Homeopathic Remedies

Homoeopathic remedies contain one or more substances potentised according to homoeopathic principles to enhance their healing potential. While some of the principles of homoeopathy were in use by the ancient Greeks and Egyptians, it wasn’t until the 18th century that it was fully developed into a system of medicine by the German physician Dr Samuel Hahnemann.

Homeopathic Remedies Info

Homoeopathy became spectacularly popular in Europe and the United States in the 1800s and its strongest advocates included European royalty, American entrepreneurs, literary giants and religious leaders. But at the time that it was gaining widespread popularity, it became the object of deep-seated animosity and vigilant opposition from “orthodox” medical authorities and practitioners. The conflict between homoeopathy and the medical “establishment” was protracted and bitter. We know who won the first round of this conflict. We await the results of the second round. Hopefully, we will soon discover that a "fight" over healing is inappropriate and that various approaches to healing are necessary to build a comprehensive and effective health care system.

(Amended excerpt from the “Condensed History of Homoeopathy” article on the website of Homeopathic Educational Services)

The German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) first coined the word “Homoeopathy” - derived from two Greek words: homoios which means “similar” and pathos which means “suffering.” Hahnemann is considered the father of homoeopathy.

Homoeopathy's basic premise is called the “principle of similars,” and it refers to recurrent observation and experience that a low potency, high energy substance can elicit a healing response for the same specific syndrome of symptoms (or suffering) that it has been proven to cause when given in overdose to a healthy person.

The use of the principle of similars in healing actually has ancient roots (Coulter, 1975). In the 4th century BCE Hippocrates is known to have said "through the like, disease is produced, and through the application of the like it is cured." The famed Delphic Oracle in Greece proclaimed the value of the law of similars, stating "that which makes sick shall heal." Paracelsus, a well-known 16th century physician and alchemist, used the law of similars extensively in practice and referred to it in his writings.

Immunisations and certain allergy treatments are modern examples of using the principle of similars in medicine.

Homoeopathy has its own sophisticated system of using substances from the plant, mineral, chemical and animal kingdoms.  Homeopathic preparations are referred to as "remedies", made by a process of dilution (to varying degrees of low potency) and succussion.  This process is called "potentisation" by homeopaths - the lower the level of original substance and the greater the succussion, the more “potent” the remedy. 

Homoeopathic medicine is so widely practiced by physicians in Europe that it is no longer appropriate to consider it “alternative medicine” there. Approximately 30% of French doctors and 20% of German doctors use homoeopathic medicines regularly, while over 40% of British physicians refer patients to homoeopathic doctors, and almost half of Dutch physicians consider homeopathic medicines to be effective (Fisher and Ward, 1994). The fact that the British Royal Family has used and supported homoeopathy since the 1830s reflects its longstanding presence in Britain's national health care system.

Despite the refusal of New Zealand, Australian, American and some other Governmental, legislative and medical agencies (along with certain outspoken minority groups) to recognise the benefits of homoeopathy (ignoring more than 200 years of successful use without harm, whilst citing a lack of “scientific evidence”), homoeopathy remains a popular choice for many people looking to support the health and healing of themselves, their family, loved ones and pets.

Luckily, despite both overt and covert efforts to the contrary, you still have the right to choose how you manage and maintain your health and wellbeing.

While there are a few homoeopathic remedies which can almost always be recommended for certain conditions, such as arnica for muscular bruising, in most cases remedies should be matched to the individual, not the problem. Homoeopaths use the analogy of the onion; as more layers are exposed different symptoms appear, allowing a more complete picture of an individual to be built up. Thus the homoeopath can more accurately recommend the right remedy to assist in facilitating a healing response.

For this reason we strongly recommend consulting a qualified homoeopath before purchasing this product.

Homeopathic Remedies Benefits

Homoeopathy is holistic medicine with no side effects and the potential to completely remove disease when the person is matched with the right remedy. Benefits are specific to each individual homoeopathic remedy.

Homeopathic Remedies Side Effects

Safe and non-toxic when taken as prescribed. Taking the wrong remedy will simply have no effect, and do no harm. Continuing to take it may ‘prove’ the remedy and manifest its symptom picture. Some remedies and potencies will temporarily aggravate symptoms as the body’s healing mechanisms are stimulated. As soon as the symptoms improve the homoeopathic remedy has worked and no further doses should be taken.

Product Reviews

  • It works for us but....

    The sleep drops work perfectly for my partner and myself but we bought a little bottle for sister-in-law and it doesn't work for her at all. She was low on magnesium but after she took some extra supplements the sleep-drops still do not much for her. Saying that: she always had trouble with good nights sleep so .....don't know



  • Highly recommend

    When I had a really bad period a year ago of sleep problems they were the product that got me back to a normal sleep pattern. I take them now only occasionally when needed. I think it's important to take exactly as recommended on the label



  • Best sleep drops around

    I first brought these for my son who was always a bad sleeper, waking in the night all the time. Now if he wakes more than once I give him a drop and he has a nice sound sleep. They help a very overtired baby sleep too. I always buy these for my two young kids.
