HOMEOPATHY IN BRIEF

Homeopathy is a system of natural medicine, founded on solid principles, which has existed for over 200 years. The Law of Similars is the guiding principle of Homeopathy.  It states that those symptoms a substance can cause, it can also cure.  Hippocrates, the most celebrated physician of Ancient Greece, and known as the Father of Medicine, was probably the first to announce the Law of Similars, over two thousand years ago.

Homeopathic remedies, which come from plant, mineral and animal sources, act by stimulating the natural healing mechanisms of the body. They do not cause harmful side-effects.

It is the person who is treated,  not the disease. With its emphasis on treating the whole person, physically and emotionally, we get to the root of the problem.  Physical health, emotional wellbeing and greater overall wellbeing results. Homeopathy is a positive, life-affirming system of medicine.

Homeopathy is suitable for people of all ages with all kinds of illness, acute and long-term, both physical, emotional and behavioural. Homeopathy speeds recovery after accidents and injuries, it assists women in pregnancy and childbirth, newborn infants, and is ideal for young people through their childhood and teen years, helping to establish good health for life.

ABOUT RACHEL LOW

I have been practising Homeopathy for 23 years. I enjoy working with people of all ages, and find my work really rewarding. It was after the birth of my son that, like all parents, I needed to make decisions about his healthcare, and soon discovered how effective Homeopathy can be. After studying for 4 years at the College of Classical Homœopathy in Devon, I returned to Yorkshire in 1989 to start my practice.  I am a member of the Society of Homeopaths, the largest organisation representing professional homeopaths in Europe, and I continue to study with world-renowned homeopaths.

THE CONSULTATION

We discuss your symptoms in detail, your medical history and family medical history, your approach to life, any stresses past and present which may have contributed to this illness, your reactions to the environment, your diet and lifestyle. I allow 2 hours for the first appointment and 1 hour for subsequent appointments.


THE REMEDIES

rachel Low - homoeopathyThe remedies come from the natural world, from plant, mineral and animal substances, and are prepared at specialized homeopathic pharmacies in various dilutions, or potencies. Being so dilute, very little of the original substance is needed.

These liquid potencies are then used to medicate sucrose pillules, which are easy and pleasant to take, or the remedy may be further diluted in water. They contain no synthetic chemicals and have no side-effects.

Q. How often will I need to come for treatment?

A. Usually I recommend that you attend monthly for 3 months, then as needed. For long-term complaints, you would benefit from treatment every 2-3 months for a year or more, then just occasionally (maybe once or twice a year) to keep up your vitality.

Q. Can I continue to take conventional medicine alongside homeopathic treatment?

A. Yes. After a while you may be able to wean off the conventional medication.

Q. Is there proof that homeopathy really helps, other than through the placebo effect?

A. Everyone who uses homeopathy appropriately will tell you that homeopathy definitely helps. There is research to show that it is effective, but the randomly controlled trials used in conventional medicine do not suit the homeopathic model, because the remedy is chosen according to the person's whole picture of symptoms, emotional and physical: it is an individualised prescription. Babies respond well, pets and farm animals too.

The Society of Homeopaths website at www.homeopathy-soh.org is a useful source of information if you would like to know more.
