Homeopathy is a complementary medicine that is based upon the principle of treating ‘like with like’. It has been used effectively and safely worldwide for over 200 years and has been available on the NHS since it was established in 1948. Homeopathic remedies are made from natural materials, often plants or minerals. Each remedy stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanism to reduce and eliminate disease until permanent cure is reached. It is a holistic form of medicine that treats the whole person, physically and emotionally, rather than just individual symptoms.
Conditions that often respond well to Homeopathy and Nutritional therapy include:
- Allergies & asthma
- Anxiety, stress & panic attacks
- Low self esteem
- Depression & grief
- Eczema & other skin problems
- Rheumatism & arthritis
- ME, Lyme disease & chronic fatigue
- Recurring childhood conditions such as tonsillitis, ear infections & bed wetting
- Hormonal imbalances, menstrual & menopausal problems
- Infant complaints like colic, reflux & sleep problems
- Infertility & pre-conceptual care
- Childbirth support
- Verrucas, warts & molluscum
- Weight loss and energy management
Benefits of therapy
Homeopathy is very safe, unlike some conventional drugs; homeopathic medicines are non-addictive and have no dangerous side effects.
Homeopathy is a holistic form of medicine which brings long lasting health benefits to the emotional, mental and physical aspects of peoples lives.
Because it is a safe and gentle form of medicine it can be used by anyone – from babies, expectant mothers to the elderly. The pillules are small and sweet tasting which makes them pleasant and easy for them to take. A powdered form is available for babies.
Combining, where necessary, good quality Nutritional supplements with Homeopathic treatment can speed up the body’s natural healing process and boosts the immune system. Patients are able to purchase high quality brands such as Lamberts, Biocare and Nutri Advanced during and after treatment.
What happens in a session?
An individual, holistic approach is given in each consultation, together with lifestyle, dietary and nutritional advice. This ensures that you gain maximum benefit from each treatment and reach an optimum level of health as quickly as possible, and more importantly, that you are permanently able to sustain good health and energy.
Your first consultation will take approx. an hour during which time a full case history is taken in complete confidence. As well as asking about your symptoms, I will be interested in how you feel emotionally and the unique way in which your symptoms affect you.
Questions about your lifestyle, eating habits, sleep patterns, medical history and state of mind all help to form a complete picture of you in order to prescribe a correct and individual homeopathic medicine.
Follow-up consultations take 30 – 45 minutes and are used to measure progress and monitor the overall healing process. The duration and type of illness will determine how many appointments are necessary.
You can call us any time between 9am – 6pm Monday to Friday or 10am – 3pm each Saturday 01359 408 011
How long will a treatment take and how many do I need?
An initial consultation and session should take no more than 1 hour. Subsequent appointments should be between 45 minutes and 1 hour.
The frequency and number of sessions will depend entirely on the consultation and the recommendation
of your practitioner.
Is it covered by private health insurance?
If I am out of work, a student or retired – do you offer concessional rates?
Sadly concessional rates are not available with supplement purchases but in some cases, discounts are available on the rate charged for consultation time. Please speak with the practitioner for more information.
