What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine, which stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities. It is able to achieve this because it recognises that all symptoms of illness are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the patient who needs the treatment and not just the symptoms.
According to World Health Organisation, Homeopathy is the fastest-growing and second most widely used system of medicine in the world, being used for over 200 years.
Homeopathy helps stimulate the body’s own healing response using natural, safe and effective homeopathic remedies, made from minute quantities of substances such as plants and minerals that undergo a special process of dilution and potentisation.
You will be reassured to know that Royalty throughout the world have been using homeopathy as their main, and many times, only, method of healing since the 18th Century (ever wondered why Royalty lives to a ripe old age!). In fact until the 1950’s, Homeopathy was seen as an upper class privilege in the developed world and limited to only the wealthy and aristocracy.
Here is a brief history of Homeopathy treating Royalty from the 18th Century:
Homeopathic medicine is safe, non-toxic and can be taken alongside medication from your Doctor. It can be used effectively and safely by everyone; during pregnancy, childbirth and from new born babies, children, adults to the elderly, and even at end of life/terminal illness stages. The medicines are mostly supplied in pill form and are pleasant and easy to take and sometimes may also be in liquid form where needed.
Free Mini Consultation
I offer an initial 15 minute free mini consultation with me in person or by telephone. This gives you an opportunity to discuss your health situation and to ask me any questions you may have before booking a treatment, helping you to decide which therapy is best suited to you and your individual needs.
Your Initial Consultation
In homeopathy, we treat you, the patient, not the “disease” with which you may be labelled…therefore we pay extra time and attention to all the symptoms and feelings you are experiencing and have been experiencing, with a view to heal you completely over time.
This is why your homeopathic prescription has “remedies” and not just medicines; our aim is to help your body remedy itself and restore your health using the vital energy that is inside each and every one of us. Your first appointment will take about one hour, during which you will be asked detailed questions about yourself, your condition, medical and family history. A complete picture is taken of your state of health, considering personality traits, lifestyle, environmental factors, major life events, emotional state, sleep patterns and a history of disease patterns within your family. After careful consideration, you will be given a prescription that most closely matches your unique pattern of symptoms, and advice on how to take it. Sometimes you will receive your remedy right after your consultation, but mostly they will follow a day or so later as each prescription is tailor made to your unique symptom picture (this is why we ask so many questions).
With acute illness, homeopathic treatment can be rapid and effective after one appointment. Other chronic conditions may take longer to improve requiring several appointments, depending on the length and severity of the condition.
Follow up Consultations are usually 30 minutes long and are every four to six weeks until you improve and your vitality is restored. Acute consultations (short term illness) by telephone are 15 minutes.
