“The Physician’s high & only mission is to heal the sick. The highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle & permanent restoration of the health, or removal and annihilation of the disease in its whole extent, in the shortest, most reliable and most harmless way, on easily comprehensible principles.
”Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843)
“The Organon of Medicine”
In 1796 a German Doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, discovered a different approach to the cure of the sick, which he called Homoeopathy.
Homoeopathy is a natural and holistic system of medicine that helps the body to heal itself – it stimulates your natural healing processes to health and balance of your vital energies. It is a safe alternative to conventional medicine, which is suitable for all the family – babies, children, pregnant and breastfeeding women (under supervision of a Homoeopath), adults and can also be safely used in animals.
The cornerstone of homoeopathic prescribing is based on the "law of similars” i.e. matching the symptom picture of the patient with that of the remedy. For example, an onion can cause streaming eyes and a runny nose. A homoeopathic remedy derived from onions, Allium cepa, can be successful in alleviating these symptoms in, say someone suffering from hay fever.
Homoeopathic remedies are subject through process of potentisation, which enables the remedy to act as a catalyst on subtle energies of the body. Unlike some conventional drugs, homoeopathic medicines are non-addictive and have no dangerous side effects.
Our Pharmacy prepare and dispense homoeopathic remedies to traditional Hahnemannian standards for practitioners and individuals seeking homoeopathic remedies.
Our Homoeopathic Dispensary holds an extensive range of homoeopathic remedies in various potencies from tablets, pillules, granules, and liquids as well as the LM potencies. We can advise you on appropriate selection of remedies that is suited to your constitution.
The Pharmacy handles requests and queries from all over the country with its extensive range of potencies ranging from 6c to 50M in pillules, tablets and homoeopathic creams, as well as LM potencies providing a comprehensive service, whereby requests and prescriptions can be dispensed.
We practice "classical homoeopathy" as instructed by the enlightened Samuel Hahnemann. Homoeopathy views the patient as a whole and treats the individual rather than just the disease, taking into account all the emotional, mental and physical characteristics-'heal the person, not just the illness'.
How to take the remedies:
Homoeopathic remedies are delicate and need careful handling. Remedies should be placed on the tongue without touching and kept in the mouth for few minutes.
Allow about 20 minutes before or after anything else is put into the mouth
(e.g. food, drinks, toothpaste, coffee, peppermint, tobacco, camphor, menthol, eucalyptus, other strong smelling substances, and other medicines.)In emergency it should be given as soon as possible. You can crush and dissolve remedies in water and sip them, but do not swallow the pill down with water, tea or coffee.
DOSAGE: For acute cases, one dose every 2 hours for up to 6 doses, less acute cases one dose 3 times a day between meals until the condition improves, or AS DIRECTED BY YOUR HOMOEOPATH. As your symptoms improve, increase the time between each repeated dose. STOP taking your remedy as soon as definite and lasting improvement occurs. If symptoms worsen consult your practitioner.
Remedies are best STORED IN THEIR ORIGINAL CONTAINER,IN A COOL,DRY,DARK PLACE AWAY FROM STRONG SMELLING ODOURS, SUNLIGHT AND HEAT.
Homoeopathic remedies are available in many different potency of which 6C and 30C are most common and available over the counter. Higher potencies are usually prescribed by a homoeopath.
