WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY AND HOW COULD I BENEFIT FROM IT?
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that helps the body heal itself. A homeopathic consultation focuses on the whole person and enables the homeopathic medicines (known as remedies) to be selected on the basis of all aspects of the patient and his or her symptoms.
This means that each treatment – like each person – is unique. Homeopathy can help a wide range of complaints which may be short term or chronic, physical or emotional.
Homeopathic remedies are not addictive and have no dangerous side effects. They can be used during pregnancy and are safe for babies, children and the elderly.
WHAT TO EXPECT
At your initial homeopathic consultation, a full medical history will be taken. I will be interested in your presenting symptoms, past illnesses and injuries as well as your exercise regime, lifestyle, hobbies, diet and medication.
The first homeopathy consultation is very detailed and takes about an hour. I will be interested to know about your condition but also will want to know when symptoms started, what was happening in your life at that time and what, if anything makes your symptoms better or worse. It’s important to me to get as much detail as possible. This will help me choose the most specific remedy for your symptoms.
