Simple, Safe, Effective
What is Homeopathy
The miracle of Homeopathy. I qualified as a Homeopath in 2010 and even now, the abilities of Homeopathic Remedies to heal and bring the body, mind and emotions back in balance, still astounds me. The little Homeopathic tablets look like they will have no effect at all, but this is not the case. A well chosen remedy can instigate an enormous and positive shift in your health. Can be useful in both chronic and acute health conditions.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that has been used for over 200 years. Homeopathy is safe, gentle and effective. It works on a few fundamental principles that help to encourage the body’s natural ability to heal.
A holistic therapy which is subtle, non-invasive and with no detrimental side effects. Homeopathy can help aleviate the symptoms of many illnesses and ailments, restoring health and vitality for the mind, body and soul.
Your treatment will consist of a Homeopathic Consultation, where we will look at your symptoms and explore the causation of these symptoms, these can be physical, mental or emotional, or a combination of all three.
From this information, a homeopathic remedy is chosen, to help stimulate your body to regain balance and equilibrium. The remedy you need may be quite apparent and I will prescribe at the end of the consultation, however, if your case is indepth, then sometimes I need to look more carefully at the presenting symptoms and may have to send you the remedy in the next couple of days . Homeopathic remedies are usually prescribed in the form of little tablets or pilules. They are really easy to take and dissolve in your mouth, so no large pills to swallow. Homeopathy can nearly always be taken in conjunction with any other medicine you may be taking without having any detrimental effects. The beauty of Homeopathy is that it aims to remove the cause of your symptoms rather than supressing the symptoms.
Adult Initial Consultation 90 mins
Although the principals of Homeopathy are simple, remedy choice is very specific, therefore during a consultation an indepth case history is taken. During this we look at the symptoms you are presenting and explore the trigger or reason for these symptoms, these can be emotional, mental, physical or spiritual, or a combination of any of these. Based on the information given, a homeopathic prescription is then ascertained to try to aleviate the symptoms you are experiencing and restore health and vitality to your optimum level.
Adult Follow-up Consultation 60 mins
Sometimes, especially in acute cases, only one Homeopathic consultation is required. However, for in-depth or chronic situations, then one or more follow up consultations may be required. It will be very similar to the intial consultation in nature, again exploring your symptoms, noting any changes since the last homeopathic consultation and looking at further homeopathic prescriptions that may be needed.
Child Initial Consultation 60 mins
Children in general respond extremely well to Homeopathic medicines and can be used to treat a variety of problems, including physical, such as hay fever, coughs and colds, eczema, digestion problems, skin problems and childhood illneses such as chicken pox, mumps and measles. Mental and emotional problems can also be helped with homeopathy, especially in todays society where confidence, self esteem and self worth seem to be diminished in the young.
Child Follow Up Consultation 40 mins
As with adults, sometimes a follow-up consultation is required for more deep-rooted problems. Again, we will look at any changes since the last consultation and any new symptoms that may have developed.
Sometimes it is difficult to come to me, so I do offer a telephone consultation service. This is useful for acute conditions such as coughs and colds, or recent injuries. During the telephone consutation, I will try to ascertain the main symptoms, prescribe on those and then send the remedy to you by post. Telephone consultations are very suitable if you are unable to get to me for any reason. I will prescribe a homeopathic remedy from the consultation and send to you by first class post.
Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine used worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions. It is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’ – in other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms it causes if it was taken in large amounts.
For example, the Homeopathic medicine Allium Cepa is derived from highly diluting a part of a red onion. As we know an onion can cause symtpoms such as sore, itcy eyes. Allium Cepa in homeopathic form may help relieve the symptoms of sore, itchy eyes.
During a Homeopathic consultation, you will be asked a variety of questions about not only the symptoms you are presenting but also you as individual. This is to enable me to find the correct remedy for you, each person is unique and not one remedy fits all.
Homeopathic remedies are very small and easy to take, usually given in tablet form but sometimes can be in liquid.
As with all Complementary Therapies, sometimes one can experience a healing crisis after a treatment or a homeopathic remedy. This is the bodies own defence system responding to the therapy and throwing out the symptoms. For example, if someone suffers from eczema, their symptoms may appear worse for a few days as the body is trying to heal within. Complementary therapies do not work like allopathic medicine, which tends to hide the symptom without dealing with the cause. So a healing crisis is not a side effect, it is a direct effect of the body working to get better.
