    What is Homeopathy?

  • homeopathy is a gentle system of healing which works by stimulating the natural healing ability of the body.

  • homeopathic medicines are chosen to fit all the characteristics of the patient, thereby treating the person as a whole rather than just the presenting complaint.

  • there are no harmful side effects – a special process called potentisation refines the medicines to remove any toxic effects. It is therefore safe for everyone, including pregnant women, babies and young children.

  • homeopathic treatment can improve your overall health by strengthening your immune system thereby increasing your resistance to disease.

  • homeopathy is a complete system of medicine that treats mental, emotional and physical illness.

  • "Natural forces within us
    are the true healers of disease"


    What can be Treated?

    The number of conditions that homeopathy can help with is extremely far ranging. This is because the focus of treatment is on the person and how they are expressing their symptoms, rather than on the specific disease or complaint itself.

    The Homeopathic Consultation

    Your first consultation will last for 1 - 1½ hours. In this time a detailed case history is taken to build up a complete picture of your condition. This will include details of your past medical history, family medical history, and general lifestyle as well as other aspects of your life such as your emotional state, your sleep patterns and how you cope with stress.

    "It's far more important to know
    what person the disease has
    than what disease the person has"


    Follow up consultations are usually arranged at 4-6 week intervals depending on the nature of your complaint. These appointments last 30-45 minutes in which time the effectiveness of the prescribed remedy will be assessed and the appropriate action taken.
    For long term complaints I suggest that you allow for 3 sessions to assess benefit. I would expect that if homeopathy can help you, that we would see progression in the right direction within this time. Optimal or full resolution of the complaint however, may take longer and expectations with regard to this can be reviewed at each appointment.

    About Homeopathy. samuel

    The History of Homeopathy

    Homeopathy was developed by Dr Samuel Hahnemann (1755 -1843). History tells that Hahnemann was translating a scientific paper by William Cullen, a Scottish Physician, on his theory why Cinchona Bark (a source of quinine and a popular drug at the time) was successful in treating Malaria. Hahnemann disagreed entirely with his findings and decided to carry out some experiments of his own. It was from these initial experiments that he developed the homeopathic principles and the complete system of medicine that is used by homeopaths today.

    The Law of Similars

    The main principle behind homeopathic prescribing is the concept of ‘like cures like’. A substance that can CAUSE a set of symptoms in a healthy individual can be used to CURE a similar set of symptoms in a sick individual.
    For example, the substance coffee has the ability to stimulate the mind to the point of sleeplessness, amongst other symptoms. If somebody has a simlar kind of sleeplessness (and it wasn’t due to excess coffee) the remedy Coffea, which is made from coffee may help.

    About Homeopathy. remedy

    What are remedies made from?

    Homeopathic medicines, known as remedies, are made from a wide range of mostly naturally occuring substances. Most are made from plants or minerals, but some are made from animal substances such as ink of the cuttlefish.
    Each remedy undergoes a special process known as potentisation which involves diluting the substance concerned and then shaking it vigorously with impact. This process renders the substance non-toxic and more medicinally active.
    The remedies are usually dispensed in pillule form.

    About Homeopathy. Sulphur Crystals

    Sulphur Crystals
    Suphur is a mineral remedy useful for many skin conditions.

    About Homeopathy. Cuttlefish

    The remedy Sepia is made from ink of the cuttlefish.
    It is used for many conditions of hormonal imbalance.

    Homeopathy is a truly holistic therapy, and I believe that it offers as much, and more, now in the 21st Century, as it did when Hahnemann first brought about this healing art in the late 18th Century. As Hipprocates said "Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity". I believe homeopathy can help present this window of opportunity to a person to let life heal itself.

    Where appropriate or requested I also use Bach Flower Essences and have trained with Tessa Jordan on a Bach Flower Essence course specifically tailored for homeopaths. Flower Essences are particularly useful in cases where there is an emphasis on emotional symptoms and they can be used alongside homeopathic remedies or on their own.
