    What is homeopathy?
    Homeopathy is a system of complementary medicine and is suitable for the whole family. In its most basic form, homeopathy is the treatment of a condition with a substance which, when taken by a healthy person, would produce symptoms similar to those shown in the person who is ill. Homeopathy views any symptoms as the body's natural reaction to combat the illness and looks to stimulate rather than suppress the reaction. Homeopathy therefore essentially assists the body to regain positive health by stimulating its own natural forces of recovery.
  • I bought Nelsons Sootha after my little one picked up a cough this winter. He had no problems taking the syrup (he even seemed to like it!) and I certainly think it eased his cough, my partner and I both noticed an improvement within a few days of him taking it! (Julia, Westbury-on-Trym)
