How is Homeopathy different to conventional treatment?
People have often asked me what are you treating first. The answer is ALL of you. Conventional medicine treats people as a series of unconnected parts, so you will be given different medicines for different symptoms. Homoeopaths see all symptoms as being connected, it is YOU who has the rheumatic pain, the stomach pain and the depression. It is my aim to see which thread weaves these symptoms together and then to select a remedy which will re-establish balance in your system.
The aim of homoeopathic treatment is to stimulate your own self-healing powers. The single dose of the remedy could be compared in effect to that of dropping a pebble into a pond, the ripples continue long after the initial action. This is obviously different to conventional medication where repeated doses are given to suppress symptoms, rather than the homoeopathic approach which seeks to treat the causative factors. Antibiotics kill bacteria, homoeopathy treats the ‘soil’ on which the bacteria grow so that they can no longer live there.
Do you still offer homeopathic supervision?
What about seeing a GP?
I frequently refer patients to discuss their symptoms with their GP.
Homeopathy is safe to use alongside conventional treatments and is ideal for pateints looking for a holistic approach to enhance their wellbeing.
