Frequently Asked Questions

How does homeopathy work?

The exact mechanism is not known. Your body has a natural ability to heal itself, which we can see demonstrated when simple cuts or broken bones or infections heal. Homeopathic treatment is intended to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal and strengthen an individual’s vitality.

What if I’m on other treatment?

Homeopathy can be used alongside conventional medicine, and you will not be advised to stop medication. Homeopathy’s aim is to restore health, rather than just alleviate symptoms.

Should I stop my medication?

No, you should continue your relationship with your medical practioner/GP. You should not stop any medication without consulting your doctor.

Will it help if I’m thinking of IVF?

Will my health insurer cover the costs?

Many health insurance companies cover the cost of homeopathic treatment - some may require a referral from your GP.  Please check with your health insurer. We are both registered with RSHom, and also Claire is a Registered Midwife, most insurance companies recognise these qualifications.

How successful is homeopathy?

We individualise our approach and individually tailor our treatment plans. Some problems such as PCOS are extremely successful, to date we have a 100% record. Problems involving trauma or grief are also extremely successful. More complex cases where there are several layers of problem may take longer, and some individuals just take longer for their body to achieve balance.  It is extremely rare there has been no changes whatsoever in the first 2-3 months. 

Do vitamins really matter?

Yes! Although you may have a good diet, vitamins in a therapeutic state are very important to correct problems. The way vitamins are manufactured makes a huge difference on how well they are absorbed and used in the body. A good vitamin should be in a “food state”, that is recognised by the body as if it is food therefore fully absorbed and used. If the body doesnt recognise the vitamin and use it in this way it can pass directly through the body and not be of benefit. We recommend Cytoplan, although Higher Nature and Solgar are also good makes.
