About Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a well recognised and established form of complementary healthcare

It is a gentle, safe and non-toxic form of healthcare that can be seen to help so many conditions and health states without side effects i.e. skin conditions, infertility, pregnancy, menopause and other menstrual aggravations, migraines, hayfever, respiratory problems, sinus complaints, depression, anxiety, phobias, grief, poor sleep patterns, joint and muscle complaints and digestive complaints.

This is due to its careful consideration of the patient as a whole.

Homeopathy is beneficial for patients of any age and can be used during and after pregnancy and childbirth. It can also be used alongside conventional medicine from your GP.

As well as specialising in Women’s health, I have great interest in supporting children with Autism and the many different Spectrum disorders, which usually need such individual attention and can be helped so much with the use of Homeopathic remedies.

How Homeopathy works

Homeopathy is an alternative method of healthcare that is based on the ancient principle of “like cures like”. This means you give a little bit of what the patient is suffering, in a remedy form, and it will stimulate the body system to re-balance itself or regain “homeostasis” and the symptoms will ease. For example, giving the homeopathic remedy Allium cepa, from the onion family, to a patient with hayfever or perhaps cold symptoms of streaming, burning, watery eyes, very runny nose, may offer great relief.

Remedies are generally made from natural matters, such as plants, and minerals. They can be given in pillule, powder or liquid form and contain no chemicals, bulking agents or additives.

Why see a Homepath?

A homeopathic appointment gives you time and a unique understanding between patient and practitioner. First consultations can last up to one hour or more and further “follow up” appointments at least half an hour.

​A homeopath works holistically, taking the patient’s “whole” case, enabling her/him to gain a mental, physical and emotional picture of their patient.

In my experience, attending to one’s health with homeopathy brings about a very clear understanding of how our own individual bodies are currently behaving or reacting and this awareness alone can initiate the confidence in working with ourselves to get better. I can only otherwise describe my own experience as “everything making more sense” when I saw a homeopath.
