Homeopathy for better health
Homeopathy is a safe, natural, non-toxic and effective medicine. Homeopathic remedies boost the immune system which in turn kick starts the body’s own healing ability.
Homeopathy teaches us to become more aware of our own health and our own Achilles heel. We all have one or possibly two specific areas that mainly affect our health. For example, if you suffer from sore throats, when you start to get run down or there is a particular issue that is effecting you, you will start to feel a tingle in your throat. With the Homeopathic system of medicine, you will become very consciously aware of this fact and with Homeopathic treatment, you can take a remedy that will assist in curing this quickly and effectively. For example if your child is unwell, they can be treated with these gentle medicines that have no side effects and promote health. For such minor ailments, you can have a skype consultation, so you don’t even need to leave your home and the remedy can be posted to you or collected. Skype consultations can only be offered once you have has one complete health consultation in person.
Two or three homeopathic sessions can bring you to this state of health too. If there are more deep rooted issues in your past it can take a little longer. Homeopathy changed my life and assisted me to deal effectively with sexual abuse I had suffered as a child.
It is a wonderful state of health to be in particularly in the times we live. The initial Homeopathic session last about and hour and half as we gather all of your past information and details on life, health, personality, events, accidents, illnesses and in particular how you are feeling at the current time and what challenges you face.
A follow up treatment last about an hour long and can feel much more effective as it looked at what has happened between sessions and how the remedy has worked in the meantime. It is truly a wonderful method of health care treating mental, physical and emotional issues throughout life’s journey.

What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a system of ‘whole person healing’. It uses the complete mental, emotional and physical symptom picture of a patient in an initial consultation that last about an hour and a half long. This symptom picture is the external indication of the patient’s internal disease. A homeopathic remedy is prescribed at the end of the appointment or shortly afterwards. By this method the central disease cause, at the root of all the patients symptoms is removed, meaning the symptoms are unlikely to return again. The word Homeopathy, comes from the Greek words meaning ‘similar suffering’. This idea of ‘like cures like’ or ‘similar suffering’ is the basis of all homeopathic remedy prescription and treatment. For example, everybody has peeled an onion at some time and experienced the tears and stinging eyes. You cry, your eyes become red and sore, a dribble may run from your nose. The homeopathic remedy Allium Cepa made from red onions, is used when a sick patient exhibits these type of symptoms. It doesn’t matter if they have a cold, hay fever or asthma, if they display these symptoms Allium Cepa will help to cure them. Three clients may be suffering from migraine but each person may be prescribed a different remedy depending on their own individual experience of the migraine. So this is very much a personal and individual treatment for each person.

What are homeopathic remedies?
Homeopathic remedies were discovered in 1796 by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann the founder of homeopathy. He pioneered remedy potentisation, a method of diluting natural substances in water, and vibrating them many times, to release their internal healing energy. There are thousands of homeopathic remedies in use today to treat a wide variety of diseases, depending upon the symptoms of each individual patient.
How can Homeopathy help me?
Many people come to a homeopath for help with a specific symptom or condition. For example arthritis, asthma, back pain, indeterminate aches and pains, menstrual problems, migraines, rheumatism, sciatica or skin conditions. A good homeopath however, will not only treat your specific symptom or condition, but your whole person, guiding you back to health in the most gentle and natural way.
What does a homeopathic consultation involve?
The initial consultation lasts about one and a half hours, during which time you talk and answer questions about your symptoms and problems. The homeopath will then analyse your case and decide on the specific remedy for you. If a follow up appointment is required it can be arranged at the end of your consultation.
Are homeopathic remedies Safe?
Created using natural animal, vegetable or mineral substances diluted in water, homeopathic remedies are completely safe and without any side effects. Sometimes a patient may experience a slight aggravation of their symptoms for a short time, but this is just evidence that the immune system is working harder to combat the disease. Homeopathic remedies are completely non-addictive, and once the healing process has started you can stop taking the remedy.
What if I am taking conventional medicines?
Homeopathic remedies can be safely taken alongside conventional medicines and are sometimes prescribed to complement their action. If you are taking any prescription or non-prescription medicines, you should tell your homeopath about them. Always consult your doctor before ceasing any prescription medicines.
Things to bear in mind …
Although you may get an immediate response from your remedy, healing is a process which takes time. Be patient and allow the natural healing process to take place. If you are coming to the homeopath about a child’s health, the child will need to be present during the consultation.
10 Good Reasons to Use Homeopathy
1. NO HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS.
A special preparation process called potentisation, dilutes and refines the medicines to remove any toxic side effects. It is safe for babies and during pregnancy and menopause. However it is advised to be under the care of a qualified homeopathic practitioner if you are pregnant.
Homeopathy works by stimulating the body’s own natural defence mechanism to heal itself. Although gentle, the results may be powerful and long lasting.
Homeopathy takes into account the whole person. Often only one remedy may address all your complaints.
Homeopathic medicines cost surprisingly less than allopathic prescription medication. The Homeopathic medicines are intended to boost the immune system making you stronger and less likely to get sick.
5. PREVENTATIVE TREATMENT
By boosting the body’s immune system Homeopathy can help improve a person’s resistance to illness and infections.
6. NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS
Homeopathy is not tested on animals. Humans respond differently to medication than animals. All Homeopathic medication is tested on healthy humans. The symptoms that a substance, taken over time, elicits in a healthy person, are shown to be exactly those that can be cured in a sick person suffering from those symptoms.
7. EASY TO TAKE
Homeopathic medicines are given either as small, pleasant tasting tablets which dissolve in the mouth, or in a liquid form. Granules, powders or drops are available for babies and children.
8. PATIENT INVOLVEMENT
The Homeopath will ask many questions not only about the symptoms which are bothering an individual, but how they react to the condition as well as wanting to know about general health and lifestyle.
9. INVALUABLE FOR FIRST AID
Homeopathic medicines can be safely used in the home or workplace to treat simple problems such as bruises, minor burns, sprains, insect bites and gastric upsets. However more serious or chronic complaints should be treated by a qualified practitioner.
10. THE MEDICINE OF THE FUTURE.
With over 6,000 Homeopathic medicines in existence and new homeopathic medicines being discovered all the time, Homeopathy is a growing art. Unlike allopathic medicine where drugs are taken off the market every year as new side effects are discovered. Homeopaths still use the same medicines they were using 200 years ago with new medicines to broaden their scope. Scientists are only now making breakthroughs in quantum physics which give a deeper understanding of Homeopathy as it was used 200 years ago.
