Homoeopathy is a therapeutic medical system, which is based on the homoeopathic Law of Similars, also expressed as “Let Likes be Cured by Likes”. The word homoeopathy is derived from the Greek words homoios, meaning like, and pathos, meaning suffering. This law stems from the observation that substances that are capable of causing diseases of the mind or body in healthy people can be used in diluted form as remedies to treat a similar disorder in someone who is ill.
The key to successful homoeopathic treatment is identifying the similarity between the effects of the original substance in healthy people and the pattern of illness in the individual who is sick. It is the similarity that is essential. The homoeopathic method involves obtaining a complete and detailed description of the patient, the illness and its evolution. Specifically prepared and diluted medicinal substances are dispensed as potentised remedies to the patient.

THE HOMEOPATHIC APPROACH
Although well-trained Homoeopathic Practitioners acknowledge the limits of their own paradigm with respect to the cure of disease, no condition should be excluded from the ambit of Homoeopathy.
Homoeopathy is a complete medical system with which any medical condition in any human being of any age has the potential to be treated. Homoeopathic Practitioners are capable of supporting the conventional medical approach and working closely together with other medical and healthcare services to the best benefit of the patient.
The homoeopathic approach acknowledges the importance of individualisation. Homoeopathy is patient driven and caters for the specific needs unique to every patient’s experience of illness.
It is a holistic system that can take into account every aspect of the patient’s life and being, making it a therapeutic system that employs the body’s own healing potential to the benefit of the patient’s over-all health and well-being. At Dubai HTC we include lifestyle and nutritional considerations as a vital part of any treatment program.
The homoeopathic approach is safe and undoubtedly effective. This is proven not only by the growing world-wide support and interest of patients and health professionals, but also by ever increasing amount of research evidence being collected in support of the practice.
