Homeopathy works by assisting the body’s own natural self-healing power using minute doses of medicines which, in larger doses, actually produce the symptoms that are being treated.
Homeopathic medicine is gentle, safe, free from side effects and will improve your overall standard of health as well as treating your complaints. It can be used safely in conjunction with conventional medicine.
The first consultation takes 90 minutes for adults which gives us time to look at all your symptoms in detail. We also discuss wider aspects of your health, including your past medical history and family medical history. In this way, we build up a picture of your individual sensitivity to illness before carefully selecting the appropriate medicine.
Children first cases last up to 60 minutes. Materials are provided for drawing and parents are welcome to bring a favourite toy. Siblings can also attend as long as the main focus is on the patient.
The remedy, sourced from an approved homeopathic pharmacy like Helios, is prescribed either at the end of the consultation or sent to you in the post a few days later. The medicine comes in the form of a small sugar pill which is normally taken as a single or daily dose to start the healing process. The cost of the medicine is included in the consultation fee.
Patients return 1-4 weeks later for a follow-up (30-60 minutes) to check on progress. We see how you have responded to the medicine and adjust the dose or remedy itself to promote your recovery.
Most patients respond positively to a short course of treatment (3-6 sessions) and they usually knew quite quickly whether homeopathy is suitable for them.
Those patients who are generally healthy often require only minimal treatment. Others, with more serious or chronic health problems, usually need longer support to get better. But the amount of treatment is as individual as you are.
Skype follow-ups are possible after some initial face-to-face consultations.
