WHAT IS HOMOEOPATHY?
Homoeopathy is a gentle yet very effective system of medicine, which works through stimulating the body’s own healing powers. It was developed over 200 years ago by a German doctor called Samuel Hahnemann.
By now it is a widely used alternative health therapy and in some countries has equal status as conventional treatment.
It is a holistic therapy and therefore mental, emotional as well as physical symptoms are considered an important part of a person’s state of health.
Homoeopathy works according to the laws of similars. This means, that a substance that can cause a particular symptom can, administered in minute doses also help treat that particular symptom. For example the remedy allium cepa (common onion) is used to treat hay fever with burning weeping eyes, the very same symptom that occurs when someone is slicing an onion.

WHAT CAN HOMOEOPATHY TREAT?
Homoeopathy can be used to treat acute as well as chronic physical, mental and emotional complaints. It causes no side effects, is not addictive and can be used on its own or in conjunction with other therapies and conventional medicine.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A CONSULTATION?
During the first consultation, which lasts approximately 1-1½ hours I will form a well-rounded picture of you as an individual, which will help me to find the right remedy that fits your individual case.
Additionally to asking about your symptoms, when they started, what makes them better or worse or if you’ve noticed other patterns, I will also ask about various aspects of your emotional and physical make-up, your life style and your and your family’s medical history.
Follow-up consultations are usually spaced at 4-6 week intervals and last about 30-45 minutes. They are important so that I can evaluate how you reacted to the remedies prescribed and decide on the follow-up prescription.
