Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine which is extremely effective. When the correct remedy is taken, results can be rapid, complete and permanent. Homeopathy treats all the symptoms as one, which in practical terms means that it addresses the cause, not the symptoms. This often means that symptoms tackled with Homeopathy do not recur. Homeopathy is natural. Homeopathic remedies are normally based on natural ingredients and they work in harmony with your immune system, unlike some conventional medicines which suppress the immune system. Therefore homeopathic remedies are not addictive. Prescribing the right homeopathic remedy takes a little more time and patience than conventional medicine. Exactly the right remedy needs to be taken for your symptoms. There is no such thing as a standard homeopathic remedy. The remedy you take has to be matched to your particular symptom - where it occurs, what brings it on, what type of pain it is, what aggravates it, what makes it feel worse, your state of mind and what other symptoms you experience. The benefits and success is fueled by several factors: • completely safe • rapid, complete and permanent • treats all the symptoms as one, which in practical terms means that it addresses the cause, not the symptoms • babies and pregnant women can use Homeopathy without the danger of side effects • Homeopathic remedies are not addictive and without the danger of side effects • Improves the physical and psychonomic health system
Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin, to various depths at strategic points on your body. As many as a dozen needles may need to be placed for each treatment. Once the needles are inserted, they're usually left in place for five to 20 minutes, depending on the symptoms of each individual patient. The traditional Chinese theory behind acupuncture as medical treatment is very different from that of Western medicine. In traditional Chinese medicine, health results form a harmonious balance between the complementary extremes (yin and yang) of the life force known as qi or chi. Qi is believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. These meridians and the energy flow are accessible through more than 350 acupuncture points. Illness results from an imbalance of the forces. By inserting needles into these points in various combinations, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will rebalance. Many western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. This stimulation appears to boost the activity of your body's natural painkillers and increase blood flow. Apart from the Departments and their doctors mentioned above, Cretan Medicare collaborates with specialists like gynecologists, neurologists, psychologists and ear/nose/throat specialists at state and private practice in order to provide full treatment to all our patients' needs.
