Homeopathy is a system of medicine based on treating the individual with highly diluted substances, which triggers the body’s natural system of healing. Following an in-depth consultation to find out as many details of the person’s symptoms as possible, I will match the most appropriate medicine to the patient.
Homeopathic medicines work on the principle of “like cures like” - that is, a substance that would cause symptoms in a healthy person is used to cure those same symptoms in illness. For example, coffee is known to induce sleeplessness, and so a homeopath may prescribe the homeopathic remedy coffea (made from coffee) to a person suffering from insomnia.
But homeopathy also recognises that health is not a "one-size-fits-all" endeavour, and that each person is unique, so the treatment and remedy is tailored to your unique and specific symptoms and characteristics. For example, there are literally dozens of homeopathic remedies that could be useful in treating a case of asthma, but the important thing is to find the single remedy that matches your case of your asthma, and its accompanying symptoms.
What can be treated?
Homeopathy is useful in treating a huge variety of complaints, on both a physical and emotional level. From eczema to depression, and from allergies to ADHD, homeopathy helps!

I've put together a list of some interesting, informative and (often) eye-opening facts about homeopathy. Follow the link below to find out more.
Homeopathic remedies are unique medicines, drawn from the plant, mineral and animal worlds. During a process known as potentisation, the original substance is diluted to such a degree that little or none of it remains in the final remedy, hence they become a form of energy medicine.
The remedies work by gently boosting the natural energy of the body, and are very safe, even for pregnant and sensitive patients, as well as young children and babies. Healing begins from within your body, strengthening your health and immune system, without any danger of damaging side effects. There is no danger of addiction or toxicity, and they can be safely used alongside most conventional medicines and other complementary therapies.
