Pam came to see me for her hot flushes, exhaustion and psoriasis. The first thing I noticed was she carried a bottle of water and didn’t let it go, holding it tightly and drinking from it throughout the consultation.

She told me she felt heated all the time, she was exhausted and it interfered with her sleep, she avoided public transport and would change clothes 3 times a day. She was irritable with her family and it was getting the whole family down.

She explained that she’d had psoriasis since she was a child, she’d always lived with it and it was manageable but she felt it was getting worse.

The heat she felt in her body made her want to continually scratch her skin and this didn’t help. The psoriasis had always been on her elbows and knees but she told me it was now spreading to her legs, arms and face. She said she felt ugly.

I spent some time on her case and decided to prescribe her Sulphur which incorporated all of her symptoms working on the totality both on the physical and emotional levels.

Pam returned for her follow up appointment five weeks later.

I noticed her skin was less red and she told me it was less itchy so she was able to forget about it. She said her sleep had only began to improve in the last few weeks and her hot flushes had gradually reduced but were still happening but she wasn’t having to change clothes 3 times a day. I also noticed that she was not clinging to the bottle of water and only drank from it occasionally.

Pam continued to see me for a period of 6 months during which time we worked together, her skin improved gradually. Her hot flushes were far and few between and she was far less irritable with her family. I also supported Pam through a time when both her husband and father became ill. She told me that had this happened a few months earlier she would have gone into a complete meltdown and would probably have had a breakdown. She felt stronger and more confident in every aspect of her life.

She was so pleased with her treatment that she told her son about homeopathy and I went on to help him for depression and skin problems.

Homeopathy can support us on many levels and whilst Pam came to see me with hot flushes and psoriasis they are two very different conditions, however because homeopathy treats the whole person I selected a remedy that took into account all of her symptoms and also on the emotional side. This is why homeopathy is so effective – it treats the whole person and it is gentle, safe and more importantly non-toxic.

My Confidence Returned as my Skin got Better

My Confidence Returned as my skin got better

The names have been changed for confidentiality reasons.  Paul, 21 came to see me for eczema and asthma.  Like many eczema cases it was worse in the winter and better in the sun.  Paul had it on his elbows, backs of legs and on his face.  It had got worse over the last 4 years. He had asthma since he was aged 8.  He told me that he wakes up in the night and is wheezy. He said when he feels happy he is good but he also gets depressed especially over his skin. He told me that this made him feel like he was two different people. He blocks things out and tries not to think about things.  If his skin is bad he won’t go out and worries about what people think about him and feels that people are looking at his skin.   He told me he had a girlfriend for the last 3 years but she wanted to dump him unless he stops smoking cannabis.   He also said he hated his job and never got up for it and was always late.

When I took this case there was a lot going on, suppression of skin conditions and also the asthma. Both the skin and lungs are linked and that is why we see so many cases of suppressed skin conditions leading to asthma. His girlfriend was asking him to stop smoking and he was not enjoying his work, not to mention that when his skin flared up he didn’t want to go out or be seen.

I prescribed a solution to be taken daily (Silica) and asked Paul to come back to see me in 6 weeks time when we would assess the remedy action and make any changes necessary.  He duly came back and reported that his skin had improved and remarkably that he had stopped smoking.  He told me that he started to see improvements after two weeks.  He told me he felt much more confident and also informed me that he had split up with his girlfriend which he was okay.   He said his life was much better and he was entering a new chapter of his life. He was still unsure what he wanted to do job wise but had found a new job working with his friend’s Dad who had his own business.   The job involved meeting new people and this did not worry him.  He was enjoying it and was getting up for work and arriving on time.

Paul said “I hadn’t realized how the remedy could help me with so many other things, so I would give it a 9 out of 10”.

Many people don’t really understand that homeopathy treats people holistically and doesn’t just address one symptom. In this case because Paul’s confidence returned he was able to make changes to his life and move forward. The change in this young man was quite remarkable from the first time I met him.

Treating the skin with homeopathy – A Testimonial

After Homeopathic Treatment
Before Homeopathic Treatment

 

 

As a homeopath it is my job to encourage symptoms to leave the body, and this is usually through the skin and discharges (i.e colds, etc).  The philosophy which is over 200 years old works on the basis of removing symptoms from inside to outside, from top to bottom and away from internal organs.

So when I am asked to treat skin conditions I always let people know that I do not suppress symptoms, as is the case with the use of creams and steroid creams which push skin conditions further into the body and suppresses them.  It is no surprise that there is a link between eczema and asthma.  By not suppressing symptoms and bringing out the disturbance it can sometimes mean that the skin can get worse before it gets better and I explain this to anyone that wants me to treat their skin condition.

The following is a testimonial from someone I recently treated for a skin condition.

“Having previously consulted with Tracey for a different condition (mildly asthmatic symptoms) I approached her at the end of December 2016 to discuss whether homeopathy might be able to help with another problem I’d been suffering with for well over 2 years. Several visits to the doctor and consultation with different GPs had failed to diagnose and treat a skin rash that had started around my nose but had begun to spread further.

I’d had diagnoses of seborrheic dermatitis and rosacea and tried a variety of creams without success; in fact, the cream I’d been prescribed several months previously seemed to have caused the condition to deteriorate.   Following a consultation with Tracey she told me she believed she could treat it but also warned that the condition could become worse before it improved. She explained that the creams I’d been using simply suppressed the symptoms and that to treat the condition effectively it would have to be flushed out of my system.

I started taking the remedy on New Year’s Day and immediately stopped using any prescribed creams, determined to give Tracey’s homeopathic remedy a chance. That was particularly tough when, as I’d been advised, within 2 weeks it worsened and became very inflamed and itchy. However, the results speak for themselves. Within 2 months my skin was clear of the redness, inflammation and spots and has remained so since. I’m now a complete convert to homeopathy and would recommend Tracey without reservation!”

I really like it when a patient gets on board with their treatment and accepts there might be an initial reaction before it can get better.  If you would like to find out more about how I may be able to help you using homeopathy please contact me for a free no obligation 15 minute call.
