Homeopathy

Tel: 01609 779927

Homeopathy was pioneered by a German physician, Samuel Hahnemann and has been used worldwide for more than 200 years. Hahnemann was looking for a way to reduce the damaging side effects associated with the medical treatments of this day, which included poisons such as mercury. He began experimenting on himself and a group of healthy volunteers, giving smaller and smaller medicinal doses.  He discovered that as well as reducing toxicity, his medicines became more effective as the doses were lowered.

What is a Homeopathic medicine?

Homeopathy is a holistic medicine which uses specially prepared, highly diluted substances (given mainly in tablet form) with the aim of triggering the body’s own healing mechanisms. Homeopathic medicine is based on the principle of ‘like treats like’ – that is, a substance which can cause symptoms when taken in large doses can be used in small, dilute amounts to treat similar symptoms. We all know that drinking too much coffee can cause sleeplessness and agitation. So according to this principle, coffee, when made as a Homeopathic remedy, can be one of the treatments used to help people who regularly experience sleeplessness or irritability.

What will my Homeopath need to know?

In order to have a thorough understanding of your health your Homeopath will need to ask a lot of questions during your first consultation; taking into account a variety of factors such as medical history, personality traits, lifestyle, aspirations, sleep, likes and dislikes. All of this useful information helps your Homeopath to build up a relationship with you and enables her to understand what is unique about you and your experience of a diagnosed illness.  This valuable information is then used to assess which remedy is a match for your symptoms. It is useful to bring any medical test results and a list of prescribed drugs with you to your first consultation.

Consultation

You will have plenty of time to explain your health concerns during your first consultation, which normally lasts 90 minutes. Follow up appointments generally last between 30-40 minutes, and are made at four weekly intervals.  The number of follow up appointments and prescriptions vary from person to person. Homeopathy is a gradual process of change towards better health and your response will depend on your symptoms and how long you have been experiencing them.
