Frequently asked questions.

F.A.Q. plant6What if I’m already taking medication from my GP?
The remedies can be safely taken in conjunction with conventional medicine. A reputable homeopath would never advocate that a patient simply stop taking their prescribed medication, especially if you have taken the drugs over a significant period of time. It is important that you maintain the relationship you have with your GP.

Can I treat myself with homeopathic remedies?
You can use some remedies at home to treat first aid problems such as cuts, stings, minor burns and bruises. If you have treated yourself homeopathically, please inform your homeopath at your next consultation. It has become increasingly popular for parents to treat their children at home with homeopathic remedies for acute illnesses. A ‘frequently recurring problem’ potentially enters the realms of a chronic complaint and then it is best to seek advice from a qualified practitioner.

F.A.Q. plant3Do I have to believe in homeopathy for it to work for me?
No. If this was the case how would homeopathic vets treat sick animals. Furthermore, newborn babies and children respond very well to homeopathy. In these cases the patients have no idea what medication they are taking, so the placebo argument does not hold. It is also unlikely that you can truly believe in something until you have witnessed the results.

How long will the treatment last?
This is impossible to predict, as each 'individual' case is different. In fact, no healthcare practitioner would be able to provide an accurate timescale to treatment.

Are homeopathic remedies tested on animals?
No. Homeopathic remedies are only tested on healthy fully consenting adults (usually homeopaths themselves).

What does a registered member with the Society of Homeopaths mean?
As a registered homeopath I practice by the Society of Homeopaths Code of Ethics and Practice. I hold professional insurance and have passed stringent academic and clinical assessments.
