Like my own personal journey into Homeopathy, the evolution of our new centre has been a long one. Having been a nurse and worked in the medical field for more than 34 years, I can honestly say that I am finally doing what I have really wanted to do all my professional life.
Working in traditional healthcare, I always knew there was more than just allopathic protocol available to patients. Homeopathy works alongside allopathic medicine and it is this which makes it ‘complementary’ rather than ‘alternative’.
So many people think like me but are perhaps afraid to try something that is patient centric rather than disease centric.
Homeopathy is a system of natural health care that has been in worldwide use for over 200 years. It is recognized by the World Health Organization as the second largest therapeutic system in use in the world. While it is most popular in India and South America, over thirty million people in Europe also benefit from its practice. There is now a dedicated centre here in Malta offering an open daily acute clinic so that one can ‘drop in’ without an appointment.
Homeopathy is based on principles developed throughout the history of medicine, both in eastern and western worlds. The first principle of 'like cures like' can be looked at in several ways. One is to assume that the body knows what it is doing and that symptoms are the body's way of taking action to overcome an illness. This healing response is automatic in living organisms; we term it, the vital response.
The application of a correct homeopathic medicine increases the body's ability to take this action and so makes the body's own healing more rapid and effective. In chronic illness, this vital stimulus literally lifts the suffering person over the stumbling block of their disease.
Whilst we appreciate the need in certain circumstances for prescription medications and would never advise you to go against the advice of your specialist, the world in general is moving away from antibiotics, antidepressants, anti-inflammatory and anti ‘everything’ medications; in homeopathy our aim is not to suppress anything but to let our body heal itself in the safest and most gentle way. A holistic approach to health and wellbeing is essential and one I always subscribe to.
