Homeopathy

Homeopathy is one of the most widely used forms of medicine in the world today, because people are discovering the benefits of a system of medicine that is safe, effective and treats them as unique individuals. Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine that treats mental, emotional and physical illness.

Homeopathic medicines are chosen to treat the whole person, because homeopaths believe the mind and body operate as one, and you cannot treat one part of the body without affecting the whole. Medicines are chosen to fit all the characteristics of the patient, so physical disorders are considered in relation to the individual’s mental and emotional state.

Clinical research into homeopathic treatment has shown it to be effective in eczema, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, menopausal problems and migraine. (See below for more details about the research).

Visit the Homeopathy ‘Drop-in’ clinic for acute illnesses such as coughs, colds, tummy upsets, conjunctivitis, post-surgery and to speed up healing from accident and injury.

Homeopathy can be used effectively by everyone, from babies and children to adults, including women during pregnancy. Homeopathic medicines promote the body’s natural ability to heal. When prescribed appropriately, they are safe, non-toxic and non-addictive. They can be taken alongside drugs prescribed by your doctor and will not interfere with their beneficial action. As your condition improves, you may be able to safely reduce your conventional medication, thereby avoiding the unwanted effects that sometimes accompany the long-term use of drugs. NB: you should always consult with your GP before making changes to your conventional medication

Testimonials

“My first experience of homeopathy was pain relief for my first labour. Sam recommended the homeopathic remedies for me to take. The relief it gave was far better than the conventional pain relievers and since then I have continued to use homeopathic remedies for all of the family.

For my children, with Sam’s help and advice, we use remedies for teething, fevers, colic, chicken pox as well as for emotional and developmental challenges they come up against such as facing new environments and separation anxieties. Any scepticism about whether homeopathy works has been eliminated in my family - the placebo effect can't work on young children! And my children already appreciate how the remedies help them and are learning about when and how to take them.

One of the main benefits I have found from homeopathy is that it can eliminate the problem rather than just suppress it. My husband's hay fever - gone. My severe eczema - gone. As long as you are honest with your homeopath about your emotional and physical state then in my experience homeopathy has literally been a life changer.” Annabel, Brighton

"I have been going to Sam, the homeopath for over 4 years, and have nothing but praise for her. I initial went for menopause symptoms, and after a very in depth consultation she gave me tablets to take, all my hot flushes and night sweats have stopped!! I would advise any woman going through the menopause to go and see Sam." Liz Saltdean

"Homeopathy is a vital part of my healing journey. .......the remedies address the depth and range of human experience and symptomology as expressed through the mind, body and spirit. Samantha is sensitive, patient and compassionate and brings her skill and extensive study and knowledge to her practice of homeopathy." Maggie, Saltdean

'I was introduced to Homeopathy back in 1996; I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis in the spring of 1996 and not wanting to take the steroids prescribed I decided to find an alternative! For me that alternative was homeopathy and it worked, several years later a visit to my chest specialist showed no sign of the condition.

Moving to Brighton in 2007; I hadn't been to a homeopath for at least 5 years and to meet Sam was the re-kindling of my love for homeopathy. The treatments have seen me through some very difficult emotional occurrences and for me without my regular appointments I'd be at a loss.” Hana, Hove

Research excerpt:

A service evaluation at Bristol Homeopathic Hospital recorded the outcome of homeopathic treatment in over 6,500 consecutive patients over a 6 year period.[3] At follow-up, 70% of patients reported an improvement in their health, including 50% who reported ‘major improvement’. Patients were referred by their GP or hospital specialist after conventional options had failed or because conventional treatment was contraindicated.

• The best clinical results were seen in the treatment of children with eczema and asthma, and adults with inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, menopausal problems and migraine. Other conditions which improved after homeopathic treatment included arthritis, depression and chronic fatigue syndrome.

• Strengths of the study: The large sample size gives particular ‘weight’ to the findings.
