“Homeopathy is wholly capable of satisfying the therapeutic demands of this age better than any other system or school of medicine.“ – Charles Frederick Menninger, M.D. , founder of the Menninger Clinic
Homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and natural system of medicine that works with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health. Using diluted substances which trigger the body’s own healing mechanisms. It’s used all over the world by millions of people
Homeopathy has been around for a long time! Noted by Hippocrates in the fifteenth century and developed by Dr Samuel Hahnemann in the early 1800’s, who is considered to be the founding father of homeopathy.
Used with acute and chronic conditions homeopathy understands that we are all unique and treats the individual, not the disease.
People choose homeopathy for many different reasons. It maybe they want a medicine that is natural with no side effects. It could be they haven’t found a treatment that has worked for them or their symptoms have no conventional treatment.
What can I expect from my first homeopathy consultation?
It’s vital you have time to tell me all about your symptoms in the consultation, this will include when they started, what makes them better or worse and importantly how they make you feel. We all experience symptoms in a slightly different way (even if we have the same diagnosis) this is why a homeopathic consultation is much longer than other practitioners often give. The initial consultation is up to 90 minutes, so you can explain all your symptoms whether they are emotional or physical.
If you are booking a consultation for your child and worried, they cannot articulate their symptoms, this is not a problem. As a parent you know your child better than anyone else and we can work together to understand the symptoms they are experiencing.
Who can use homeopathy?
Homeopathy is safe for babies, children, teenagers, adults, pregnant women and the elderly, this is because it is a gentle non-toxic medicine free of side effects. It can also be used alongside other medicines.
