The Homeopathic Approach to Stress

Homeopathy is an alternative approach to health and wellness. Its underlying principles are Homeopathic treatment is directed at the whole person. A well-selected homeopathic remedy can gently stimulate the natural healing forces of the body to bring about health, taking into consideration the individual’s spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

An experienced homeopath always assesses the individual as both a whole and as a sum of individual parts to see how each reacts to various stress catalysts. They decipher the individual’s unique approach to stress and match the underlying cause of the stress itself with a corresponding homeopathic remedy. This in turn reduces the frequency and severity of all physical, emotional, and mental symptoms caused by stress.

The homeopathic approach to stress also educates the individual on their own internal processes, guiding them to effectively observe their own biorhythms, mental processes, and habitual behavioural patterns. Similar to mediation, the individual is guided to observe the underlying causes of their thoughts and emotions, supporting the individual in developing an awareness of stress-causing behavioral patterns that were previously being acted out unconsciously.
