I get asked lots of questions on quite a few subjects. Here a few of the most popular questions I am asked, if you need advice or have your own questions please get in touch and I will do my best to help. Feel free to contact me here or on 0800 002 9506.
What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that helps treat a disease condition by using small amounts of an agent or drug that will produce the same symptoms as the disease when given to a healthy person.
How does homeopathy differ from conventional medicine?
In addition to promoting good health, homeopathic preparations and nutritional supplements are often used as direct substitutes for conventional drugs. In most cases, these natural medicines promote the healing process, rather than suppressing symptoms.
Is homeopathy safe? Does it have any side effects?
Yes, homeopathy is safe, because the remedies are formulated from very small amounts of active ingredients. These remedies are derived from nature and natural substances, hence they will not have any side effects whatsoever when used judicially. Also, homeopathy works on energy levels and the body’s bio-regulating pathways.
Can I take homeopathic remedies along with other medicines?
Yes, these remedies can be safely taken in conjunction with other medicines. You should always consult your homeopath or doctor before taking any remedies, though.
Can children, pregnant women, or nursing women be treated with homeopathy?
Homeopathic remedies are non-addictive and have no dangerous side effects. Children can be safely treated with homeopathy when they are under the supervision of a homeopath or relevant consultant.
The active ingredients in homeopathic remedies are so finely dosed that mother and child are not stressed by the use of almost all remedies (the rare exceptions carry a statement on the packaging). Due to the effectiveness, good compatibilities and low risk of side effects, pregnant or nursing women can be treated with homeopathy under the supervision of a consultant homeopath.
Can homeopathy treat my allergies?
Yes, homeopathy is highly effective in the treatment of allergies and fully capable of stimulating the body to heal to the point of complete relief from all allergy symptoms. These remedies act on hay fever by correcting the imbalance in the body and enhancing its own powers of resistance. Our nutritionist and homeopath can give you the best advice about your allergy treatment.
Are there supplements I can take to stop me feeling tired all the time?
Yes, there are supplements you can take to stop you feeling constantly tired. Sometimes, tiredness is due to certain medical conditions and/or lifestyle issues. You should always consult your doctor, pharmacist or homeopath regarding these situations. You can take certain supplements such as ginkgo, Co-Q10, or ginseng on the advice of your consultant. A person should be taking a daily multivitamin to ensure they are getting the minimum amount of nutrients the body requires.
