Homeopathy is all about gentle and holistic healing. The difference between homeopathy and other forms of treatment is that homoeopathy does not treat the disease but the person who is experiencing the illness – you. Homeopathic remedies use plant, mineral or animal substances to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself and strengthen overall constitution.
You can expect a visit to a homeopath to be run between one hour and one hour and a half. During your initial visit a homeopath will look to paint your ‘Patient picture’, uncovering details of past and present symptoms, both physical and mental-emotional. The better the homeopath understands you as a whole individual patient, the better they can match the most similar ‘Remedy picture’ for your condition from the homeopathic pharmacy (Materia Medica).
You might visit a homeopath for hay fever, bronchitis, digestive complaints, PMT, menopausal flushes, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, rheumatoid arthritis, urinary tract infections, candidiasis, migranes, skin diseases or paediatric problems. Homeopathic remedies are specially prepared and can be used in conjunction with other medicines or treatments, and in the treatment of pregnant women, babies, children and nursing mothers’.

Homeopaths use specially prepared medicines, derived from natural substances and many commonly occurring allergens. These medicines are utilised to assist in re-training the body and reducing allergic reactions or sensitivities to a wide range of substances. Homeopathy can be very useful during an acute hay-fever episode to reduce the symptoms, and also be used to reduce sensitivity and avoid future reactions.

|Detox||Using a system developed by French homeopath and medical doctor Leon Vannier, homeopaths utilise the ‘drainage’ method to stimulate the organs of elimination and detoxify the body. After a thorough health assessment, homeopaths identify medicines that are specifically indicated for each person based on their unique symptoms of disease or toxicity. Utilising naturally occurring substances which are specially prepared into homeopathic potencies, the drainage method may be used as a stand-alone therapy when toxicity is indicated, at the start of a course of treatment to support the body’s move toward health, or during a course of treatment when symptoms indicate a need for greater detoxification.|
