Frequently Asked Questions

What is homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine that uses highly diluted substances to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. It is based on the principle of “like cures like,” where a substance that can cause symptoms in a healthy person is used to treat similar symptoms in a sick person.

How does homeopathy work?

Homeopathy works on the principle that a substance that can produce symptoms in a healthy person can stimulate the body’s self-healing mechanisms to overcome those symptoms. The diluted remedies used in homeopathy are believed to carry an energetic imprint that triggers the body’s healing response.

What conditions can homeopathy treat?

Homeopathy can be used to treat a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, including but not limited to allergies, respiratory problems, digestive disorders, skin conditions, hormonal imbalances, musculoskeletal issues, and mental health concerns. It can also provide support during pregnancy, childbirth, and postnatal care.

Is homeopathy safe?

Yes, homeopathy is considered safe when practiced by trained professionals. Homeopathic remedies are highly diluted and generally have no toxic side effects. They are safe to use alongside conventional medications, making homeopathy suitable for people of all ages, including infants, children, and pregnant women.

How long does a homeopathic treatment take?

The duration of homeopathic treatment varies depending on several factors, including the individual’s health condition, the severity of the symptoms, and the response to the remedies. Some acute conditions can see improvement within a short period, while chronic conditions may require longer treatment durations.

Can homeopathy be used alongside conventional medicine?

Yes, homeopathy can be used alongside conventional medicine. It is a complementary form of healthcare that can work alongside other treatments to enhance the healing process. However, it is important to inform your healthcare provider about all the treatments you are receiving to ensure coordinated care.

Is homeopathy effective for all individuals?

Homeopathy works on an individual basis, and its effectiveness varies from person to person. While many individuals have reported positive outcomes with homeopathic treatment, the response can differ based on factors such as the individual’s overall health, lifestyle, and adherence to the prescribed remedies.

How are homeopathic remedies prepared?

Homeopathic remedies are prepared through a process called potentization. This involves diluting a substance and then vigorously shaking it, known as succussion. This process is repeated several times to enhance the energetic properties of the remedy. The final diluted remedy is then made into pellets, liquid drops, or powders.

Are homeopathic remedies regulated?

In New Zealand, homeopathic remedies are regulated as medicines under the Medicines Act 1981. The products available in the market undergo quality control measures to ensure safety and adherence to manufacturing standards. It is important to purchase remedies from reputable sources to ensure their quality and effectiveness.
