Leveraging the best of natural and modern medicine
Homeopathy is a natural, curative system of medicinal therapy, founded by Dr Samuel Hahnemann in the late eighteenth century and addresses the 3 spheres of disease i.e. the physical, emotional as well as mental factors that the patient may suffer as a result of the illness.
These medicines are effective in an acute and chronic disease state, are safe and mostly free of side effects. When prescribed by a qualified practitioner, they are also safe for pregnant women and babies.
Homeopathic medicines aim to cure, rather than merely alleviate or surpress the symptoms of disease. This practice makes use of integrative medicine which means that various treatment methods are incorporated after a clinical diagnosis (blood tests, X-rays, scopes etc.) has been made, to bring about cure.
Biopuncture is a treatment method where homeopathic medicines are injected either sub-cutaneously or intra-muscularly to stimulate the body’s own defense mechanisms to bring about cure. This can be done in acute, as well as in chronic diseases such as bronchitis, arthritis, tennis elbow, and whiplash to name but a few. It may also be administered to stimulate circulation, to support sport injuries, to detoxify the liver, lymphatic system or kidneys; or to support inflammatory processes.
Most of the medicines used at the Tygerberg Multicare Centre have been specially formulated for the practice and are carefully prescribed after a thorough history taking, clinical examination and diagnostic testing.
