Homeopathy is a natural and safe system of medicine
that works by stimulating your body’s own healing process. It recognises that all symptoms of illness
are simply the body’s way of showing that it is out of balance and that
it is doing its best to heal itself. By analysing the patterns and tendencies
of these symptoms, the homeopath can choose a remedy which matches your individual
nature and which will give your vital energy the boost it needs to restore
What will your homeopath need
Homeopathy is about treatment of the individual
as a unique person, on mental, emotional and physical levels. Your
homeopath has to get to know you well in
order to prescribe for you. So as well as telling her about your current symptoms,
she will ask you about your medical history, your personality and lifestyle,
your likes and dislikes, and she will invite you to tell your life story. Many
people find the opportunity to “tell their story” a healing process
The first consultation takes about two hours, then a follow up visit is normally
arranged for about a month later, in order to evaluate any reactions, and to
confirm that the correct remedy was given.
What are homeopathic remedies?
Homeopathic remedies are made from all the kingdoms of nature - plant, mineral
and animal. Wherever possible, animal-derived remedies are collected without
harming the animal. By a process of repeated succusion (shaking) and dilution,
the energetic properties of the substance are released, so that they can act
on the energy of the patient. Somewhere in the world there is a substance which
resonates with your own inner energy and which will bring healing to you
Homeopathic medicines have all been tested thoroughly on humans (not on animals).
They do not have side effects, are not addictive, and can be used in combination
with medicines from your doctor.
The remedies come as small tablets or in liquid form.
What will happen when I take the remedy?
After taking the remedy, many people feel an increase
in vitality, feel “better
in themselves” even before their other symptoms start to improve.
Homeopathy does not just relieve symptoms but works to restore health at a
core level, giving long-lasting alleviation or cure of persistent or recuring
How long treatment takes depends on what sort of illness you have. A complaint
which you have had for many years may take some time to clear, although there
will probably be some improvement quite quickly. People often find that the
process of treatment leads to other positive changes in their lives. We have
to encourage our patients to “be patient!”
