What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a system of healing disharmony in the body: it addresses the whole person, not just the “disease”, and it does so gently from within. The word homeopathy means “similar suffering” and homeopathic medicines work on the principle that “like cures like”. A substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person is used, in a very dilute but potentness form, to alleviate those same symptoms in illness.

Usually the remedies will be prescribed to you at the time of the consultation and can be collected from Helios pharmacy (near by). If it is more convenient I will ask the pharmacy to post them to your directly. Occasionally I will want some extra time to work on your case and I will tell you the following day which remedy is needed.
What to expect after the consultation
Remedies are taken as prescribed and any changes, improvements and aggravations should be told to me at our next meeting so I can see how the remedy has worked and what to move on to. If you have any concerns about your treatment you are welcome to contact me between appointments by e mail.
How to take remedies
- Remedies are best taken 10 minutes away from food or drink
- Powders are tipped dry on to the tongue
- Pillules are tipped in the lid (trying not to touch the remedy) and then either sucked or bitten.
- Soft tablets dissolve on touching the tongue and are useful to give to babies.
- LM liquid are banged on your palm 5 times before each dose and then take the number of drops indicated on the label.
What to avoid during treatment.
Whilst on remedies it can be best to avoid any products containing Menthol, tea tree and eucalyptus.
