Homeopathy is a complete therapeutic system that has been in use around the world ever since German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755–1843) developed it in the early 1800s.

Hahnemann rediscovered and tested an ancient principle, called the Law of Similars, and employed his findings as the foundation for a healing modality that he named homeopathy.
The Law of Similars states that if a substance can cause particular symptoms in a healthy person, it will cure those same symptoms in people who are ill. In homeopathy, medicines are selected for the individual person according to the Law of Similars, in addition to a holistic view of their needs.
“Less is more” is one of the principles that homeopathy truly brings to life. Homeopathic medicines are highly diluted and are created using a method called potentization that involves alternately diluting and vigorously shaking the medicinal preparation. In the United States, homeopathic medicines are FDA regulated and are sold over the counter in health food stores, pharmacies, and by mail order. However, they act quite differently from regular medicines.
Rather than forcing chemical changes upon the body, homeopathic medicines catalyze the body’s self-healing abilities—without side effects and without danger of overdose, toxicity, or drug interactions.
Homeopathy can be used for ailments of all kinds, in both people and animals. It is safe for everyone to use, including babies, pregnant women, the elderly, and the very sensitive. Unfortunately, the word “homeopathy” is sometimes misused to mean any natural or holistic therapy. While homeopathy is a natural and holistic therapy, it is a distinct system of medicine in its own right. Indeed, homeopathy is one of many natural complementary and alternative therapies, including, for example, herbal medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, water therapies, vitamin and mineral supplements, and so on. Homeopathy is distinct and different from all of these other modalities, however, because it is the only one that employs the Law of Similars and potentized medicines.
Homeopathy is often called an “energy” medicine because potentized remedies address the vital force (the energy that animates the living organism), and when the vital force is healthy, it produces healthy functioning throughout the organism. Homeopathy can be used for home care as well as in professional settings. Most people find it easy to learn homeopathic self-care for acute and first aid purposes.
With a little bit of training, a book or two, and a home remedy kit, you can effectively address colds and the flu, sprains and strains, minor injuries, and other ailments that don’t necessarily need a doctor’s care.
However, it takes more knowledge to address chronic ailments. In the hands of a trained professional like Shahin Afnan D.I.Hom, homeopathy can ease the symptoms of a wide variety of conditions that we might otherwise feel we “just have to live with.”
Shahin says: ‘When you receive homeopathic treatment, you will find that as your body regains balance, you will no longer need to refill your prescriptions and your general level of health will improve to the point where you no longer suffer with every virus that crosses your path. I’m here to help you achieve freedom. May you be safe, may you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be at ease.

“Shahin has successfully treated me for two different conditions. I first sought Shahin’s help for chronic fatigue, hypothyroidism and a slew of other complaints. She listened to my symptoms, asked many questions and found me a remedy (constitutional) that made a profound difference right away.
I have worked with other homeopathic practitioners over the years and have never found results before with the first remedy prescribed! It often took additional office visits/consultations to get to the right remedy.
The second time that Shahin treated me was right before I was leaving for vacation and had symptoms of a full blown sinus infection. Again, the first remedy that Shahin suggested was successful.
I have full confidence in Shahin’s ability to hone in on symptoms and to find the correct remedy. She uses her professional knowledge and expertise as well as her keen sense of intuition.” Amy H., Shaker Heights, Ohio
Homeopathy changed Shahin’s life when she was successfully treated for asthma and allergies in England. “I would enthuse about this amazing form of healing to friends and relatives. It took me many more years to believe this was something I could actually study for myself in order to bring this wonderful healing to others. I went on to study Classical Homeopathy and graduated from the British Institute of Homeopathy in December 2010.”
I also have a medical background as an Occupational Therapist with over twenty years experience as a health care practitioner in both England and USA. In this capacity I have worked with patients of all ages suffering with mental health problems, physical disabilities or recovering from major surgery.
