What is homeopathy and phytotherapy
Homeopathic and herbal medicine treatment is intrinsically holistic and highly individualised. The whole person's mind and body are taken into account when tailor-making a treatment programme for a patient. The aim of therapy is to stimulate the body's own self-healing capabilities.
In South Africa, homeopaths and phytotherapists are medically trained primary-contact physicians who are able to diagnose and treat (if appropriate) illness and deficiencies in human beings. Outside of South Africa, phytotherapists are known as medical herbalists. All South African-trained homeopaths have a Master's degree in Homeopathy and have undergone a 5-year fulltime training and a 1 year internship. Practitioners must register with and are controlled by the Allied Health Professions Council of South Africa.
