What is it?
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that focuses on treating the individual as a whole and not just the symptoms of the disease.
The medicine is made largely from plants and minerals which are rendered potent by using a very small amount of the active substances in a highly diluted form which is then shaken (succussed).
Homeopathic medicine is safe, non-toxic and non-addictive.
As homeopaths we are like detectives investigating how you experience your dis-ease to find a medicine that is most similar to your individual symptoms.
The initial consultation lasts between 1-2 hours. We will look at any health issues you may have, the symptoms and how they affect your life. We will also look at yours and your family’s past medical history. Where appropriate we will also look at your lifestyle and behaviour patterns as these can sometimes keep us trapped in states of dis-ease.
A follow up appointment isthen made 4-5 weeks later.
