About Homeopathy

What is Homeopathy? Homeopathy is a 200-year-old system of medicine that is safe, gentle and very effective. It is based on the principle that ‘Like Cures Like‘. Homeopathy is used by over 1.5 billion people around the world. The homeopathic remedies that I prescribe will gently encourage & assist your body to heal itself.


Homeopathy is a holistic medicine, treating the whole person.


Its aim is to rebalance the whole individual, treating all symptoms, rather than to rid the individual of single symptoms by suppression.

Your defences

Symptoms are produced by the body’s defense mechanism in reaction to attacks or imbalances:

  • that are inherited
  • which may surface under stress
  • which may surface as you age
  • as a result of suppressive medicines

Assisting your defence mechanism

Under stress and over time, your defence mechanism doesn’t always have the energy to deal with the effects of attacks or inherited predispositions.

It will try to externalise them, prioritising the higher, essential organs and the higher processes, such as mental health, pushing disease towards less essential systems and organs, such as the skin.

Suppressive therapies that rid the body of skin symptoms do so by overpowering it and forcing it to drop back its defences to a more internal level.

Often these suppressive effects are seen as ‘side effects of medicines. They are the triggering of deeper predispositions when the body’s defences have been overpowered.

Homeopathy works by boosting the efforts of the defence mechanism, thus you will probably see a slight increase in your symptoms when you start treatment with a correct remedy, followed by improvement. The time this process takes will depend upon your level of health and your body’s energy. If you suffer from deep, chronic problems for a long time it will take time to improve.

During effective homeopathic treatment, we look for a temporary return of old, suppressed conditions on the way toward a rebalancing of the whole person (“cure”).
We look for mental and emotional problems to resolve first.
This is the body effectively pushing the imbalance to the periphery.

During recovery, you should begin to feel your energy improving and to feel ‘better in yourself.

How homeopathic remedies are made?

Over-the-counter homeopathic medicines are made using natural plant, mineral and, occasionally, animal substances (the label will always tell you if the product is unsuitable for vegetarians or vegans). Prescribed remedies may also originate from a biological, chemical or synthetic source. If interested to know more about remedy preparation read here.

Why does Homeopathy work?

The body has an innate intelligence. No matter what stresses are placed on it, the body will attempt to remain healthy/balanced. Illness occurs when the body is unable to retain this balance. Contrary to other systems of medicine, Homeopathy sees your symptoms not as something to be suppressed but as your bodies attempt to regain health & balance. Our remedies assist the body in regaining this balance.

“The highest ideal of cure is the rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of

Samuel Hahnemann

Is there any evidence it will work?

Yes, we have two centuries of evidence & thousands of cured ‘incurable’ cases. For scientific research into homeopathy, please see the link to Homeopathic Research Institute

Homeopathy works by restoring health and balance to the patient using individualised natural remedies to treat the whole person, not the disease.
