Widely Used For Over 200 Years
For over 200 years homeopathic treatment has focused on a system that is safe, nontoxic and free from side effects, which underpins the well-being of the many people who have and who continue to use it. The observations of hundreds of thousands of homeopaths and the satisfaction of millions of patients who have used homeopathy from around the world indicates the true success of this holistic medical system.
Homeopathy is a system of natural healthcare that is recognised by the World Health Organisation as the second largest system of medicine in the world. 1 in 8 people in the UK use homeopathy. There are three NHS homeopathic hospitals which have been part of the NHS since it began in 1948, treating tens of thousands of patients each year who are referred by GPs, PCTs and NHS specialists. The British Royal Family has been under homeopathic care since 1820 and there has always been a Royal Homeopathic Doctor. The post is currently held by Dr. Peter Fisher. The Queen carries her ‘black box’ of homeopathic remedies that includes 60 vials of homeopathic medicines with her on all her travels.
An Alternative Approach to Health
People are becoming increasingly disillusioned with conventional drug treatment and questioning the quality of their health care. They are searching for more natural ways to improve their health and are choosing homeopathy as a safe alternative. All homeopathic remedies are derived from natural sources and have been comprehensively tested on humans, not animals. This is a holistic system of medicine that looks at each person as a unique individual and shows respect for the body and its ability to keep the person in optimum health.
Homeopathy aims to understand the characteristics that make up you, the person. Essentially we all have illness at some point, but the way in which we experience this mentally, emotionally or physically is unique from one person to another, whether acute or chronic. In homeopathy, understanding these various aspects and how they link together enables us to treat a much more complete picture of you as an individual. Homeopathy looks beyond the surface to identify the root cause of the heatlh problem you are experiencing and is a gentle and effective approach that can be used alongside other forms of treatment, conventional or holistic.

Quote: “I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be a doctor. The doctors I knew as a very young child must have helped to plant the desire in me, when I was as young as five or six. One homeopathic physician, Dr. Justice Gage Wright, was a great model.
