Welcome to what is probably a brand new experience for you. Homeopathy is unlike anything you have tried before.
Oftentimes people assume that homeopathy is like naturopathy, herbal medicine, vitamin therapy, or like some other alternative healthcare system or even beauty therapy and colonic irrigation!! Homeopathy is different than all these modalities and No! Homeopathy has nothing, nothing at all to do with beauty therapy or colonic irrigation.
Homeopathy is a branch of medicine and it is a therapeutic medical method that works by using a small dose of a substance to help stimulate the body's healing forces.
Unfortunately the word homeopathy has the prefix “home” in it and it gives the impression that homeopathy is synonymous with home remedies, food supplements, vitamins and herbs. In fact, homeopathy does not incorporate any of these modalities.
Homeopathy is derived from the Greek word “homeo” meaning like or similar and “pathos” meaning pathology or illness. So the literal meaning of homeopathy is similar illness. This means that a homeopathic medicine is administered based upon its ability to mimic the disease state, thereby stimulating the body to heal itself.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that is fundamentally different from conventional (allopathic) medicine. Whereas allopathic medicine focuses on suppression of symptoms, homeopathy seeks to correct the underlying imbalance that caused the symptoms in the first place. Homeopathy achieves this by strengthening the body's own defenses, thereby allowing the body to heal itself.
Homeopathy has been in worldwide use for over 200 years. Homeopathy treats each person as a unique individual with the aim of stimulating their own healing ability. A homeopath selects the most appropriate medicine based on the individual's specific symptoms and personal level of health.
Homeopathy had its beginning in eighteenth century Germany, with Samuel Hahnemann, a physician and scholar whose practice included aristocracy and royalty. Disappointed in the results of the medicine that he and his colleagues were then using, Hahnemann left his prominent practice. He went on to discover a profound natural law, the Law of Similars, which became the foundation for homeopathy. The Law of Similars asserts that any substance which can cause symptoms when given to a healthy person can help to heal those who are experiencing similar symptoms when given in a very minute amount.
Homeopathy recognises the intimate connection between the mind and body. Homeopathic therapy always takes into account the person's unique hereditary background, physical, and emotional aspects instead of isolated symptoms of the body. It then aims to strengthen the individual so that their own vital force, the body's innate intelligence and energetic defense mechanism, is stimulated by individualised homeopathic remedies to bring about balance and health. Because of the highly individualised approach to each person and his/her condition, a partnership between the homeopathic consultant and the client is essential. I am committed to creating this partnership with every client I work with.
Homeopathy is a safe and effective system of healing, used by an estimated 500 million people worldwide. The World Health Organisation cites homeopathy as the second most widely used form of medical therapy in the world and as one of the systems of healthcare that should be integrated worldwide with conventional medicine in order to provide adequate care.
Although it is most popular in India and South America, over thirty million people in Europe, and millions of others around the world, also benefit from using Homeopathy.
A breakthrough report by the Swiss government in 2012 validated that homeopathy is effective and that homeopathy consultations should be reimbursed by Switzerland's national health insurance program. The interior ministry of Switzerland has announced plans to give five complementary therapies including homeopathy the same status as conventional medicine.
Homeopathic remedies are used safely for people in all stages of life including infants, children, pregnant women and the elderly. Two hundred years of clinical experience has demonstrated the effectiveness of these remedies. Homeopathic remedies are made in accordance with the processes described in the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United Kingdom. The remedies are prepared from substances such as plants, minerals, or other materials which are repeatedly diluted and shaken vigorously which results in leaving only the energetic imprint of the substance.
I am a registered and accredited homeopath with 20 years experience of using homeopathy to rehabilitate and maintain the health and well being of my family, friends, patients (including pets). Homeopathy is my treatment of choice as I have found it to be safe and effective in a variety of acute and chronic conditions, whether physical or emotional.
To present date my two growing children, now teenagers, have not yet needed a single prescription from their GP or any over the counter medicines.
Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine. Remedies are derived from natural sources and as a way of stimulating the "immune system" or the vital force as, as a type of "therapy of the immune system". It works by stimulating one's own immune system or vital energy and personal healing ability. Homeopathic remedies are well suited to vulnerable groups such as babies, children, the elderly, and can be safely used during preconception, pregnancy or the menopause.
Homeopathy is non-toxic, safe, effective and suitable for all age groups, including women during pregnancy. Both, patients with acute and chronic conditions have benefited from homeopathic treatment. Remedies can act fast in some conditions whilst others require more consistent treatment. The aim is to improve your health and to maintain lasting well-being. Homeopathic remedies can be taken alongside medications prescribed by your doctor.
I qualified as a professional homeopath in 1999 at London College of Classical Homeopathy and have been practising Classical Homeopathy for 20 years. For this time period, I have treated people of different ages and conditions. My objective has always been to deliver homeopathic care centered around the patient and a high level of care using Classical Homeopathy. Homeopathic prescribing and treatment is a highly individualised approach to each person and his/her condition, a partnership between the homeopathic consultant and the client is essential. I am committed to creating this partnership with every client I work with.
Homeopathy treats individuals, not conditions. My patients contact me with a wide range of health problems and concerns. Some of the most common are: Post Natal Depression, Allergies, Hay fever, Pregnancy and Labour, Emotional trauma, Skin conditions, Anxiety, Chronic Cough, Migraines, Asthma, Behavioural and Developmental problems, Tonsillitis, Sinusitis, Cystitis, IBS, Chronic constipation, Diarrhoea and many other chronic complaints as well as acute conditions: Sprains, Strains, penetrating wounds, abscesses, bee stings, bumps after falling, chronic effects of head injuries etc, etc.
I have also treated people with: Hashimoto's disease, Polycistic Ovary Syndrome, ME, Depression, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Infertility to name a few other conditions. As a mum of two children and a former dental surgeon specialised in children, I have developed a specific interest in children's health, whether baby, toddler or teen.
Many people attend my clinic to manage symptoms of long term chronic conditions. Others come with acute complaints such as childhood diseases and accidents: mumps, measles, rubella, sprains, strains, head bumps, etc . I have considerable experience in treating people with symptoms that are medically unexplained. When tests and scans have ruled out possible diagnoses and treatments, but symptoms persist, I have found homeopathic remedies to be helpful. Many of my patients are children and it is very heartwarming and very fulfilling to help someone grow up happy and healthy.
Homeopathy looks at the patient through a holistic way including their mind, body and spirit, their life circumstances and situation.
My objective is to to fully understand how the symptoms of patients are affecting them and suggest the homeopathic remedy best suited for them as individuals. Ttreat people in a holistic way to improve their well being is my commitment, therefore working with each patient to find the most effective route to optimum personal health and well being using a well established system of classical homeopathic philosophy and remedies. Homeopathy can be used alongside other forms of medical treatment. All consultations are fully confidential.
