I love the ability of homeopathy to heal emotional and physical ailments.
This case was a really beautiful illustration of a good constitutional remedy in action. Here I would like to demonstrate how we find a remedy and show the response it has had a few weeks later
I met a lovely lady back in December who has been struggling with joint pain in her big toe, for 2 years she has suffered with ‘needle-like’ pains stabbing in her big toe joint on her left foot. Walking was unc
Conventional medicine would have you believe that eczema is a lifelong affliction, the cause is unknown and treatment offered is nothing but suppressive creams to mask the problem. Homeopathy takes a different viewpoint on eczema. Rather than seeing it as a stand alone condition, we see it as merely a symptom of an underlying imbalance. From the many cases of adult and infantile eczema I have seen and treated over the years I have learnt that there are a myriad of reasons why
I am becoming more and more alarmed at the amount of infants and children coming to see me who have been on steroids constantly over prolonged periods of time. Some of them several years. Mums on a cycle of repeat prescriptions dished out by a GP, without question. When we look at the NICE guidelines for corticosteroid use https://bnf.nice.org.uk/treatment-summary/topical-corticosteroids.html
we see that it is advised that even mild (0.1-2.5 %) topical steroids are only used
Are we really becoming a nation of neurotic mothers? This is a question I asked myself a lot 10 years ago, when my son was sick and yet no doctor would take the time to listen to me. He had an ongoing cough, every cold went to his chest, he was diagnosed with asthma initially, then went to bronchitis, he was given antibiotics & steroid inhalers, then diagnosed with atypical pneumonia, 3 more courses of antibiotics followed and still no improvement. Over my years in practice a
I’ve seen many children with Sensory Processing Disorder over the years. None were as severe as the case I am presenting now: Ellie’s Mum contacted me in July this year with concerns over her daughters SPD, emotional meltdowns and aggression. I have never met Ellie and both of our appointments have been carried out online via her Mum. Ellie is 6 years old. She is a very sensitive child who feels emotions very strongly. She is triggered by noises, over stimulated by screen tim
Regularly I am seeing and hearing of young children stuck in a pattern of low immunity and repeat infections. Chest infections, ear infections, infected eczema, tonsils etc etc.
An overwhelming majority of these children have something in common. Antibiotics. Several short courses for acute infections and sometimes long term low dose to ‘prevent’ a recurrence.
Shocking by the age of 3 a lot of children have had multiple doses for issues that could easily have been addressed
Firstly, Homeopathy is energy medicine because the remedies produced have no raw material remaining in them (or such negligible amounts as to have any real action). The key point about homeopathy is that it harnesses the energetic properties of a raw material (Plant, Animal, Mineral etc) to treat the cause of symptoms and imbalances of an individual. The remedies are diluted and potentised via a process of succussion, this process releases the energy of the raw material and h
Peeling back the layers The symptoms of dis-ease in the body build up over time, like layers of the onion. Pathological changes are afoot long before the body gives us signs and symptoms of these subtle imbalances. Symptoms are not causes of ill health, they are messages from the body. To merely treat symptoms of a condition does nothing to address its root cause, only palliate. Modern medicine in its function is a suppressive form of treatment. Many times it does not look fo
Anxiety in young adults seems to be on the rise, in fact anxiety in society in general is becoming more prolific. Why is this happening and what can you do? Modern life pressures are affecting the younger generation on a huge scale, referrals to CAMHS have escalated in recent years and for every anxiety case I see in young adults they tell me of a handful more of their peers who are under CAMHS and many more on anti-depressants. My most recent cases all have anxiety in common
