In recent years there has been enormous growth in the use of Homeopathy and in fact Homeopathy is used by over 500 million people worldwide. Homeopathy is the second most widely used form of medicine for primary care in the world today. In the UK alone, an estimated 6 million people currently use Homeopathy with great success and many private health care insurance companies provide cover for Homeopathic Treatment.
This is partly as a result of the increased interest in complementary therapies due to worries about environmental problems such as chemicals in food, and anxieties about the side-effects and failings of many conventional drugs and treatments.
In addition, we like to be treated as individuals and want our practitioners to take time to listen to us.
Homeopathic treatment is individual and considers a wide range of aspects of your condition - physical, mental and emotional states, personality traits, physical features, the effects of a variety of environmental influences, lifestyle, patterns of disease within your family, and relationships. The range of conditions that can be treated is limitless and you are treated as the unique being that you are.
Homeopathy considers the complaints of a patient in totality. You are considered as a whole person, not in body parts, so you don't need to visit ten different specialists for your ten different
body parts. Homeopathy aims to provide a high standard of care for those wishing to improve and maintain their health and well-being. My wish is to help you achieve freedom from limitations in your life and to reach a level of health where you are no longer dependant on medicine or therapy.
Homeopathy is safe as the remedies act by stimulating your own defence mechanism and healing system. They do not have any chemical action, so they do not have the potential to cause any sustained damage. Homeopathy is a system of healing which uses the body's own powerful capacity to heal itself. The remedies stimulate that process. It can be used at all stages of life and is an excellent aid throughout pregnancy, birth, childhood illnesses, puberty, menopause and old age.
Homeopathic treatment is good value. With proper treatment, your immediate complaints improve, but you also get a decrease in your susceptibility to disease, so that general health improves. In the long run, there is better health and fewer medical consultations. Homeopathy is a long-term solution to maintaining a good standard of health, not a quick fix. It is much better to be treated for both the cause of the illness and its symptoms, rather than merely obtaining relief.
Homeopathy is an important form of preventative medicine, which corrects disturbances before disease symptoms have an opportunity to develop. This means that more serious conditions are avoided such as the many auto immune diseases that we now have. It can also help if you 'just don't feel right' (even when conventional
medical test results are clear). Homeopathy strengthens your immune system and reduces your susceptibility to sickness.
The aim of homeopathy is rapid, gentle and permanent healing. It may help relieve the symptoms of the various ailments which people take for granted or have been told to live with, such as hay fever, asthma, constipation, migraine, eczema, menstrual problems, menopause, chronic exhaustion, osteoarthritis, etc. The use of homeopathy often avoids surgery. It may be useful in conditions for which conventional medicine either has nothing to offer or offers only palliative care or symptom control management, such as allergic complaints, arthritis and digestive problems.
Homeopathy is also suitable for mental, emotional and spiritual disturbances as well as physical problems. During a consultation we will discuss your feelings, how you are reacting, dealing with life, stress levels, as well as looking at your likes, dislikes, character and temperament. There are possibly the most remedies for symptoms of the mind than in any other section of homeopathic literature. And both physical and mental and emotional symptoms are treated together, as remember, you are treated as a whole being.
The results of good homeopathic treatment can improve your mental outlook on life, increase your energy level and remove physical problems that have been bothering you for years.
Homeopathic remedies may be used alongside conventional drugs. Treatment may help reduce or even remove the need for many drugs, but this must be done gradually under the supervision of the GP.

the history of homeopathy
Homeopathy is a holistic medical therapy based on the teachings of Samuel Hahnemann. The primary rule of Homeopathy is The Law of Similars which is used to treat people (and animals, and more recently plants) with minute doses of substances.
In the early 1800s German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, was motivated by what he saw as the barbaric medical practices of his day to begin his search for "rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of health...in the shortest, most reliable, and most harmless way". He experimented upon himself and formulated the principles of homeopathy. He was tireless in his efforts and greatly antagonised many of the conventional medical practitioners of his day, but the queue of patients he saw at his practice in Paris right up until his death thought differently and were very grateful for the beneficial results of his treatment, whilst
a number of other doctors saw the sense of his approach and were inspired to train with him, going on to bring homeopathy to a wider audience in other countries and establishing homeopathic clinics and hospitals.
The term ''homeopathy'' comes from the Greek ''homeo'' meaning ''like'', or ''similar'', and ''pathos'' meaning ''suffering'' or ''disease''. The law upon which homeopathy is based is that of ''like is cured by like'', a concept introduced by the ancient philosopher, Hippocrates.
The ''Law of Similars'' states that a potentised substance can cure whatever symptoms it produces in a healthy person. Imagine how it feels when you have drunk too much coffee? You can’t sleep, your heart is racing, you frequently need visits to the bathroom, you are shaking, sweating and your head buzzing, because Coffea Crudum (coffee) is a stimulant. For example, in its potentised form Coffea can be helpful for insomnia caused by racing thoughts and the frequent need to pass urine.
I have been seeing Polly for over ten years now for Homeopathic and Reiki treatments and recently advise on a my plant based way of eating.
During my twenties I was drawn to Homeopathy due to my allergies and reactions to conventional drugs and my frustration over my repeated visits to my doctor for the same issue.
Polly has worked and supported me with my symptoms as a result of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, as well as any general day to day ailments including anxiety.
Her holistic approach is one of looking at my overall health and well-being and not treating a specific symptom.
From the moment I met Polly I felt a sense of calm and assurance. She listens to what is happening in your life and treats your body as a whole. I believe that my excellent recovery is due to Polly's remedies and my own positive attitude to treatment.
