Homeopathy

Restore your energy and find natural relief from symptoms of illness and disease with homeopathy.

Homeopathy is a safe, effective holistic therapy used to treat various illnesses and diseases, whether they be acute or chronic. Acute disease processes may only need a few doses of a remedy, where as a chronic or long term disease may need more than one remedy over a longer period of time. All remedies are derived mainly from plants, animals, or minerals, and given in minimal doses. Homeopathy aims to get to the root of the issues and treat whole person rather than specific symptoms and is suitable for everyone.

While it does not replace medical assistance for serious illnesses and in many cases should complement rather than replace conventional treatments, it can help with:

  • Acute illnesses, e.g. coughs, colds, and stomach upsets
  • First aid, e.g. travel sickness, bruising, and shock
  • Insomnia and sleep issues
  • Depression and other mental health issues
  • Arthritis
  • Eczema
  • Menopausal disorders
  • Anxiety

About Homeopathy

It was over 200 years ago that the German physician Samuel Hahnemann began treating illnesses using homeopathic remedies. It offered a welcome and safe alternative to medical treatments of the time, such as bloodletting, purging, and emetics. In fact, when compared to traditional medicines of the time, homeopathy helped more people to recover from illnesses such as cholera, typhus, and influenza and killed fewer people.

Homeopathy works on the principle that ‘like cures like’, meaning homeopaths treat an illness with a substance that produces similar symptoms in a healthy person to those seen in the sick. For example, a person poisoned by eating Deadly Nightshade berries (Belladonna) develops a red flushed face, high fever with dry burning heat, and hallucinations. An unwell person presenting similar symptoms, perhaps from Scarlet Fever or tonsillitis, may receive Belladonna as a remedy. All treatments are personalised to the individual and based on a variety of factors including symptoms, mental and physical health, and lifestyle.

What to expect at consultations

During your first homeopathic consultation, we’ll sit down, I’ll take a detailed health and life history, and we’ll talk through your issues, needs, and concerns. It’ll last longer than follow-up sessions, perhaps up to two hours.

The more information I have, the better placed I am to find the appropriate remedy. Therefore, I like to get an idea of you as a person. Some of the things we may cover in our discussion include:

  • Current health concerns and symptoms
  • What makes your symptoms better/worse?
  • Lifestyle – diet, exercise etc.
  • Sleep
  • Energy levels
  • Mental health – stress, anxiety etc.

Once I have all the information, I’ll recommend a treatment in tablet, powder, or liquid form for you to take at home as prescribed by me. We’ll then meet again for a follow-up session to see how you are getting on, if the treatment has been a success or if we need to think about making some alterations.
