Homeopathy offers a safe and gentle treatment for a wide range of conditions and can benefit people of all ages. Homeopathic remedies are made from a variety of sources, the majority coming from plants and minerals which means that as well as being safe, they are highly effective and ideal for the whole family.
The remedies aid the body’s natural ability to self-heal. Symptoms of illness are viewed as a distress call from the body and regardless of the illness, the mind and body can be healed by the correct homeopathic remedy. Homeopathy is based on a ‘like cures like’ principal, which means that if a substance has the ability to produce a symptom in a healthy person, it also has the ability to cure that symptom.
The substances are made into homeopathic medicines or ‘remedies’ by a process of repeated dilution and vibration which magnifies the healing power of the substance and removes any toxicity. This makes homeopathic remedies non-addictive, and free from toxic side effects, so they can be used safely and effectively even in babies and the elderly.
Many scientists wonder how these remedies could possibly have any effect as the substance is often diluted until there is no original material left, but there is a substantial amount of evidence from clinical trials, corroborating the experience of homeopaths for the last 200 years which shows that homeopathy is extremely effective. The correct remedy seems to impart the specific information the body requires to activate its self-healing mechanisms.
Homeopathy For Children
Children respond wonderfully to homeopathic remedies which are safe to use, even for newborn babies. In fact, treating my newborn daughter with homeopathy is what finally converted my husband. She had thrush in her mouth from birth and he refused to let me treat it, instead relying on conventional medicine. Though the large white patch on her tongue had never appeared to bother her, three weeks later it was no better and so he finally agreed I could have a go! Within hours it was gone gently and naturally, and as a 'side effect' she also was suddenly happy to be put down to sleep and didn't have to always be rocked to sleep and gently placed down, showing my skeptical husband that homeopathy works, not on the physical symptom but also on a much deeper level.
Most of the most common childhood illnesses can be quickly and effectively treated. I have treated cases such as chronic constipation (which was eased within a few hours to the distraught parents delight), bedwetting and night terrors as well as far more serious conditions such as autism and even cerebral palsy (Read the story).
Bring your child with you, even though he or she may be too young to talk to me, or even want to sleep through the whole thing! We will talk about all aspects of their illness and behavior and from that I will choose the most suitable remedy to help them. Children's consultations can take up to an hour, but I have toys for younger children to play with and most children thoroughly enjoy the experience.
Ongoing homeopathic treatment of a child not only improves their health but gives them a strong immune system and vitality.
