What are the medicines and how are they prescribed?

Homeopathic medicines are made from plants, minerals, chemicals, animal material, or even from scheduled prescription medicines. Herbal remedies form part of Homeopathic medicines, but our medicines are not only confined to those of Herbal remedies which includes all forms of natural medicine, as indicated above. These substances are prepared according to the process described in the Homeopathic pharmacopoeia (the official manufacturing manual). Most Homeopathic medicines are registered with the Medicines Control Council of South Africa.

The key to successful Homeopathic 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 this similarity that is essential. The Homeopathic method involves an exceptionally complete and detailed clinical picture of the patient, the illness and its evolution, combined with the correct choice of similar remedy.

Homeopathic medicines are prescribed in the form of tablets, capsules, pillules, granules, powders, liquid drops, eye, nose and ear drops, ointments, gels, creams, injectable or drinkable ampoules and sprays.
