Here below are my most recent testimonials
Thought you'd like to know that I took your first treatment last night and as usual, it had an immediate effect. I slept all the way through from 11 to 6, amazing. The longest sleep I've had in memory.
So thank you, your remedies are brilliant.
I just wanted to let you know how amazed we are by the treatment you gave to Jacob & Izabella. Izabella’s has pretty much gone and Jacob’s are a 1000 x better than they were. It looks like it's clearing up.
Thanks so much. We will still keep our appointment for now but will cancel if we need to nearer the time.
I will be using homeopathic remedies in the future after seeing how well this worked.
"Last Monday we visited you at the Complementary Health Centre because Jaras had hay fever and we wanted to treat it with homeopathy. He is much better now after only a few days. Knowing Jaras will probably suffer from hay fever again next year, we will come back to you next year before the symptoms appear.”
"I have found your remedies of great help and I thank you for the advice and treatment"

Pertinent quotes from remarkable people
Dr John Demartini
They question the doctor because they want to understand their treatment and participate in it. They demand dignity, personhood and control, no matter what the course of the disease'
Bernie S. Siegel
Homeopathic remedies can be helpful for an enormous number of conditions.
Some of the most regularly treated conditions include:
asthma, eczema and psoriasis; digestive problems, including colitis and irritable bowel; women's hormonal imbalances, including headaches or migraines, heavy or irregular periods, fibroids, cysts and endometriosis; other menstrual problems, and the menopause.
Mental and emotional problems such as anxiety and depression are also commonly seen.

1. PMS Pre-menstrual syndrome
"Women can be, and many are, greatly affected by hormone fluctuations. Sometimes it gets to the point of feeling totally overwhelmed - as if for a time they have lost control of their life," says Christiane Northrup, MD, author of The Wisdom of Menopause and Women's Bodies Women's Wisdom. Dieting, stress, anxiety, depression - even exercise -are all among the factors that can create a hormonal imbalance. So there are plenty of opportunities for things to go awry.
How does Homeopathy help hormonal issues?
Homeopathy treats each case individually by addressing the whole person: the physical, the mental and the emotional. Do you find that the core emotional issue for you tends to worsen around your period or during hormonal changes? For example, if you have occasional feelings of low self confidence and depression or carry around resentment or anger, you may notice them heightening around the times of your hormonal changes. Your hormones may be intensifying these feelings, often a great deal, during these times. Homeopathy not only addresses the imbalance of your hormones, but heals the underlying mental or emotional pain that you may be harboring underneath. This phenomenal system creates a sense of equilibrium by healing on a deep level, rather than just treating or suppressing outward symptoms. With the correct homeopathic remedy, the body and mind will regain the vitality and balance it once had without the use of chemicals or guesswork on our systems.
How does a homeopathy consultation work?
Different people react in different ways to the same illness and in order to find the correct remedy I will need to know not only physical symptoms but also as much as possible about you and how your symptoms affect you.
After your first consultation, which will take about one hour, I will prescribe a remedy for you.
How quickly you will be cured depends very much on what sort of illness you have. A complaint you have had for a long time will not normally disappear overnight, other conditions often improve rapidly. You will usually be asked to come back for a follow-up consultation 2-6 weeks after the first consultation. This and subsequent appointments will last half an hour.
Whether your symptoms are mainly physical or emotional, or a combination of both, you will be asked to give as much information about yourself as possible at the consultation. As well as all the details of your current complaints, your homeopath will ask you to talk about your personality, lifestyle, moods, reactions to different situations, and your relationships, fears and dreams. You will also be asked about your reaction to foods, the environment and the weather. For example: which climate suits you or bothers you most? Do certain climates aggravate your physical symptoms? Do you have allergies? Your homeopath will need to know about your family's medical history as well as your on personal health history. When you talk about your symptoms you need to go into as much detail as you can, starting with the time you first experienced changes in your health. Towards the end of the consultation the homeopath analyses all the information you have given them and tries to find the best remedy for you as an individual, to help stimulate your body to resolve all your current symptoms. You will be prescribed a remedy at the consultation, or else your remedy will be sent to you in the post shortly afterwards, with instructions.
The fundamental principle of homeopathy
The underlying principle of homeopathy is "like may be cured by like." This refers to the central philosophy that a substance which can produce symptoms in a healthy person, can cure those same symptoms in a person who is ill.
Homeopathy is a gentle and holistic system of medicine which works by stimulating the body’s own healing resources to overcome disease and bring about a lasting recovery. It recognises that all the symptoms of disease are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the person who needs treatment, not the disease.
