Constitutional Prescription in Homeopathy

Homeopathy is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’. The symptoms are the body’s way of taking action to overcome an illness. This healing response is automatic in living organisms termed the vital response.

The application of “The Minimum Dose” :

The application of a correct homeopathic medicine increases the body’s ability to respond to an illness and so makes the body’s own healing more rapid and effective. In Homeopathy only ‘the minimum dose’ is employed, upon the understanding that the stimulus of the medicine works from within and is not imposed from the outside. Only enough is administered to initiate the healing process which then carries on, driven by its own internal healing mission. The use of the minimum dose has the advantage that it does not produce the gross side effects so often caused by conventional treatments.

Conventional medicines suppress symptoms, masking them, and this is why you often have to stay on drugs for a long time or find your symptoms return when you come off the drugs. Homeopaths do not suppress symptoms. Homeopathic treatment works with your body’s own healing powers to bring about health and well-being. Patients are treated as individuals, not as a collection of disease labels. Homeopathy treats all your symptoms at all levels of your being, be it spiritual, emotional, mental and physical. Homeopathy offers holistic approach to health and healing. 

The healing agents used in homeopathy are derived from mineral, plant and animal sources and are used according to the principle of like cures like. When a person is treated as a whole, the symptoms presenting in different parts of their body will naturally be cured because their overall health has been addressed, that is to say their mental, emotional and physical symptoms have all  been taken into account and treated by the homeopath. The long-term aim of homeopathic treatment is not only to alleviate the immediate presenting problem, but also to address the underlying causes. A person’s susceptibility to disease can arise from psychological imbalance, stress, physical weaknesses and heredity. A well-chosen homeopathic medicine strengthens a person’s self-curative response.
