Homeopathy is one of the most respected and widely used complementary therapies available. It is safe and effective system of natural medicine that has been practiced successfully for over 200 years. It was recognised by an Act of Parliament in 1948 as a safe form of medical treatment and is currently available on the NHS.
How does it work?
Homeopathy works by stimulating and supporting the immune system to begin the process of cure. Rather than suppress symptoms from taking conventional medicine, this stimulus will assist your own system to clear itself of any symptoms of imbalances and to fight illness, helping to return to good health. It can be used alongside conventional medicine and works on both acute and chronic disease.
Homeopathy works on the principles of:
Like cures like: A homeopath uses remedies that treat a condition with medicine made from a substance that would produce similar symptoms in a healthy person. For example, coffee, in large doses causes sleeplessness in a healthy person but in small homeopathic dose it can help the patient to sleep naturally.
Dilutions: Only a very minute amount of the active ingredient is used in a specially prepared form.
Holistic approach: The whole person, encompassing physical, emotional and mental aspects must be taken into consideration when choosing a remedy
Unlike some conventional drugs, homeopathic medicines are non-addictive, have no dangerous side effects (as the active ingredients are present in extremely low concentrations) and can be safely given to pregnant women, babies and children. It can help with most physical and emotional health complaints, holistically and naturally!
The first consultation usually takes about 60 minutes. During this session Marika will ask about your symptoms as well as your current emotional state, your fears, personal and family medical history, your lifestyle, personality and eating habits.
After assessing your condition and based on the findings a prescription of homeopathic remedies will be provided together with advice on nutrition and lifestyle. Sometimes Marika may recommend nutritional supplements as well as herbal medicines and flower essences.
The follow up consultations usually takes about 30 minutes. During this time Marika will interpret your response to the remedy and decide on how to continue treatment.
Homeopathy can have an immediate effect, however, it could also take time to unravel deeper health issues and allow time for your body to heal itself. Normally it is recommended that you have two to three follow up appointments to gain relief of any long standing ailments, although the length of treatment depends on the duration of the problem and the individual circumstances. Follow-up appointments should initially be every three-five weeks in order to assess your health and ensure that well-being is maintained.
