Homeopathy


Holistic, non-toxic, safe, gentle, sustainable

So what is Homeopathy ?

Homeopathy is a system of complementary, natural and energetic medicine.
We use remedies as a gentle stimulus to your body for self-healing.
The word Homeopathy comes from two Greek words, “homoios” and “pathos” meaning “similar suffering.” One of the fundamental Homeopathic principles is “Like cures like” or the Law of Similars. This idea dates back to Hippocrates (c 460 – 370 BC) and was used in Ancient Eygyptian and Greek medicine.
It means if a substance can make you ill in large amounts then smaller, specially prepared doses, can help you get well.
 
For example:
 
  • Coffee is a stimulant and can make us more energised, buzzing and stay awake longer. It can also cause insomnia by making us over-excited and wound up. Homeopathically prepared Coffea is one remedy we could use for sleep problems.
  • Cutting onions can cause your eyes to stream with watery tears and your nose to feel raw with a burning discharge. You may find it difficult to think or concentrate well –  like having a bad cold or some kinds of hay fever.  Allium – cepa, or Red Onion, is a remedy that might help you with those symptoms.

History

Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician (1755 – 1843), created the system of medicine we call Homeopathy.
As a doctor he was shocked by the harshness of many medical treatments, so he looked at ways to reduce toxic and damaging side effects. He observed that some drugs had similar symptoms to the illnesses they were used to treat, and this intrigued him. So he began to experiment on himself and with students, testing increasingly diluted medicines and observing the effects on healthy volunteers.
 
The more he reduced and diluted the substances, the more effective the medicines became. He continued to test, observe and document his research.
These scientific findings and experiences became the foundations of Homeopathy’s philosophy and practice.  So Homeopathy has over two hundred years of observation, exploration and clinical experience.
 
Millions of people worldwide now use Homeopathy.

What are the remedies? What do I take?

The remedies come from a range of sources in nature and the world around us: from many different plants, minerals, animals and elements, all kinds of interesting things.

Each source material is specially prepared, highly diluted and potentised.

Your remedy will be prepared in the form of tablets, pills, powder or a liquid. And these taste bland and slightly sweet.

Homeopathy works with our own bodies and immune and energy systems to stimulate our innate self-healing.

Homoeopathic remedies are:

  • Individually prescribed for you
  • Safe
  • Gentle
  • Sustainable
  • Non-toxic
  • Not tested on animals
  • Friendly for our environment
  • Free from side effects
  • Can be used alongside any other medications you take
  • Ideal for anyone to use: during pregnancy, while breastfeeding, for babies and children, teens, adults, and as we age and mature into our 90s and beyond.

As a Homeopath, I treat people, not diseases.

So, my job is to find the remedy that matches the pattern of illness and the symptoms you have.
Our life events and changes, exposure to bugs and viruses and stress affect our health. We get knocked off balance and become ill differently, so we experience illness and dis-ease in individual ways.

I see your emotional, mental and physical symptoms as important expressions of your health. I’m interested in everything.
