Homoeopathy is a system of holistic medicine that is now over two hundred years old. It was founded by the German physician and chemist, Dr Samuel Hahnemann in the late 18th century, yet its reputation and stature has been growing exponentially, both nationally and internationally, over the last few years. The homoeopathic approach is to not only treat an individual for their physical complaints – but to also consider their mental and emotional states as pivotal components in the healing and treatment process as well. Homoeopathic treatment differs from the more conventional forms of medicine in that it is highly individualized and tailored to suit each patient’s particular health needs. In this way, homoeopathy is a medical approach that respects the wisdom of the body.
In keeping with the increased demand for healthcare, and the provision of competent homoeopathic practitioners, formalized homoeopathic education has become a priority. In South Africa, formalized homoeopathic educational standards are closely aligned with those of medicine, and are recognized as an education of excellence internationally. Homoeopathy is a legally recognized profession and is becoming an increasingly important part of the South African healthcare provision. Homoeopathic physicians are registered with a statutory body, the Allied Health Professions Council, and their activities are closely monitored by a professional board.
This treatment is widely regarded to be safe, and can potentially be very effective in treating the new strains of disease which are spreading widely in the 21st century. As a primary-contact practitioner, a homoeopath manages all aspects of patient healthcare, diagnosis, treatment and management, including referral and communication with other healthcare professions and institutions.
