Homeopathy is a gentle, holistic system of healing that uses very dilute doses of
carefully prepared medicines that have been tested on healthy consenting human
It is based on the
principle of ‘like cures like’: i.e. an illness is treated with a remedy that,
in homeopathic clinical trials, has been found to produce similar symptoms in a
healthy person. For example,
coffee is widely used as a stimulant, but in homeopathic form it can help with some forms of insomnia.
A safe and effective option
are non-toxic and carry no risk of harmful side effects or addiction. Homeopathy is therefore a gentle, safe and effective
option that is especially suitable for pregnant women, children and newborns. It is more than a placebo,
as can be seen by it’s success with plants, infants, animals and cells in petri dishes.
"Homoeopathy is a highly developed health
practice that uses a systematic approach to the totality of a person's
health. Anyone seeking a fuller understanding of health and healing will
find Homoeopathy extremely important and applicable." Gay Gaer Luce PhD (science writer - twice winner of the national science writer's award).

introduced to the U.K. by Dr Quin in 1828, is sanctioned by the UK Government and the Royal Family,
and has been an integral part of the National Health Service (NHS) since it was
founded in 1948.
What's the difference between Herbalism, Conventional Medicine and Homeopathy?
remedies tend to use plants or minerals in material doses, allopathy
(conventional medicine) uses synthesized and highly concentrated doses
of active ingredients often first found in nature. Homeopathy, on the other hand, uses highly diluted and
succussed doses of natural substances.
It is this dilution that makes it safer than allopathy and herbalism, and the
succussion that allows it to still contain effective nanostructures. This ‘minimum dose’ concept is one of
the key principles of homeopathy. For more research evidence on high dilutions, please see the articles here.

The first was bebop, the
second was homeopathy.”
