Homeopathy is a system of medicine that gently stimulates your body to heal itself. Remedies act as a catalyst, working with your body. Drugs enforce change on your body: homeopathic remedies remind your body what it can do better.
Homeopathy is about treating the whole person rather than the parts that don't work. It is a completely different way of viewing health and disease. Having evaluated your case, I prescribe a remedy that has been proven to produce - in healthy people - symptoms similar to those experienced by you. Remedies work to gently clarify - and address - your current obstacle(s) to health.Often, your susceptibility (the underlying cause of illness) is identified and treated to provide you with a long-term solution.
Homeopathy: a medicine for the 21st Century
The concept of Homeopathy was known in the days of Paracelsus but it was Dr Samuel Hahnemann, a brilliant and respected German medic, that tested and formulated the system practised today. His findings - over 200 years ago - are as relevant today as they were then.Medical science has developed sophisticated diagnostics and work to identify pathogens and name diseases but the underlying nature of disease has not changed, just presents in a different way.
Is it safe?
Homeopathic remedies contain minimal amounts of the original substance which are then 'potentised', i.e. diluted and succussed. This process captures the remedies' therapeutic properties and ensures they are devoid of toxic effects.
Homeopathy can be taken alongside conventional medicine. Indeed, many patients use Homeopathy to minimise side effects of their conventional medication.
But isn't it just placebo?
Despite what the media report, this quite simply is untrue. Babies and animals respond to homeopathic treatment beautifully and know nothing of the placebo effect. What is hotly debated is how Homeopathy works. This is a question being researched by world-class scientists and a credible answer is forthcoming. Watch this space!
What can it treat?
Homeopathy treats you. Your unique experience and symptoms are what I work with - even those vague, undiagnosable symptoms and syndromes.
