What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is based on the principle of ‘like curing like’ – that whatever can harm you in a big dose, may cure you if given in minute doses.
It uses the principles of nature to help stimulate the body’s own natural healing powers.
What is Homeopathy treatment like?
Homeopathic remedies are specially prepared, highly diluted substances typically in the form of tiny pills, liquid or powder. They are sourced from mainly plants and minerals.
When will you need Homeopathy?
Homeopathy treats the person as a whole, rather than treating specific conditions in isolation.
Often it is the cumulative effects of anxiety, fear and stress that can make you feel not at your best. Homeopathy helps to get to the root cause of what is distressing you and your body and determine what is naturally needed to help strengthen your physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Homeopathy is suitable for all age groups from infants to the elderly and can be used during pregnancy.
What conditions will Homeopathy help?
Homeopathy may help a wide range of acute and chronic physical and emotional conditions. For example:
• Pre and post menstrual
• Pre and post operations
• Injuries, bruising
Homeopathy is often sought when a person may not have responded to other treatments for a specific problem. It can also work effectively alongside conventional medicine to help boost recovery – but always consult with your GP first if you are taking medication.
What will happen at your first appointment?
The initial consultation usually lasts for an hour. This will take details about your medical history, family medical history, and involve discussions about your diet, physical and emotional well-being.
How long does homeopathic treatment take?
This is highly dependent on what condition you have and other contributory characteristics.
A starting point would be to expect to see your homeopath once a month for three months, then beyond this stage you may need follow up appointments at progressively longer intervals as your health improves.
