Understanding Homeopathy

The basic principle of homeopathy is that ‘like cures like’. So homeopaths believe that a substance that can cause an illness is also able to cure it.

The active ingredients are given in a highly diluted form to avoid toxicity and side effects. Because of this dilution, homeopathic remedies are virtually 100% safe.

Homeopathy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions. It can help to repair any damage which the body has the potential to repair, and help restore the body’s balance for recovery and health.

What Can Homeopathy Help?
Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine and so every patient could benefit from therapy. However, it is often used to treat chronic conditions such as asthma, eczema and arthritis.

Homeopathy can also treat:

  • Tiredness and chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Period pain, menstrual irregularity and menopausal problems
  • Bowel disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel diseases including Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis
  • Recurrent coughs and colds and ear, nose and throat infections
  • Repeated urine infections, cystitis and irritable bladder
  • Stress, depression and anxiety.

Some remedies are available over the counter in many pharmacies, health food shops and through the Good Health Centre. Your homeopath can advise you on the use of these remedies to treat first aid problems such as bites, burns, bruises and stings.

The Homeopathy Treatment

Working on the principle that ‘like treats like’, homeopaths treat an illness with a medicine which could produce similar symptoms in a healthy person. An example is raw onion which makes people’s eyes water and noses run. A homeopathic remedy made from onion (allium cepa) is used to treat patients with watery eyes and runny noses caused by colds or hay fever.

The active ingredients in homeopathic remedies are given in highly diluted form to avoid toxicity and side effects. Because of this dilution, they are virtually 100% safe.

The remedies are prepared from the natural environment: from plants, minerals and animals. During preparation they are repeatedly diluted and shaken to reduce the potential to poison and cause harm.

Homeopaths have observed that the longer this preparation continues and the more diluted the remedy, the greater its potential to cure quickly and harmlessly. Homeopathic remedies have been extensively tested (known as ‘proving’) on healthy humans so that there is a detailed picture of each remedy’s mental, physical and emotional effects.

What To Expect

At your first appointment your homeopathy practitioner will take your full medical history and explore your health problems, including your diet, sleep and moods throughout the day. At the end of the consultation you will usually be prescribed the right homeopathic remedy for you.

After taking your remedy, it’s possible that your symptoms may get a little worse for a short time. Homeopaths believe this shows that the remedy is starting to have an effect. You may also develop a cold or a rash, or notice a discharge which is an indication that your system is cleansing itself.

Keep a diary of any major symptoms or changes in your condition to discuss with your homeopath during your follow-up appointment.

Cautions & Care

Homeopathy is an extremely safe and established system of medicine which works well with conventional medical treatments. However, it is always important to inform your homeopath of any medications you take or treatments you are having.

Some homeopaths believe that some medical treatments and strong smelling substances such as aromatherapy oils and minty toothpastes may affect some homeopathic remedies. Please tell your homeopath if you use any products like this.

Back Pain

If you have back pain, whether new or long-term, you know how it can interfere with your daily life.

Knee Pain

If you have knee pain, you’re not alone. Frequent knee pain affects around one in four adults.

Neck Pain

From a wry neck to arthritis, muscle spasm to a ‘dowager’s hump’, necks are a common source of pain.

Shoulder Pain

Under normal circumstances, the shoulder has the greatest mobility of any of the body’s joints. But when something goes wrong, it can mean pain, limitation and frustration.

Sciatica

Sciatica refers to pain that runs from the low back into the buttock and down the back of the thigh. It may go below the knee and into the foot.

Heel Pain

There are many causes of heel pain. These include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinosis, heel spurs, and stress fractures.

I had an appointment for my 16 week old baby and for myself with Simon Barron. My baby has been having some feeding issues and trapped wind. Instantly I felt heard, and in safe hands. Simon is so knowledgeable and explained why we might be having these problems & why the baby might be a bit tense in certain areas. It all made sense finally. Simon was gentle and so good with my baby (he really enjoyed it and was all smiles!) Simon taught us exercises and techniques to try at home with the baby and they are already helping him. I’m so grateful we found Simon and will be returning frequently. Don’t fret if you’re wondering about doing this for your baby, it’s 100% worth it!

Simon and Josh are two of the best Osteopaths I’ve seen at Good Health for my sport injuries. They have helped me prepare for Hyrox, treated running and cycling injuries. I’d highly recommend them both!

I have used the Good Health centre over many years. Seb, one of the osteopaths, helps me maintain a quality of life that I wouldn't otherwise enjoy. He is always patient and kind, and treats me with respect. The receptionists are always cheerful, and make one feel welcome. I would highly recommend.
