Homoeopathy is a holistic system of healing aiming to achieve, and then maintain, a good state of health.
It is a different way of looking at health, treating you and your symptoms as unique, healing the whole person not just the ailment. Based on the principle of like cures like, a substance that produces certain symptoms in a healthy person will, when given in homoeopathic doses, cure those same symptoms in a sick person.
This natural medicine is gentle and safe, giving long-lasting benefits without any damaging side-effects. Homoeopathic remedies work by stimulating your natural
healing mechanisms, and at the same time strengthen your defences making you
less susceptible to ill-health.
Remedies are made from minute amounts of plant, mineral or animal extracts. They are non-toxic, non-habit forming, and are tested on people rather than animals.
The key to homoeopathy is to understand you as a unique person and finding the remedy that best matches you and your symptoms.
Good health involves both the mind and the body so time is taken to listen to your emotional responses as well as to your physical symptoms. You will be asked how your symptoms affect you, about yourself and your characteristics, your lifestyle, your preferences and your family history. At all times anything you say is treated with professional confidence.
The initial consultation takes approximately one and a half hours for adults, and an hour for children. Subsequent consultations last about thirty to forty five minutes. The information you give will be used to formulate your personal prescription. This may
take a few days and a remedy will be posted to you. Remedies are easy to take and pleasant to the taste.

What Homoeopathy Can Treat?

A few years down the road after another day at the steel works I decided to train and follow my real passion which was Homeopathy. Since then I have not looked back and the rewards of treating my family and my clients are not measurable. Adults, Children and pets are all reaping the fruits of this often misunderstood treatment and I hope that one day it will be used as the first line of treatment before conventional treatment of many illnesses.
