FAQ

What conditions can homeopathy help with?

Homeopathy treats each person as a whole and an individual so anyone receiving homeopathic treatment should over time begin to feel better on all levels.

Some of the conditions that homeopathy can help with are shown below, but this list is not exhaustive.

What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a system which treats people holistically, as an individual and as a whole.  It doesn’t just treat the presenting symptom it takes the person into account  For example I might see 5 people all coming to me with the same problem, e.g. migraines or insomnia and they would more than likely be prescribed with 5 different remedies.  Something that is chosen to suit their individual symptoms.

Homeopathy is based on the principal of “like cures like” and is an effective and safe system of medicine which uses minute doses of a substance to stimulate the body’s own healing process.

The beauty of homeopathy is it can be used for all age groups and can also be used alongside conventional medicine.

What will happen during the homeopathic consultation?

Consultations are all confidential.  The first consultation can take approximately 1.5 hours where I will take a detailed history, not only your medical history but details such as your sleep patterns, food preferences, how the weather affects you.  All the things that make you individual.  I will really listen to you and what you have to say about your health and symptoms.

There will be plenty of time for you to tell me about your symptoms, when they started and how they affect your life, in a safe and confidential environment.  I will then carefully select a remedy unique to your symptoms and your personality which will work on both the emotional and physical levels.

The aim is to get you to a level of health so that eventually you will need infrequent treatment.

How long will treatment last?

The length of treatment will vary from person to person and will depend on what sort of symptoms you have and also how you respond to remedies prescribed over a period of time.  Slow developing and chronic conditions or ones that you have had for many years will not disappear immediately but other acute complaints should get better over a shorter period of time.

I usually recommend an initial consultation and then up to four follow up appointments when we will review progress.  Some of my previous patients have only needed to see me once or twice and others have seen me for approximately six months while others like to see me on an ongoing basis every few months as a maintenance as they feel homeopathy helps them in many aspects of their life.

Follow up appointments are usually made for one month after the first consultation which allows the remedy time to work.  During the follow up appointment we discuss any changes and improvements that have occurred and I decide on the next remedy.
