my background as a homeopath
I studied at the London College of Homeopathy in 1985-1988 under Robert Davidson and Barbara Harwood. They had a team of renowned Homeopath teachers from all around the world at the college and I received my Licientate of Homeopathy (LCH) in 1988. Robert and Barbara's teachers were John Damonte and Dr Thomas Maughan. An interesting connection is that both men were members of the Druid order and responsible for the revival and teaching of homeopathy in England from the 1960's onwards.
what is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a natural form of medicine created in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions. It is a gentle holistic system of healing. It is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’. In other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms it causes if taken in large amounts. Homeopathic treatment works with your body’s own healing powers to bring about health and well being.
You are treated as an individual, not as a collection of disease labels. Homeopathy treats all your symptoms at all levels of your being – spiritual, emotional, mental and physical and finds the ‘like cures like’ match for them. The homeopathic approach is to work with the body's natural intelligence and to see all symptoms as signs and often releasing and cleansing of the body.
Homeopathically prepared remedies are highly diluted and vibrated (succussed) natural substances, providing the minimum dose. They are gentle, subtle and can have powerful healing powers. They are non-addictive, and not tested on animals. We know the principle or saying, 'Less is more;' as when substances are homoeopathically diluted and vibrated, a vast range of remedies now become available to us, we can use bland substances, as well as toxic poisons, for remarkable healing. We use remedies from sea salt (Natrum Muriaticum) to snake venom (Lachesis) to potentised human diseases or discharges. At the level of vibration, dilution and resonance, great healing is possible.
