Frequently Asked Questions
What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a scientific system of healing discovered in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, a medical doctor and scientist who was disillusioned with the techniques employed by the medical profession of his time. Homeopathy employs the principle of ‘Like Cures Like’ also known as the Law of Similars. The word homeopathy is derived from the Greek words meaning ‘similar suffering’. Homeopathy treats illness with a substance which, when taken by a healthy person, produces symptoms similar to those experience by the person who is ill.
What sort of conditions can homeopathy treat?
The prescription of a homeopathic remedy is based on a collection of symptoms, not on the name of the presenting disease. However, from my clinical experience I have found that homeopathy has been proved particularly useful in the following condititions:

Arthritis Cold & Flu Eczema IBS Psoriasis Phobias ME,
Asthma Chronic Pain Hayfever Skin Conditions Relationships Menopause Polycystic Ovaries

Can I have other complementary therapies whilst having homeopathic treatment?
Some therapies may have an effect with your homeopathic treatment. From my clinical experience I would advise you to talk to your homeopathic practitioner if you were considering using other therapies alongside homeopathy.
DID YOU KNOW?
It is well known that the British Royal Family is a strong advocate of homeopathy. Queen Victoria was a known devotee of homeopathy. During one of the seven assassination attempts made against her, she received a massive bruise on the head from a blow as she rode in an open top-carriage. In her diary for that day she wrote... "immense bruise on the right side of my head...I instructed the coachman to drive home where I went upstairs to put arnica on my poor head". That evening the Queen's doctors allowed her to attend the Royal Opera House as arranged which bears testimony to the wonderful effect arnica can have on bruises as well as shock and concussion.
