Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathy is a medical practice and philosophy based on the idea that the body can be encouraged to heal itself naturally.  That is, if something can cause an illness in a healthy person, giving the person a very tiny (homeopathic) amount of the same substance or something similar could be helpful in stimulating the body's normal healing processes (e.g. coffee often causes insomnia but a homeopathic medicine produced from it can have the opposite effect and improve quality and length of sleep).  

Homeopathy was discovered in the late 1700’s by the famous German Physician Dr Samuel Hahnemann and is a medical practice that has been recognized by the NHS since 1948, in fact Liverpool had its own NHS Homeopathic Hospital at 42 -56 Hope street for almost 100 years. 

The popular treatment is ideal for treating and managing a whole range of common illnesses for all age groups.  The great advantage of using a homeopathic medicine is that is it a natural treatment without any side effects.   In addition, Homeopathy can often help a broad spectrum of physical & emotional illnesses, often when conventional treatment has not been completely successful.

The most famous advocate of Homeopathic medicine is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and the members of the Royal family, who still retain a Royal Homeopathic Physician to this day.

What conditions can Homeopathic Medicine treat?

The following conditions are often treated by Homeopathy: 

  • asthma
  • hay fever
  • ear infections
  • Chronic Sinusitis
  • Headaches and Migraines
  • rheumatism and arthritis
  • bereavement reactions
  • Backache and Sciatica
  • depression, stress and anxiety
  • allergies, such as food allergies
  • dermatitis (an allergic skin condition)
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Bloating and digestive disorders
  • high blood pressure (in conjunction with GP medication)


Generally, results can be very effective given a period of several months of continual treatment.
