Julie Donald - Homeopath
Your Own Central Coast Homeopath
Homeopathy is a system of medicine which is based on treating your body with highly diluted substances, which triggers your body’s natural system of healing. Based on your symptoms, Julie will match the most appropriate medicine to your needs.
It works on the principle of similia similibus curentur, or “like cures like” - that is, a substance that would cause symptoms in a healthy person is used to cure those same symptoms in illness. For example, one might treat a person suffering from insomnia with a remedy made from coffee. Because coffee causes the symptoms of insomnia in larger doses, and the symptoms of illnesses are the signs of our bodies discharging the ill condition, the principle of “like cures like” suggests that a carefully diluted homeopathic solution of coffee will help prompt the body to recover.
Carrying on the ancient homeopath’s tradition on the Central Coast
Homeopathy has a well-documented history of use far older than almost any conventional medicines. The modern principles of the technique were laid down by German physician Samuel Hahnemann in 1796, after he witnessed the malaria treatments being proscribed for sailors. After sampling the suggested cure – the quinine-rich cinchona bark – he found it induced malaria-like symptoms, which were in line with the principles of “like cures like” proposed by ancient medical writers Hippocrates and Paracelsus.
Taking this proof of the efficacy of homeopathic cures, Hahnemann refined his process for diluting these active ingredients – often harmful or poisonous – to safe levels. He explained his theory in the landmark homeopathic manual, “The Organon of the Healing Art”, which founded the practice of modern western homeopathy.
A quick, cost-effective treatment for many common conditions
Over the centuries homeopathic practitioners have honed and expanded their craft to an impressive level. 21st century homeopathy recognises a huge variety of remedies capable of triggering a natural bodily response to all sorts of disease and health complaints, which are usually cheaper and easier to take than conventional medicine. With today’s technology practitioners such as those at Total Health Clinic Central Coast can easily produce homeopathic solutions diluted to up to 1/1030th of their original concentration, pushing homeopathic treatment forward towards the future.
