Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances , given mainly in tablet form or liquid,
Homoeopathic medicine has been practised for more than 200 years now. The effective use of Homoeopathy has been verified by countless millions of prescriptions to patients and regular everyday people using Homoeopathy from treating common cold to chronic diseases.
Homoeopathic medicine aims to treat by stimulating your defence mechanism so that your body can heal itself.
Homeopathy aims to treat the whole person, taking into account personality, lifestyle and hereditary factors as well as the history of the disease. Since all patients are unique, homeopathic medicines are prescribed to treat patients as individuals. For example, headaches in different patients would each be treated with different medicines, according to the patient’s individual symptoms.
Homeopathy can be of benefit for all ages, at any stage including pregnant women, mothers, fathers, babies, young children, teenagers, and the elderly. Homeopathy can treat the symptoms of a wide range of conditions including, for example:
Acute complaints – coughs, colds, earache, food poisoning, hangover, travel sickness etc.
Chronic complaints – skin conditions, hormone imbalances, depression, headaches, behavioural problems, digestive disturbances, asthma, arthritis etc.
Vague symptoms - where there are no identifiable causes of disease, but the person feels far from well.
I take a detail case history, Information relating to current symptoms and past medical history with any test reports are important to look at. I will enquire about your diet, sleep, lifestyle, and about some mental and emotional aspects. In case on a physical complaint Physical examinations may be required. This may take 15-30 minutes.
After taking the symptoms the prescription of Homeopathic medicine involves matching all of the symptoms and individual characteristics of the patient to the medicine. For an example two people with the same condition may have very different prescriptions because of their own unique set of symptoms.
After the prescription I also advise on general lifestyle and dietary changes as part of a treatment plan and discuss the future treatment plan with clinical testing to confirm that the presenting complaint is treated.
