Homeopathic medicines are available for a wide range of conditions, from acute to chronic (longstanding). Minor aliments and for first aid use can be treated easily by yourself. If the symptoms persist, or are severe you must seek the advice of your homeopath physician.
As we are all so very different in our mental and physical makeup it is reasonable to expect that our reaction to an illness will also be different and individual. Illnesses which occurred many years previously, sometimes in childhood or even in our parents and grandparents, can often lead to areas of weakness in our constitution and a skilled homeopath may spend some time in tracing and removing these defects by the use of the correct homeopathic medicine.
