What is Homeopathy?

It is a tried and tested form of medicine based on a specific set of principles regarding, health, illness, cure and pharmacolgy that stimulates the body's unique self-healing properties through highly diluted remedies made from natural substances. Therefore, there are no side effects nor toxins and it is therefore suitable for any age or energy level.

What conditions can be treated homeopathically?

Homeopathy is not specific to a particular illness but is directed at the underlying state of the person suffering that condition. By addressing their state, the appropriately chosen remedy addresses the illness. It holistically treats the person rather than the disease therefore can be applicable to any chronic degenerative disease, inflammation, systemic imbalances and emotional disturbances.

Can remedies be taken with orthodox medicine?

Yes. Many people who begin homeopathic treatment are already taking conventional medicine. Often their goal is to ultimately reduce or eliminate their medication. With the correct treatment plan and remedies this is sometimes possible with guidance and agreement from their GP.

How long does it take to work?

Homeopathy can work in seconds or it can take years. An appropriate constitutional remedy will begin to alleviate symptoms fairly quickly sometimes within days and then continue to have a positive effect over months and years. The severity and length of the problem often influences the recovery period. It all depends on how closely the persons's symptoms match the remedy picture characteristics to trigger that healing.
