What is Homoeopathy?

The basic principle of homoeopathy can best be summarised by the basic homoeopathic law of Similars: "like cures like."

Homoeopathic "remedies", as they are called, are prepared in a very specific manner. The original substance is usually from a natural source, such as plants or minerals, and is progressively diluted and “potentised” by violent shaking at each step, until the final remedy often theoretically contains none of the original substance! Theories for the mechanism of action include some form of electromagnetic "memory" on the water used to dilute the substance, which occurs with a process called “cavitation” during the shaking process. These are technical terms that do not have to be understood to use homoeopathy successfully.


Because homoeopathy seems to work at an energetic cellular level, the methods for diagnosing and treating disease are very different to traditional medical thought. Homoeopaths view disease as a manifestation of a disturbance in the inherent "vital force," and symptoms of the disease are absolutely unique to each patient. Not all animals manifest exactly the same symptoms for the same diseases.  The homoeopath views these different manifestations as individual differences in the state of the patients' energy; therefore, they would receive different prescriptions. For this reason it is important to know your animal well and to observe him / her closely before a consultation. Homoeopathy is said to treat the patient, not the disease, working with the life force and immune system to “teach the body to heal itself".

Conventional medications usually treat signs of the disease or symptoms rather than the underlying causes or susceptibilities that caused the problem in the first place. In homoeopathy causes and susceptibilities are of paramount importance, and so it often reaches the body on a much deeper level than conventional medicine is able to.

There are around two thousand homoeopathic remedies from which to choose when a prescription is made, and the trained homeopath must be familiar with them to find the one that best matches a patient's symptoms. This is the reason that the first consultation takes a long time, because not only is there a lot of information the homoeopath needs to elicit but he/she may spend hours analysing an animal after the patient has left.

A homoeopath will also be looking for obstacles to cure, and will work to correct imbalances in the environment, diet and daily routine of the animal. For this reason homoeopaths may make certain changes to diet and advise certain supplementary treatments, such as herbs, tonics, nutritional aids, and other natural therapies, such as healing or acupuncture.
