Homeopathy is a form of natural and energy/vibrational medicine that promotes the body to heal itself, working on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual planes, so can, therefore, be used safely alongside conventional medicine.

What is homoeopathy?

Homoeopathy was founded by a German physician by the name of Samuel Hahnemann over 200 years ago. It is a gentle, deeply healing system of energy medicine that works at many levels, including physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It is totally safe, non-toxic and non-addictive and does not cause any side effects. It cures from inside out, helping the body heal itself and restoring the Vital Force. It brings about a profound sense of well-being before it begins to cure the symptoms. It works on both acute and chronic diseases.

How are the remedies made?

The remedies are made from plants, minerals, earth salts, animal tissue and even poisons. There are approximately 3,000 remedies. Remedies are prepared by strict methods laid down by Hahnemann and involve serially diluting and succussing (shaking) each remedy to potentise it. The more a remedy is diluted and succussed the more powerful is its curative action, even when there are no longer any molecules of the original substance in the remedy. “When there is a resonance between the remedy vibration and the patient’s symptoms, the structure of the water changes and improves all the chemical reactions involved in bodily processes.” (Gray, B. (2002). Homeopathy: Science or Myth?). We are now getting a much clearer idea of how homoeopathy works the more we understand the principles of quantum mechanics.

What is the homoeopathic interview like?

This normally takes about one and half to two hours and involves obtaining precise information about the patient, including physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual changes. Important to us is working out the cause of each symptom and what makes the condition better or worse. Other important information is regarding the general symptoms, i.e. the physical environment in which the patient generally feels better or worse (temperature, rain, wind, thunderstorms, food preferences and aversions, perspiration, menstruation, sleep and body features). We are also looking for anything that is strange, rare or peculiar and any key note symptoms. All this information then gives us a unique symptom picture which we then have to match to a remedy picture.

How many homeopathic remedies will I be given?

You will normally only be given one remedy at a time. I work with the 5th and 6th editions of Hahnemann’s Organon and will, therefore, ask you to take the remedies in water, succussing each dose.

How long before I see any change in symptoms?

This very much depends on the type of complaint the patient comes with. Some complaints are cured within seconds; others can take days, weeks or even months. Reaction can be hindered by maintaining causes not being eliminated, suppressive drug treatments, anti-doting the remedy, the strength of the vital force and the degree of degeneration of the tissues and organs.

When do I come back for a follow up?

I normally recommend between three weeks and six weeks, depending on the original complaint.

What if I don’t feel any better?

Once we have ascertained that it is not because of a maintaining cause or the remedy has been anti-doted then it could be the remedy is wrong. If this is the case then I will re-evaluate the symptoms and another remedy will be given.

Will it harm me if the wrong remedy is given?

No. It will have no effect, so there is nothing to worry about.
