What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathic medicine is a type of treatment which is gentle yet effective. It works with your body to stimulate healing. The medicines are called remedies and they usually come in the form of very small white pills. Homeopathic remedies are derived from plants, minerals and other naturally occurring substances. They are prepared by a unique, highly controlled process of dilutions which renders them non toxic. The homeopathic remedy does not directly treat a symptom or condition but instead it helps to initiate the process by which a person heals him or herself.

Homeopathy has been used for over 200 years, since it was first developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann and it is still used all over the world today. The law of similar is the basic principle of homeopathy which is to treat like with like. A remedy is chosen which matches as closely as possible your individual symptoms which are discussed during your consultation.

The Consultation

The initial consultation will take about 1½ hours and the follow up consultation usually takes about 45 minutes. During this time I would like to explore your symptoms. As a homeopath, I need to understand as fully as possible who you are as an individual as this will help to identify which remedy would be most suited to you. Your medical history and life experience are important to your case as well as your family medical history. You will be asked to describe your symptoms in your own words as fully as possible. Useful information for me includes, what makes your symptom better or worse, how you feel at particular times of the day, seasons and activities that make you feel better or worse.

Can Homeopathy Help you?

Homeopathy involves looking at the whole of a person, including physical, mental and emotional symptoms. They are all equally important as this is the way that the body expresses its imbalance. These symptoms are unique to each patient.

Homeopathy works effectively for a wide range of acute and chronic problems including infectious diseases, allergies, gynaecological difficulties, digestive problems, behavioural problems and headaches.

As a homeopath I am interested in your symptoms rather than treating a named disease. Homeopathy can help in relieving so many different symptoms that it would be impossible to list everything here. The remedies help to stimulate the body to heal itself and can be used at every stage of a person’s life, being suitable for babies to the elderly.
