What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine based on the principle that ‘like treats like” i.e. a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms. Homeopathy uses specially prepared, highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet or liquid form. Prescriptions are tailored to each individual patient, according to their specific symptoms.

The idea of treating ‘like with like’

The idea that a substance can be damaging in large amounts, but beneficial in small amounts is not new to science, in fact this concept (referred to as hormesis) has been around for decades and is increasingly well documented in such fields as biology and toxicology. You may also already have come across the concept of treating ‘like with like’ in conventional medicine e.g. allergens such as pollen being used in minute doses to de-sensitise allergic patients.

The holistic approach

Homeopathic medicine treats the person as a whole, rather than treating specific conditions in isolation. This ‘holistic’ approach is one of the main differences between homeopathy and conventional medicine. For example, if you were suffering from claustrophobia, depression and backache, the conventional route might involve two separate courses of treatment from different specialists, by contrast a homeopath will consider all symptoms together as a whole (whether mental, emotional or physical), possibly addressing them with a single prescription.

Is Homeopathy safe?

Homeopathic treatment has an excellent safety record and because homeopathic medicines are non-toxic they can be used in cases involving babies, children and during pregnancy.

My Homeopathic journey

My Name is Hala Marzouk, I discovered Homeopathy as a patient when I was diagnosed with cancer in 2000 and was supported mentally, emotionally and physically by a homeopath during my treatment and until full recovery. Since then, homeopathy has been of great help for me and my two children (now 24 and 21)

I have studied Homeopathy for 4 years and have graduated from the Centre for Homeopathic Education in London (CHE) where I a have obtained my Licentiate. I am a fully accredited Homeopath as I am a member of, and is insured through the Society of Homeopaths, and I am following its Code of Ethics.
