Homeopathy treats the person rather than the named “disease” so potentially it can help patients with a wide range of conditions, both acute and chronic. Illnesses commonly seen by homeopaths in the clinic include recurrent infections (such as colds, tonsillitis, cystitis), skin conditions, menstrual and menopausal problems, chronic fatigue, migraine, and stress related symptoms such as anxiety and insomnia. Homeopathy can help support the body through times of change and development, through childhood into puberty. It can offer a gentle holistic approach to patients of all ages from pregnancy through to wise old age.
What to expect.
After booking an appointment a comprehensive health questionnaire will be sent out for you to complete. This will cover all areas of your past and present health conditions. Please bring this with you to the consultation along with any medication or supplements you are currently taking.
The initial consultation will last in the region of 2 hours. In this consultation I will be asking detailed questions about your current health, medical history, diet and lifestyle. Some of the questions may seem strange, but the important thing to remember with homeopathy is that it treats the individual in a holistic way, and so I am looking to understand how you experience your symptoms and how they affect your life, so that I can match you with the most appropriate medicine. You may be given the remedy at the consultation, or it may be sent out to you. You will be given advice on diet, lifestyle choices and possible referrals to other specialists.
