Self Help

Homeopathy can be a catalyst for restoring good health from within, but it works best when we are actively involved in making our own healthcare decisions for ourselves and our families, in collaboration with our homeopath and other healthcare providers.  In many instances, minor acute symptoms (cold’s, flu’s, fevers, bumps, bruises, sprains, strains, nausea, minor food poisoning, small cuts, grazes and burns etc) can all be treated successfully with homeopathy at home using a homeopathic first aid kit and a small booklet.  For more information about how to use homeopathy at home, please come along to one of my workshops.  As well as homeopathy, there are many other things we can do to improve and maintain our health at it’s optimum level.  Here are some things you might like to consider trying for yourself or finding out more about.

Homeopathy for Pregnancy and Childbirth

Homeopathy is ideal for women in our childbearing years because it’s a gentle system of medicine that is safe, non-toxic and non addictive – yet effective.  Unfortunately, during pregnancy, too many of us suffer the discomfort of minor complaints rather than seek treatment because we are concerned about the side effects on ourselves and our unborn children from many common drugs.  However it is not always necessary to suffer through pregnancy, as homeopathic medicines and other natural methods are available to relieve symptoms and best of all they are beneficial for you and your child… more

Homeopathy for Breastfeeding Problems
Problems that can make it difficult for women to breastfeed successfully include: milk supply issues, depression or ‘the baby blues’ that often comes on with the milk ‘let down’, painful cracked nipples, engorgement (very full breasts), blocked milk ducts and mastitis.

Homeopathy for Babies and Children

Homeopathy is ideal for babies and children as it is a gentle yet effective system of medicine.  The highly diluted natural substances used in homeopathic medicines are safe to use in the very young, including newborn babies.  By acting as a catalyst to their developing immune systems, homeopathy can effectively raise the immunity of your child(ren) to help them deal with illnesses or other problems as they grow.  Plus, on the practical side, the mildly sweet pills, powders or liquids are easy to dispense, being more palatable than many conventional medicines and without the side effects or risk of long term dependency.

Resources for Parents (and parents to be)
Information on preconception, conception, pregnancy, morning sickness, birth, breastfeeding, fevers, vaccines, teething, childhood diseases and more – because learning to take care of our selves and our young ones is a steep learning curve.

Fever – your friend not your foe
Nursing ourselves and our families through a fever can be an anxious time for many of us.  The first thing most people do is reach for some pills (antipyretics) such as paracetamol, asparin, tylenol or ibuprofin thinking that they will bring down the fever and may prevent febrile convulsions following a high temperature.  This is now widely recognized however as a harmful misconception

Vaccine awareness
Given the increasing number of vaccines offered to adults and children for an increasing number of ‘epidemics’, many of us are seeking alternative information about vaccines.  First and foremost we need to ask:

  • Are they effective?
  • Are they safe?
  • Are they thoroughly and independently tested? and
  • What are the risks of getting the diseases the vaccines are supposed to prevent and how else could they be prevented or treated?

Homeopathy can support you and your family, whatever your position regarding vaccines is, and whatever stage of life you are at.

Autism Recovery
Every 15 seconds a child is diagnosed with autism somewhere in the world.  Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) currently affects 1 in 100 children in the US and Europe and in the UK, the rate may be as high as 1 in 56 children.  Neither the cause of, nor a cure for ASD is clear, although ASD is often linked to vaccine damage.  Don’t despair however, because on this page are many wonderful recovery stories and information about the use of homeopathy in autism spectrum disorders... more

Holistic Dentistry
The oral cavity is a very important, very neglected and massively abused area with respect to health

(Dr Tom Nyerges, Holistic Dentist).  If you are considering having any dental work done, especially root canal work or any work with silver / mercury / metal fillings, or if you have any chronic disease at all, please have a look at the information on this page – it could change your life.

Yoga is a science that is over 5,000 years old. It is unrivalled as a means of improving bodily health, strength and suppleness, for releasing stress, improving concentration, balance, determination and calming the mind.  And to reward you for all your hard work practicing yoga, I offer £20 off the first appointment for all regular yoga practitioners (any form of yoga practiced at least once a week).  Since homeopathy benefits most those who take an active role in their health, just the fact that you are doing yoga regularly already makes my job that much easier!
