It examines your life as a whole and sees health as much more than the physical body: all viewed as one are your relationships, lifestyle (diet, exercise etc.), attitude to work, emotional outlook, intellectual function, systems, organs and external body. Homœopathy is not a quick fix; from a homœopathic point of view becoming ill is not an "out of the blue" occurrence but the end result of many factors and accordingly it takes time and patience to unravel the process that got you to that point. The process of healing means looking at all the influences which have played a part in your illness and prescribing appropriately. Through homœopathic treatment and good support systems we can restore a more permanent and sustainable state of health in spirit, mind and body.
