Connecting mind and body
An often overlooked connection between mind and body is the way in which even mild mental ill-health can have an adverse affect on our physical selves. American researches found that mild depression can quicken the deaths of patients with heart problems: the incidence of abnormal heartbeat was three times higher in depressed patients. It is also now thought that stress may raise cholesterol levels, potentially increasing the risk of heart disease. Homeopathy is a holistic therapy which aims to help mind and body.
What is Homeopathy
Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine, based on an understanding of the interconnection between mind and body. By taking a full case history, homeopaths aim to treat the whole person, not just the disease. Instead of attacking symptoms with strong drugs, homeopathy aims to stimulate and strengthen the immune system, thereby helping the body's natural tendency to heal its self. Homeopathic medicine is perscribed in very low dilution after a special matching process, which takes into account individual symptoms and characteristics.
