Homeopathy is an alternative therapy which is based on treating the individual with highly diluted substances given in mainly tablet form, which triggers the body’s natural system of healing. Homeopathy is a talking therapy, in which the homeopath takes a full case history. Based on their experience of their symptoms, a homeopath will match the most appropriate medicine to the patient. The principles of Homeopathy were formulated by Physician Samuel Hahnemann in Germany in the late 1700s. Today Homeopathy is widespread.

Helping the Body Heal Itself
Homeopathy derives from the Greek words “homoios” meaning “similar” and “pathos” meaning “suffering”, translating to “similar suffering”. Homeopaths treat with remedies that mimic the symptoms of the disease to strengthen the body’s own healing ability. This is achieved by a principle called “the law of similars”
The Law of Similars
This principle is a belief, which ages back to healers such as Paracelsus, who believe that substances that produce symptoms in a healthy person can be used to treat similar symptoms in an unwell person. An example of this would be Coffee. Some people experience aggravation from coffee’s stimulating effects. These effects may include increased physical and mental alertness, along with an exaggerated response to stimuli. These people may present with symptoms of headaches, insomnia, and an over stimulated nervous system. These people would be prescribed Coffea Cruda prepared in a Homeopathic manner. By finding a remedy similar to your symptoms, this will induce gentle, safe and natural healing.
Treating the Whole Person
Homeopathy is a holistic therapy and the Homeopath will consider the whole person. A Homoeopath will take into account many areas including: personality, hereditary factors, and lifestyle. Homeopathic medicines are prescribed in account of all information given which gives the individual prescription.
Homeopathy treats the patient as a whole. The initial consultation will last for approximately 1 - 1.5 hours and subsequent consultations will be approximately 1 hour. We will talk through the reason why you came to Homeopathy in depth, discussing things such as when it started, current symptoms, what makes it better and worse, and any other relevant symptoms. This information will be valuable to select a remedy; however this information alone will not be sufficient to prescribe with. The symptoms will match many remedy pictures and so the rest of the consultation will be used to build a homeopathic understanding of you as a whole. Whilst some of the questions may feel a little unusual, this is how we individualise you and ascertain the correct healing remedy which matches your energy.
Your remedy can be given in either a pill form or in a liquid form, which will be posted a few days after the consultation. Instructions for taking the remedy will be sent with the remedy. Everything that is discussed in the consultation will remain confidential.
Please note: Currently there is a dispute over the efficacy of homeopathy due to a lack of scientific evidence. As a homeopath and a homeopathy client I have always found efficacious; please see our client's testimonials for their view.
