|A wide range of ailments can be treated
with homeopathy. This part of the site will give you some
information on some of the more typical or common
ailments that people have.
The site will be steadily developed over the coming weeks so if what you are interested in is not described below, feel free to email us with a specific question.
|Generally, you can
categorise ailments into 3 distinct types:
Ailments requiring First Aid are immediate problems of say accidents, insect bites or panic attacks
Acute Diseases are ones which have relatively short duration usually with a clear start and causation such as measles, food poisoning, coughs, sore throats or recovery from surgery.
Chronic Diseases last comparitively long times, don't necessarily have a clear start or causation and can be characterised by ongoing flare-ups or periods of worsening symptoms such as eczema, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome and insomnia.
Note I have given examples above of what are commonly known as diseases, however in reality it should be borne in mind that these are actually names given to certain collections of symptoms. In homeopathy we would not consider say measles or asthma as 'a disease' but as a collection of symptoms produced by the underlying disease. For the purposes of this page though, you will find information about these ailments listed under their commonly known names.
page doesn't cover first aid complaints
but gives a little information from a homeopathic
perspective on some common acute and chronic complaints. NOTE: some of the listed ailments are
not easily categorised as either acute or chronic, for
instance in the case of coughs, a bad cough may well be a
once off ailment but it might also be a sign of an
underlying chronic disease. As a general rule, frequently
or regularly recurring problems such as a cold should be
treated as a chronic disease. So in the lists below, some
ailments are listed under one category but the
accompanying explanantion may demonstrate how it relates
to or could just as easily be listed under the other
