A Successful Career Woman with Chronic Cystitis & Pain

A Successful Career Woman with Chronic Cystitis & Pain
Homeopathy & Cystitis

Katie had chronic cystitis and was referred to me by another patient I had helped in the past.  Katie was in her early 40s.  She had a high-powered job which took her on regular business trips around the world.

Katie had been suffering with cystitis since her 20s and more recently, in the last 3 years, the infections had become more painful and severe. She now had blood in her urine and she was experiencing lots of kidney pain.   She told me that traveling was becoming more difficult and the pain was affecting her sleep.

Katie had been prescribed anti-biotics since her 20s and had even become resistant to some of them. She told me that as a rule she would have to take them at least once a month, sometimes twice which was usually how often she got an infection.

She was becoming anxious about her health, her job and wasn’t firing on all cylinders because of the lack of sleep and energy.   She was completely drained and said she felt like a “human speed bump”.

The first thing I decided to do with Katie’s treatment plan was to detox her from the years of over use of anti-biotics. I also prescribed her with her constitutional remedy taking in the totality of all her symptoms and I prescribed a remedy to support her kidneys. I asked to see her again in 5 weeks time for a follow up consultation where we would assess the remedy reaction.

At the follow up consultation Katie told me that she had been on two business trips and had been symptom free, with no infections. She felt so much better, although she was still a little bit stressed and anxious. I asked Katie to continue with the homeopathic detox, this was an 8 week course and I prescribed her with her constitutional remedy again. I asked to see her for another follow up in one month’s time.

At the third consultation Katie told me that she had not had an infection for almost three months and had now completed the detox.   More importantly she hadn’t needed to take any anti-biotics during this time. She reported that she felt much better on all levels and had energy to start exercising properly again.  I no longer need to see Katie as homeopathy has done it’s job.

Homeopathy treats the person and not the symptoms unlike conventional medicine. Conventional medicine just treats the symptoms and whilst the symptoms disappear the infections never get better in the long term and usually return. In this case a resistance to the anti-biotics built up and the symptoms went deeper inside the body – to the kidneys.

If you have a history of repeated infections or are taking anti-biotics or any medication and you would like to talk to me to see how I may be able to help please feel free to contact me for a free no obligation chat.  Homeopathy gets to the root cause and treats the totality.

Anxiety – don’t let it get the better of you.

I am seeing more people in my practice who are living with stress and anxiety. Anyone who has anxiety will know only too well how debilitating this can be and how it can eat into all areas of their life.

There are different types of anxiety and one is quite normal, for example to feel nervous before taking an exam or driving test, but then there is another kind which is more than a feeling of nervousness or unease about doing something.   It can over time, manifest itself and can have a crippling affect on lives, leading to not wanting to do things, and in severe cases not even wanting to leave the house and do the things that were once enjoyed. The anxiety grows even more and can lead to further symptoms such as high blood pressure and palpitations.

People experiencing anxiety begin to think there is something wrong with them, which of course isn’t the case at all.  Unfortunately these thoughts then leave people feeling even more anxious and self-conscious and the anxiety becomes a vicious circle.

If you recognise any of the above symptoms and would like to overcome your anxiety please contact me and we can discuss your individual symptoms to see how I may be able to help you.  I also offer consultations via Skype if you do not live nearby or live overseas.

Do you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?

If you suffer from IBS then you will be familiar with the symptoms that can sometimes make your life a misery. The symptoms and causes differ from person to person, but range from abdominal cramps, bloating, diarrhoea or constipation. Some IBS sufferers report that their symptoms are usually worse during periods of stress.

As a homeopath when I treat IBS, I discuss everything with you; when your IBS symptoms are worse, if anything makes them better and together we look at triggers, diet, lifestyle or things that have happened to you in the past and any history of taking anti-biotics.

I then work on your case to find a remedy based on you as a person and your IBS symptoms. By taking this approach and trying to find the root cause it is my aim to help improve your IBS symptoms.
