About Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a system of medicine that seeks to restore health and well being to each individual. It is a well-regulated and safe form of medicine with little or no side effects.

It relies on, and works with, the body's own healing powers. It was developed over 200 years ago by a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann. He pioneered a different approach to healing using the basic principle of the way of similars : like cures like. This means that a substance that produces certain symptoms in a well person can be used to cure an unwell person who has similar symptoms. It is now widely accepted as one of the complementary medicine systems and is recognised by health insurance companies.

Homeopathy is holistic. It takes into account all aspects of the person, physical, emotional and mental. It is used to offer help with many ailments from acute conditions, like sore throats and stomach upsets to chronic conditions. An audit of my practice shows that patients coming with a diagnosis from their doctor of

  • Psychological illnesses, for example, anxiety, prolonged grief, obsessive disorders, fears and phobias
  • Conditions which may have an element of psychosomatic causation, for example, insomnia
  • Hormonal imbalances, for example, menopausal complaints
  • Chronic conditions in which recurrent episodes are common, for example, asthma and eczema

have sought support from myself since 1998.

Homeopathic remedies are made mainly from plant and mineral sources. They suit all ages from babies through to elderly individuals. Remedies are gentle, subtle and powerful.
