Using a system developed by French homeopath and medical doctor Leon Vannier, homeopaths utilise the ‘drainage’ method to stimulate the organs of elimination and detoxify the body. After a thorough health assessment, homeopaths identify medicines that are specifically indicated for each person based on their unique symptoms of disease or toxicity. Utilising naturally occurring substances which are specially prepared into homeopathic potencies, the drainage method may be used as a stand-alone therapy when toxicity is indicated, at the start of a course of treatment to support the body’s move toward health, or during a course of treatment when symptoms indicate a need for greater detoxification.
