Homoeopathy is a safe, gentle, inexpensive and effective form of energetic medicine.
The ancient Egyptians first conceived the healing principle “like cures like”. This became known as the “ law of similars” .
This concept was developed into a complete system of natural medicine by a Dr Samuel Hahnemann over 200 years ago.
A person’s symptoms are matched to one of over 4,000 remedies, making this a highly individualised healing system. Minute doses of a a remedy made from plant, animal or minerals which now includes the latest homoeopathic crystal remedies are used to treat a wide range of both physical and emotional problems.

A careful and detailed medical history is taken and of special interest is the symptoms a person is experiencing. It is these individual symptoms that help guide the selection of the correct remedy.
The remedy is chosen because it has displayed similar symptoms to your complaint. As an example The red onion ( Allium Cepa) in crude forms causes watery eyes and sneezing in a homoeopathic form it can treat just these symptoms of associated with hay fever and allergies.
The remedy that is chosen will vary with each case depending on the symptoms. the person is displaying.

What are the Gemstone or Crystal Homoeopathic remedies and how do they work ?
Whether we are experiencing just physical symptoms or emotional or both it is an opportunity to discover what needs to be healed within us.
Our life force is energy and when this energy is flowing freely we are in harmony with our mind and body and soul. We feel happy, energetic and have a life direction and purpose.When energy is not flowing freely we will feel all sorts of physical and emotional symptoms such as insomnia, lack of energy, digestive problems, aches and pains from tension, stress overload, sadness, and anger.
The list of symptoms can be long and varied.Each of these symptoms express a general lack of free flowing vitality in a life force but you will have symptoms that are very specific to you. Your symptoms won’t always be the same as another persons. So you will need a specific solution that addresses the cause of your energy blockage.
The crystal remedies are made into an energetic form, which is both gentle, safe and enables us to remove any blockage of our life force. The crystal remedies take us on a journey of healing and discovery helping us to heal deep seated emotional and health issues.
Dreams allow us to directly communicate in an uncensored way with our subconscious. When we take note of our dreams and the information they are relaying to us we are able to realise what it is in us that needs to be healed. The Crystal remedies often promote vivid dreams and help bring to light this information, which allows healing to take place.
