints. In situations where permanently removing signs and symptoms is not possible, homeopathy can greatly relieve them, even in serious cases. You can generally use allopathic prescription drugs prescribed by other doctors without problems during homeopathic treatment.
Homeopathy works together with this self-healing power of the body. Together with you, to retain the balance – the homeostasis – and to help you on your way to better health.
