About the Faculty of Homeopathy
Founded in 1844 and incorporated by the Act of Parliament in 1950, Homeopathy faculty is one of the longest established homoeopathic organizations in the world. The faculty has long been recognized as a major membership organization for statically regulated health professionals who integrate homoeopathy within their practice. The mission statement of the faculty is to “promote and support the highest standards of practice, education and research in homoeopathy”.
The faculty is an international and multi-disciplinary organization, which adopts a wide range of healthcare professionals. Faculty offers an internationally recognized training pathway for doctors, dentists, pharmacists, veterinary surgeons, nurses and other legally regulated health professionals in homoeopathy. Faculty members are medical professionals who are qualified and trained in both conventional medicine and homoeopathic medicine. This gives them a unique perspective on health care and allows them to effectively integrate these different disciplines.
In addition to membership and academic activities, other major areas of faculty include the publication of work, promotion, quality assurance and international research journal Homeopathy.
Homoeopathy is a natural form of therapy that is used by 200 million people worldwide for both intense and chronic conditions. It is based on the principle of dealing with “as you wish”. That is, a substance that causes symptoms when taking in large doses can be used in small amounts to treat those symptoms.
For example, drinking too much coffee can not cause sleepiness and agitation. According to this principle, when homoeopathic medicine is made, it can be used to treat people with these symptoms. However, homoeopathic drugs use the minimum dose of active substances, resulting in the medicines being non-toxic.
Homoeopathy should be seen as a supplementary treatment rather than the option of conventional medicine. Despite the differences in attitude, homoeopathic and traditional remedies can work very well together and are often used as part of an integrated approach. Consulting a medical doctor trained in homoeopathy gives patients more treatment options. www.facultyofhomeopathy.org
