Can homeopathy help me?
Homeopathy can help with a wide range of illnesses and issues from chronic problems such as allergies, thyroid problems, hormonal balance, eczema and anxiety to acute conditions such as colds, fever, sunstroke, bruises and sprains.
But wait, isn’t homeopathy a load of made up bollocks?
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that has been practised for hundreds of years and is used by millions of people worldwide with great results. I know you might be wanting something a bit more concrete than anecdotes from suspiciously hippy types, so I would encourage you to look at the FAQ section from the Homeopathy Research Institute here> https://www.hri-research.org/resources/homeopathy-faqs/ because they answer all the questions I am often asked, with links to scientific studies that you might find interesting.
Are Homeopathic remedies safe?
Homeopathy works in harmony with your body to bring it back in to balance and it does so in a gentle way. It is safe and non-toxic and without side-effects. It is suitable for use during pregnancy, breastfeeding and by babies and children. Homeopathic remedies will not interfere with any other allopathic medicines that you are taking.
Where can I buy homeopathic remedies?
If you’re looking for remedies for acute/first-aid conditions then Holland & Barretts on the UK high street sells Nelsons homeopathic remedies; your local independent health store may also sell remedies too.
If purchasing online then the Helios website is fantastic and you can also purchase certain Helios remedies from Amazon with Prime delivery if you need something in a hurry. (Helios staff are also super helpful and lovely!)
Ainsworths and Weleda are also reputable brands that are fairly widely available here in the UK.
What if I miss my appointment?
Provided you give at least 12 hours notice, you may reschedule your appointment to another available slot without incurring any extra fees. If you do not give at least 12 hours notice (unless there are genuine extenuating circumstances) then you will have to pay for another appointment. Sadly missed appointments hurt everyone and this policy is here to make sure that nobody’s time is wasted. (This policy is also pointed out as part of the paperwork provided to you when booking your appointment)
What if the remedy you have given me doesn’t seem to be doing anything?
Well, firstly check out this page to give you more of an idea of the signs to look out for. Also consider that there are over 4,000 different remedies and sometimes with chronic conditions that have years and many layers of unpicking to work though it can be tricky to find just the perfect match, or the first remedy given might deal with one layer, but then after that you might need a different one to finish off the job. This is why follow-up appointments are really important, they help me assess if the remedy is working as it should be and whether we need to change it.
