Welcome to Al Shafa’a Homeopathic Practice
What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy was established by Dr Samuel Hahnemann over 200 years ago & has become one of the most widely used systems of alternative medicine in this country and the world over. It is one of the few alternative therapies that is available on the NHS, with four NHS funded homeopathic hospitals in the UK.
Homeopathy is a ‘holistic’ therapy. This means that the homeopath takes the entire person into account, rather than just individual symptoms of illness. This is with the goal of bringing about an overall balance within the body leading to improved general health. The aim is to eradicate symptoms of illness – whatever they may be – rather than simply masking them or providing temporary relief.
Remedies are derived from natural substances & are used to gently stimulate the body’s natural defense system. These are therefore safe for everyone to use & can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine.
