Homeopathy is a gentle yet highly effective form of natural medicine. It was created by a German physician Dr Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). It is based on the principle that “like cures like” meaning that a medicine given to a healthy person will produce a set of symptoms that in turn can treat these same symptoms in a sick person. Homeopathy is unique in its ability to stimulate the body’s natural healing response.
Homeopathy recognises that all symptoms of ill-health are expressions of disharmony within the person & that it is the person who needs treatment not the disease. It is a perfect tool for mind–body healing & works directly on a person’s core essence & vitality.
Taking a homeopathic case is very different to most other modalities as it requires detailed descriptions of a patient symptoms and how these symptoms not only effect the patient but how they present. Homeopathic prescribing is individualised, no two patients present with the same symptoms even though they may have the same illness. Remedies are chosen based on the individuals presentation of their symptoms.
During a consultation we will work to understand you as a whole person, what is occurring in your life, how it is effecting you, as well as any symptoms of ill-health that you are experiencing. These may include any physical symptoms, sleep patterns, behaviors, food cravings, dreams and traumatic events that have occurred in your life.
Gathering as much information as possible insures that we are able to select the most appropriate remedy for you. Changes can either be quite dramatic or can occur in a more subtle fashion but most patients will often notice their symptoms resolve.

How do Homeopathies work?
The homeopathic remedies stimulate your bodys healing ability correcting the imbalance that caused the dis-ease in the first place. According to the most recent studies, the medicines act as a electromagnetic signal, which is picked up by nerves and relayed to higher centres of the brain, which in turn stimulates our bodies healing powers to take specific corrective measures. The medicine’s tell the body ‘What to do?’ and then the body does the work itself.
