Homeopathy is a complete system of natural medicine that was developed 200 years ago by German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. This system is based on the principle of Like cures like.

What does Like cures like mean? It means: If a substance can create a series of symptoms in a healthy individual, that same substance, is capable of curing the same symptoms in a sick person who experiences those symptoms if that substance is prepared based on homeopathic principles.

For example: When a person slices an onion, the experience is observed as watery and burning eyes, runny nose accompanied by sneezing. At the same time if a person suffers from hay fever, the symptoms can be presented as watery and burning eyes, runny nose and sneezing. Many hay fever sufferers have found a relief from the mentioned symptoms by taking a homeopathic remedy that is made from red onion also known as Allium Cepa.

It is important to note that in homeopathy the combination of peculiar, distinctive and unique symptoms are more important than common symptoms that are specified by the diagnosis. For example: ten people with migraine can experience different combination of symptoms, and therefore each person might require a different homeopathic remedy that can relieve the individual’s migraine pains.

Osteopathy was founded by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still. Dr. Still believed that “The root of illness lies in the musculoskeletal system and the problems in this system can cause other illnesses.” He claimed that, a hands on manipulation of the musculoskeletal system can be effective in cure through body’s own healing ability.

Osteopathy is a manual method of healing which focuses on the relationship between structural and functional systems of the body. Osteopathic principles state that ” body has the ability to heal itself.”

Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) or Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT), consists of a series of techniques that distinguishes from Osteopathic physicians’ method of work. Osteopathic Practitioners diagnose and treat somatic dysfunction by manipulating the bones and muscles.

The process entails gentle palpating and touching of the tissues and systems under, not only superficial but deep examination within the body.

When the tissue qualities are disturbed by factors such as congestion, dehydration, scarring, stiffness, loss of resilience and motility, Osteopathic manual practitioners can determine by sensing these qualities and know what needs an immediate attention.

At Avicenna Holistic Centre, our Osteopathic Practitioners can answer your questions in more detail.
