​What is homeopathy?

Homeopathy​ is a complete system of medicine that is entirely natural and can be applied successfully to any symptoms of illness or disease. It is a holistic system of healing that stimulates the natural processes of the body to heal itself. It looks at the whole person, their health and family history in order to find and treat the cause of ill-health. It treats the whole person on every level, physical, mental and emotional, instead of looking at symptoms separately. It recognises that symptoms are an expression of ill health but not the disease itself. Each person will express their symptoms uniquely and as such will require an individual prescription which helps the body to reach its optimal level of well-being.

What happens during a homeopathic consultation ?

​ ​Your homeopath will listen closely to you to understand many different aspects of your personality and state of health. Facts of your disease, descriptions of pain, emotional reactions and physical sensations are all relevant. Details of your medical history as well as that of your family will be taken. The more honest and open you are with your homeopath the better she/he will understand you and be able to prescribe the remedy that best fits your symptoms. Initial consultations take between 11/2 to 2 hours and follow up appointments take up to 1 hour.

Frequently asked questions

 

What kind of symptoms associated with diseases can be treated homeopathically?

Homeopathy is applicable to a broad range of symptoms related to certain states of ill health including acute inflammations, systemic imbalances, chronic degenerative diseases and mental/emotional disturbances.

 

Can homeopathic medicines be taken along with conventional medicine?

Yes they can be taken together safely. Many people who seek out homeopathic care are already taking conventional medicine and have a long term goal of reducing or eliminating the conventional medication. With proper remedies and treatment this is often possible.

 

Is it ok for children, pregnant women, elderly people or animals to take homeopathic remedies?

Absolutely. Homeopathy is a wonderful, gentle healing medicine appropriate for people of all ages and conditions. It is also extensively used for domestic pets and farm live stock.

 

Are there harmful side effects from taking a homeopathic remedy?

Since the substances are highly dilute, they do not contain significant amounts of the original substance from which they were made. Therefore they do not have the toxic effects associated with many conventional medications or other substances.

 

Why choose homeopathy?

As a Homeopath I like to deal with the body naturally and safely. Homeopathy uses remedies made from natural sources (plants, minerals etc) and it is my first choice to improve the wellbeing of myself and my family. It is also the choice of many others who may not have been able to find anything that helps long standing problems and just want to feel better.
Making the right choice on how to deal with ill health, whether it is for you or a member of your family, is as important today as it has ever been. It is therefore reassuring to know that Homeopathy is gentle, natural, safe and is used successfully by large numbers of people all over the world.
