Homeopathy in Preston

WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY?

Homeopathy is one of the most respected and widely used systems of alternative medicine in this country and it is used extensively worldwide. It is a system of medicine that aims to treat the whole person and not just their physical symptoms or disease.

Homeopathy works on the principle that spiritual, mental, emotional and physical factors are so completely inter-connected within a person that no single factor can be taken in isolation when treating that person. It recognises that we are all individuals with our own strengths and weaknesses and therefore when we become ill we react in our own unique way. The symptoms we produce are not seen as the cause of the disease, they are the body's way of warning us that all is not well. These symptoms we produce are the body's attempt to restore balance and harmony - to heal itself. Homeopathic medicines are used to encourage healing to take place from within.

WHERE CAN HOMEOPATHY HELP?

Homeopathy is a safe and effective method of treating all manner of acute and chronic complaints, both physical and emotional. Since the medicines are given in minute doses they are safe to use even during pregnancy and can be used for all age groups from the very young to the elderly.

Homeopathic treatment will not interfere with any other treatment you are having including conventional medicine. If you have a chronic or recurring condition or you have suffered from a number of acute illnesses recently it is advisable to consult a qualified Homeopath.

WHAT IS HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT LIKE?

The first consultation will usually take between 1 hour - 1.5 hours. Homeopaths use symptoms as helpful indicators to guide in treating you as an individual. Whereas in conventional medicine people diagnosed with the same condition will very often be given the same medication, in homeopathy the remedy given depends on many other factors about the person such as their emotional well-being, temperament, inherited and acquired characteristics and previous illness as well as their present complaint. The aim of the consultation is to get an overview, not only of your illness, but of you as a person, in order to prescribe the correct individualised remedy to treat you holistically.

Consultations are confidential.

A homeopathic remedy will be prescribed and supplied in tablet or liquid form, written instructions will accompany any course of medication prescribed.

Follow-up consultations are important to enable your reaction to the remedy to be assessed and future treatment to be arranged.
